7764 Tasting Notes
Soooo aliexpress is a dangerous place that i’m not sure i want to get into. However, there have been some great teas out of it that Tastybrew has shared with us through the BBB Box so i’m super happy that she continues to share with us.
I wasn’t sure about this one. It’s green. I opened it, and it smelled like something i should be eating, not drinking. I had faith in TB though…so i brewed some up today and took a sip.
This doesn’t remind me of Laoshan green. It’s different. It’s…like.spinach but softened…as it cools a sweetness comes out. not sure if i would call it caramel but it is sweet.
I like this. As a green it won’t be on my list of number 1 favourites but it IS tasty and i am glad to have tried it. :) I think if you were a fan of greens, this would be one for the list!
another delight from the BBB Box shared by terri. Working from home this morning so i’ve got time to enjoy my teas and drink a number of them :) While i quite enjoy this one, i think i like the other one from this morning just a little better. this one has a fruity sort of taste to it that i like, but will grow tired of eventually as it reminds me of apricots or peaches..
I received this from the company in the mail today and rather than have it eat up room in my cupboard, i opted to make a cup and toss the other cup’s worth in the box for Cavocorax so HA!
If you sign up for their newsletter they send you a sample every couple of months with their newletter which came with a coupon for free shipping (and their shipping is pretty expensive so not a bad deal) it’s enough to make me want to pick up a few more samples of a couple of their teas.
This tea isn’t bad – there are actual blueberries in this. However, this particular brand of rooibos is that kind that always seems to be present no matter what it’s blended with. so it’s not my favourite. But it’s not bad. this does taste more closely to wild blueberries as well than just normal old blueberries and that makes me happy. over all, not bad but not OMG AMAZING! :)
I had a cup of this tonight and i am now decuboarding it to add it to my swap pile. Again, not because i hate the tea but because i have outgrown it. I like the addition of the vanilla with the mint, but i’m growing tired of Della terra’s incessant need to add coloured crap to all their blends. my infusers says…NO MORE! so into the swap box it goes!
this was one of my other teas from today. I had a much less eventful day than yesterday but i still didn’t get much tea drinking done. I’m kind of hoping that tomorrow will make up for it since i have something waiting for me at the post office, a near future date with cavocorax to swap some things AND at probably 2-3 more packages coming in the mail in addition to my butiki order. and i’m contemplating a couple orders tonight haha.
Still loving this one, though i much prefer it in a mug to my travel mugs. there’s something lacking when i can’t inhale the delicious aroma while drinking it!
so i likely won’t get any sipdowns in today and my cupboard may likely explode in short order but I don’t care. I’m working from home tomorrow to get my tea drinking on AND next week should be a good one with at least 2 extra days of tea drinking, hanging at home enjoying things days!
I’m nearly done this one, but all that makes me want to do is plan another purchase. or five. that’s ok right? goals are meant to be broken as long as you’re having fun? :)
sometimes i wish the images in my head could just be there. I had a long day. started work at 7:15am….finished at 9:45. No dinner ‘cause i’m too exausted to eat and only a morning snack. But i came home…finished things up..watched some videos of golden retriever puppies…read some tea tasting notes and now…now i’m going to curl up in the bed and watch a short episode of bad tv before i head to bed.
However, i had this tea in the morning and it was amaaazing for today. so ha! more importantly as i do a touchdown victory dance in the end zone of my warped mind…i received my teavivre order today and I’M STILL UNDER 150! BOOOYAAAA!!!! short lived victories are still victories.. ohbyeah! oh yeah woot woot!
sipdown! YAY! maybe when i pick up my teavivre order tonight i won’t be above 150. maybe. Had this to kick off the morning with a splash of maple syrup to make it a little tastier. there’s a bit of snow falling here over the past couple of days so i am LOVING IT! nothing says winter like getting to wear my rubber boots to work everyday. :)
not a repurchase but nothing i would turn up my nose at in future :)
