6852 Tasting Notes
bwahaha SIPDOWN! I had a small cup of this tonight to say farewell since i’m including this in omgsrsly’s package! All i can say is.. not cheating! haha. I do find that this one is one that i’d drink again. I wouldn’t go out of my way to order it, but if i needed something to get to free shipping or some such, this would be one to consider :)
SIPDOWN! (202..not that it means anything since any time i get to 200 more tea just happens to arrive…) I received this as a sample from purearoma with my order – it’s not something i ever would have picked up myself and since terri sent me a bunch of random herbs, she’s totally getting the rest of this hahaha!
Also..though it’s kind of a silly “tea” for it to happen with, this is officially the 1000th tea i’ve tasted since joining steepster! go me!
verdict on this one? It smells awful, but it’s not a terribly “tea.” I’m finding it sort of relaxing and one of those teas i want to add a bit of honey to, in order to bring out the sweetness. nothing i’d ever order on my own, but i don’t hate it.
hmmmm another tea added for kittenna I figure it’s payment for the tea i’m tasting! I like this one, and initially thought the smell was delicious but now it’s kind of too much lol. Theres a bit of an artificial taste in the background of this one, but it’s not overly so. It’s a pretty pleasant blend on the whole.
kittenna if you don’t like this one, i’ll have more please haha! This could be just a little more strawberry like and a little more ginger-y BUT that might just be my inability to have brewed it right the first time. But i like this. It’s fresh and fruity and minty and fun! but not overly minty… yay!
Another tea from Kittenna that i’m sneaking. I added it to Steepster since i figured i should do that with at least ONE of the teas of hers i’m trying to make her life easier. She can then just edit as she sees fit.
Not a huge fan of this one, but i don’t hate it. I wish the ginger was a little more prominent is all. Still a decent enough cup!
Morning tea today, and not much to say about it, besides the fact that it is a most satisfying cup this morning as I didn’t get enough sleep today. I am digging this one and it will likely be a reorder when I get through the last of my package.
Edit: also a sipdown as the rest is off to omgsrsly so that she can help convert her brother! hahaha
Sip down! home stretch to 200 (ignoring the orders that will be coming in soonish) I finished off the last of this as a latte this morning and man, I am sad to see it go. This was perfect for the fall, especially as a latte. I still prefer it to Starbucks PSL. If this is ever reblended, I may need to pick more up.
oh man..possibly the last tea of the evening and another from kittenna. I have a bunch of tea inbound, so i need to make a serious dent in my cupboard but i was damn proud of myself for getting through 15 teas this weekend! I didn’t expect to like this one, as i don’t generally like della terra’s chocolate teas. But this one is pretty decent. I don’t get a lot of the “salted” taste, but then truth be told, salted caramel always tastes like normal caramel to me after 1 sec in my mouth. I kinda of wonder how this would taste as a latte…
Stupid sprinkles. Altogether one I’m sneaking from Kittenna…this one smells like a giant bag of melted sprinkles and not like cotton candy at all. Tis is one that needs to steep for a bit longer since at a shorter steep I could taste that familiar rooibos taste. After steeping it for a little longer this became a better cup, but still doesn’t quite remind me of cotton candy. I think frank did a better job of it with his black tea base. Skill though, a pleasant cup AND is my 995th tea tasted lol
