5059 Tasting Notes
sipdown! I finished up the last of this today, as i’m still trying my best to get things drunk up before my second cupboard explosion of the year happens. I’ve got plenty of things that are a cup or two away from being finished so i just need to take the time to drink them! :) I still really enjoy this offering from TTC – juicy and fresh and sweet and just a good time in my cup!
this was my morning’s “flavoured” tea..though admittedly i DID add a bit of zhu rong to this particular cup, as i find the licorice root at the end of the bag is just too cloyingly sweet if i don’t add a little more something to the blend. This one is nearly done and while satisfying, it wasn’t nearly as amazing as the very first time i had this thanks to my tea sister terri.
(also, be prepared for this sort of thing sprinkled in all my notes for a while..I AM MOVING! SO…. anyone who has swapped with me in the past, i will have a new address soonish so don’t send me anything lol We’ll forward mail but i don’t want to risk anything getting returned!)
…feeling guilty for not working on sipdown tonight, i went with at least one of the teas that i want to work on getting through by July 1st. I’m still hoping that i can work through that part of my goal, even if i’m not likely to meet my cupboard size goal with all the swaps and purchases coming in the next little while. I still really like this one, especially as it’s a decent rooibos option for when i want something a little less black :)
Final Count: 129 (though there are like 6 swaps inbound, the BBB and 4 orders lol)
mmmmm another tea from our shared order that i had apres our bike ride. This is a deliciously wonderful lemon tea. Seriously..it’s fantastic. What i’m missing though? Are the actual pastry notes. It might be because i didn’t have a lot of almond slivers in this cup, so i’ll see how the next cup fares. That being said.. yes please. i love this one!
missB sent this one my way and i decided to try it out earlier today. We biked 45KM today and stupid me forgot to put sunscreen on, so my arms are a little burned. It means i haven’t really been in the mood for tea since we got back, but since i have work to do tonight before bed, i wanted to get a few more cups in before i have ice cream and liquor lol
This is a decent enough chai…still not going to beat out my favourite but the notes in this one are closer to what i tend to like in a chai. Thanks so much for sharing missb!
another great cup of tea this morning while i clean up the kitchen, do a little work and get it ready for my other half to then wake up and cook me breakfast! lol this is pretty much par for course when we have a day off together on the weekend as i’m a morning person and he’s a night owl. So i get up, prepare the kitchen, make coffee and bring it to him in bed…then he gets up and makes my delicious breakfast to go with said coffee :) it’s perfect. Today we’ll be doing that and then i suspect it’ll be an extended bike ride down to high park to check out the cherry blossoms for fun :)
