2170 Tasting Notes
It’s at work and it’s free, what more can I say?
This is a blend of spearmint and peppermint, I guess you would either like something like this or you don’t. It’s kinda hard to mess this up, I’d imagine. Might be better if it was organic. I still like the Mint Fields by Republic of Tea due to the lemon balm added.
Tea of the afternoon here. I can’t believe I’ve never logged this one before because it seems like I’ve had it a bunch of times already before I bought this latest batch.
I am really liking this! It’s buttery, slightly vegetal with a light peach and floral quality. Sometimes Lupicia teas can be a bit artificial in flavor but this particular blend is quite lovely. I’d recommend checking it out if you’re into flavored oolongs…. I steeped mine for around 4 minutes only because I forgot about it. :)
I went to Lupicia yesterday with a friend of mine and this is the only tea I ended up buying (shocking!)
I’ve had this one before and I remember liking it. I brewed some up this morning and then had it over ice. Unfortunately I think the ice diluted the flavor too much so I will have to try cold brewing it sometime.
I had a lovely dinner tonight with my friend S. at this vegan restaurant Millennium. We definitely had a bit of a splurge but it was fun and well worth it for a special occasion. I had a shaved asparagus, avocado and bitter greens salad with a smoked tempeh entree. We shared the apple cake for dessert and I was so full but not overwhelming so because the food was really healthy.
Anyway I have written about this tea quite a few times but it’s still one of my favorite rooibos blends. I really enjoy rooibos in the evening and this was great with soymilk and a touch of teavana’s rock sugar which I got as a gift last year from my brother.
It was such a delightful day and now I am really to doze off happily in slumber land…
Backlogging. I had some of this at Spirit Rock Meditation Center on Saturday, where I spent Earth Day with my charming guy. I don’t often go for straight up peppermint as it can be too strong for me and can give me heartburn. I appreciated the mint blend here along with the lemon balm, it made for a nice refreshing after lunch tisane. Republic of Tea often disappoints me but I rather liked this. I also appreciate the fact that it’s organic. May need to pick some of this up at the grocery store…
Tea of the morning here. I can’t believe I have never written a proper tasting note on this but I also don’t have a lot of time this morning. I hope to update this soon.
I brewed this in a tea infuser mug and it has such delightful vegetal notes with a creamy quality. I would like to short steep this someday when I have more time to appreciate it. Overall a very flavorful dragonwell, I would probably purchase this again. Now that summertime is coming I hope to drink some more of my green teas.
