3069 Tasting Notes
I could have sworn i’ve had this one before but steepster tells me otherwise. Either way i enjoyed this quite a bit this morning, which was slightly unexpected given my disappointments as of late with the tea emporium. That being said, it was with their flavoured teas so maybe i’m better off sticking to their unflavoured blacks. I’m not sure if i sent this to my tea sister but i think this might be one that both terri and nicole might enjoy. It’s malty, though not overly so and sort of a mid range black – not really a BOLD morning cup, but not yet the sort of cup i like in the afternoon either. Looking forward to having more of this since i should get around to drinking it up!
Had this in the morning today as a latte. Mostly just enjoying being able to get my daily milk in as I haven’t had time these days to make my smoothies.
SIPDOWN! (217) oh yeah… another 52 tea wrapped up for the year :) Not much else to say about this one that i haven’t already said. It’s tasty but no need for a repeat purchase for me :)
Drinking this one again tonight to try 1.5 tsp per 8oz. I think i prefer it this way when i want more “float” but i’d drink 1tsp per, when i want more root beer lol At least that’s how it seems to me tonight. Either way, i am still a fan of this one…really want to turn it in to a slushie now haha
have to make sure to get my 52 teas in every day so i picked this one out of my cupboard tonight as it’s one of the most full teas from frank that i have. I like this one but because of the intensity of the mint, it’s not a tea i can have all the time. I do like how the vanilla offsets the mint though. The only thing that might make this a tad more delicious is with a wee bit of chocolate. I may have to experiment with this one sometime :)
Pulled this one out of my cupboard this evening because Steep City is having a summer sale and I hadn’t tried this one in a while. I still really need to try this as a cold brew i think, but that hasn’t happened yet. This will never be a favourite of mine given the green base, but it’s a decent enough tea. I likely won’t order it again but this isn’t a chore to drink at all.
sipdown! thanks again nicole (aaaallmost done working through all your teas! lol) I was hoping that i would enjoy this one as much as the other straight black from Kusmi that nicole sent my way but sadly, it wasn’t meant to be. While this isn’t a bad assam, there are a number of others i would prefer to drink. This IS a much more enjoyable cup for me than their flavoured teas, so at least that is consistent! It’s not overly malty or bold…just a sort of average every day tea.
SIPDOWN! thank you nicole for sending this my way to try. I think i prefer the H&S version but this one is a close second. I like that it’s not astringent and yet still tasty! thank you!
thank you nicole for sending this one my way! I enjoyed this a lot this morning – it was just the thing to get me going after a rough night of the crazies waking me up several times. I have another cup that i’ll spend more time with tomorrow since i didn’t get a chance to really focus on it before i had drunk it all up!
