7755 Tasting Notes

Dropped the temp on this one and increased the steeping time a little as per Dexter’s recommendation. This improves this one, not that it was a bad tea, but with a little change to the steeping, it’s a little different and more to my liking. thanks for this dexter!

drank L'Automne by Fauchon

Another one that i haven’t pulled out in a long time. Need to get cracking on some of my teas that I have larger quantities of. This is one that i’ve been holding on to because i love it so much.

drank Melange du Cap by Le Palais des Thes
7755 tasting notes

forgot that i really like this one. Cacao and vanilla…so nommy in a herbal and very little rooibos taste, and certainly none of that woodsy stuff. I need to pull this out more often especially in winter because of that creamy taste.

drank Mojito Marmalade by Tea Forte
7755 tasting notes

i think i’ve finally come to the conclusion that i really only seem to like mojitos in alcohol form, while on vacation. lol any other time of year or form, they just aren’t my thing. Maybe it’s because the mint to “whatever other flavour” just never seems as balanced as in a real drink. at least now i know. no more mojito teas.

Nicole

Yeah, I generally like alcohol better than alcohol flavored things. :)

Sil

hahahahaha

mrmopar

I agree with Nicole..

OMGsrsly

I’m scared of the mint in this one. The tea is sitting on the counter, taunting me.

Sil

there’s a lot of mint

Fjellrev

Ha! I never had the actual drink before, but I did recently finish a mojito-flavoured lip balm and really enjoyed it.

drank Apricot Amaretto by Tea Forte
7755 tasting notes

another from omgsrsly. this one’s not bad but it’s not knock your socks off, which is i think where i landed the last time i tried a few of these tea forte things. It’s amaretto and there’s a slight apricot note in here which makes it more enjoyable for me, but not enough to want to have this around all the time. A nice tea to try and then move on:)

the rest of this is off to omgsrsly because she asked for it bwahahahaha. in more ways than one ;) i added some cream and maple syrup to this cup and it made it a more palatable cup of tea but still just a smokey tea. The chestnuts aren’t anywhere to be found and i did pull in a well balanced teaspoon of things. oh well. a decent cup, just not what i wanted it to be.

OMGsrsly

Uhh, thanks? I think? Here’s hoping it’s not loads, or else Bear With Me and CrowKettle will get to share in the love as well. :D

Sil

naw was a small sample pack

OMGsrsly

:) Phew.

drank Kiwi Lime Ginger by Tea Forte
7755 tasting notes

this one smells like ass. Honestly. Dry it was sort of ginger, lime…not so much kiwi….steeped, i was getting this weird tangy smell with an underlying ginger taste..sort of. Not a fan of this one. I tried to drink it but ended up having to not finish the cup because it was just wrong. :) sorry omgsrsly! haha

__Morgana__

Smells like ass. LOL. If the asses around me smelled like ginger and lime that would be an improvement. ;-)

Sil

hahahahahaha

OMGsrsly

LOL. Oh well.

Fjellrev

Haha oh god.

BAD dexter. Ok good, wonderful, awesome, amazing dexter really, but crap. Now i understand the love. She sent me a sample of this one, and i’ve been saving it for a day when i really wanted a delicious tea that i was 90% sure wouldn’t let me down. So today…i pulled this one out. the dry leaf smells wonderful and let me tell you, drinking this one. YUM! I know it’s an oolong, but it’s totally worth it. Cherry, Chocolate, coffee latte like delicious drink of yum. Of course now i want to place an order. bah! thanks dex!! hahaha i think.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
