1696 Tasting Notes
I’ve been drinking this for hours, although I only re-steeped it once. Part of me feels guilty, like I’m wasting quality tea here, but OTOH, I am drinking 20 oz of it so it’s not like I didn’t get much for that 1 scoop of leaves.
I should try my Amoda teas soon, but I want to add them to my cupboard and log them when I do, so I’ll wait a few ore days to make sure everyone else has had a chance to do so. If it wasn’t for the fact that everyone knows these are Butiki teas that you can ONLY get in the box, I’d just log it and not mention Amoda. :P
I feel like I needed this tea today.
I feel like nothing else would do.
Thankfully I have it on hand.
Maybe it’ll snap me out of this funk.
ETA: It did. It snapped me out and I feel more like a thinking breathing human being again.
Oh and here’s a trailer for the Christmas episode of Doctor Who: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TWwYLlcPekA
I had a craving for this today, but sadly it was the same time I did the dishes and I ended up steeping this for about 7 minutes.
Huh. I’m sorry Cafe Vanilla. You SMELL wonderful. You’re just a little strong. I’ll have to add a little bit of milk to even it out.
This is a really nice tea though. The vanilla is subtle but not underpowered if that makes sense.
I’ve had this unopened pack sitting around for a year but I’ve been afraid to try it.
My first sip? It started off flat, but near the end I started to get some orange-pekoe goodness. Followed by coffee grounds.
My cup smells like coffee. I didn’t clean out everything at the top so I probably had a few grounds sneak in. My machine is a few years old so I don’t know if the new ones still have that issue. Either way, I’m not going to completely clean this just because I’m switching between coffee and tea insta-drinks.
I’ll probably stick with coffee drinks in this, but I just wanted to try it and log it.
And an evil part of me wanted to add it to our Steepster database! Go ahead! ADD it to your cupboard!!!
(And I do like my Tassimo. I just don’t think it’s suitable for tea. And I can’t drink the chai latte’s anymore because the ‘milk’ tastes so artificial and weird. But the Tim Hortons coffeee… gimme!)
Della Terra has a black unflavoured blend? Ok – I’d better snap it up and give it a shot!
And I like it. It’s very English Breakfast-y, with a bit of a sharp note at the end of each sip that is trying to snap me awake. It’s not working, but it’s not the tea’s fault as I barely had any sleep at all last night. I don’t expect miracles.
But I haven’t had an unflavoured tea in too long. This was nice. It’s more complex than I had anticipated and I bet it would be lovely with milk and sugar too.
This tea is normally pretty amazing, but I think I accidently underleafed it.
Also, it’s a rooibos. I probably should have steeped it longer.
I’m sorry Carrot Cake. I know you can be better than this!
It pairs well with Graham crackers, btw.
Also, I wanted to ask – have you guys had issues with your “likes” disappearing? I read everyone’s notes and like them as I go, and then when I go back I find they aren’t there. :( I think part of it is my phone doesn’t register anything, but I think it does it when I’m on the computer too. (Speak up and lemme know I’m not imagining things!)
I don’t know what spiced plum is supposed to taste like, but I bought it out of curiosity. To be honest, it’s not my favourite. I do get fruity plum, with that dark, dank note or whatever it is that you get with plums. And I also get cinnamon. Not as much cinnamon as a cinnamon spice spice tea though.
I think my problem is that I’m not that into plums? And I should have known that? Oh well. It’s only an oz. :P
Om nom nom.
This is perfect caramel and marshmallow gooeyness. It’s another top-notch win from Della Terra.
Why did I only buy 1 oz? :O
(Oh, because I was greedy and wanted to try a ton of new teas too!)
Relaxing with this tea is helping to take away some of the stress in my neck from knitting troubles. Just… relax. :P I’ll figure this stupid cast-on eventually! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQOZ8GWM9sE)
OMG – I have 146 new notices since last I checked. Staying up to date on steepster is a lot of work!
