7609 tasting notes

sweet mother loving crap this one was delicious. Those of you who have been around a while, know that i adore mousse au chocolat from mf. this is as brilliant as that tea, while being a very different tea. black tea base? check. chestnut? check. rich chocolate? check. seriously. I wish i’d picked up a tin of this one.

Nicole

Sounds good!

OMGsrsly

Uh oh. I might be becoming very very tempted.

Sil

Poke me before you do omg. I may be ordering a tin of this one but I want to try a few more of the teas I picked up first. Free shipping to Sharon over 50$

OMGsrsly

I think I need to commit to more of the teas I currently have though. :/ They stress me out. But they’ve been narrowed down to the very delicious. Mostly.

this one is back in my cupboard after getting to try a sample of this a while back. chili, black tea and chocolate? YES. I love this blend and i’m happy to have more in my cupboard.

Another tea from this weekend – all i can recall is holy THYME! I need to have another cup of this before sending the rest to omgsrsly but this one is my least favourite so far as it’s more thyme, then juniper then black tea base. the balance seems off a little in this one.

OMGsrsly

Aww, that’s a little disappointing. But I do love Fauchon’s Peche et Thym. So.

Finally placed my August Uncommon order; and your tasting notes are getting me excited!

Sil

Oh yay! Looking forward to seeing what you think

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas
7609 tasting notes

i keep feeling like all the entries for the NEW 52 teas should be under something like that. I guess my thought is, that it’s hard to weed out the ratings for the old stuff versus the new stuff. Luckily though, this is still pretty tasty to me. It’s for sure more caramel black than pumpking cheesecake…but it was still an enjoyable cup. that being said, this was another tea from the weekend so better to wait for another review haha

goodbye delicious tea. Hopefully another lot of this same tea will knock my socks off like this one did. so amazeballs.

Final Count for October: 105 which is far from my goal of 60 but is damn good considering i was at 176 at the end of September. So there.

drank Ginger Beer by DAVIDsTEA

I have a bunch of tasting notes to catch up, but just a couple for right now as i catch up on spending for october, cleaning up my cupboard and getting ready for the new month lol. I finished this one off this weekend – my other half played hooky from work and we went up to our friends cottage…it’s 3 hours north of toronto..and when i say cottage, i use that term loosely. 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, giant kitchen, floor to ceiling glass windows….loft room, fireplace…outside sauna and hot tub…built in barbeque outside with a bar and stools…giant picnic table on the balcony – fire pit on the grass befoe the dock. so much amazing. just the two of us all weekend, doing nothing but enjoying the fire, cooking, eating, playing boardgames and watching the outside go by. saunas and hot tub drinking and relaxing…2 glorious days of wonderful. this tea was part of that weekend and will be my free tea for last quarter, IF none of the winter teas float my boat. :)

Fjellrev

OMG that must be one damn epic cottage. Glad you were able to relax!

keychange

Wow, that cottage sounds like a slice of heaven!

OMGsrsly

Sounds dreamy. :)

Kristal

Sounds like a lovely weekend with lovely tea!

Alyssa

Sounds like more of a chalet than a cottage. Lucky you! What a nice weekend.

Sil

haha yeah @ alyssa… i laughed when my other half called it a cottage. me: this is nicer than every house i’ve lived in. ever.

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.
