284 Tasting Notes
Legit going to have a sipdown party sometime soon because I only have one sachet of this left and I have like another 15 teas in my sipdown pile and I’l right at 100 teas and I’m expecting packages soon! I would absolutely LOVE it if I’m able to get down to like the low 90’s before all my packages come in the mail.
But this tea. My sister bought me a box for my “Congrats on getting into the DCP!” present, and I’ve finished that off. But then, when I came home, she forgot that she bought me this tea and bought me another box as a birthday present!
I’m not the biggest fan of this tea, but I just drink it because it’s tea and there’s no caffeine. Seriously. Every time I drink it I like add lemon or honey or have it plain or any variation but.. dude it just never works out.
Definitely not my favourite tea, but it was a present so I feel like I should drink it all. It’s a good “I don’t know what tea to drink so I’ll just drink this tea so it’s one sachet closer to a sipdown” tea hahah.
Dang. This tea is just so weird okay.
Way past christmas wow.
Dude. This tea just keeps getting lost because I keep it in a little container actually in my bookshelf, not on top of the shelf with the rest of my teas! Ahh well. I rated this tea a 60 way long ago because I never really liked chocolate teas. But now I’ve tried plenty of chocolate and dessert teas soooo I’m sure I’m going to like this tea :)
Definitely running low on my Lupicia stash! I’m like… dude the only thing that’s keeping me alive these final weeks of school is the fact that I have a massive tea shopping spree planned near the end of this month. I cannot wait to go back to San Francisco! I haven’t been there since JULY and that was my last massive shopping spree. You know, now that I think of it, the last time I was in the city was to stock up on teas to bring with me to celebrate going to Orlando for the DCP. And soon, I’ll be going back to the city for the EXACT same reason!
Now that I’ve done enough rambling and I’ve let my tea steep for long enough, this tea is a pretty decent cup! Still chocolatey and sweet and hints of apricot. Definitely a tea that I’ll have to be craving for.
I still have two sachets of this left and I don’t want it to get too old sooo I’ll plan on drinking the last of it before I head out for my shopping spree!
I did find myself adding a bit of milk to it since it was on the sweet side.
Dude. Green tea is freakin weird, man.
See, the only green tea that I really enjoy is the Jasmine ones.
I kinda sorta just group sencha and matcha and dragonwell and those green dragon pearls from Adagio into one massive category in my brain. They all taste and look the same to me! Green… like very green in colour and taste.
This particular tea though turned out to be a bit bitter.
I’ve got a massive headache and I usually drink peppermint tea to soothe headaches buuut I left the last of it for my roommate! So I’ve got me some spearmint which I will have now because MINT.
This is actually the first time I’ve had this tea on its own and wow it tastes weird okay. Not like the spearmint that I know…
Last time I made this tea was about a week ago and I was freaking out because I didn’t want to pee during my phone interview.
Now I’m drinking it because I’m celebrating a successful week. From DCP acceptance to finally finishing that 40 page marketing plan and finishing all the presentations that I have! Oh I am so happy to be done!
Today has seriously been so busy I did not have time to drink tea! It’s just past 11 and I’m drinking my first, and probably last cup of the day.
Well, if I’m drinking just one cup, better make it a good one!
Sad to look into my pouch and see only 2 more sachets left. Ahh well, i’ll be going to the city in a couple weeks and I can replenish :)
Definitely need to get my butt to start working on my presentation because I’m only about 25% of the way there and it’s a 15 minute presentation tomorrow morning and I’m gunna freakin diiiieeeeeeeeeee
(this tea is great okay I love it a ton)
Shoot. I’ve been so caught up with working on my presentation, I forgot I had class at 6!
Well, I’ve just made myself some dinner and brewed some of this tea and poured it inmy my timolino :)
I’ll probably leave for class a bit earlier than usual so I can work on my presentation before class starts :)
and I definitely need to up the tea to water ratio. Right now it’s 3g to 12oz but.. yeah this tastes a smidge watered down. And yes yes, I know that typically it’s 3g to 8oz but I do like my teas with a 1 to 4 ratio :)
I LOVE Tea at Sea’s teas! The two samples that they gave me are like.. really nice quality.
Tea leaves dry are rolled up so tight, and I actually brew my tea in a mason jar (because I’m a cheapo college student and it has the oz. markings already so I know how much water to put in for however much my tea weighs) and THE LEAVES JUST EXPAND SO BIG AND IT’S SO FREAKIN GORGEOUS AND I LOVE IT WHEN YOU SEE NICE AND BIG FULL LEAF TEAS IT’S SO PRETTY. I SEE THAT THE TEAS TAKE UP LIKE NO SPACE AT ALL IN THE MASON JAR, I DO WORK AND MY TIMER DINGS, AND THEN I LOOK UP AND BAM THE LEAVES HAVE EXPANDED AND ALL YOU SEE ARE THE LEAVES EVERYWHERE IT’S GREAT.
This is a sipdown, and I’m partial for it to go. Like it’s a really great quality tea, I’m just not so big on the flavour? It tastes like.. it has a hint of seaweed so I don’t know if I like it all that much. I know that I absolutely love the Black Oolong so when I finally finish off that tea sample, I’ll be quite sad.
So I just found out that one of my good friends got accepted into some grad Philisophy program in the University of St. Andrews and I AM SO EXCITED FOR HIM!!!
Ash is off to grad school, I’m off to Disney again, I know Flo is going to a fancy schmancy college in Canada and Samira is going to Germany and I have no idea where Sher and Rey are going but AHH I LOVE MY FRIENDS AND WE’RE ALL DOING SOMETHING WITH OUR LIVES OTHER THAN SIT AROUND AND SKYPE ALL THE TIME.
I had this tea this morning! I brought it with me to class and it was great. Looove my Jasmine teas :) I actually forgot I had this since I keep a whole bunch of teabags in this fancy teabag box thing that my sister gave me. It’s cute! But it only holds teabags. I’ve got my jasmine and my friends were wondering what was smelling so good haha.
But I finished the the tea after our presentation, and I figured that there’s still flavour in the leaves so I’m just doing my best to get every bit of flavour out of this becauseee I only have two more bags of this and that’s it for my jasmine teas. Gotta make these last couple of bags last me the next 2-3 weeks because that’s the next time I can actually GO OUT AND SMELL AND BUY TEAS instead of buying it all online :))
