2895 Tasting Notes
Welcome to Sipdown Central
This was a sample sent from Nina’s.
I used to drink alot of Moroccan Mint over ice, especially during gigs. It’s very refreshing!
Today I chose to drink this hot. I had the first cup plain, then I tosses a few fragrant Rose Buds (Frontier) into the pot, ala My Friend Rashad’s comments, & that was tasty too. It very much reminded me of an herbal tea from back in my Hippy Days, “Nuclear Casual Tea”.
I’m not always a fan of mint in my tea, although I enjoy it in my salads.
Thanks to Laurent for this sample.
This is a Sipdown, bringing me back down to 300 teas!
Leif & I combined the last of Sakura Allure (Teavana), Apricot Green (Adagio), & Peach Zinger (Teaves) into an iced blend.
The resulting tea is tart & tangy, & in all honesty, a little acidic for me, but Leif likes it. Thanks again Michelle.
I’m now at 301 teas, BTW.
What to sipdown next?
I’m enjoying a bit of a day off, for the most part. Originally I was suppose to have students at 9:30 & noon, & meet someone at 2:00. So far the 9:30 & 2:00 have cancelled. Hopefully the noon will show up! People tend to forget things around holidaze, so we’ll see.
Months ago I did a nice little trade with Michelle, & today I’m working on sipping down some of those teas. This one is not a sipdown, as I have enough to drink it probably one more time.
This is a gentle cup of milky rice pudding, probably made with jasmine rice, as it has a hint of floral to it. The floral is not jasmine, but that’s ok, don’t ruin my fantasy. :)
Sil Sample Sipdown
I’ve been hanging on to the last bit of this for awhile, & today was the day. This is my after breakfast tea, kind of a morning dessert, if you will, & I’m enjoying it, to be sure.
The dry leaf is lovely, with little flowers & kind of a purple-red cast to the leaf. Steeped, it is a nice fruity tasting blend. I’ve never drank Merlot, so I have no idea what it tastes like, but this makes for a tasty cup.
This is the first tea I’ve tried from Vintage TeaWorks, & if it is representative of their other teas, I hope to give them a try someday too. Thanks Sil :)
