6059 Tasting Notes
lovely tea from raritea brewed up a cup tonight to try it out so i could pass the rest of the sample on to the next person. My only complaint about this one? not enough orange! haha this for me was largely a pistachio sort of rooibos blend. However, it was delicious, so i can’t fault it for that. I just can’t get enough of orange in my teas (though i don’t like blergamot! ‘cause that’s citruslike bleh) thanks for sharing Raritea!
Final Count: 84 (though that will be going up again tomorrow….)
no tasting notes yet and this one won’t be much better because i’m on proper tasting notes strike…or at least it feels that way haha. Trying to work through some of my newer teas to figure out if there’s anything i need to reorder early in the year before the dollar goes completely down the tubes. On the plus side, it’ll give me more incentive next year to try out a few more canadian companies that i’ve been meaning too (though it’s going to mean large orders because shipping is still the suck in canada).
i enjoyed this one :)
gah steepster ate my note. to recap:
this one was from dinosara and terri… i had it yesterday and it was really nice. This is not a strong puerh – it’s light and refreshing and reminded me of drinking spring water, except with taste that was sweet and earthy and just downright calming.
Final Count Yesterday: 75 (though that will be going up again with some teas that Kitenna dropped off once i get another few moments to enter them)
sipdown on this one from yesterday. I think when i get through my HI cacao, i’ll switch to tisano. HI is the serious suck when it comes to their teas/customer service etc so i refuse to continue to support them. Very similar to frank. I figure next year i’ll have even less spending power with the dollar so i’ll be focusing my efforts on companies that care about their customers and are doing things right. Soooo i shall see you again tea!
Another tea from yesterday…all i really recall about this one is that it’s quite tasty. This is a great little company that doesn’t have a huge number of selections but their customer service is good, their packaging is fun and the teas that they DO have are really enjoyable. They had samples for us about a year ago on steepster and i tried them then…it’s taken me a while to place an order and sadly the keemun they had is no longer a tea they carry. So i picked this one up as well just to try it since i’d been so pleased with their keemun. I’m not disappointed! best of all their “sample” sizes are very generous ranging from .5os to 1.5 haha
Final Count yesterday: 78 (forgot to log these ones in to my cupboard..this does not bode well for my end of year goal…)
