102 Tasting Notes
This is the first time ever that I’ve woken up early enough to have a cuppa before work. Usually I roll out of bed and flail about in a hurry because I’m going to be late. I got a sample of this with my last order and have been dying to try it.
I was so determined to make this sample last that I think I understeeped it (I probably for about 1m20s). Regardless, it was very tasty. The pineapple was sweet and almost candy-like, which was most likely due to the bit of agave I had put in my cup. Not going to do that on the second steep. It tasted pretty thin and I didn’t get much of the oolong taste, and I’m hoping that it’ll pop up in the second steep.
Just brewed up the second steep (5mins) and I hope I have time to savour it before work!
Still catching up on my DavidsTea advent calendar from last year and sipping on this while I marathon the first season of Bomb Girls.
This is nice (but I think I underleafed) and probably tastes great iced. It was refreshing to taste kiwi in a tea. I wish it were a bit stronger though, at times it seemed overpowered by the apple.
Spending New Years Eve with a pot of this since I have to work tomorrow morning so I can’t go out (well, I could but I would suffer the consequences).
I love cherries but this was not for me. This comes off as sour hibiscus to me and I think it’d be alright iced. I’m not a big fan of iced teas though so I don’t think I’ll be giving it a go. It gets much more tolerable as I drink it though.
Steep time: 5 mins. Added agave.
Rating: 30. Not or me.
Ever do that thing where you start watching a horror movie by yourself during the day and you’re like, “Wow, this isn’t even scary,” and by the time you finish it, it’s nighttime and suddenly every creak you hear and shadow you see is obviously some monster that is going to make you its meal?
Okay, well, with me it’s a book (well, The Walking Dead graphic novels to be specific), and I’ve been powering through them (and also a few pots of black tea to keep me going) all day. Suddenly it’s 11 pm and the caffeine from the black tea has me jumping at everything (I scared the crap out of my cat, poor thing). I need a nice, tasty herbal to calm my nerves so here I sit with a nice cup of this tea. It’s fruity and reminds me of summer and definitely helps me keep my mind off of flesh-eating zombies. (Seriously, who knew that things that move .0008 miles per hour and probably can’t even master a set of stairs could be so freaky?)
Steep time: 5 mins.
