Backlogging!

So this tea? It’s pretty delicious, but it’s too sweet for me. It really is like a cup of maple syrup, dilluted down a bit. I also sometimes wish Della Terra would get rid of the colourful candy bits they put into their teas. They often don’t add to the flavour and just mess up my brewing baskets.

If you enjoy maple syrup and sweet teas though, this is a good tea. Just a bit much for me :)

mmmmm this is a delicious tea! It won’t become a regular in my cupboard, but i may treat myself to the occasional sample from time to time. :) Really nice tea that I had the pleasure of running through a number of steepings on the weekend.

Backlogging! Had this in smoothie form and immediately regreted it lol. Don’t get my wrong, it’s a tasty matcha but it’s one of those flavours that I will always want to drink hot. Cold just isn’t happening :)

I feel there is likely to be a flurry of these now that steepster is up and running. it’s funny to me how dependant i am on being able to get my thoughts down asap. heh

In some ways i’m greatful for the excuse to try this again soon since steepster was down. I had this in latte form on the weekend and it was DELICIOUS!

First Review? Backlogging from the weekend so I’ll be posting another of these again. What i recall from this tea though, that it was a nice fruity tea blend. I would also really like to try this cold sometime :)

drank Orange Brulee by Della Terra Teas

This tea goes by another name now on della terra’s website – orange brulee. THIS is more of what i expected from the orange blossom oolong that i had before this tea. Not a bad little tea. I’ll be reviewing this again though since with the steepster outage i was terrible at taking notes down.

I’m even worse: you didn’t take notes whilst tasting notes were down, but I didn’t drink tea! Eep!

Sil

Bad Nik! Bad!

drank Orange Blossom Oolong by TeaGschwendner

Backlogging so my apologies for the crappy tea notes.

I was not impressed with this tea. It was bland, unexciting and tasted a lot like mildly flavoured water. I’ll try this again especially as I forgot to write down my impressions at the time.

Travelling Tea Box!

This tea wasn’t in the database as near as I can tell so I started a new thread. The company isn’t in here either. So first and first! No steeping instructions on the website so I went for a lower temp and my usual 3 mins.

This is a light tea. There’s a bit of floral notes in this, but nothing overpowering. I don’t totally taste ‘pomegranate’ but there is a fruity taste to this tea. This has a nice light gold colouring to is as well. I’m glad a have a bit more of this to play with later. :)

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I have been thinking about pomegranate, lately. Every time someone mentions being able to discern a particular essence, fragrance, or flavour in a tea, I wonder whether I’d be able to pick it out. I have eaten plenty of pomegranate, but I realised that I cannot really pinpoint the flavour, beyond a certain sweetness, tartness and juiciness. The other day, I ate the actual fruit. And what I discovered was that I still couldn’t say ah ha, so this is pomegranate. Even the fruit itself, in spite of being one of the best ones I’ve had, was still just a nebulous mixture of sweet, tart, and juicy. So weird! I can’t think of many (any?) other things with such an elusive flavour.

drank Good Morning Sunshine by Butiki Teas
5357 tasting notes

So what I’ve discovered about good morning sunshine is that I love it cold brewed IF I use the left over tea from an initial hot steeping lol. This brings the intense lemon down a few notches and really makes for a nice iced brew. Pretty sure that this will be what I do anytime I make it hot!

Preparation
Iced

trouble with Mate and Guayasa I find is that it goes stale pretty quickyl :(

BoxerMama

I ordered some of this and I’m looking forward to trying it!

Helena

It’s very tasty :D If my tasting notes button was working there would be a post of this from this morning… and then some matcha :D

BoxerMama

I have had about 6 different kinds that I wanted to play catch up on. :( Last time I had a day off this happened with netflix.

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.
