4829 Tasting Notes
FInally got around to trying this one today – it’s been one of the teas hiding in my cupboard from my last mini lupicia order with Cavo from a few months back. This isn’t half bad, though i think i want to try cold brewing it. I generally enjoy lupicia’s strawberry flavouring, and in this blend there is a hint of that sour note that rhubarb brings to the table…it’s just not overpowering of crazy sour. I think the cold brew might help to smooth out the black base in this case, which i think is what is making me not ADORE this one.
this is NOT going in my cupboard…bad Cavocorax! who sent this to me, forcing me to drink this right away so as not to increase my cupboard.
I was curious about this one because it’s pretty popular right now and seems to be getting good reviews on the whole. I haven’t yet ordered from WP yet – well beyond my really small joint order with Cavo.
This tea is pretty tasty. I dunno if it’s rock your socks off sort of tea for me, but i’d pick it up again and rotate it in through my cupboard. It’s a chocolatey, malty, vanilla like tea…though there’s a note in there that makes me think of oolongs that made me less enthusiastic about the blend. I think it might? be the vanilla, though i can’t say for certain. On the whole though, a really nice cup of tea that started this insane day for me and set me on the right foot. Thanks Cavocorax!
Note to self. Read previous tasting notes if you haven’t had this in a while. Looks like i loved this in latte form, so maybe i’ll do that tomorrow. TOday though, as a tea this was pretty perfect. Just the right balance of coffee like chocolate, creamy tea. Overall, i’m glad i cracked in to this one early… esp since there are so many orders incoming lol
Final Count: 138 no change. Must get at least 3 in tomorrow to make up for it…ignoring of course the fact that 11-15 new teas will be added to my cupboard tomorrow. bah!
tea from this morning! Sadly i was in back to back meetings all day and so 14 hours ago seems like a really long time from now. I opted for this one because i’m trying to get into all the devotea teas that terri sent me before she gets another box out my way haha. Add to that the incoming orders and i’m a little crazy! On the upside, my butiki order gets here tomorrow, we’re going to see the Lion King on friday (it’ll be my 5th? time) and saturday i’m going out with my friend and her little one for wedding dress shopping.
right..back to the tea. lol this was a bold tasty cup of KERPOW to wake me up this morning but that’s about all that i remember. better tasting notes to come i’m sure, since i have a bit more of this one to play with :)
