4942 Tasting Notes
Apparently today is my day for looking at the teas that keychange sent my way :) I pulled this one out again tonight to enjoy while watching a movie with the other half. I think i was mostly interested in something that was more savoury that any of my fruitier herbals teas. I’m super glad that keychange didn’t like this one haha because it means that it got to come live with me. I don’t often look at placing orders with Harney because for some reason in my head, i want to buy tea from the actual shop. In part because canada shipping is stupid, but i have a tea mule, so i can always ignore that…i just haven’t been as driven to order from them. I want to smell the teas! or something. Either way, i’m happy this one came to live with me, tying me over for just a little longer before i feel compelled to order with harney…maybe it’ll give me time to plan a weekend get away to NY!
AAAALLLL DONE! I didn’t have much time to drink a lot of tea today but I am still trying for my 2 sipdowns a day just to keep rolling on getting my cupboard to where i want it to be for July 1 (100 teas, the oldest being purchased in Jan 2014, ignoring puerhs). I guess technically that means i shouldn’t have been drinking this one, but a girl’s gotta drink, what a girl wants to drink :) I will likely stock this in my cupboard on a rotational basis since i really like the vanilla flavouring in this genmaicha. It’s a nice contrast to the LB chocolate genmaicha that i also really enjoy. Overall i really love this tea and i’m glad Nina’s dropped by and introduced themselves on steepster! :)
keychange sent this one to me a while back and i haven’t had a chance to sit and drink it yet lol I picked it for today’s morning tea because, well my “morning” was this afternoon so i needed something black but i wanted to try something new. This fit the bill perfectly. I was hoping for a little more smokey flavour from this but it was a nice robuts, cup of tea. I might be willing to drink this now and then when i order from Harney here and there. Overall, happy with this one! thanks for sharing keychange! i haven’t forgotten about the other teas you sent either! haha
the only other tea i brought with me tonight…and for some reason, it’s slightly sweet…almost like licorice root sweet..and it’s making me not happy….and grumpier than i already am. BAH!
Final Count: 141 (at least let’s just call this tasting note the cut off time…the night/day it’s all blending in to one blur…)
brought this one in with me today to testing overnight. It’s only midnight and i’m ready to pass out. 6-8 more hours to go…..oh goodie. Only good side is that i can take a cab home….but then of course i have to ethier have a really little nap..or try to just stay awake until the evening so that i’m not up all night tomorrow because i slept all day. good times. mostly this was just a tasty happy moment in my evening…. which is still sooo much more to go
Almost done my batch of this from December, though i’ve got more from January and another batch coming from the spring lol. This will likely not be a sipdown in the near future as a result. This was the last tea i managed before leaving the house, and i’m pretty sure it won’t be enough to keep me going. lol
I drank this and something else before leaving the house….but i ..wait nm now i remember what it was lol. Testing is well underway so far but man, this is going to be a rough night. things are progressing slow, so there’s like 14-16 hours left of being in a cold-ish room, in the middle of nowhere, close to nothing else not much to drink/eat that is delicious. this tea gets more and more average the more i drink it. on the whole, i’m pretty much done with drinking it i think. just not a long term tea to have a around, but nice enough from time to time..
almost out of this one. While i’m trying to get a few sipdowns in, i also have a lot of teas that are 3-4 cups away from a sipdown so i need time to actually drink and enjoy the teas a fefw more times before they can be sipdowns. Since i have a bunch of new stacy teas (squeeeee!) incoming, i’m trying to drink up a few of the others that i have in my cupboard, especially since they roll in to my 6 month goal for july haha. This isn’t my favourite, but it’s not bad. I think i prefer the pumpkin creme brulee over this one, but it’s still tasty!
Another tea from this morning…bought myself a little time before having to head in for work, so i’m enjoying the ability to have a few more cups of good tea before i’m stuck with just my travel mugs and anything i can make between testing. :) i quite enjoy this one, though it’s not as delicious as my mousse au chocolat. but where that one is a blissfully delicious dark chocolate, this one is closer to a milk chocolate for me. :)
