7959 Tasting Notes
picked this one up at the tea festival and figured it was worth having tonight. I made a huge valentine’s day dinner that was a whole lot more than i bargained for haha. Thankfully it was delicious and my other half loved it.
this tea is smooth…sort of creamy, lemony,a little orangey. I wouldn’t neccesarilly call it froot loops since those things are stupidly sugarey, but this is a nice brew.
Another sample from evol ving ness this one smells pretty good, but brewed it has a weird taste until you add a tiny bit of sweetner. Then i can totally see “blood orange” as a flavour here. I’d be curious to see how this tastes cold brewed since it might be a decent summer drink for something a little sour but not hibby sour (not that i mind hibby!)
NOM! This is another sample from Evol Ving Ness Decided i should have a few herbals tonight so that i get some sleep since we need to get up early tomorrow to visit PUPPIES!
My valentine’s day has consisted of cleaning up around the house and letting my husband go on TWO bike rides today while i stay home to cook him a delicious meal. haha this tea is lovely. coconut and pineapple…sweet but not cloying. I am a big fan of this one. I suspect it would be pretty damn good as a col brew as well! thanks a bunch evol!
sample from evol ving ness thanks for letting me revisit this one. I think i liked it a little better today – something about the coconut today just hit the spot. it’s still not a tea that i need to keep in my cupboard, as i’m always afraid of the coconut going rancid while it’s in the cupboard. But this is a nice one to have from time to time.
mmmm yes i’m pulling out a number of my AQ2T teas today because i waited for them forever AND i want a few NON samples before i continue on my sipdown journey this weekend. this one again smells divine in dry leaf! chocolate, orange deliciousness. Brewed, this hold true. The orange is strongest in this one, with the chocolate in the tail end of it. it works for me. I’m a fan of this one :)
Another tea from AQ2T. I didn’t have high hopes for this one as it feels like pear is a hard flavour to master out there in tea world. However, i like trying new things, and if this tea worked, it would like be a favourite as yes to vanilla, pear and cardamom. :) The dry smell of this one is very much pear and vanilla. Even though Lauren’s pictures are accurate on her storefront, i wass still a little surprised to see the giant chunks of cardamom butter. heh they are big!
Brewed, this is a subtle tea. I’m hoping that as it cools more of the pear flavour will come out, as hot, it’s more black tea with hints of flavour than anything. I get almost memories of vanilla and pear, versus truly drinking a pear/vanilla/cardamom tea. Thankfully the base tea is delicious so no complaints there, just not the tea i was looking for. I may try a cooler brew next time with a longer steep today was 200 @ 3 mins.
