3070 Tasting Notes
I’ve drank several teas today, but didn’t really get around to posting about them.
This is my last tea of the day,
It’s another one from Sil, sent to her from Schmiracles.
This is a black tea with peach flavor, & it’s not bad if you add a bit of sweetening, though it does get bitter as it cools.
Another sipdown from Sil, which came through her from Schmiracles.
The dry leaf smells like an amazing pipe tobacco. Not that I’m a fan of pipe tobaccos, but that’s what it immediately brought to mind for me.
Which was very unexpected.
With a name like ‘Forest Draught’, I was thinking this would have a base of Puerh, but that is not the case. This is blackberries, vanilla, & a tobacco-like taste. There is an underlying bitterness, & I want to sweeten it, but I realized a little while ago that I’m not really tasting sweet very well today, the entire center of my tongue is engulfed in a tart taste, that I can’t seem to shake. I brushed my teeth, scraped my tongue, sucked on an ice cube, ate some pears, rinsed with baking soda…everything tastes tart. Go figure…
So don’t take any of my reviews seriously today!
Another Sipdown from my *Sil*box, which was sent to her by Cavo, I think.
I really enjoyed Tiger Eye, when I had some in my cupboard, but I don’t feel like there is a highest enough percentage of it in this cup. Honestly, I don’t really get this combination of teas, but then again, many of the Adagio fandom combo’s don’t make sense to me.
It’s not horrible tasting, but not really tasty either.
Darkworld…is it some kind of Legends of Zelda thing? I should have gave this to my 21 year old son Leif, he’s a long time Zelda fan.
I think I’m getting old…
Another tea from the BBBB, uh…from Sil? Or TB?
Oh well…either way, it’s an Assam, & I have to confess, after eating breakfast I ate a piece of crystalized ginger, thinking it would make a good palate cleanser. Actually, it didn’t.
I’m not really tasting the tea much, other than the bold tart shiny quality, typical of Assams.
My first cup of the day, one of Sil’s offerings from the most recent round of the BBBB.
I already finished off the cup, while I was reading other people’s reviews, so although I enjoyed this, I don’t really have much to say regarding it’s taste profile, other than I recall a milk chocolate essence in there, and now that the cup is gone, I have a lemony tart lingering mouth, although I don’t recall the tea itself being tart like that, Lol.
2nd cup – light chocolate, wood, a little floral, & coffee. And the lemony after taste.
