428 Tasting Notes

Almost done reviewing the line of GoT inspired teas from Margaret’s Fine Imports. It has been a fun project.

Today’s tea is an oolong/green tea blend with hints of jasmine. When this delight is still hot, all you really taste was a smooth grassy like tea with the tiniest hints of jasmine. As it cooled, the jasmine really popped. I’m not much of a jasmine fan. I still enjoyed the cup I had.

Happy Friday all!

This tea just called to me. I love Baskin Robbins Bubble Gum ice cream and I was hoping this would have a similar taste. It didn’t but it made a great iced tea. Cold brew is the way to go to control the hibiscus from taking over the cup. I would love to serve this at a tea party for little girls. . .unfortunately I only have boys. Dang!

Flavors: Lemon, Strawberry

I can’t like this… it clearly says for kids and you didn’t follow the title.

But I’m a kid at heart!!

drank Thai Iced Tea by Sunrise Steepery
428 tasting notes

This is how I celebrated National Iced Tea yesterday. Pretty nice blend, just could use a bit of a sweet touch IMO. The tea had the correct spiced flavor profile but I had to add in cream to counteract and give it that Thai Iced Tea feel I was looking for. If you like really spiced un-sweet teas, this one is for you.

A floral tea dedicated to House Tyrell and the beautiful Margaret herself. Love that character. Even tho she is a bit manipulative, she isn’t so evil that you hate her. . just yet. I’m curious how her story line will unfold Sunday, if at all.

This tea was a nice white and green tea blend with a floral twist. Not being a floral fan, I did like this one. Maybe I like floral teas more than I thought. The best part of this tea was how nicely the white and green teas mingled together providing this refreshing and soothing taste.

Sipdown! But need to re-order more. This is my to-go iced tea in the morning for work. Love this one cold brewed. So glad it is offered all the time.

A wonderful lemon-orange earl grey dedicated to House Stark. Gotta Love GoT!

This earl grey was a treat because it wasn’t heavy on the bergamot oils like other earl greys I have had. There was also this nice lemon finish that I really enjoyed. All in all, another winner from Margaret’s Fine Imports.

OT but Nichole, did you order the new Graveyard Mist?!?

Nichole

I am right now! I backed the kickstarter campaign and asked for quite a bit of it there but I have to have more. That blend was one of my favs.

I know, I thought of you immediately when I received the email! …and of course I got some too! Ha ha. :)

This tea was simply beautiful and crazy delicious. I was completely surprised since the list of ingredients looked a bit crazy. The huge chrysanthemum flowers just gave this tea such a mellow feeling. I was worried this tea would be floral like, but was greeted with a fresh sweet savory like taste. Savory from the sage and basil I’m assuming.

drank Pick Me Up Chai by Herbal Whimsy
428 tasting notes

This was a fun version of a chai that I can’t say I’ve had before. A Chai with an Yerba Mate base instead of a green tea or black tea base. This had a black licorice taste to it, but it wasn’t overwhelming or unpleasant. I really do not like black licorice but I really enjoyed the flavor in this tea for some reason. I was actually surprised that I liked this blend as much as I did. The chai tasted fresh and the cinnamon had a sweet edge to it. This is a unique blend for sure.

I also started a new thread for Tuesdays. I’ve called it Tea Ware Tuesdays. Who couldn’t use more tea related items in their life?

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!
