943 Tasting Notes
Lovely! It seems like a fairly simple tea with a strong apple flavour (I’m getting green apple for some reason) and lots of toastiness. I feel like there’s a bit more depth to it than that though on further sips.
I didn’t expect this to show up today either with the holiday but I feel spoiled. Poor Della Terra Tea. I don’t know that they make much from me. I bought all these teas when they were 30% off, spent $30 for the free shipping, they gave me a free sample of one of the Valentine’s teas, and then they spent $11 just on postage. Great deal for me. I hope they do well too bc they’re one of my top 3 tea companies! :p
WoohoO! Drinking Butterbeer in my LotR mug, while reading the Thirteenth book of the Wheel of Time and wearing my Han Shot First shirt.
I wish I had TARDIS jewelry so I could mix my fandoms up more.
This was good – I’m happy I bought it, and someday I hope to get more.
My cupboard currently lists 104 teas, 3 of which are actually teaware and don’t count. But it’s still more than I want so I am in sipdown mode! I’d like to get closer to 80.
I’d like to get closer to having 15-20 staple teas that I always “need” to have on hand, and maybe another 20-30 little sample sizes to play around with. That’s probably not ever going to heppen but…
I’m not really getting a lot of marshmallows out of this – more like bubblegum? And it feels a little thick in my mouth, although not unpleasantly. It’s minty and relaxing – just what I wanted.
Thanks Josie Jade!
This might not be for everyone, but it’s insanely cinnamony. A pretty bold afternoon cup. This would be a good one once I return to work – my cubicle would smell nice too.
And there goes the last of my sample. I loved it while it lasted.
I had this earlier but want to make a note of it before I forget: this is really good! I didn’t know if I’d be crazy about the rose, bu it was really enjoyable. I wouldn’t to drink it all the time, but it will make for a nice treat.
Thanks Terri HarpLady
Sometimes… sometimes this is all I need. <3
This was the tea that I drank every day, all day, before I discovered loose leaf.
I’ve had bad luck with my last two cups not working out (dumped immediately), so time to try an Oolong instead of a third black.
This is just what I needed!
First steep was 90 seconds as the package directed. It’s very creamy, buttery and has lots of spinach notes. It smells like tasty oolong and the tea itself looks barely yellow.
Second steep: 110 seconds. It’s a deep golden yellow this time around, and the creamy butter has subsided. I’m getting spinach notes still and other oolongy flavours. Very rich.
Third steep: 120 seconds. It’s almost orange yellow, and very vegetal. Very enjoyable.
