4040 Tasting Notes
I’m so cold this morning. I’m almost considering braving outside to go to the office where i’d at least be warmer while i was there. Not that it’ll happen. Picked this one early this morning to try a few more of the teas that Dexter sent me. I have a whole bunch of samples from her, teafairy and missB that i need to get through so that my cupboard gets back to normal heh. I didn’t mind this one as much as others did. It had that creamy bailey’s feel to it, along with mint that wasn’t in your face sort of mint. I’ve got another little bit of this to try again and see if i stil feel that way on my second cup :)
when theteafairy gives you directions, you listen. Must.Not.Brew.Hot. So i cold brewed this because after all, I wouldn’t want to risk the tea tasting like feet (there’s a story there for another time) :) I’ve never had tea from this company so it was nice to receive this in my swap with the teafairy. This is a very lightly flavoured tea that really does have a natural lime taste. I’m going to have to play with this a little more but it’s tasty! especially with just a pinch of sweetner added to it! thank you teafairy!
My other morning tea, thankful that i brought two with me today since i haven’t had 5 mins to get food or anything. What a day! first day back with all the people who have been off for a week or two. I am really loving this today. It seems so much roastier and chocolatey. I may have to think about restocking this once i’m finished with my stash :)
this was my tea this morning to deal with the slushy, frozen mess out there. I only have maybe 5 more days worth of this tea left so i’m trying to savour them while also being excited for an excuse to place another order during the next sale haha. Added a bit of maple to this one just for fun and had a great morning tea :)
sipdown! (189) thanks for sending this my way Missb especially since it likely would have been one i picked out for my first order with this company (which will happen someday but later rather than sooner since my cupboard just went up!) I have to agree with missb that this is pretty close to mango “real” flavour. What i didn’t count on, was the smell. There’s something slightly cloying in the smell that is not sitting well with me. I an enjoying the tea for what it is but i’m not sure the smell wouldn’t get to me after a while. Not sure if i’ll order this myself but i’m glad i tried it. It’s a tea i could have in my cupboard now and again i think – one of the rotating teas :)
sipdown! (190) Another one from Dexter who very nicely surprised me with samples of all 12 of the herbal infusions teas as i missed being able to grab them thanks to a very long day of work.
I couldn’t tell you what’s in this blend. I drank it unthinkingly while browsing adagio fan blends (curse you cavo!). What that does tell me is that i enjoyed it quite a bit! it wasn’t overly sweet, wasn’t a hibiscusy blend..though the smell started to get to me after a while. I’d actually like to try this one cold brewed sometime. thanks dexter!
Another one from dexter! :) I would have gotten through all 12 days today i think except for getting a late start on them heh. This one is quite tasty, though the licorice makes it a little sweet for my tastes. If i can find a way to dial it back a bit, i think it will be even tastier. Maybe i can add my 52 shamrock tea to it heh. If you don’t like licorice, stay away from this one. There’s a creamy, lemon, mint licorice flavour going on here. I’m not sure i’d call it candycane..but it’s not too shabby :)
Another one from dexter! I’m trying to switch over to some of my caffeine free teas on the off chance it decides to bug me tonight. I’ve got a meeting in the morning with a vendor so i need to be on my game!
This one reminds me a lot of the pumpkin rooibos from tealux i think it was. Sadly that also means that it reminds me of melon. For whatever reason it’s like honey dew/cantaloupe sort of melon. Enjoyable but man i miss the pumpkin tea terri sent me haha
