269 Tasting Notes
Pass the Stash TTB1
Love the name. I’m sure the chai was supposed to be the main “stormy” flavor but it just doesn’t make it for me. There is too much cinnamon in the blend for my taste. I love the scent of the almonds but it there is just too much competing for “top dog” as far as the flavors.
Flavors: Almond, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Cream
FIVE MORE DAYS UNTIL THE NEW DOCTOR WHO!!!
Okay, I got that off my chest :-)
Golden Honey Dew… yum, yum, yummy. Scent, taste and aroma are very melon-y. When I tried to sip it right away it was too hot and I didn’t get the melon but I did get a burned tongue. After it cooled a bit and I added some stevia I found the most delightful melon flavor. It really fills the mouth nicely and has a very refreshing taste. I am really enjoying this. I could definitely add this to my cupboard! I imagine it is good cold but I really am enjoying it hot. Thanks NayLyn!
Now on to other things… It was the first day of school here. I’m retired but I am helping a friend of mine (who has low vision) with her first – second grade split of 34 STUDENTS!! When she took the job, after two years on disability, the principal said there would be 22 kids altogether. Now there are 34! The air conditioner isn’t working. It’s hot!! In a very short time I had forgotten how noisy, whiny, distracted etc. they are the first day of school. (It must be like childbirth where you forget how awful it is when it is over) If she gets 2 more students and the school board approves they can split it into separate first grade and second grade classes. If you have any spare 1st or 2nd grade students at home please send them to Highland School Elgin, IL.
Pass the Stash TTB
I’ve been bad about giving credit to the several TTBs I’ve had this past two weeks. Sorry! It’s about all I can do is to get some of the tasting notes in on the teas.
The huckleberry is not as strong as it could have been. The black goes well with the huckleberry. I sweetened it a little and I’m enjoying it. I wouldn’t be in my top teas but certainly will enjoy another cup of. I might keep this one from the Pass the Stash box. I think it might be good cold brewed with a twist of lemon.
It’s a lovely summer day and I’m enjoying this as a hot tea. I have to say my decision to drink more hot tea this summer is going well. I don’t find myself over heated or anything. :-)
Nice bright lemon flavor. Not a sour lemon. I taste the lemon myrtle most. I love, love, love lemon myrtle. Ever since we went to Australia I have had an obsession with lemon myrtle! Not sure if i taste the chiffon/pastry but it really doesn’t matter to me. :-)
Flavors: Lemon, Vanilla
I haven’t had this in a while because of the calories. Today I just need something somewhat indulgent or I’m going to get something REALLY indulgent. I made it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I made it cold and poured it over ice. Quite yummy!
I’m still working my way through the TTBs. It is so overwhelming(!) but fun! :-)
I’m helping a friend get her classroom set up for school. I forgot how much work it is for a first grade classroom. One of the problems is that it is actually a first/ second split, so it has all the first grade and all the second grade materials were thrown together. Now the principal is saying they might move her to another room. She starts school on Monday and the principal still can’t decide whether to move her! We may have a busy couple of days!
Nice blueberry scent and a bit of cream cheesiness. I taste a slight bit of pastry. Very lovely morning tea when all I can dream of was pastry, donuts, cinnamon rolls….. Now I have to go grocery shopping and avoid the real thing.
Flavors: Blueberry, Creamy, Pastries
I have not had a lot of pu erhs before but this certainly would be at the top of the list. The vanilla and caramel are wonderful together. Very smooth and moth filling. Can tea be round? That is how it tastes to me. Fills up all the corners of my mouth. Yum!
Flavors: Caramel, Vanilla
