4644 Tasting Notes
i tried this one cold brewed for the hell of it. Turns out that was also a good idea as this is ALSO tasty as a cold brew. this is like everything good that i like about lime gelato without the extra sugar AND with a kick of something else going on in the background that makes this tastier and more fun. I’m really enjoying this one, so i may need to look at picking up some more in the future. Thanks for sharing this one missB!
i had this a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against…wait a minute sorry… um.. as i was saying..
i had this a while ago today. I remember enjoying this a lot more the first time i had it, so i suspect that the blend that i had this time around is a variation on a theme with slightly different puerh or something. On the whole this version was a lot less yummy and tasty. But it IS darn pretty. :)
I’m going to have to agree with CharlotteZero on this one in that it smells wonderful, but it one of those teas you have to brew cooler and for less time, lest it turn into a messy less amazing tea. All that aside though, this was pretty tasty, and i’m looking forward to playing with it a bit more before i land on a final rating :)
charlotteZero was awesome enough to send this my way in a recent swap. Admittedly i had this a million hours ago but there’s been a whole lot of work, dinner, talking to my parents and looking at an apartment that got in the way of me writing about it until now. What i recall was the deliciousness of this one in strawberry form. THIS is actually what i wish marco polo was, and isn’t for me. Better review to come in the future when i spend more time rolling around with this one.
this has been on my wishlist for a while and dinosara was kind enough to send some my way for me to try. “But Sil! it’s an oolong” you might say…. I’m well aware, but i’m always open to trying things that a bunch of ppl seem to love. Turns out? this is a really boring tea for me. It’s not even oo-wrong…it’s just meh. It smells delicious in dry form, but then brewing it up…SNORE FEST. it’s not even enough of an oolong to get me all riled up about how i don’t like oolongs. it’s really just sort of there. hanging out. being BOOOOORIIIINGGGGGG…. lol
I’m going to have to give this one another shot. Maybe i’ll prepare it like traditional chai next time to see if that works better. Brewed as a tea, not in milk, this is a bit bitter with a weird after taste. I’ll try it as a milk brewed chai and see if that makes it all better, since some chais are meant to be milk, miilk, milk, milk, milk!
I feel like i’ve been drinking this tea forever. I need to learn to open my larger quantity of teas sooner so that i have more time to drink them up. lol Not that i HAD to finish this one, but it’s part of my “drink older teas” goal. Aiming to get through all teas up to and including December by the end of June. Downside? Black friday sales hahahahaha. I quite like this tea, though some times it feels like this one has a personality. Some days it’s not as delicious as i remember it being…and other days it makes me fall in love with it all over again. Still a great staple to have in my cupboard and a fantastic offering from Teavivre! I recommend checking it out if you’re a fan of black teas :)
dexter sent this one my way from my wishlist. let me tell you…THIS is a happy pear tea. happy happy happy. It’s not a green base, which makes me SUPER excited and happy. While i enjoy green pear teas, they’re still not quite what i want. This one smells like juicy pear…but not fruity pear…which i know sounds weird. This is that smell…when you first cut into a pear that’s about to be over ripe… the base is still present, so the flavouring is subtle. It’s not an in your face sort of tea…it’s one to sit and enjoy and let it wrap it’s tasty pear around around you. thanks a bunch dexter! If i find this at winners…i will be a happy lady!
missB sent this one my way. it’s an intersting tea…not really sure how i feel about it. I think i’m landing on the side of, thanks but no thanks… this has a quite distinctive taste…and i’d argue that once it cools a bit, it does start to taste more like a stronger alcohol…which, lets be honest, if i’m going for that, i might as well drink the alcohol! still, a unique tea to try. thanks missb!
