45 Tasting Notes
Had this last night, I was actually craving for something sweet and fruity. I made a cup of this, sliced some Gouda, grabbed some crackers. And Walla! Midnight snack! I was actually enjoying my snack while watching the past SNL with Drake, whom is one of my favorite artist:) the episode was actually good, though Drake was an actor before his fame, so that makes sense.
For the past couple of days the steepster website has been lagging! I keep getting the “Opps, Someone forgot to turn off the kettle” page. I have so much logging to do!!
I had this last night, I really Adore this tea, but Im finding that if I’m drinking it too much it doesn’t have that peppercorn mint hit that I love. I did have to bump the rating down because it’s not the same since the Holidays is over…lol
Mm I like this tea even more. I’m also craving for a slice of cake. It’s just so good, and sweet, vanilla-y.
I finally got a tracking number for my red leaf that I ordered on Sunday. Does it usually take that long to receive orders from them? I want to order more since I forgot to order the tins for the matcha but I also want to order Della Terra…oh man, the struggle.
Well Im home and now have to wait for the boyfriend to arrive home at 9ish to pick him up. I decided to make this tea! I actually never had Earl Grey tea before even though it’s one of those basic teas that people love to drink just like “Breakfast” (Ive never had that before either) I mean Im pretty sure you guys realize that I like flavored tea or unless its something Asian..hah (Stereotyping myself) The dry fragrance to this is divine, bergamot, and vanilla notes, it smells like work, Lush! I would take a bath with this fragrance! I steeped this for 4 minutes, and a teaspoon of german rock sugar. The taste is what I generally expected to taste like, its almost a little orange blossomy, with a vanilla base. I drank a bit to add room for warm milk, and since I haven’t got a new mug yet, I didnt know the ratio of how much milk to put in. though drinking it, seems nice. Honestly, I like it, its basic, its a staple and something I know I’ll crave for randomly.
For the many teas I have at home, I don’t have any teas at work in my office! Just this baby here. Though I’m craving for Gold Rush that I can not afford. Lol. Today’s a good day, relaxing and the “Shot Show” convention here in Vegas. I’m listening to Lana Del Rey, and my boyfriend finally comes home today from LA. Though I’m slightly irritated that he told me he was going to be home at 330 and now is telling me he is arriving at 830. I’m off at 7 therefore, I have to go do something for a hour and a half…
Anyways, i like this tea but today, that distinctive David’s black came out…oh well…
Idk if I said it already, but I ordered some Red Leaf tea! I grabbed three types of matcha. I freaking forgot to order the tins for the Matcha though…
Ive been wanting this tea for the longest time, I knew that I would love it! This came in the Sweet Indulgence Box and I’m sooooooo happy that it was! This tea has this everything I wanted in a tea! Its creamy, sweet, and almost a caramel, almond flavor. My brother pointed out that it almost tasted like an amaretto. I steeped it for about 10 minutes and literally drank a 16 oz mug in 5 seconds because it was so delicious! I cold brewed the rest and cant wait to try it in the morning! This tea is so expensive though, yet it is definitely worth it.
i only have one more serving left so I am definitely cherishing it. I also ate one mulberry after my steep, yumm!
PS if anyone knows a tea that tastes like this and is a cheaper version , please let me know!
I’m really sad, I wanted to try a new tea and I found out that somebody BROKE my favorite glass mug, something about that mug I can trust that I am capable of making the perfect tea with ratio of water and tea. Also that it is glass, so I can see the color changing, or even adding milk!
So I made this tea knowing I already perfected the time, and somewhat scoops, and using my mom’s mug, it’s just not the same…
I actually had a cup of this last night, after Keychange posted her note, but it was so good I made a cup just now:)
Today started amazingly, but no details into that. Lol. The fragrance of this tea is nostalgic really, this blueberry tea reminds me of well you guessed it, Blueberries!! Lol. Growing up in New Orleans we had different types of fruits and actually never had a blueberry before. When I was 10, my family and I took a beautiful family vacation to Boston, not only did I made my dream to go to Harvard, but I had blueberries for the first time! Fresh blueberries picked from the garden! (We were staying at a family friends house) I still remember my reaction to eating blueberries, it was juicy, and sweet, and questioned why is it called blueberries, if it isn’t blue? (Questioning the interior flesh)
Anyways, this tea is definitely tasteful, that isn’t artificial, I steeped it for 5 minutes and any longer could probably ruin the stevia flavor.
