1633 Tasting Notes
I’ve been too busy to log all my tea, but this was a sipdown. A fantastic tea too! As soon as I get my coupon from Verdant I’m placing an order for 1oz! :O
I’m getting apple butter from this one. Wow. I didn’t have that before, but I brewed this western style. Gawd, this is so good.
This was the tea that I drank the most of today, but today was my daughter’s first birthday and she was getting over a cold so basically between that and the ongoing crowd of people, I wasn’t able to let go of her the whole day. So, I couldn’t really make a lot of tea. :| I’ll live – it was a great day overall, and the baby felt better during the evening so she could visit everyone else.
I can drink all the other teas later!
This was in my Amoda box! I finally got around to reviewing it after packing half of it up for TerriHarpLady.
Now I almost wish I wasn’t sharing it!! Bahahahahah. (Not really though – I have some excellent samples coming my way).
I was surprised by this. It’s smooth, yet astringent in a good way, bold, and a touch smoky! I should have had this in the morning, but I’ll resteep it and stay up instead. It’s almost a little creamy too? Wow. I’m happy I gave the Amoda box a try!
So this is the Earl Grey! And it’s a sipdown! (Much needed too, I gotta say. My samples from Courtney came in yesterday and now I’m over 230, with a Butiki order coming in the next few weeks, and some more samples from Sil! Haha. BEST problems to have).
This is a pretty decent Earl Grey. It’s really not that strong but there is a tangy astringency at the end of each sip. It’s enjoyable, but I think I prefer EGC over regular EG’s. And yes, I know I could just ADD cream, but… I’m lazy? Also I guess I’m just used to drinking it plain.
I think this must be the chocomate. It HAS to be because the other tumbler has Teajo’s Earl Grey in it and those are different animals.
I don’t know anything about this tea as I’m reviewing it ninja style at work, writing the text in a draft email that I’ll copy/paste from when I can pop online. It really reminds me of coffee. It’s dark and strong, and there are a few cocoa notes in there, as well as something like bark. It makes me feel like I should wake up! I haven’t hard much to eat/drink this morning besides tea so I’ll slow down on finishing this until I get some lunch, otherwise I have a feeling this will make me feel heady and dizzy.
Thank you Sil for the sample!
Oh and I can’t wait until next week when I get set up in my new office with my own computer and I won’t have to worry about people walking by and looking at me on the internet. Don’t get me wrong guys, I do work really hard. But I do it so that I can take mental breaks whenever I want them.
