606 Tasting Notes
my entire blog is Colin and everything hurts
I brought a whole lot of teas with me back home, and a lot of them I jsut brought enough for one serving because I know mother doesn’t like the teas that I enjoy. This one is a bit… it’s very much on the green/spinachy side. Very very grassy. I don’t know if I like it.. like it’s good and I’m sure it’s a great tea! But not my taste.
I read my past reviews of this tea because I remember thinking that it was a decent chai. Not the best, but good to have when I want a quick chai.
This morning, however, I brewed it the way I like it and it didn’t turn out nice :/ It’s not strong and it has such a weird aftertaste. It tastes overly sweet for some reason, and I didn’t even put any sugar in it at all.
Not a good tea, happily a sipdown.
Dude. I’m going home for a week and I only brought 40 of my teas and the majority of them are sipdowns. I think I might be able to live? I really want other teas right now, but I left them all in my room at school. And I’ll be flying home on monday. I have about 5 teas with me right now, and another 35 in my luggage. I’m trying my best to make it work ahhaha MY LIFE.
But this is just a typical white peony. Like nothing to stand out, good or bad. Average tea that I like a whole lot :) Accidentally poured too hot water and some of the leaves definitely got scorched, but luckily it did nothing to the flavour :)
Quite possibly one of the best jasmine teas I have ever tasted. EVER.
This tea tastes delicate, but you don’t have to prepare it like a delicate tea. It doesn’t get bitter so easily, it can take harsh heat if I somehow forget that greens don’t get steeped in boiling water, and if I forget about it and leave it to steep for 10+ minutes, it still has a great flavour. It’s not temperamental and sassy like other jasmine teas and IT’S JUST SO FREAKIN GOOD. It resteeps like a boss and still has a great flavour even if I forget about it and leave it too cool.
Thank you MissB for sending me some, and I am for SURE going to get some more of this when I pay a visit to DAVIDs next week!
I sent a sachet of this over to MissB and NayLynn and it seems as though they both drank it today!
Dude. I only had about 2 sachets to last me two weeks and really wasn’t enough. This is my last sachet and YOU BET I’LL BE STOCKING UP ON THIS TEA WHEN I VISIT LUPICIA NEXT WEEK.
I’m probably not going to go to San Francisco till this time next year so… dang I have to stock up.
This is technically a sipdown, but I’m not going to bother taking out out of my cupboard since I know I’ll be getting some more within the next week :)
MissB is to blame when I land in a tea coma because she sent me a package that I totally wasn’t expecting and SHE’S JUST THE BEST OKAY.
And she ended up giving me te rest of her package of this?!??! Ahh I was already planning on turning this into a sipdown, but I guess not!
This tea is great. Light green tea with jasmine flavouring. Just be careful about the steep times and the temp of the water because I think this specific green tea base is a bit sassy with all of that and can turn bitter pretty quickly. But if brewed correctly, it’s great!!
And I’m just really excited because spring break is near and I seriously need to figure out which teas to bring with me. So I laid out all my teas and I finally organized it all! I used to organize it by company, but now I just have a massive tin full of sipdowns (there’s like 46 teas in it okay I AM SO HAPPY) and a section full of high caffeine teas, and a section of low caffeine teas. Yeah, I live in a wee tiny apartment so like… this is as much space as I can dedicate to all my teas. BUT SIPDOWNS WILL HAPPEN! I’m probably going to bring a butt ton of sipdowns with me to bring back home :)
SCREAMING BECAUSE I JUST FINISHED MY LAST FINAL AND I WENT TO CHECK MY MAIL BECAUSE I WAS EXPECTING A PACKAGE FROM MY PARENTS AND THEN I FOUND ANOTHER PACKAGE TAPED TO MY OTHER PACKAGE AND MISSB GOT ME TEA AND I’M ALL WHAT WOW OKAY THEN AHHHH I’M LITERALLY SITTING IN MY ROOM SCREAMING BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHICH TEAS TO BRING BACK HOME FOR SPRING BREAK
But yes. THIS IS A GREAT OOLONG AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH and when I get money, I’m totally going to buy more tea from Tea at Sea because that tea company is GREAT.
This is a sipdown, but the count doesn’t even matter because I FREAKIN JUST GOT LIKE 15 NEW TEAS FROM BONNY LIKE NO THIS IS GREAT BUT AHHH TEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEATEEEEAAAAAAAA
MY ROOMMATEA ARE MAKING FUN OF ME BECAUSE I’M FREAKING OUT BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE EATEATEATEATEATEAT AHAHHAHA OH MY GOSH WHAT IS THIS WHAT IS MY LIFE.
