5599 Tasting Notes
Sooooo good! Had this today as well as it had been a long time since i’d had a chance to sit down and enjoy MY grapefruit tea. I’m so impressed with how much this tastes like grapefruit. It was totally worth the wait to finally get this one from Stacy. I’m not sure she’ll ever really want to tell me about upcoming teas though with all the poking i did in anticipation (is it done now? how about now? now? when will i have it? naaaaaaaaooooooo!) :) I highly reccommend this to anyone in search of a grapefruit tea. So good!
Random Teavivre Sample of the day!
Wheee! I accidentally ordered a sample of this in addition to the sample that comes in their black tea sample. Luckily though, I’m enjoying this one. SO much so that I was just kind of sipping on it this morning without thinking about the fact that this was a brand new tea! gasp the horror! :)
I can totally get behind this tea. It’s the first dragon pear i’ve had so it was fun getting to watch them unfurl as it stepped this morning. I’m sipping on this tea while munching on the last of my cardamon and orange shortbread…yes you heard that right. Visit shortbread.ca if you want to see what i’m talking about…sweet AND savoury shortbread! I am also digging their garlic and asiago….though not with tea :)
Ok on with the tea…. This tea is much more chocolatey than other blacks that i’ve had that I enjoy. I wish there was a bit more maltiness to it, but it’s also nice not to have that total malty taste up front for a change. It’s on the lighter side of blacks that i typically enjoy but it’s delicious nonetheless!
The more i drink this, the more i am really enjoying that this is a more “pure” black in that there’s just the dominante chocolate flavour coming through. So glad i got to try this and happy that I have a bunch more thanks to my order mistake lol
This came in the December Amoda Tea box! They’re a Canadian Company so if fellow Canucks are looking for a monthly tea box, this one is great value for your buck and has so far been an enjoyable time for me (this is from my third month). They also ship to the US (and maybe elsewhere?) for my friends down south.
I have been off of minty teas as of late but wanted a few cups tonight of tea that wouldn’t keep me up all night IF the caffeine decided to hit me. I am pretty happy with this blend over all! The minty is just the right kind of minty – that leaves my chest happy when i breath in after drinking some but the chocolate really helps to balance is out and dial back the intensity. I really enjoyed this one tonight!
Bumped the rating on this one a bit. Steeped this for about 6 mins. While the tea now leaves my mouth a little dry, there’s much more interesting flavour things happening. There’s a sweetness to this, and almost an appley taste….and almost a caramel taste. Really interesting to say the least. This might be good with a bit of milk later.
I can understand why this tea is popular. I like that the floral notes aren’t really strong, so it really is more of a green cherry tea. However, as is often the case, the “weight” of the tea just isn’t enough for me. I love thick, full bodied delicious teas. I still think this is a nice tea but it’s nothing i need to pick up again. I do really like the cherry taste, so now i just need t find a cherry black tea :) or maybe a roasted oolong… stacy i’m looking at you! lol
mmmm decupboarding this to give it to a work colleague who made the mistake of saying to me today “tea! i need to go buy tea!” uh no…what do you want…i’ll bring some samples tomorrow lol.
This was a lovely tea from Frank that i still enjoy but i’m hoping will inspire my workmate to order teas with me lol
mmmm second morning tea! I need to stop looking at the internet for tea. I keep wanting to place more orders and i REALLY don’t need more tea. I think part of the draw for me though, is a)getting mail and b)having new things to try out! I’ve made a resolution this year though to try and get my cupboard down to 100 teas by black friday of 2013 so that I can place a few orders at that time lol
This tea is still one delicious tea! I find it soothing and love how stacy has captured the cantalope flavour. It’s not wonder this one was winning awards. Still really happy i took a chance and picked this one up even if the name totally threw me off.
This is a delicious tea! I’m really happy that I got to try this one from Teavivre. It’s a beautiful tea. The first sips of this give way to a medium malty tea, that tapers off with notes of honey. I’m looking forward to seeing how the resteeps work out with this one. I’d rank it up there with my other favourite blacks.
