6404 Tasting Notes
oh god. So i couldn’t find this one on steepster because it was hiding away from the rest of the secret garden teas. I’ve located it now and tried to condence the listing but at the time i brewed this, i was just thinking some sort of black blend.
firs sip.. ah gawd! it’s…it’s jasmine! and blergamot! IN THE SAME CUP! aaaaah! yeah that’s pretty much how that went. Still though, i’ll try nearly anything. and i suppose if you like that sort of thing and it wasn’t your mortal enemy…this would be a decent cup as the base blends nicely with those ingredients. bah. lol
this was my morning tea today, though it’s not exactly this tea. A few of us are experimenting with vanilla bean and this was a trial to see how the blending is coming along. so far so good, it’s not nearly as vanilla-y as i want it to be but it it IS really tastey. the vanilla adding a little creaminess to this base. I’ll have to let is sit a little longer and maybe add a bit of vanilla powder as well, see if that helps make it a richer taste. so far though, not too shabby!
another tea from Anlina that i had the other night. This one is a must try for coconut lovers. That being said, i’m not a HUGE fan of coconut as i find in tea blends that it goes rancid fairly quickly and sometimes the tastes is too intense. That being said, i can understand how folks who love coconut would enjoy this a bunch. It’s creamy and chocoaltey and very much like a dessert tea. Sadly the coconut is too much for me to really love it. It’s more personal preference than this being a bad tea. :)
noms. I am lazy these days. Maybe it’s not lazy so much as…. drained. I keep falling behind with things – tea related and otherwise. I had this one a couple days ago – feeling like very little progress is happening with my tea cupboard this year. lol it’s almost april and i’m still well over what i ended last year with. Still enjoying the teas though, so that’s all that really matters. :)
