2418 Tasting Notes
Tea of the morning and it’s a sipdown. I’m all done with this yummy tea from Della Terra but am looking at buying some holiday teas right now :)
This has a sweet pumpkin flavor and is pretty goo with a bit of stevia, this is the 2nd time I have purchased it from Della Terra. See previous notes for more details.
It’s a sipdown for me and this tea!
This was pretty good for a dessert tea, I have enjoyed it. Not sure I need more but might be a re-purchase next time I order something from Simpson and Vail. It’s good with a little stevia to perk it up a bit. Kind of an odd choice for breakfast but it works for me…
I may be getting weird in my old age but I am always seeing these chia seed infused juice drinks around and I thought I would try making a chia iced tea.
I cold brewed this overnight and added the chia seeds this morning. After letting them sit for a few hours they got nice and plump. It’s kind of tasty, albeit slimy. It you try this I would recommend shaking the drink every once in a while to prevent the chia seeds from clumping together.
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.
