7437 tasting notes

admittedly i’ve had a litte wine now…so i’m not focused on this note. omgsrsly sent this to me and indicated on the bag that i should have it as a latte or nogtea…so i did. and it was goo esp once i added a little vanilla sugar to the mix.

…also jr mints + red wine = happy place for Sil.

jr mints and red wine? interesting. :)

Sil

oh yes… but like WITH the wine… both in your mouth at the same time – most people drink wine with a meal and forget to actually have both in their mouth at the same time…not that i’m saying jr mints are a meal…i mean they could be..

OMGsrsly

That… mint and chocolate and wine? All together?!

I’ve been craving red wine something fierce these past few days. Chocolate and red wine, I can see, but the peppermint, I can’t even imagine what that would be like.

Sil

we did a junk food pairing at a winery. It made my day our of all the junk food we did. the others were chips, chocolate chip cookies and twizzlers. All paired with different types of wines.

Sil

also depends on the red – but i haev a good sense for what i like when doing it heh now

drank Citrus Grove by Tealish
7437 tasting notes

Another one from omgsrsly this one smells divine. what’s confusing to me is that this tastes like a fairly normal citrus blend, but there are peppercorns, coconut and cardamom in here…but all i’m really getting is lemon orange citrus delight. Not that i’m complaining, but it seems funny that i’m not getting some of the other flavours in here. either way, still a fun cup and tasty!

drank Snow Apple Spice by Silk Road
7437 tasting notes

Apple teas are a dime a dozen. 95% of them are also spiced apple teas – cinnamon or otherwise. this one is no exception but it’s still pretty decent. there’s a little vanilla here to smooth out the cinnamon, and while the ingredients mention ginger, i’m not getting any. either way, this is tasty but nothing i need in my cupboard on a permanent basis! thanks omgsrsly

drank Lime Green with Envy by BlendBee
7437 tasting notes

LIME TEA YAY! i love lime teas as a general rule. omgsrsly picked this one up for me and even though it’s a green tea (all the good lime ones are) – i am a fan. it’s more sour than sweet, and i’m ok with that. While this is good hot, also hoping the cold brew of this one will be tasty. thank you my tea friend! like this one!

OMGsrsly

It was super sweet when I had the sample at the Amoda booth. I asked, and they said they didn’t sweeten it! Wonder why it was so sweet…

Fjellrev

Mmm, lime teas.

drank Peach Melba by A Quarter to Tea
7437 tasting notes

Another one from the lovely dexter to satisfy my need to order. let me first say, that i am so tired of peach teas. they all taste the same and while it was nice once…now i’m over them.

…but i LOVE this tea. Honestly, it’s different from other peach teas – it’s got more going on here that makes this a win for me. For sure, this is carmelised and vanilla peach. so tasty!

drank Sangria White Tea by A Quarter to Tea
7437 tasting notes

Sample from dexter thank you! i always like trying white tea blends. While not always a fan of white teas straight, as blends they often have positive results for me. This one is no exception. While i wouldn’t call this one sangria exactly…the flavours are too delicate and not quite there, it does have a memory like quality of sangria too it. A really nice pairing of flavours that i can see being VERY tasty as a cold brew in summer.

drank Spumoni Green Tea by A Quarter to Tea
7437 tasting notes

Sample from dexter and onw i wasn’t sure since i don’t typically love spumoni but i don’t hate it. Also…green tea base? However, this one, even though i over steeped it :( was pretty decent. the base pairs nicely with the ingredients in this one and makes for a smooth cup of tea. Not going to rate it though, as this would never be a first choice for me. I DO very much appreciate the chance to try it out though, since you never know what might happen…tea is magic! :)

drank Sam Bodhi F.O.P. by Le Palais des Thes
7437 tasting notes

noms. another “long” day of work – i apparently was the only one to not get the memo that everyone is slacking for the next two days. I don’t mind so much because it’s a chance to get a ton of work done, but frustrating when the people who are supposed to be working, are clearly not really around or working. just take the time off if that’s how you roll.

anyway, lots of tea time for me thankfully, so there’s that.

All gone! finished up this sample as well today since my cupboard was just imploded. this was a sample from WP, so no worries there, but as a mental note i don’t think i need this one in my cupboard. it’s pleasant but not out of this world. And heaven knows. teas that are WOW are better than teas that are ok. :)

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.
