406 Tasting Notes
Another tea I shouldn’t be drinking while I’m sick, as I am only able to detect some spices, the same way I was with the Carrot Cake tea, but I think that this one has a bit of a thicker mouthfeel to it. But right now my tongue is all coated and my sense of taste is greatly reduced…
I can only imagine how delightful this will be when I’m better. Trying not to drink all my Butiki while I’m sick, but…it calls to me. So I obey every now and again, and logically resist the urge the rest of the time.
Sipdown…used the last of the tea in the foil packet from OMGsrsly this morning…probably overleafed this one this morning, but then there wouldn’t have been enough for another cup, I don’t think, so there’d be a cup that was underleafed.
Maybe it’s me sick, or maybe it’s my preparation, but this one isn’t especially anything to me today. Maybe if I did it gongfu style, I’d appreciate it more, but I lack the equipment right now.
Sick tea of the evening….another one that was strong enough in some flavour to pick up. The strong coffee/burnt sugar notes came through, and it was a soothing and smooth brew. Sadly, it’s a sipdown, so I’ll have to get more again sometime. It’s tasty.
Tea was perfect for today…being sick, I really appreciated the strong mint in this one, as it was both soothing to my throat and sinuses, but also something I could taste properly due to how strong the mint is.
I probably shouldn’t rate this one just yet, seeing as I’m sick and all, and fairly certain I’m sure I am not getting the full taste and subtleties of this tea. I can perceive a nice bit of spice, and a smooth base, but that’s about it right now. Not to say it is bad, because it is good, but my buds are off from being sick, and I’m just not getting much from the tea now. But I have a whole ounce (yay!) to devour, and I can tell from what I can taste now with reduced taste buds that I will really like this one when I can taste it properly. :)
Why oh why does this one have LICORICE in it? Blech! Dumped it in the sink after the first few sips. I only got 12g of this, so I’m not sure whether to return/exchange or to just give away…Another one bites the dust. TWO FAILS so far. Maybe Spiced Fig won’t disappoint.
Ummm, glad I only got 12g of this one. It smells deliciously divine, but there is a strange artificial almost medicinal taste to it. It’s similar to Red Velvet Cake, but also, I think the cherry in this added to that is what is giving a medicinal taste.
I have a small amount that I will play with at home, as this tasting is based on a TTG from the store, and it may be a different experience at home for me.
But…so far a fail.
Sipdown…not my favourite chocolate orange tea…this steep in particular seems very weak, to the point I can barely taste the chocolate, and the orange might be a figment of my imagination. I think this one comes from sil
Sipdown…I like this tea but it’s subtle, and I do want to play around with more again, sometime in the future.
Sipdown of this today…I know it’s coming back. It’s a winter staple for me.
