1693 Tasting Notes
Thanks Sil for this one. I wonder if I overleafed it or oversteep it. It’s strong and a little bitter. That doesn’t sound like Martha. Martha is so kickass.
I wish she wasn’t so doe-eyed about the Doctor but I love that she became such a badass and moved on to live her own life instead of being in his shadow…
Glad I got to try this one. The caramel is a nice touch. Not my favourite fandom blend, but… they’re really hard to make good. I g ot something salty in the base too. Or maybe I’m just more attuned to some kind of salt taste because my oolong yesterday was also super salty. :O
Thank you Sil for the tea you’ve so delightful and accurately described as looking like rabbit turds. (233)
Well, believe it or not I actually enjoyed it. It was a dark and roasty oolong and the ginger was strong but not overwhelming. The roasty/ginger was actually a pretty good combo.
I’m happy I tried it, but I doubt I’d buy it. I’m not that much a fan of ginger.
I’m not usually a breakfast blend sorta girl, preferring to go right for m y Tiger Assam for the roughest of mornings, but I am surrounded by samples that are demanding attention. So here goes!
y eyes are still lidded and heavy because I didn’t sleep enough the past 2 days, but I don’t think I can blame the tea for that. It’s trying it’s best.
It’s really dark and malty, and I think I’m getting bread notes from it as well. It’s an interesting mix! I suspect it’ll taste better once it cools a bit. I might just add a splash of milk to it to help it cool so I can get more wake-up-juice in me STAT! (235)
Thanks Dexter for letting me try this one! I’ve been experimenting with Lupicia teas and this was one I was interested in. (237)
It’s smells lightly like raspberry, but the flavouring is quite light. When I sip it, I taste the black base, then bright raspberry following by a little dark chocolate. It’s really quite muted though. I enjoy it but wish it were stronger, so I’m not sure I’d actually order this, not when I love the banane chocolat so much more. :) But now I know so I’m happy!
Another sample from Sil! (238)
I’m drinking this one while I catch up on my backlogging from earlier. It’s a really nice oolong – it’s darker instead of greener, which is what I like, and it has a bit of caramel sweetness to it that I am a fan of. I could see myself drinking this one fairly frequently.
