4044 Tasting Notes
I was a little wary of this one given that i’m not a fan of lavender. There was just something about the smell that i wasn’t a fan of. Thanks go to KallieBoo! for sharing this one with me, though after tasting it, was not something that i can drink :) On the upside, it has peaked my interest in this tea company since the tea base and the fig taste hiding behind the lavender was quite nice. So still a win in my books! :)
Figured i should cut back on the caffeine tonight/this morning? though who knows why. It doesn’t seem to be affecting me either way and either way i need to be up all night lol. I’m glad my other half is getting sleep though. I suspect i’ll be close to useless tomorrow…but here’s hoping i can get a mid morning nap in…maybe? i hope? still enjoying this one a lot…just wish it was a little more toffee like tonight!
wheeee! it’s after midnight…which means everything is ridiculously funny to me. I COULD sleep for an hour before our mid evening call..but i’m not sure there’s a point. Soooo i’m watching TV and the “married with children” theme song is playing in my head. i pulled this one out and had my usual sil sized cup of this. I am digging this quite a bit tonight. I should have tried it with a little sugar but i forgot.
I had this in latte form earlier tonight. I’ve got a long night ahead of me and i’m already crashing. Testing for work tonight, and amazingly enough they’re ahead of schedule…but that means less sleep ironically enough since the schedule before they were ahead gave me a bit more sleep time. I have a funny feeling the next few days are going to be filled with cranky tired Sil. But this cup of tea helped! Hard to believe i’m almost out of this one though heh. At least i’ve got another vanilla black in my cupboard to move on to after this one :)
Another one from theteafairy I need to try this cold brewed. This had just enough pineapple that i enjoyed it, but it made me crave butiki’s pineapple oolong for that sheer juicy pineapple feeling. I have a sneaking suspicion this one will be even better chilled over ice (or cold brewed) with just a splash of sweetner. still a fun time though! thanks teafairy!
sipdown! (168) I pulled this one out tonight so that i could try another tea Gschwen34u0234uweiroweri tea before i am back in CHicago. Yeah that’s right…stupid letters i never put in the right order. the Tea G! ;) While i don’t love this nearly as much as my friends to the west, it IS a lovely tea. I like the body of the tea base that doesn’t get lost that flavours. I may need to look at picking up a bit more of this to play with it some more. Thanks again MissB!
sipdown! Thanks for sending this my way MissB I think that this would probably be pretty darn delicious as a cold brew. This initial smelle is a little artificial but once it brews up, it’s a really nice raspberry citrus tea. I wouldn’t call it LIME right off the bat, but the combination of the raspberry lime is a pretty decent blending. I’m really happy to be getting a chance to try out this company’s flavoured teas since i’m sure i’ll be ordering from them in the future to try their straight teas!
sipdown! (170) Not bad…down 8 today and tried a few of my samples from the teafairy. Still have more in me though now i have to run some errands so we can get back and make the roast for tonight! I quite like this one, so of course i’m torn now since i might be able to get over to their chicago store next week. To order, or not to order…that IS the question. Thanks for sharing this one with me MissB!
hey guys…guess what?! I found a tea i like from Adagio. Clearly it’s not a black base tea hahahahaha KallieBoo! sent this my way and i am glad that she did. I really like how the blueberry and orange blend together. I think the only thing that would make this even more tasty yummy for me would be the addition of a teeeeny bit of vanilla :) thanks a bunch kallie!
the teafairy sent this one my way with a note that she doesn’t like it much but given the flavours, thought that i might enjoy it. I’m still undecided. I can taste the vanilla, but not so much the hazelnut. I think this one may also be a bit picky in terms of steeping times so i may need to dial the temp and timing back. Not a bad start though.
