125 Tasting Notes
So this is one that I forgot to log last week. I had brewed it for christmas eve morning for my work morning. I think I may have steeped it too long, as the taste just was really strong. Maybe I just didn’t enjoy the smell and taste of the ginger. But I ended up dumping it in the sink. So I may try it again and steep it lightly.
Just realized that I never ogged this tea yet, how bad of me. To not share this wonderful tea with anyone. My apologies. Well this tea is just a treat for me. I don’t have a kusmi store near me so I have to ration these lovely teas. Jasmine Green has got to be my favorite kusmi tea. It is just perfect for leaving the bag in, it doesn’t overpower or get too strong. I had this yesturday while relaxing by the fire.
So I tried this tea on Christmas eve and yesturday while visiting a david’s tea store. For a while I have been looking for a tea that has that chocolately soemthing that I wanted. And this makes me happy. I think I finally found it. Funny thing is that I didn’t notice the chocolate, my fiancee did. It really is just a delicious tea, no wonder is is the tea of the month for december. :) It really is a wintery treat.
Day 18 on the advent calendar… was too busy working to drink this yesterday. So I decided to make a pot this morning. The smell was comforting, but did not make me think of walnuts, but I still think this is a good tea. It isn’t just a regular mug of green tea, there is a special twist, a different ( good) taste to it. And I really am just enjoying it this morning. This is something I would consider buying when my tea collection dwindles down a bit.
So Yesturday I stopped by David’s Tea and was in the mood to try a different tea. I told the nice saleslady which teas I already own and love and as per her recoomendation and a smell test, I went with Bhudda’s Blend. I do no regret getting this one bit, it was a nice and lighter version of three wishes and had a soothing flowery smell. I was just completely taken by it. I should get a tin of this sometime soon.
So I went to David’s Tea quickly yesterday as I was in the mall and returning stuff. I decided a quick stop in DT before heading home would make my day. I got a tea to go and saw the samples. I already know what Chocolate Chili Chai tastes like, so I went for the Bravissimo, excited to try a new flavour. I think it’s safe to say that it is not my cup of tea. It tasted like licorice, which I usually like, but there was another flavour in there that just made me say ewww gross. So I ended up not finishing the sample.
