5926 Tasting Notes
So while my cupbaord is currently sitting around 85 ish, it’s not technically accurate anymore because i have a number of random teas in my house from MissB who is sending things my way so that I can share with the group of us who are out east (and those in the middle too!). I’m trying to take some time during the week to try out the teas that she sent us so that i can get around to bundling the remainder up for the rest of the folks. If there isn’t enough to share (ie sample bags of a single tea where we all get different ones,) i’m not bothering to add them to steepster since they’re one shot deals.
Tonight’s random tea bag is from Sonnentor – and is a “boring” old ginger and lemon. I picked this one as i am a fan of ginger, and lemon is delicious as well. My german is a little rusty but this one appears to have peppermint, hibiscus, lemon, lemon grass…and a few others i don’t wanna translate. brewed, it’s lemon and ginger, but there’s also something in here that reminds me of licorice root (that weird sweetness) but i’m not sure if it IS licorice. On the whole, not a bad tea bag…
I’m not sure why i always feel compelled to buy this one from time to time. I think it’s because i want the rice. I already do LB + Cacao when i want a treat…but i like the rice. I just dislike the oolong. blech. That being said, this is still a tasty cup..just not nearly my favourite haha this was a fresh bag today so it was especially chocoalatey smelling and just a touch roastier than i remembered heh
I’ve been wanting to try this one for an eternity and cookies was kind enough to send a sample my way for me to try. turns out? it’s kinda like most of the other hojicha’s that i’ve tried. Same woodsy sort of taste that i rather enjoy, but certainly lacking any sort of caramel taste that i expected of this. It’s not BAD – like i said, i like hojicha…but i guess i just wanted more! haha thanks cookies!
Final Count: 80 (still not quite at 6 months old cupboard though…) bring it december!
