3045 Tasting Notes
stupid steepster ate my note again…i should know better. bah! bah! wasn’t impressed with this one.
blech. no thanks.
tea from this morning. it’s almost gone and that makes me a sad, sad panda since this is one of the few recent blends from Frank that i’ve really enjoyed!
Split order with Kittenna This one is pretty decent for a green tea. I weirdly think i’d like this steeped in milk though,so i’ll have to try this. Steepster is frustrating me tonight so bad tasting notes.
I had this first thing this morning steeped in milk as a substitute latte since i was pretty sure i prefer this to starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte, which i really enjoy…and i was right! too bad this is nearly gone :(
meh. swap from fiddling overall nit a fan of this chai. I prefer others as there’s something about the blending of this one that doesn’t appeal to me.
Had this one in the morning, still really enjoying it! Should have been drinking this one sooner! :)
..and final tea of the evening since i figured i should have some caffeine free options! There are none in the travelling tea box A, so i’m sneaking some from my cupboard that are getting close to sipdown status so that i can push them closer to the edge.
..and um now i have see a woman about an elephant on her tea…
sipdown! which leaves me still at 224 because i snuck a tea to keep out of the travelling tea box A. ;) I figured that while i’m doing a good job of not increasing my cupboard tonight with the teabox, i should still try to get a sipdown in since i did not have any 52 teas from my cupboard tonight. I’ll try to do better tomorrow with my 52 teas sipdown – have a few earmarked to try/drink. I figure maybe there’s hope of getting to 210 by the weekend…maybe. heh
I still enjoy this one, though with orange cream from della terra, i don’t need to keep this one in my cupboard, even if it is easier to access. I prefer the Della Terra blend and they’re usually having a sale haha! Thanks to kittenna and cavocorax for letting me try this one out though!
travelling tea box A!
and in other news – this is the 975th different tea that i’ve had (to pull a shmiracles), if steepster is to be believed.
**also in other news i totally lost my train of thought because someone’s facebook status made me laugh a lot. You know how there are words out there that people clearly don’t know what they are…how to spell them etc.. and you kind of shake your head and go with it? Well i never though i’d see the day that obstacles (a fairly “easy” word) was spelled wrong. Oppsticals. And yes..sometimes people have learning disorders and crap..not mocking the world but this was clearly from one of my friends who doesn’t know the word is obstacles, rather than her being unable to spell it properly. like my friend who thought it was “for all intensive purposes” instead of “intents and purposes” that sort of thing.
….holy tangent batman. So anyway…this tea? reminds me of i think? it’s palais de the’s toffee tea. I think? there’s something i’ve had that reminds me of this. The tea is not really buttered rum, and it’s a bit on the astringent side. it might fare better with a little cream or something but i prefer teas that i can drink straight.
