2951 Tasting Notes

From the HHTTB

Very lightly scented, not much flavor. I would probably get more strawberry flavor if I sweetened it, but I didn’t.

I’m not sure who put this in the box, but the box is WAY TOO BIG & FULL.
So thank you!
This tea is yet another example of the excellent quality of teas the TeaVivre produces, & although I don’t drink as much green teas as I used to, this is very nice. Its a delicate green & the jasmine is there, but very lightly. A very nice & refined cup!

This is actually very nice, especially with a pinch of stevia added. Tony adores plum oolong, & there are only a few cups left, so I’m keeping this one!

Not a bad little tea. Not overly mango flavored, but it is there.

From the HHTTB
I used to drink a lot of Moroccan Mint, which is a blend of gunpowder & mint (everybody here probably knows that, if not, then now you know!)
It was especially awesome over ice.
This one is a decent gunpowder. Maybe I should go pick some mint from the yard, brew up somemore & ice it down, & enjoy a refreshing bev!

I sipped this while teaching, & it wasn’t anything memorable to me.
Not bad, just not memorable.

I almost didn’t make a cup of this. Someone wrote on the label, “This tea does not steep well due to content of black pepper.”
Then I figured, what the heck? I’m making 4 oz cups of all these teas I’m sampling today so that I can get through a lot of teas without getting water logged, so I made a cup. I added stevia & coconut milk kefir (which is pretty nice for a creamer, it turns out!).
This is delicious, & part of me is thinking of keeping it.
But the black pepper sensation definitely does linger!
For quite some time!

i’m back over 200… lol

Terri HarpLady

LOL! Of course you are!
I’m perplexed: I keep trying to post a comment to my ice wine post, thanking people, etc. I’ve tried 4 times now, & it won’t post! But I can comment anywhere else with no problems. Wierd!

Sil

Yeah that sounds like the weird time I had….it was acting like I was signed out when I tried to post on lala’s note the other day and only hers…

Cavocorax

I had that problem too! It was a thread where you and a few others commented and I REALLY wanted to get in the conversation. :(

Sil

Boooo

Terri HarpLady

Well, at least now I know it’s not just me!!
Everything is loading slowly, & the tab up in the corner that normally say you, switches back to saying sign in or something like that. ALOT!

It’s been awhile since I had a cup of this, so I brewed one up to drink during my round trip to the bank. I used to drink a lot of stash teas, & they aren’t bad. This one needs some amendments to bring out the peachy flavor: stevia & the last of the coconut milk creamer that’s been in the fridge for awhile. A yes, kind of like peach icecream now.

Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box (HHTTB)
For those who don’t know, I’m a recovering addict. It’s been almost 30 years since I had a drink (actually my anniversary is coming up soon).
So I haven’t had a glass of wine in at least that long, & I’ve never had Ontario Ice Wine. In fact, I never even heard of it until I joined Steepster, LOL.

So this is actually pretty nice! Plain it was so so, with a little stevia (& I really mean just a pinch), it is a lovely fruity cup.

Lala

Happy anniversary!

Bonnie

You mean you’re older than 30 Terri?!

Sil

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
