4923 Tasting Notes

Operation Sipdown is in full effect! I’m trying to get through as many of the teas that I can before December hits, as I forsee christmas tea purchases in my future. I’ve managed to sort through my cupboard this weekend and now I have a pile of teas that are older or close to being finished that I can work on over the next few weeks :)

I still enjoy this tea as an every day sort of tea. It’s got a bit of flavoring without being overpowering so I won’t get tired of it.

I did a «clean up» myself this summer, or so I thought! For some strange reasons, I forgot that clean ups work only if you don’t order new stuff a zillion times after you did it! Now I’m back to square one, damn it!

Oh i’ve got three incoming orders plus the travelling tea box and a christmas swap! haha BUT at least i have a good idea of what I need to drink first…

I’ve been adding splashes of this to my other matchasmoothies, so this morning I opted for a purely caramel smoothie! I’d almost forgotten how wonderful the caramel tastes on it’s own. I really do enjoy the 50/50 base though i’d be curious as well to see how a white base or entirely black base would fair. I’ve ordered a re-stock of this as well since it appears that I’m starting to run low again on this one. :)

Cold brewed this last night and tried to drink it this morning. I’m not sure if I just brewed it too strong, but the cold brew bought out more of the flavours i didn’t like. I’m going to send the rest of this off to a good home I think since I don’t appear to enjoy it as much hot brewed, and cold is off my list entirely.

drank Grapefruit Dragon by Butiki Teas

Still no score on this one since I’m waiting on that order to arrive from Stacy. I broke down this evening and had a bit more of the sample sht sent me with the other base. I’m still trying not to drink it so that I can do a taste comparision when my order gets here…sooon… sigh Still i do love this grapefruit tea. It’s one of the few flavours that my other half says I was stalking stacy about. Whether he’s right on that count is another story but i’m happy it’s hear and it’s MINE! :)

Butiki Teas

Hasn’t arrived yet? Geez. Hopefully, it will make it there soon.

Butiki Teas

Perhaps a little bit of stalking was involved. Hahahah.

I’m guessing it’ll show up this week. Usually takes 10 ish business days. I’m patient. I counted my teas today lol

drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas

Finally got around to cold brewing this one and its delicious! I added a bit of honey to bring out the sweetness just a bit and it is fantastic! I think this will be wonderful when summer rolls around again as a cold brew. Really digging the way the mango pops as a cold brew with the little bit of sweetener.

This one has just never worked for me…

drank Caramel Cheesecake Black Tea by 52teas

mmmm quick tea with lunch before we head to the gym. I still think the caramel pumpkin spice cheesecake one is way better than this, but this one will do in a pinch. Having fun dorting through my teas again today :)

Alphakitty

Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake is like this tea’s older, more sophisticated cousin. It’s the one you really want to hang out with, but Caramel Cheesecake’s nice as well and will do when CPC is nowhere to be found.

drank Black-n-Blue by SerendipiTea

Another tea from my Amoda October box!

I quite enjoy the blueberry flavour in this tea. Theres a nice balance between the base and the blueberries. Also, the blueberries don’t have an artificial taste to them. It’s a bit like blueberry jam filled pastry or something along those lines. I think this was a great choice by Amoda.

drank Apricot Guayusa by Butiki Teas

Mmmmm trying to sort through my teas and figure out where I stand with the teas I have. As a result moving ratings around and trying to figure out what I still love or don’t now that I’ve had a few months of tasting a lot more teas :)

I’m dropping this rating a little, not because I don’t enjoy the tea, but because I’ve found others now (from butiki even) that I love even more than this one. I really like the sweet, earth, apricoty feel of this tea.

Azzrian

I am trying to do the same thing – I have some teas getting to be around 9 months old I need to either decide to keep, or send off, etc.

Kittenna

I have some teas nearing a year! :O Plus some that are way older, but if I focused on them, I could probably finish them off in a couple weeks.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
