474 Tasting Notes

Sipdown #27- Still loving this one. Sweet floral almost peach candy like flavor. One I’d like to have more of one day.

Some of their puerhs are getting good as well.

Nichole

I have one of them. I’m so intimidated still by puerhs. I feel like I need training on how to drink those.

Rich, creamy, coconut matcha with almond milk. Is there a better way to start your morning off? Sipdown #28!

It always sounds good when you throw in coconut and almond. Then I remember that it’s still matcha and I’ve only ever had one I liked and it had tons of sugar and spices as well as milk. :)

I am loving this one. Such a nice blend of creamy sweet floral goodness! I wish I had more of it. Thanks Daylon for the sample. So good and helping me thru the afternoon!

Sipdown #24!

TeaNTees

You’re doing so well Nichole! :)

Marzipan

Can I count all of the teas that I sold as sip downs? :D

TeaNTees

If it was all that you had remaining of each specific tea then I say yes!

Nichole

Aww, Thanks my dear! 24 in a week (ish) isn’t too bad.

& yes Marzi- I think you can!

Terri HarpLady

Rocking the sip downs!!
Samples definitely count, and BTW, samples from friends count as the bulk of my Sipdown Extravaganzas.

Daylon R Thomas

I have a little more that I could send if you like.

Nichole

Oh. . Daylon I may need you to send that to me here in a bit. . .

Daylon R Thomas

Okay, will do. I’m going to see what else I can throw in because the amount I have is probably three light cups worth at most.

Nichole

No worries. Take your Time. I’ll start working on another box for you too.

Liquid Proust

I went to go get some to split for you two… but then I realized that it’s the one and only tea I’ve sold out it. That shows how aware I am :/

Nichole

I actually went to your site to buy more and noticed that. It’s alright. I still have more of your tea I need to drink up first. Then I need to get that French Toast one.

drank New Moon by AstroloTeas

I love this company and loved this tea. Sweet green tea love with hints of a roasted flavor. So good! I’ve never had a tea with meadowsweet flowers in it. I really enjoyed this one.

I think my taste buds might still be off from my sinus infection because I had a bit of a weird experience with this tea. But not in a bad way.

Brewed hot, this tea was more of a heavy roasted oolong cantaloupe tea with subtle hints of cucumber here and there in the background.

Brewed as an iced tea, I got more of the cucumber flavor with a sweetness that could be considered melon like at the end of each sip and the roasted oolong flavor throughout. It reminded me of water with cucumber slices added in.

I really like both ways, I just couldn’t seem to get both flavors in the same cuppa. But oh my did it ever smell like cucumber/cantaloupe. Smelt amazing!

This sounds tasty. I wish I liked oolong teas.

Anybody else try this one? I’m curious on what the flavor is. . Real curious.

This was a nice berry flavored green tea-strawberry to be more precise. I really liked it but only got the berry flavor because of this ick sinus issue I have going on right now that is making everything taste muted.

Flavors aren’t popping right now. Not sure what creative concoction he created for this one. Sad. I should have waited to try this but I needed a tea that wouldn’t let me down last night and so far I haven’t been let down by any of Liquid Proust’s offerings.

Sipdown #17!

It might be raspberry dragonfruit infused hibiscus with a confetti like tea mixture…

Nichole

Ahh- That would make sense. . . .

apieceofquiche

Whoa whoa whoa – “raspberry dragonfruit infused hibiscus with a confetti like tea mixture…” sounds delicious.

I love Astrolo Teas. They are fresh and unique in each and every cuppa.

What I also love is that you can pick whether or not you want the tea as a caffeinated tea or decaf. I picked caffeinated version so there was a gentle black tea base that was so perfectly mixed in to the blend.

This tea was sweet and floral all at the same time. Beautiful and light and fluffy. The description of the tea on the site compares the tea to cotton candy and I can totally see it. This will be a re order one of these days.

Daylon R Thomas

I might have to try that.

Had this yummy tea this morning. It was pretty good. I liked how it was light on the earl grey flavor with a nice kick of floral goodness. Loved starting my morning with this one.

Sipdown #12. . Woot! Woot!

Oh where to begin. Its been a crazy couple years. My life has completely been turned upside down but I’m very happy where I landed. I’m finally in a great place-Living with an amazing guy and his hilarious yet full of attitude twin teenage boys, and my two adorable kiddos in Central Illinois and there is no other place I’d want to be.

Now on to the tea: I love all kinds. I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos but I love green rooibos. Beyond that, I’ll try everything once or twice to make sure I didn’t bumble up the steepings. If you are interested in something from me, just holler at me. I’m always up for trying new tea blends or sharing with others!
