956 Tasting Notes
My evening cuppa listening to my Girl Scout Troop plan for a campout we are having this weekend. I am wondering if the 6-10 inches of snow in our forecast will slow us down any…. I did pack my tea for the weekend first!
Lightly sweet and I can definitely taste the apricot. Lovely and relaxing with a little sweetener. (I am seeing a pattern here….tea greatly adds to my relaxation. Awesome!)
Good Morning to my new breakfast blend! I wish I could concentrate on just you in the mornings, but my breakup with last breakfast tea was messy. I was ready, but my past love was not. I still have some things from the past relationship unfinished, which I will need time to work through. Please be patient.
Love this one. The smokiness is light, but definitely still gets me going in the morning. And I can even see a few afternoon pick me ups with Mincing Lane in my future.
I purchased this one without sampling…..I know, so weird for me. I am definitely happy with the tea. The chocolate and bergamot flavors are subtle, and I loved the touch of lemongrass. I also liked that the brew is light, rather than heavily flavored or scented. Yum!
I think there are two versions of this tea on Steepster. This is actually my second tasting note on this tea. I really like this one regarless of the fact that it is probably the most inexpensive loose tea I own. The really cool part, it is toward the top of my list! A tea bargain that makes me very happy!
My morning tea of the day. Good solid tea that is slightly sweet. Nice balance with the grenadine and vanilla with the black tea, but be careful not to oversteep. The back story on how this blend kept the monks awake for long periods of meditation……I am hoping for a little of that kind of energy today. Yes, I am going to be the optimist today and accomplish much.
This one is pretty good in the evening, but it always makes me wonder why it is hard to find a good decaf chocolate tea…. I have no problems finding good fruit flavors, and a great vanilla. Why is decaf chocolate so hard?
For this one I have to slightly heap the spoon, and I take it with milk and sweetener. I only wish the chocolate was more intense. Maybe I will have to toss in some mini chips, or some cocoa powder next time……
Second steep, I added a little more tea and a few shakes of Dutch process cocoa powder. Yum. More chocolately goodness!
I did another side by side sampling of lychee tea kind of like I did with the rose teas. I thought this one was a little light on flavor, but then I was tasting it along side the Lichee Congou “Extreme” from another merchant. I definitely need to try this one on its own before passing judgement. All in all it seemed pleasant. Looking forward to it iced in the warmer weather, which will probably be June around here…..
