5605 Tasting Notes
sipdown! I am falling behind, BUT i managed to travel for work and NOT buy more tea even though i did find some lol. I had the last of this today in an effort to have a cup that could kick me into action. it didn’t work all that well. I did really enjoy this in the morning though, as it was a little cooler than normal :)
I’m gone until tues night on business so i’m trying to get in a few cups of tea this morning before i need to head to the airport. I’m going to be behind in my sipdowns as a result so i need to get at least a couple in! Technically i only need to get to 90 this month, but i’m pushing hard for 85 heh given september’s insanity. Plus i have a sneaking suspicion that terri is going to be exploding things for me in short order :)
While i enjoyed this one, today it fell a little flat. I think that maybe i need to really be paying attention when i do a session with this tea. Thankfully, it was still a delicious cup and got me through the early morning hours.
Another selection from the BBB Box from tastybrew! This is an interesting tea – the leaves are all over the place and dry, they small slightly sweet. brewed, this makes for a cup of tea that reminds me more of a juicy green, sweet tea than a black tea. It was an intersting cup for the morning. Glad i have more to play with and enjoy! :)
I needed a cup of delicious tea after the last cup. So even though it’s late and i’m falling asleep in my chair, i’m having a cup of this. A great contrast to the sweet licorice taste in my mouth. blech. I like this tea a lot…too bad i didn’t think to make it a latte tonight heh.
Final Count: 106 (21 left to go in 7 days – 2 of which i’m not really here)
…and another one bites the dust. I think i’m finally calling it quits permanently on the verdant blends club. I resubscribed at the promise of vanilla and the box has disappointed. I still have 2 to try, but neither one is peaking my interest and this one is awful. While i don’t mind licorice – there is too much of that in here and it makes for a sickeningly sweet lemon like brew that has a terrible after taste. I tried really hard to drink this but i just can’t.
I’m tired of this tea. So it’s going in to my swap box.
It’s not that it’s a bad tea, but i never find myself wanting to drink it, and it’s got too much of that woodsy sort of rooibos taste to it that i don’t like. If this had just a little more strawberry flavour it would be perfect. Without it though, it’s not for me.
