4923 Tasting Notes
thanks for sharing jump62359 i think this tea is just not amazing enough after the honeydew tea of happy places that i had. so it fell short. should have had them in a different order hahaha on that note i should hold off on rating it since all i could think about was the other tea. oopsy. i’ll know for next time hahaha
Final count: 161 gah. All swaps are in. No way I’m hitting 130 by thrs. Lol
ZOMG YES PLEASE! Seriously. someone go buy me 3 tins of this please. thanks.
This one was sent to me by the lovely jump62359 and i have been smelling it in my house since i opened the package yesterday. I have eked out every last bit of delicious steepings of this one because it’s good. like really good. like oh hey there melon…get in my mouth. woah, guess that could be taken the wrong way snicker but really? as a caffeine free option that tastes like DELICIOUS…i am all in…totally on board. need more. like yesterday.
I feel guilty. I have zero time to post real tasting notes…so i’m pulling a “Terri” since i haven’t been here in 2 days…that’s a lot. back to work from vacation working 5 ppl’s jobs = OH MY GOD CRAZY BUSY.
So i bought tea today. as a treat. to ME. even though that will blow my tea goals out of the water because OH MY GOD…i deserve it. so neener neener tea cupboard. HA!
Let’s recap for the past two days…
PTA – Butiki (thank you sh…keychange!)
Zheng Shan Xian Zhong – yezi tea
Premium Sun Moon lake – TTC
Puerh Gourmand – Damman Freres
Which brings me to today…which i won’t have time to log everything for but i’ll get a few in because NEW TEAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hello candied almond tea. CharlotteZero also sent this one my way – which is also why i paired it with the other MF tea i had this evening. My mousse au chocolat is still my favouite of the heritage teas but i have to say both of these rooibos blends are pretty tasty. This one is a more delicate almond tea – not knocking me in the face like so many others. It’s also not that sweet, over whelming sort of almond. This is a gentle almond and quite nice! thanks charlotteZero!
Final Count: 150 (137 to 157 and back down again….one swap incoming and not even going to try to get to my 130 goal for this month…but maybe 140 is doable to have my ins and outs be the same for the month heh)
thank you charlotteZero for sending this one my way. I haven’t had an opportunity to try out many rooibos blends from MF, so this one was on my list – especially given that it’s an apple sort of tea. I will have to try steeping this a little longer next time to coax out more of the buttery apple flavour, but this one was a win in my books tonight. I have really been loving this cup while watching a bit of tv and trying figure out how to sleep and get up tomorrow. haha
Another one i forgot to review and log before vacation and now it’s a sipdown! this is another tea from missB and while i like it on the whole, better than the chocolate truffle, i want this to be just a bit more lemony and a lot more tarty. This is more of a lemon black to me as it seems to be missing that je ne sais quois that would = tartilicious! that being said, it’s still a tasty cup and i’m happy to have tried it! Thanks MissB!
Apparently i forgot to log a few teas before i left for vacation. I had this then, and now that i’m back it’s a sipdown. For the most part this is an average sort of chocolate tea. I don’t get the rich decadent chocolate that i expect when something is a truffle. It’s not a bad cup of tea but i want MOAR decadence….not this wimpy chocolate :) Thanks for sharing missb!
always on the search for more ginger teas – especially non caffinated ones, i picked this up while at bayswater. I was originally going to get the ginger pineapple, but when i smelled this one, i knew it was the way to go. This is like lime gelato from david’s tea but less sugar and more spicy kick! Again, i could handle more ginger but on the whole, this is a really tasty one. it’s got just enough ginger to satisfy me and accompanies the lime really nicely. So glad i opted for this one over the pineapple since i think that wouldn’t have been as nice.
I picked this up on my travels this past week and since courtney was stepping in to bayswater she had me go try this and report back to her lol. Not that she likely wouldn’t have bought it anyway after smelling it because this one smells DEEELICIOUS! but i was happy to report back that this one is quite tasty! There is cinnamon in this, and what appears to be popcorn. That being said, this is clearly a maple tea. But it’s maple+ lol Not sure how else to describe it really. I’m not sure if i’d call this taffy but it’s maple yum. and that’s good enough for me today!
