639 Tasting Notes
Had some of this this morning as well!
I had a fill 6 hour day today. Class from 1-3, 3-5 and 5-7 so I had some of the Irish Cream Matcha with lunch, and I made some of this and put it into my timolino.
It lasted me through the first two classes and THANK YOU MATCHA FOR CAFFEINE. Dude. If I didn’t have my matcha, then I have no idea how I would have made it through today.
I had this in vanilla almond milk and I definitely like it a whole lot more than regular milk. Sooo yeah. Definitely enjoyed my matcha that sat in my timolino for hours compared to the one that I made fresh for lunch.
This is definitely going to be a routine thing for tuesdays from now on hahha
Got this tea from shmiracles and it’s so cute and adorable!
It was a wee little sachet and it smells really nice. I don’t know what’s in it, but it’s 9pm so I need my herbals this late at night.
It tastes… roasted. Like roasted rice and fruits? Oh it’s weird. It smells like a roasted Throat Coat from Traditional Medicinals.
So Throat Coat plus a smidge of spearmint? It’s an odd blend, but decent.
Had a very citrusy tea earlier, and now it’s time for a nice black tea!
Never had a persian tea before, but I picked this up at a cutie patootie Tea place that my aunt took me to and this was the one tea that I did not recognize! For a small coffee and tea place, they had quite a lot of different teas.
My first Persian tea and it’s quite nice!
The leaves are BEAUTIFUL. Nice and long and unravels nicely. It tastes like a typical black tea, but I don’t need to sweeten it or anything. It smells nice and bright. It had a very unique smell in the canister and that’s what first drew me it. I decided to get on oz of this tea to take home and I finally got to try it today! Bright dry smell, but definitely takes the qualities of a black tea when it steeps.
I feel like this is the kind of tea that resteeps very nicely. Forgot to add water to my kettle so right now it’s steeping in like 5 oz of water hahah. Ahh well. This is definitely one of my favourite purchases! Especially since it’s from an independent coffee and tea store, and it’s a tea that I’ve never had.
11/10 would recommend :)
Definitely going to pick more of this the next time I visit!!
DUDE THIS TEA.
It smells sooooo good from the package! What drew me in when looking at the site was the jasmine, but when I was able to smell it in store, WOW THE LEMON OKAY.
It was a bit overwhelming lemony smell, but hopefully all the other flavours come out when it’s done brewing.
Hmm.. I taste the lemon very much. Not so much the jasmine. A very refreshing cup though! I’ve never done a cold brew oolong, but there’s a first for everything! I’ll probably try it soon enough :)
I bought a whole bunch of teas a couple weeks ago and I haven’t been able to try a lot of them since I got the TTB!
Ahh well. I went ahead and tried the teas from the TTB and packed it all up and NOW I CAN TRY MY TEAS.
I put this into the TTB since I had plenty, and I haven’t even tried it yet wow. Ahh well :)
Flavors: Lemon Zest
Pretty sure vanilla almond milk is my new best friend for flavoured matchas!
I haven’t tried it with a straight matcha, but maybe monday I’ll try it out :)
My school schedule is perfect this quarter. Monday 2-4, Tuesday 1-5, Wednesday 2-6, and Thursday 1-3. IT’S FREAKIN PERFECT. I’ve decided that I’ll have matcha before class every morning so I won’t fall asleep in class hehe :))
Oh oh oh HELLO.
So I legit went to the store this morning because I wanted matcha and I had no milk, so I just got my usual fat free milk and I got vanilla almond milk as well because… Dude I was just craving that right now okay.
So I made this matcha with my vanilla almond milk and DANG THIS BRINGS OUT THE FLAVOURS SO MUCH 15/10 WOULD RECOMMEND
