1767 Tasting Notes
My Justea box arrived today and the mailman was nice enough to leave it outside for me! Whee!
I bought it on Boxing Day so I snagged 75g of Chai which is going into another box witha bunch of samples to my sister. I hope she enjos exploring all of these.
The first few sips of this were sorta sour and just really strong and ripe, and a little weird. But it mellowed out once it cooled and now it is really good: malty and fruity and strong. Phew! Now I have no regrets about 150g of this baby sitting on my shelf!
This is a necessary sipdown. I have a lot of teas coming in and I need to finish off some smaller ones so they don’t get stale.
Also, with the Amoda box teas I want to finish off the old ones before the new box comes! They might even have shipped already! :O
This one is sparkly and apply and very cozy. I should be going to sleep but I’m still getting used to going to bed at a decent time but so long as I’m on my bus by 8:09, I’m rocking! (And I can drink mate when I get to work. I only brought 10 teas with me. They said to make myself comfortable but I don’t wnat to scare them. Yet)
And here’s this one again. Is this a sencha?
I don’t even know if I’ve had a sencha so I’m not sure where I’m getting this idea from, but it makes me think of sencha and cherry. And it’s sweet but also just a little salt. I sear I’m picking that up. It’s intersting, but not my favourite blend.
Just looking at reviews earlier and I’m reminded I will need MOAR moose tracks!
And this is a sipdown of a tea I WILL sorely miss. But it was perfect today as I wanted to be alert for my first day at my new job! :D
I’m sorta an office manager/personal assistant at a company that does special effects for TV shows and movies. It’s amazing! And not only does it pay well, it’s everything else I want: casual, in my own boss, set my own hours, have my own personal space, am part of a small team… I get to wear turn jeans and geeky tees too! And I can possibly help with creating the effects (mostly dead bodies).
My boss told me to make my space my own so I’m bringing my kettle tomorrow, and a 10 pack of mini tins!
(and I work off my own computer so no one is checking if I pop on Steepster so, I’ll be more up to date on my logs!)
I bought this on Black Friday but haven’t had a chance to try it yet. My bad.
This is really amazing. I was just sipping away at it distractedly while looking for daycares and I was just hit – whammmo! – with a burst of fresh lime. Wow. So refreshing. I can still taste the chamomile and the overall effect is quite soothing. Like floating on a cloud before sleep. Or some such nonsense.
