1903 Tasting Notes
Tea of the morning here, without a doubt one of my favorite dessert teas. Might have to get some more when my current supply runs out.
Hope everyone is having a great day!
Tea of the afternoon here. I’m not a real big fan of flavored puerhs but this is nice for an after lunch beverage due to the cardamom. Someday I’ll have to try taking out of the teabag because I think it tastes too much like wet paper.
Tea of the morning here. I got this as a sample with one of my Lupicia newsletters.
I tend to like fruity teas and Lupicia seems to have a lot of them. This blend is fairly enjoyable, the black tea has a very smooth and mild flavor and I found the guava to be quite natural and subtle. I thought this might be good with almond milk, but I was wrong. Now it just tastes like almond flavored kool-aid, but part of the problem is I just don’t like almond milk in tea or coffee. :P
This would be good as an iced tea, I think. Not a “must have” item but I would certainly not turn a cup down if it was offered to me.
I’ve had this oolong for 2 years now according to my Steepster notes. I finally decided to finish off the bit I had today and this still seems really good to me, very buttery with sweet vegetal notes. I shall miss it, but I think I have a good excuse to purchase some more green oolongs soon since I don’t have too many more left. ;)
This is equally good prepared gong fu or western style.
Backlogging – last night we we hanging out at an ashram listening to this guy, Laraaji play the zither and practicing laughter yoga.
(yes, I am weird, so what, lol) So it seemed like this was an appropriate tisane to have in the evening time. This is really good with a touch of coconut sugar to just sweeten it up a bit. Takes the chill out of the fog here and the cardamom/ginger blend is good for digestion.
Just a cup I am having in hopes that it will perk me up. You know you’re middle aged when the idea of going to bed early on a Friday night is much more appealing than going out to a party! :)
Tea of the mid-morning here. I am fond of these darker oolongs but I usually drink them in the wintertime, However, today it’s foggy here as usual in the summertime. This tea is roasty and cozy, see previous notes for more details.
Backlogging: this was a sipdown from yesterday, just kept drinking it until it was gone. I find this tea is better when it steeps for around 5 minutes or so, letting all of the flavors really meld. It was good but probably won’t be a repurchase for me.
Tea of the morning here. Perhaps this isn’t one to drink early in the morning – but then again why not? :)
It’s nice with a touch of brown sugar and some soymilk!
This came in the Lupicia grab bag. I like chamomile okay but I’ve never had elderflower before. The tea seemed to be very vegetal like corn husks or something, I also found it slightly bitter. Wouldn’t drink this for the taste of it, really but it did seem to be nice and relaxing. Also I was interested about the health benefits of elderflower after I did some research on it, evidently it’s good for allergies.
