606 Tasting Notes
Had a butt ton of this tea yesterday.
So I was so used to buying in grams. Like on the DAVIDs site, it’s like in 50g or 100g bags and stuff so I walked into DAVIDs asking for 25g of tea and the lady who was helping me, Jillian, was like.. umm How much is that in ounces? So I was like I DON’T EVEN KNOW.
So I definitely spent a LOT at DAVIDs. I took my cousin with me and we managed to get two free Perfect Infusers, and a free tin because I bought 4oz. of this tea.
Yeah. Online it says to get 100g and get a free tin, BUT THAT’S CANADA. AMERICA NEEDS 4OZ.
But seriously, No one can have too much peppermint. Pretty much the only herbal tea that I enjoy straight. Not blended with any other tea, no sweeteners whatsoever.
A wonderful peppermint tea :)
Good matcha! Happy to have some straight, unflavoured matcha in my cupboard :) And I have one of those fancy electic whisk milk frother things now because I bought one for like $2 years ago and left at home ahha. But I have one now and it definitely made life much easier!
Definitely a nice matcha :)
Oh gosh. I have so many teas to backlog from yesterday.
I finally had that massive tea day yesterday. Spent well over $100 of tea at Lupicia and DAVIDs because when else am I going to be able to do that? Ahh well, I have a butt ton of tea now, and I was able to get free tea from DAVIDs because the lady who was helping me was like super nice and ahhh I had a great day yesterday :)
So pretty much, My cousin took her driver’s test yesterday AND SHE PASSED! So we celebrated at Julie’s with breakfast and tea. I shared a pot of their Lapsang and it was actually pretty good! I’m actuallly starting to like Lapsang now. Adagio’s Lapsang is a bit.. weird. But the others that I’ve tried are nice :)
Lapsang was prepared in store. Cutest little tea place ever and I’m definitely going back :)
Oh my gosh I’m so scared to burn this tea okay. Like I always have bad luck with white teas because I’m afraid that the water would be too hot and I’d see the scorch marks on the leaves and usually when that happens, I just brush it off, but I’ve been wanting to try this tea for the longest time and I got a wonderful sample from MissB but the thing is, I’ve only got one cup of this and I really don’t wanna ruin it!
Okay. Here it goes. My kettle has been sitting for a good five minutes now so hopefully that’s enough time?
Dude. It smells so good! Not overkill on the watermelon, which is great. It smells so nice and bright and wonderful. MissB highly recommended me to sweeten it so when it’s done steeping, I’ve got some agave right next to me and I’ll just play around a bit :)
Hmm.. It tastes more like warm water with a bit of fragrance. I think my water was a bit too cool! Ahh well, looks like I’ll just have to make a purchase with Butiki sometime in the future and grab some of this :) It is a wonderful tea, but I know I definitely didn’t make it correctly on the first try. Maybe hotter and less water, or hotter water, more leaves. Gotta remember that for next time!
Excitement is in the air because I’m seeing my friends from high school for the first time in MONTHS. AHH I AM SO EXCITED.
And with that, I accidentally brewed this for far too long and now it’s turned bitter :(
Doing whatever it takes to get a decent cuppa, but nothing’s working :/ Well, at least I have a couple cold brews in the fridge that I can drink during breakfast if I completely give up on Thor :)
Mother is making me drink the rest of this tea so I have this and one more sachet to go!
Seriously. Whenever I’m home, my job is to drink all of my mother’s old teas so she can go out and buy more.
This tea legit smells like nice sweet green apples! Like almost as sweet as those caramel apple lollipops I’d always get a ton of during Halloween. It’s a lovely green tea, with a lovely apple flavour :)
I feel like because this tea is fairly old, its flavour isn’t that good. Aww what a shame; this is one of my favourites! It had a nice bright apple-y flavour when I had it last year, but it’s a bit musky now. No more sweet candy apple taste, but a stale apple pie?
I’ll probably throw the last sachet of this into a cold-brew to drink in the morning :)
Black tea totally isn’t the kind of tea to drink when you’re getting your teeth cleaned in an hour ahha
I got this from MissB a couple weeks ago when she was selling off some mystery packs! A decent ceylon :) I can’t say it’s my favourite, but I definitely don’t hate it. I prefer straight greens or flavored blacks, but this is good! A nice mellow tea to drink when all I’ve been doing all day was… watching Netflix ahha
Oh my gosh. I’m watching the tea party episode of Sofia the First AND IS THAT TIM GUNN THAT I HEAR!??!?!
Okay but this tea. Gift from a friend. Cold brew and it’s good! It is a smidge sour, but drinkable :)
AND I’M GUNNA DIE BECAUSE THE TEAPOT AND TEACUP THEY USED WAS CHIP AND MRS. POTTS AWW THIS SHOW IS THE CUTEST
Reunited with my love ♥ ♥
I accidentally made it a bit watered down this time, but it’s still good! Not as much flavour as I would like, but still a lovely tea :)
Flight back home got delayed so I arrived almost an hour after scheduled, but it’s all good since I’m finally home! Parents definitely miss me hehe. I make the home much more lively :))
I got home and took the fruits out of the fruit basked and then laid out all the tea that I brought home with me and gave some to mother. Then I went into her tea stash and looked for teas that I was able to take from her :) So now I have more teas from Lupicia and Teavana!
And mother is making me buy her tea when I go out shopping friday! SHE’S GIVING ME MONEY YEEESSSS.
Oh my gosh it’s just SO good to be back home!!
