560 Tasting Notes
Had this this morning and it’s… okay?
It was watered down at first, left the leaves in, and it turned sour so I don’t know.
I’ll like.. write a proper note in the future when I can actually think okay
My brain is freakin fried because that FREAKIN MIDTERM WAS BRUTAL AND I NEVER WANNA SEE IT AGAIN.
I studied so hard.
Reviewed it over the weekend and a couple days leading up to it, 5 hours straight yesterday, and 2.5 hours straight today. I thought I was confident but I took it and now I wanna cry because it was so hard. And it’s not just me, it was the entire class as well! Thought I was going to get an A, but nope. Now I feel like I deserve a C or a D. ughasdj;aksdfkl;sadf FREAKIN FINANCE.
So I’m watching Skins and there was this song that Jal played that I LOVE so much! And I knew it was in Disney’s Fantasia 2000 and I really needed to listen to that song okay.
Rhapsody in Blue aww yiss
Also, this tea because Sil drank it a couple hours back and it was the first tea on my dash at the time, and it just sounded so good. Last time I had it, I had it with a bit of sugar and milk, but you know, I actually like it plain! As with all my other teas :)
I love coffee. I managed to get a free cup today in class cuz this girl next to me just gave it to me! They messed up on her drink and she was like “Take it. I don’t want it to go to waste!” and I was like suuure thing :)
So yes. Coffee this morning, and a coffee-like tea //side note. The train just passed by and it was honking with my music wow that was weird. ANYWAYS YES. A COFFEE-LIKE TEA TO END THE DAY! It’s really good. I’m surprised that a tea this dark and roasty toasty tasting is caffeine-free! Definitely a great tea :)
I don’t know how anyone could possibly make this tea in a strainer. Either like DAVIDs steeper, or strainer ball stuff, or a basic tea strainer. I feel like it’d be a bit of a goopy mess. I always break out my DAVIDs cutie patootie filters whenever I drink this tea but I couldn’t find them for some reason :/ so a basic finum tea filter will have to do tonight eheh :)
yes. ramblings. whenever it’s midterms/finals season (right now it’s death with midterms and papers and presentations and finals just around the corner), my tasting notes are either super short, or detailed with pointless life updates so I won’t study. Ugh my massive finance midterm is tomorrow and I’m so lost! Calculations are a pain in the butt right now :/
On the bright side, I did get a 96 on my first midterm! So if I completely bomb the one tomorrow, I should still be in the clear, right?
Flavors: Caramel, Honey, Roasted Barley
Oh my gosh.
I like it!
Thank you VariaTEA for sending me a sample of this tea! It’s nice and tastes like a fluffy lemon cake :) It is lime chiffon so.. well, I taste the brightness and chiffon is a type of cake so close enough! I feel like this tea, if you turn it into cake form, is the perfect thing to eat with tea. Can I like infuse this with milk, and use the Lime Chiffon milk to make lime chiffon tea cakes? Dude. That sounds great.
Anyways, this tea is good! Nice and sweet, and it is blended quite nicely! Oohhh this is just really nice and a definite must when I order from Della Terra!
Flavors: Lemon Zest
So today has been a very blech day and I really wanted something sweet and nice for dessert, so a chocolate tea it is! And my stomach has been off all day long so I need some peppermint tonight as well. It was between this and Butiki’s Peppermint Patty, but in the end, this tea won because I wanted the deep, robust rooibos :)
A big thank you to VariaTEA for sending this my way!
A great rooibos tea with peppermint and chocolate to soothe my stomach :)
Currently dying from midterms and finals prep ugh :/
Writing a paper for my Human Resources class and I decided to write it on Disney! Of course. And my Mike Wazowski mug is keeping me company :) And I’m also listening to Disney Area Music as I write my paper so… I start in about 3 weeks okay, I’m allowed to be excited!!
My roommate is gone for tonight and I’m taking advantage by playing the best music you’ll ever find on YouTube! She used to work at Carthay and would never let me play their music loop ahha
((also I just found out that I need a 90 on my final to maintain my A in my hotel class, but I can get as low as a 75 to go down to an A- what the heck))
I great big ol thank you to MissB for sending this tea my way!
I believe I had the same tea, but summer harvest, a couple weeks or months ago.
I don’t think my palette is.. advanced enough to know the difference between summer and autumn harvest though
But this tea is nice! It’s very similar to the other one. Very vegetal and very green. I don’t think I’ve had that many straight green teas before, and they’re okay. It’s definitely going to get some getting used to. Tastes like liquified sweet spinach ahha but it’s totally fine since that’s how it’s supposed to taste like! Gotta work my tastebuds up to this kind of very green tea :)
I’ve seen so many good stuff about this tea on my dash (if that’s what it’s called? Dash or feed or… I don’t even know) and it got me excited to try this tea! It’s… okay. It had a really nice dry leaf smell, but its brightness got a bit.. murky and dull in a way? I like how there’s little bunny grahams in here hehe, so that’s probably what gave this tea a bit of umph, but not enough to go head over heels for.
It’s good, but not great. Thanks NayLynn for the chance to try it, and giving me enough for a few cups, but I don’t think this is a tea I’ll go out and purchase.
Mmmm thank you tons, Laurent from Nina’s for sending me a sample of this tea!
It’s not as green as the photo suggests, but it does give off a nice and pleasant peach aroma. Reminds me a bit of the peach rings that I used to love so much :)
Ooh. I think my water was a smidge too hot and it’s right on the edge of being bitter, but it’s really nice! I makes a nice, straight cup :) The peach is definitely there, and it’s not as sugary as the peach rings, but still has the nice bright summer fruit flavour :)
I really like this tea! Definitely a nice oolong with a nice fruity flavour. Peach is definitely present, and I’m also getting bits of apricot which is nice
((this is also a sipdown so hooray for drinking all the tea!!))
Flavors: Apricot, Peach
Smelled the sampaguita as I was walking out of my aunt’s house, driving back to school, and figured I needed a jasmine tea the second I arrived at my apartment!
I love love LOVE the Butterfly Jasmine from DAVIDs.
This one is good! Not as great as the Butterfly, but still oh so very nice and smooth. The perfume isn’t super strong and the tea didn’t get bitter, unlike their Silk Dragon Jasmine and Angel of Decadence from Beastly Beverages.
The Butterfly Jasmine still wins for best jasmine tea ever, but this one and Harney’s jasmine pearls go hand in hand :)
I honestly don’t know if the shape of the leaves so anything to its taste? But like the loose leaf jasmines take on more of a bitter and stronger taste, while the rolled pearls and butterflies are a bit lighter, which I love a whole lot more.
