1392 Tasting Notes
Mmmm. This is very good too, but in a different way than Dolce Vita. It’s not as smack you in the face with fruit, but instead the mango and vanilla and cinnamon all coalesce together into something very relaxing and tasty. The cinnamon gives it a bit of a kick at the end of the sip to liven it up a little too.
I should try cold-steeping this!
Oh, this is the best way to start a Friday! It’s so freakin’ creamy and full of raspberry. Slightly tart raspberry but, wait for it, there’s NO HIBISCUS. I really love this tea.
I should probably leave this at the office but I just got it and I’m so excited and I’m not going to be surprised when at the end of the day I stuff all my new teas into my purse to stuff onto my tea shelves at home. Why do I even order tea for the office? :P Seems lik my new teas stay at home, and my small samples get smuggled into the office for sipdowns. But it works?
Anyway this tea is OMG raspberry yes.
I’m so happy ifjuly sent some of this way! I had a few sips, and then added it to my shopping list. Yes, this is a good tea. Even though it has a doofy horse on the tin. :P
It’s warm, and bready, and there’s a bit of honey, and it makes me think of bread out of the oven with a little butter and something sweet on top of it. It’s really good. Very smooth mouthfeel. Warm, comforting taste. No one has been exaggerating with these reviews. There is NO conspiracy to make you go out and buy this tea!
I want to go buy this tea. I’ll have to coordinate with Sil because $10 shipping to Canada is TOO MUCH for one tin. I was hoping they’d offer a shipping discount sale as they are wont to do from time to time.
I keep drinking amazing teas all day with multiple infusions. I’m only on tea 2 for the day – hahaha
Flavors: Baked Bread, Honey
This tea is suited “For Tiger-Taming, Early Mornings, and Getting on with it.”
Yes please! I definitely need some of that – we are going to switch our drivers license over and start the process of transferring the car, and maybe get Ontario health cards too… Uugggh. I hate bureaucracy stuff. I totally need some tiger taming.
This tea helps me feel a little prepared for the day; it’s rich and dark and beautiful. OMG. I get malt, and honey and maybe even a little bit of a spice, like nutmeg or cinnamon that adds a little but of sweetness against all this malt.
Wow. It’s incredible.
Thanks again JustJames for sending this to me so long again. I don’t have much left but I really like it. I keep forgetting how good it is, but when i drink it I get coffee and raspberry and nuts and it’s just freaking perfect.
I did drink this after finishing my coffee because I wanted to make sure I was super awake and it did the trick. Maybe too awake. Gotta get off the tumblr now and start doing some actual work.
I might be just a little chai on life. I finished this cup and am down to 164, even though I didn’t have much time to log tea today.
I did find this amazing gifset on tumblr though: http://destiel-is-my-canon.tumblr.com/post/76689869658/asdfghjkl-i-cant-justdestiel#notes Yeah….. there’s nothing going on behind those looks. Nope, nope nope.
And here’s a lovely and heartbreaking post-reichenbach Sherlock comic strip: http://asset-9.soup.io/asset/3777/0315_9fd1.jpeg
I also created my own ridic tumblr and am having fun with it. I had to start queuing stuff because I want to reblog everything. :P
Another successful sample from MissB! Well, as successful as I can get with my nose stuff up again. I wouldn’t mind being a sleeping bear myself and just skipping the rest of winter!
From what I can taste of this, this tea is a nice refreshing green with a bit of buttery vegetal notes. There’s also more to it – like pine needles. I’ll have to resteep it!
Also I’ll try the last of it later when I can fully appreciate the nuances.
Bedtime sipdown (166!)
This is such a great tea. So relaxing and citrusy, and I can even handle all the chamomile!
Maybe I’ll hit 150 before the end of the month after. Only if my samples fromm MissB and Aun-Juli are late, but either way I’ll probably be close, and that’s good enough for me. I’m not going to push because I have tons of new teas to try and don’t want to worry just about rotating the old out.
To be honest, I wasn’t too enthused about this tea that MissB gave me a sample of, but that was stupid of me. This tea is amazing and so great. It tastes
lime like mint chocolate, with dark rich chocolate, yet there is only mint added in.
That’s either magic or expert blending! Thank you so much!
(I wish I could wax poetic about this one, but I can barely keep my eyes open! )
ETA: SIPDOWN 167!
I re-steeped this three times, and it was really good! It still surprises me that 10 seconds is the right amount of time to steep, but apparently it is. APPARENTLY.
It started off as sweet and lightly creamy, but progressed to a woodsier brew. I probably could have kept going with it but I dumped my leaves into the sink and then figured it was time to move onto a different tea. But I am learning to enjoy puerhs more and maybe there’s something to Sheng.
This tea really made me happy I grabbed the Amoda box because I likely would not have had it any time soon and getting pushed out of my comfort zone is just what I need!
