2305 Tasting Notes
I have rather enjoyed this and will probably get more someday. I’m not a huge fan of Keemun but somehow it works here with the Nilgiri and Ceylon. I wouldn’t have thought of putting those together myself but it’s a tasty blend.
I’m happy to have my Silk Soymilk back for tea. Regarding plant based milks, I keep trying different ones and Silk Soymilk is definitely the best one for tea, it doesn’t impart much of a flavor but it makes things nice and creamy.
Tea of the eveing here. I’m not exactly ready for the holidays but I was ready for dessert. Lately I’ve been trying to banish all sweets from the house which is probably good for my waistline. this is a nice substitute, especially with a little bit of soymilk and stevia, which is how I like to drink it. I wonder if I will finish off my box from last year before Christmas? In any case, I’m kind of looking forward to the holiday teas.
Tea of the morning here. I’m not usually a sencha in the morning type of gal, but I’m all out of soy milk and the flax milk I last got at Whole Foods was so disgusting I threw it out. Mostly sugar and additives. Blecch! Anyway this is a nice sencha especially if you prefer things a it more on the mellow side. I should probably make a point to finish this off soon although it’s been sitting in my refrigerator, I hope that keeps it fresh for longer.
Tea of the mid-morning here. This stuff is good but I don’t really like it plain, I blended mine with some soymilk so create a latte. I haven’t been using this too much, the macadamia matcha got consumed a long time ago. I should find a dessert I could make with this matcha, now that it’s fall… a nice treat for the weekend
Tea of the morning here, somehow I needed to just reach for a favorite. This is such a tasty and comforting assam for me. My boss has had a cold all week and I got it now too, life has been frustrating me lately with various and sundry health issues but at least there’s good tea to cheer me up. :)
I’m not a HUGE fan of licorice in tea but I’ve been reading so much about the anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties of it, I figured it would be a good idea to keep some around for cold season and such. A lot of people seem to hate the flavor of licorice but I’ve always liked it in candy, also I like anything anise or fennel related so I don’t have too many licorice “issues.”
This tea is very sweet… that was one of the first things I noticed about it. No need for sugar at all! I am not picking up on the orange peel but I get some other spicy notes from the cardamom, clove and black pepper. It’s a nice tisane and I can see myself drinking a lot of it when winter officially starts around here.
I remember there used to be a plain Yogi tea that was like a chai herbal blend but I can’t seem to find it anymore, I think they stopped making it which is too bad. I liked it! The Yoga Blend from Jasmine Pearl Tea Merchants is a good substitute.
I am amazed I finally finished off a tin of this. I have a few other teas from Simpson and Vail I’ve hardly touched but this went fairly quickly. When I first got it I wasn’t even sure I liked it but it’s better when you steep it for a longer period of time.
I added a bit of soymilk to this and liquid stevia. My friend turned me on to that idea, she carries a small bottle of liquid stevia everywhere and that way you can just put a few drops in. A little really goes a long way!
Tea of the afternoon here – I did jivamukti yoga this morning and am going to restorative yoga tonight. Pretty impressive for someone with a fractured finger but I did have to modify some of the standing poses.
Anyway this is a really nice rose congou but I’ve had it for a while and haven’t been drinking it fast enough (story of my life). I think it has lost a bit of the rose flavor. Someday I should try this as an iced tea.
