5366 Tasting Notes
backlog from yesterday…my other half made me go to bed at a more reasonable time because i’ve been running myself ragged, so i didn’t get a chance to finish up yesterday OR order tea :(
i had this one yesterday + cacao and it was fantastic. the perfect afternoon tea after getting to go for SOUP DUMPLINGS! haha yes i’m a little obsessed.
Dear dexter all is forgiven…at least one of the peach teas you sent me is a hit…there may be others, but this one has reminded me of why i really liked peach to begin with. That’s not to say i want an abundance of peach teas, but i had this one cold brewing…came home, drank it up – it was like drinking liquid fuzzy peaches without the sugar. IE. it wasn’t too sweet – but it was just a DIFFERENT peach flavour than the usual. So after drinking all that, i made the last of it as a hot brew and it too was pretty tasty – though i prefer the cold one :) thanks for sending this one my way dexter!
Final Count: 128
thanks for this one omgsrsly I finished the last of this today while trying not to fell asleep at work in the afternoon lol. This one’s not too shabby. it’s got a bit of a bitter/bolder than i like it hit at the end of it, so i likely won’t restock unless i can share it with others! haha but i did enjoy this :)
cold brew of this one again tonight. Had a relaxing night…i’m not sure my body know what to do with itself when i’m not working 12+ hrs days. I made a commitment to myself this week to leave work by 5pm (which is still later/overtime for me when i get in at 7-7:30 but reasonable..) and to not get angry at things this week. Last week nearly killed me and i did not enjoy the person i was becoming on no sleep and too much work. So this week, i’m trying my best to stick to 8-9 hours days, i’m taking lunch, stepping away from my desk more than once and turning off work when i get home. If things fall on the floor, so be it. August and September and going to be bad enough so i need to take care of ME.
my other half has a rare weekend off next week as well, so we’re going to take the weekend to ourselves and not make plans with other ppl and just chill, and have some down time together. it’s going to be great!
oh and this tea? still enjoying it, still drinking it cold brew and um yeah..not lime-y enough but it’ll do!
Final Count: 130
dexter sent this one my way and i am a fan. I was thinking this would be very similar to the roasted nut tea i have from tea gscheweriweprwem….but it’s different. this one is a little sweeter but still that same weirdly pink brew. i am a fan of this! if i was in the mood for a nutty, sweet tea, i’d be sure to pick this one up again. thanks dexter!
yep…still prefer just plain ol’ cacao from HI…though HI’s customer service and communication with their customers is so awful, it’s hard to justify either. I’m actively looking for an alternative to their cacao as a result. this one is mint and chocolate but it’s watery and wimpy. so meh. even after a 15 min steep
