1915 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! 1 tea down, 8,000 to go. :)
I have enjoyed this today as an iced tisane and also hot. It’s one of the better green rooibos blends I’ve had but I doubt I’ll seek it out again, it just isn’t that memorable….
Sipdpwn today! How sad…
I have loved this tea and the snowy garden, I think I will end up buying more of both eventually. So delicious. Today I iced this and put in one sugar packet.
Tea of the morning here; the weather is sunny and nice and it just seems like a green tea sort of day here. This is really good with rice milk added in. One of Frank’s yummiest green blends IMO.
okay, here’s another ff darjeeling sample I picked up from Upton earlier this year…
I do tend to like ff darjeelings, a LOT and this is no exception. The aroma of the tea reminds me of roses and sandalwood with tropical fruit and the flavor is delightful. Their tasting notes say citrus rind and grape, I’m definitely getting the grape but not sure about the citrus. This does have a light pungency but overall not too bothersome. Sometimes pungent teas make my stomach a bit queasy. This is pretty good but I might try steeping it a lower temp next time around and keep a better eye on my steeping time.
I got this sample from Upton Tea Imports a while back and was curious to try it. I’ve had Mandala Tea’s version but that’s about it for me and this leaf.
The other taster here was not too fond of it, but I rather liked it. It’s a mild green tea similar in appearance and flavor to a dragonwell. I’m definitely getting the light chestnut flavor here and it’s sweet and mild, with vegetal flavors similar to corn. Very gentle character which is great for the first afternoon cuppa.
I’d like to try this side by side with Mandala’s version but overall it was very enjoyable to me.
Tea of the morning… it seemed like this was better than I remember it, anyway it was pretty yummy with a bit of soymilk. Good for waking up (or trying to, anyway)
Finished this one off but am trying to resist buying any more. I need to put myself on a tea diet. :)
Tea of the morning here!
Somehow I was in the mood for something slightly decadent this morning and I love the flavor of this one. You’d think I might be more in the mood for something summery but it’s cold and foggy here today. ;)
I am TIRED after going to a 3 hour long yoga and dance session yesterday but it was FUN!
Tea of the afternoon here. I am so happy it’s Friday!
I just woke up from a nap and decided I needed to have some tea before I go out to get my haircut. This is a delicious matcha but I really like it as a latte! TGIF Steepster!
