628 Tasting Notes
Teeny Tiny TTB!!
Ahhh I got the box today and it’s such a teeny little box but ALL THE TEAS INSIDE WOW THERE’S SO MANY.
I wanna try them all but there’s a TON and I know I won’t be able to.
I’m weighing out my tea. Using the smallest teacup I have, just a wee gram of each tea just to taste it and I’m taking what I want, and replacing it with one of my own.
First tea out of the box that I tried was this! Sadly, a lot of the teas smell similar since it’s such a teeny little thing, so I couldn’t really smell this tea, but steeping it, it smells so much nicer than the spice that I was getting earlier. A nice, bright oolong, and it tastes great as well. Not too strong, not too weak. A lovely tea and one I’ll definitely keep for myself hehe :)
Oh darn. This definitely got bitter :( I was talking to my roommate about spring break shenanigans and I got distracted and BITTERNESS UGH.
But with enough tampering with sugar and water and milk and things, I have an *okay cup.
It’s in my timolino now and I’ll be heading off to my first class of the quarter soon :)
So I flew an hour from NorCal to SoCal and I wanted to drink tea but I left my sachets with my mum back home so I figured that these little beauties would be great to drink on the plane :)
Yep. I asked for a cup of hot water and dropped these little bad boys in :)
It was actually really good! I had a great cup, but it definitely started getting bitter by the end of the cup. Not the best way to drink tea, but good enough who where I was at. I’ll be trying these sometime this week, this time actually taking time to make the right cuppa :)
So many teas to log and this should be the last of them!
I’m enjoying this tea along with my Oh Canada. Both were cold brewed overnight and both were a success.
Oh Canada definitely has more of a… rustic/darker taste, while this one is so very BRIGHT.
This one works great as a hot or cold tea so I’m enjoying myself very much. It did turn a bit sour, but nothing a small pinch of sugar couldn’t fix :)
Made this tea, threw into my Timolino with a drop or two of agave and drove 2 hours to Sonoma to visit my sister. Finally got to her apartment and started drinking my Blueberry Jam and it’s still nice and hot and beautiful! I was so happy when I weighed my tea and realized I had enough for two more cups, so the next cup would be a sipdown :(
I had my sister try this tea and she liked it! And she got mad because I never told her that it was hot and she spilled on herself ahhah. Well, I did tell her that the timolinos keep these teas freakin hot all the time! Just because it’s been sitting there for nearly 3 hours doesn’t mean that it’s gone ice cold :)
Had some of this before bed last night!
A nice and bright bedtime tea :)
I loved it :) Mother had peppermint and my dad wanted to try both teas. He ended up liking both of them and loved how they were very different tastes.
I’m leaving a bit of this with my mom, along with a lot of other DAVIDs.
I bought the burgandy carry mug for my sister and they really like it! They might be placing an order online. One carry mug for each of them and I think they might be buying me tea :))
Had this yesterday and prepared it the usual way I make my matcha, and my milk frother died right in the middle of making my matcha latte :( Ahh well, that’s what you get for using a $2 milk frother from IKEA bought nearly 5 years ago ahha.
But this was.. okay? I didn’t taste anything and I realized this morning that I was supposed to put 2 tsp, not my usual 1/2 tsp. When I read the back of the package, I was like.. isn’t that a bit much? But it is an “au lait mix” or whatever so maybe it’s just special ahha
Definitely going to try this with the intended amount of matcha sometime later on this week :)
I’ve been wanting to try this tea for the longest time because SPARKLES AHHHH
When I smelled this in store, it definitely smelled like a tea I would not enjoy. I don’t like super spicy teas? And the orange peel was a bit off-putting, but dude. Sparkles. So I just had to get it ahah.
I brewed this like SUPER quickly. Like I only brewed it for about 3 minutes, and it went straight into my Timolino with a dash of agave and I was out the door. I didn’t even have time to taste it on its own! But it ended up okay :) Sad that it was super rushed, but I managed to finish it all and enjoy my time. Definitely going to try this tea sometime this week, and this time it won’t be rushed ahha
In other news, the reason why I was rushed is because my cousins and I were almost late for the movie! It started at 4:05, and I started brewing my tea at like 3:40. 10 minutes to boil water and steep your tea really isn’t enough time. My dad literally rushed to the theater ahha. But we were sat up right at the front, but it was all good since I had my tea with me :)
Divergent is a good movie! I was kinda bitter about it because I broke my book/movie rule. This is the first time in years that I watched a movie first before reading the book. Ahh well, I have the book! I just haven’t found the time to read it :/ The quarter is starting so I’ll read as much as I can before I drown in all my tests and papers.
