705 Tasting Notes
This is freaking delicious! I’ve been meaning to try this one, and recently received a sample from my mom. It smells like peach and milky oolong, but the taste is like straight peach juice from a can of peaches. I like how thirst quenching it is too! Mmmm! Like most oolongs, it resteeps nicely. Next time I’m in Lupicia, I’ll be sure to get some!
This is definitely one of Frank’s better blends. He seems to be kind of pro at breakfast/baked good black tea blends. :) I really am enjoying this tea. It definitely tastes like banana bread. I think as far as banana bread flavored teas, this one ranks higher than DavidsTea’s version that I enjoyed last year, but not quite as high as Butiki’s Foxy Roxy’s Banana Walnut Treat. I think it’s because I like the banana flavor better in Butiki’s, but seeing that I don’t have any of that one, this one is hitting the spot! This bag probably won’t last long!! Yum!!
Since, I just ordered more tea ;) I’ve also been trying to drink down more of my older teas. I just had a big cup of this one, and I still enjoy it! The key is overleafing, because the raspberry leaves are voluminous, which means you might not get enough black tea in there. I still have at least one more big cup of this one left, but it’s getting there!
I just got hot buttered banana bread tea from 52teas in the mail this morning! It was early too, because it was supposed to come on Tuesday! Nice to be able to enjoy it over the holiday weekend! Maybe I’ll make some NOW! :D
My second Monday evening watching Downton Abbey, while enjoying a cozy flavored rooibos. This episode was pretty jarring. I’m all worked up now, but at least there’s still time to wind down before bed, unlike when I watched the final episode of last season. :P I think I have a love/hate relationship with this show! Maybe I need another cup of rooibos…
In other news, my husband got me some flowers, just because. I love when he does that!
This was pretty tasty, especially for a decaf black tea. I found the flavor blended well with the black tea, and it was pretty smooth. Sometimes decaf black teas taste funny, but this tasted just like it wasn’t decaf at all. I’m not the type that reaches for peachy teas much, but if I was, this would definitely hit the spot!
Decided I haven’t had this in awhile, so I made a big cup. I think it’s getting old…probably bought this tin a year ago, and I think the nuts are going stale. That’ll teach me to not use up tea faster! It’s still a great nutty tea, but for some reason, there was sediment at the bottom of my cup, which I got a nasty mouthful of at the end. :P Now I wish I had a fresher batch, but alas, too much tea to justify purchasing more!
I also picked up a half ounce of this tea. I heard so many mixed reviews that I was afraid to try it, but try it I did, and it’s pretty darn good! I like it way more than Della Terra’s version, (sorry!) It just tastes more caramel-like to me. As a fan of dessert black teas, I will definitely keep this in mind for a future purchase. :)
