7163 Tasting Notes
not a fan of this one, which is a little sad because i had high hopes for this one. Thanks for sending it my way though dexter! All i could taste in this was the mate, which i don’t love, but i keep trying to enjoy. I will hold off rating this one in case it’s just a matter of not hitting the sweet spot this time around. thanks dexter!
sipdown! (207) not too shabby an assam from terri/nofars. It’s not my favourite but i like seeing the differences in various assams. This one is less bold, has a bit of astringency and isn’t very malty but it’s got a strength to it that i like. and the flavour is pretty decent! thanks guys!
Another delicious black from dexter! operation get under 200 this weekend so i can make a teeny, tiny purchase is in effect! lol. I ended up drinking this one without really stopping to focus on it while doing this dishes this morning. What i can say is that this is somewhere between a fruity tea and a malty tea. It’s got a bit of both happening, though not overwhelmingly so. I really need to place an order with this company soonish…
woot! another tea from dexter and one of the ones i was most wary about, though less so once i read her review. I am one of those sweet potato haters. I think it’s because they’re “sweet” lol However this tea is really nice! It reminds me of the sort of pumpkin spice theme that happens around this time, but it’s not pumpkin, it’s more sweet potato. The base is still present, and the flavours blend together really well. I couldn’t drink this all the time, but this is quite good. Makes me wonder how it would fare as a latte! Thanks for sharing dexter!
This was another interesting tea from Dexter. I don’t quite know how to describe it. I would order this again to try it, and i’m sending on a bit to my tea sister terri so that she can try it. I like that it’s rolled like oolongs typically are. The taste isn’t super bold, but there’s enough going on here that i am enjoying the cups i’ve had (it resteeps nicely).
Thanks for sharing some interesting teas with me dexter!
This is another tea that dexter sent my way, and i’m glad she did as my first order from tealux i wasn’t all that impressed, though to be fair we ordered mostly flavoured teas. Their straight teas seem to be where it’s at though, given the few samples i’ve had since then. This one is no exception. While it’s not a blow your mind out of the water sort of tea, it’s a nice light black tea that i drank up and was finished before i’d really realised it. :) I’m not sure i’d order it again given it’s “averageness” but i would never turn my nose up at this one. It’s a good tea for people who are just getting in to black, i would think as it’s not astringent and it’s not that in your face sort of bold black. :)
dear dexter. I hate you just a little. this tea is delicious! (but also on the expensive side) but i want more. I’m torn between sharing with my tea sister terri and drinking up the rest but i’m sure that i’ll send the lsat little bit to her lol. But now of course, i’ve spent the past 30 mins on the tealux website again, building a cart. Because i want more of this and there IS a sale this weekend…and then i could get more of this and share it with tastybrew too…and the girls here because this is yummy! It’s like bolder breakfast only more cocoa-ey and totally straight, whereas bolder breakfast has flavouring.
Seriously…if you like cocoa notes in your tea, just go buy some of this. It’s super tasty!
I had this yesterday because i need to stop hoarding teas that i enjoy. Now that it’s fall, there are a number of teas that i find myself wanting to drink. This is one of them. I did find yesterday myself wishing yesterday that this was more maple and less pecan. Not that i have anything against pecans but i really enjoy the maple flavouring that stacy uses. Overall though, a great cup as usual!
WOOHOO! I did it! Sipdown of a 52 tea that’s been sitting in my cupboard for far too long lol Must stop hoarding them heh. This also means that i’ve managed to bring my count of 52 teas down to a mere 6! only one of which do i really want to hoard (walter bishop i’m looking at you).
This wasn’t a bad tea, but the marshmallow wasn’t my thing until i started making these as lattes. Once i found that sweet spot, it was all good! thanks frank!
