5945 Tasting Notes
im a fan of this one, though i likely shouldn’t be today since lack of food today will likely lend itself to caffeine hitting me pretty hard lol. I really want to add just a bit of cream to this to really through the flavours together. I’m not getting the spiciness that kittenna did but i AM getting that espresso flavour that is blending really nicely with the black base. I think i steeped this one a little longer than 3 mins by accident and still there’s no bitterness or astringency so that’s a positive.
I think this could be one of those teas that I have in my cupboard every so often when i need a more coffee like creamy experience.
SIPDOWN! mwahahaha my cupboard goes down, kittenna’s goes up lol Just enough in the bag Rarietea and i split to have a cup for me and a cup for kittenna. Although i reaaaaallly don’t like coconut all that much in teas, we tried this one at the tea festival and it wasn’t too bad. So it made it’s way into our mini purchase since raritea looooveeeesss the coconut!
Now that i’m having it at home, it’s not tooo bad. I am certainly good with this one cup but only because i’m drinking a tea that tastes like tanning lotion smells like. delicious! but oddly weird as well :)
soooo many teas that i’m so close to sipdown with. Curse you dinosara! lol I managed to get a steep in of this in the afternoon in the 5 mins i took to go pee. I really am sick of all the issues we’ve been having since it means not only can i not do my own work but i also haven’t gotten around to the work of the person i’m backing up.
This was a really pleasant cup of tea that was much needed. Best part about today? (not) I got all the way home…12 hours after i arrived at work, and there are MORE FREAKIN ISSUES! gimme a break. thank god i’m home with my tea.
Soooo i can get behind this tea. One of my coworkers who knows that i love tea saw the kind of week i’ve been having and not only went to her stash of tea to brew me a cup of tea and brought it to my desk, but also handed off a few of her samples to me as she’d recently been in to david’s to buy new teas. One of the teas she had purchased with this one.
Overall? not a bad little tea. It’s not nearly as artificial tasting as a bunch of teas i’ve had recently and it smells nice. so today…that’s about all it takes. is it friday yet?
So if i’m going to catch up to dinosara, i’m going to have to start focusing on the bags of tea where i’m only a few cups away from being done. So with that in mind, I’m having this one today. Dry aroma smells decent enough however the brewed tea isn’t anything much to write home about. Another diappointing 52 teas blend, though at least this one doesn’t have that weird chemically taste the others seem to be having. I still need to air my teas out and see if that helps.
269….12 days to sip down as much as possible! here goes nothing! :) If nothing else, this is incentive to try all the teas that i have in my cupboard.
I feel like i need to go apologise to walter bishop. I’ve totally been calling that tea almost the same thing as this tea…but apparently it’s actually just the MEMORY of this tea. I much prefer walter bishop now that i’ve drank them both in closer proximity to one another. Not that i don’t enjoy this tea but i REALLY like the smooth creaminess of the walter bishop tea better. Dropping the rating on this one a little since after 1.5 bags of this, it’s fading on me. It’ll be one of those teas that might cycle through my cupboard once a year but nothing that needs to stay in as a permanent blend unless i’m looking for more caffeine free blends…not that caffeine seems to affect me. I still feel compelled to have a bunch on hand, just in case, for guests.
