5600 Tasting Notes
I had a cu of this before passing the rest off to a tea friend who wants to try the two teas we have all blended, separately. (this + creme brulee). I actually think i could live without the creme brulee tea and just keep this one on hand, though i do love the taste of the two blended. Perfect cup to get my going out of the house. Costco/the mall today before the holiday tomorrow. It’ll be insane and i’ll hate it but it need to be done.
ok, it’s decided. I’m over this tea. The first cup i had was really great and then subsequent cups have been truly “meh” I’m not sure if it’s because the flavouring changed really quickly or what. At least i tried it though. Passing this on to a random steesterite for them to try and then pass along if they don’t like it haha. SOMEONE probably needs to pick up all the teas at my place…. just saying haha
I had a cup of this last night after we made pumpkin scones and watched some tv. It was a really nice end to a really productive day. We’re trying to get the rest of the house in order since i haven’t been around to help clean/organise things and we still haven’t got our art up on the wall from moving. so time to get through the last of those little things! I don’t know that i’ll pick up any more of this again, but i enjoyed the small sample amount that i went though :)
roswell strange sent this along as a surprise halloween treat and it was awesome! Love the halloween card and the surprise, because well surprise tea is ALWAYS awesome. This tea falls a little flat for me. Maybe it’s the base, but it’s kind of like an almost pumpkin spice sort of tea but then it gets lost along the way. However, it was still a decent enough cup, and it’s tea from a friend and one i haven’t tried before so YAY! :) thanks so much RS!
Nicole sent this one for me to try and i’m glad for it, since I am a fan of trying Norbu teas. Their min quantities are 100g, so it’s hard to get a sense of what i’d like before buying. Thankfully i do have steepster friends willing to split orders or, in the case of nicole (and others!) send samples to me.
This is a very light, refreshing tea. The mint in this isn’t overpowering and blends nicely with the darjeeling. There are under notes of a nature – reminding me more of a black tea, than a darjeeling (yes i know darjeelings are black..but they’re quasi black imo). i like this quite a bit. Thanks Nicole!
