Backlog from Friday night.

This was a swap from Jude many moons ago. I think if I had tried it when I first got it, I would have enjoyed it more. However, in the intervening period between then and now, a few things happened:

1. It got stored next to Tealux’s “Secret of Love” tea in my cupboard, and
2. I tried Teavivre’s Silver Needle Jasmine tea.

That’s a lethal combination, as this silver needle tea had a really high bar to clear while inadvertently absorbing the flavours of the much stronger tea right next to it.

Unfortunately, it couldn’t hold up. The jasmine flavour was barely there, and instead I got a whole lot of white tea weakness.

I disliked this so much, in fact, that I put the remaining unused leaf in the compost. I knew I wouldn’t drink the rest.

Sorry, Jude.

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Wegmans
1020 tasting notes

I had this tea earlier this evening, and it was every kind of yummy. As always, I added sugar and milk, and, as always, it tasted like a delicious almond cookie.

This is so good I think I’m going to buy a bunch of it the next time I’m at the store just to have on hand. I’m afraid they’ll take it off the shelf soon since it’s part of the winter tea line. I’m not ready to run out of this tea/dessert-in-a-cup yet!

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Wegmans

Backlogging.

Another tea from yesterday. I fully admit that I grabbed this tea out of desperation. Yesterday was a cold, rainy, dreary day, and all I wanted to do was eat butter cookies and play World of Warcraft. I totally blame my husband for this because I quit playing WoW years ago, but he bought me the expansion and boosted my character to 90. If you have no idea what I’m talking about that’s ok. If you do know what I’m talking about you know what a time suck WoW can be. Ugh. If only it weren’t so much fun to play!

I was strong though! Instead, I made myself a cup of this and cleaned my house. The tea has become one of my favorite dessert teas because it really does taste like an almond cookie (with the addition of cream and sugar). It’s super, super tasty and it literally kept my hand out of the cookie jar. I love the big slivers of almond mixed in with the tea leaves. I don’t know how much nutty flavor they give the drink, but they are very pretty.

So, I had a yummy tea, and today I’m sitting in a nice, clean house. Sometimes being responsible stinks, but it does have its moments. :)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Heh, I completely understand the allures of WoW. I have started and quit a couple of times. I’m not currently playing, but was curious about the latest expansion. Ugh, can’t think about it, or I might get sucked back in.

So, congrats on having a more productive day! Cheers to your strength and delicious tea for helping! I’ll have to pick up this one to try next time I’m at Wegman’s.

Veronica

I quit after WotLK, so it’s been a while since I’ve played. I’ll tell you the expansion is fun, but I’ll leave it at that. :)

Do pick up the tea! It’s gooood!

Lots of sweet almond cookie flavor (milk and sugar added). This is great for when I want something sweet and don’t want to snack. I’m actually going to Wegman’s in a few minutes, and I’m tempted to pick up more of this. We shall see….

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Wegmans

Much of my day was spent traveling, so I was happy to finally settle at my friend’s house (I’m house sitting at the moment) and relax. I was even happier that I had brought along a few of my teas. This one has such a great almond flavor, and with the addition of sugar and milk tastes very much like an almond cookie. Without additions the tea is still very nice, and the almond and bread notes are easily discernible, but I can’t say that I get a true cookie flavor. So, sugar and milk it is. No regrets.

This is a fun little tea. Lots of almond flavor, and some cookie-like notes as well. I add cream and sugar which takes this from a nice tea to a full blown treat. Happy me! :)

I adore this one – I went back to Wegmans and got a bigger baggie of it I was so into it. I know it is seasonal, so I have to force myself not to hoard like a freak. I have more than enough delicious tea haha.

gmathis

Would love to check out a Wegman’s…they aren’t nearly as far west as they should be ;)

Veronica

Wegman’s is a dangerous place. I’ve never been a fan of grocery shopping, but I love that store… and spend way too much money there.

Veronica

@Leah – I did the same thing! It may be seasonal, but I’d be just as happy drinking this in May as I am sipping it in December. :)

I had my mom pick this up for me last week…she complained that she had to drive from Greece to Pittsford to get it, but I think she secretly enjoyed doing it. ;)

Veronica

@khailton611 – That was sweet of her! I drive past several grocery stores to get to my Wegman’s. I probably wouldn’t shop there as often as I do, but my daughter is allergic to several foods, and Wegman’s carries a lot of foods that she can eat that other stores don’t.

The fact that the tea aisle is awesome is a draw, too. :)

Yum. Lots of almond flavor with vanilla. It really does remind me of cookies. Great afternoon tea.

Which Wegmans are you finding these teas at? Do you bag it, or are they pre-packaged?

Veronica

The Wegman’s in Cherry Hill, NJ. I bag it myself. They have several shelves of loose tea that’s stored in large canisters. I just bag it, weigh it, and print off the sticker that has the price and bar code.

Ok, this is delicious. It actually taste like an almond sugar cookie. I added sugar and milk, and I have to say it’s one of the tastier dessert teas I’ve had in quite a while.

Yum.

Clearly I need to go to Wegmans and see their winter tea selection!

Veronica

Definitely! I honestly don’t remember the other winter/holiday teas my store stocked, but I want to say there were six in total. I’ll have to pay closer attention the next time I’m there. :)

Picked this out of the sample drawer. It’s a nice green with nice flavor. The jasmine is a bit light but I like that it’s not overpowering.

Something sweet and never sour. This blueberry tea is simply delicious. I wandered upon it into the loose tea section at Wegmans. I purchased it and was taken into a journey of delight. This tea was perfect, it was bright with berry flavor and didn;t need any added sugar or honey. I felt like I was drinking a cup of warm happiness. I highly recommend this for a morning tea. It will brighten your day.

Flavors: Blueberry, Honey

A Wegman’s just opened up near me. Of course I headed straight for the tea aisle. Imagine my delight to find they sold bulk loose tea! Picked up some of this stuff.

The aroma hits you with a pungent, woodsy punch. The liquor is a rich brown, like fine Corinthian leather, or maybe medium-roast coffee. The flavor, a hint of smoke, pipe tobacco leaves, a little dark chocolate, a nip of bitterness but not too much. Actually, it kind of reminds me of Scotch. It’s both rough and refined at the same time. Feels nice going down and warms your insides. But unlike most English Breakfasts, I don’t get much malt at all. This is one I could see myself acquiring a taste for. And it’s cheap, too!

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Honey, Smoke, Tobacco, Wood

Thanks for the sample cookies!

I drank this one iced with my lunch today. The blueberry flavor is nice and pretty natural, and the green tea is mild and a little vegetal. I think this would be better with a little tartness to offset the sweetness. Just my opinion though! Not bad, not spectacular either :)

I do enjoy this tea. It’s light, which can be a nice change from the fruity teas that are out there. And you can’t beat the price!

drank Ti Guan Yin by Wegmans
193 tasting notes

Oolong day continues with this Ti Guan Yin I picked up from the loose leaf section in my local Wegmans. I brewed 1.5tsp in 10oz at about 200degrees for 3 minutes. This tea is a bit confusing. To the eye it looks like a dark roast, with very tightly rolled dark balls that have a bit of a musty roasted scent. But once brewed the taste is much greener than the appearance of the leaves would suggest. It’s a bit mild and middle-of-the-road as far as oolongs go.

Honestly I find this a bit odd. It tastes like a typical green oolong with heavy flowery notes and nice sweetness just as you would expect. But then the roastyness comes in. It’s not bad tasting, I just can’t seem to get the two together in my mind. I’m used to oolongs that sit at the far ends of the spectrum and this is confusing my palate.

I’m pretty sure this is Rishi’s Iron Goddess of Mercy

Flavors: Flowers, Roasted Barley

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 15 sec

Is it a big selection of bulk teas in Wegmans? Can you buy any amount or there is a minimum ?

cookies

You can buy as much or as little as you want, I’ve gotten as little as $0.12 worth before. The selection is pretty decent. I’d guess around 50 in my local store. They stock Rishi, Ito-En, & Republic of Tea.

Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox Round #3 – Tea #24
We have some Wegman’s around here, so it’s nice to see kind of a “local” tea. This is actually very nice for a grocery store tea! White and green teas mixed with plenty of blueberries. There was around ten in the infuser. I think they also add blueberry flavoring since I doubt there would be that much blueberry flavoring even with all those blueberries. I only saw a few pieces of white tea, so this is mostly green tea here. I like it!

I find the Wegmans tea pretty excellent, especially the prices!

Oh, this is definitely not for me. Ugh, it’s actually kind of awful. Tastes like sweet roasted dirt, no thanks. Down the drain it goes.

I’m so disappointed that I passed over this tea for so long. I generally prefer Irish Breakfasts as I find English Breakfasts too weak so I didn’t even give this one a chance. Last week they were out of Irish so I picked this one up to tide me over until I could re-stock. And I’m happy to say it is absolutely lovely. I have to admit I think it’s mislabeled (in my store it is only labeled English Breakfast) as it really should be called Chinese Breakfast in my opinion. It’s chock full of sweet caramely slightly malty Yunnan goodness, but without any of the briskness I usually associate with English Breakfast blends. I heartily recommend this one if you are looking for a delicious Yunnan, not so much if you’re in the market for an English breakfast blend.

I believe this is Rishi’s China/Yunnan Breakfast.

Flavors: Caramel, Honey

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 7 OZ / 207 ML

I completely agree that it’s not really an English Breakfast. I love it though! Excellent tea, especially for the price.
