293 Tasting Notes
Dude. Every time I tell myself I’m just drinking one last tea for the night, that never happens!
I found a secret stash of this tea in the pantry (a gift from my mother to her sister, of course) and now I’m making tea for my cousin and I!
This is seriously up there in my list of favourite teas okay.
two minutes into sipping, I realize that this tea is probably over a couple of months old and definitely not fresh at all dang. Okay yeah kinda thankful that I made a cuppa for my cousin so I won’t have to drink it all.
For some reason, this tea turned out to be really ugly. Like the colour of it? It looked like mud and water and wow it was just really ugly. BUT IT’S STILL REALLY GOOD OKAY.
I only brought enough for myself and when I was brewing it, my cousins had friends over and they were like WHAT IS THAT. THAT SMELLS SO GOOD.
Yeah apparently not a lot of people know that loose leaf was a thing and they’re all super amazed. I’m just… Amazed that so many people drink bagged tea! Imma educate them :)
My cousin is amazed with tea and every time I come home to visit, I always make sure to brink a couple teas I’m willing to share ahha
I brought home Loki, Arthur and Jack Frost to share with her. Last night was Loki, tonight is Jack Frost! Yep. She’s taking after her cousin. I’m leaving her a couple sachets of my teas so she can drink them on her own time :)
Am laughing because I definitely don’t have enough of this tea to make a decent sipdown. The last time I had this, I saw the amount of leaves and it was between one big sipdown then, or two smaller ones and I went with the latter.
Just enough for like… 4 or 5 sips of tea tonight? Ahh well. This is a tea that I love so much! I love anything with Jasmine; that’s what got me into tea in the first place! Sad to see it go, but that just means that I can go try other types of Jasmine teas from other companies :)
It’s a tea and homework day with my cousins! Wuiy Ensemble. Part of that dragon sampler pack from Adagio I got like.. Actually I just checked my order history, and I got it less than 2 months ago! So not as long as I thought it was, but happily sipping down this nice, roasted oolong :)
This is the kind of tea that I would like to keep in my cupboard, but I’m not too upset with letting it go.
Dude I am actually kinda sorta happy that I’m sipping this down today! I definitely thought I had a enough for a cup left (I sent this to Flo and Sam not too long ago) but my eyes lied to me! What I thought was about a teaspoon of tea, turned out to be much smaller than that. So just a smaaaaall cup of tea today.
Perfectly fine though! I’m with my cousins and I brought a whole bunch of tea that needs to get sipped down so it’s all good :)
At my cousins place and after the discovery of their teapots, I bring a whole lot of tea with me now :)
Tonight I’m having Loki with my cousin because she asked me to make her tea and I still don’t know her sleep schedule and stuff so I figured that a black tea blend wouldn’t be that good of an idea since it’s almost 8 and she’s in high school and EVEN THOUGH I’M PROBABLY OVERTHINKING IT I WORRY ABOUT HER SO NO BLACK TEA THIS LATE AT NIGHT OKAY.
Today was definitely so much better than yesterday, but my headeache is killing me and so I figured this tea would help.
I know peppermint works for headaches and things, but I really am not feeling peppermint right now so I went for a citrus-y tea.
This definitely smells super nice from the package! It has nice and sweet citrus-y notes which seems perfect.
Steeping, the sweet kinda diminishes and now it’s turning into an overly citrus tea.
Drinking it, the citrus lingers and leaves a weird aftertaste for a while. I do’t like it all that much, but I feel like this would help my headache tonight so… yeah. Going to probably finish this cup, but I probably won’t buy it again.
Worst day ever on my gosh.
You know it’s a bad day when you don’t even feel like drinking tea at night because THERE’S NO TEA TO DRINK. Like seriously. I don’t feel like drinking any of the teas I have right now because I just feel nasty and gross and ugh no. I was dying in Philosophy today okay. After two presentations, I just wanted to run home and take a hot shower because my entire body was ACHING. I sat through the final two presentations and I was close to tears in the last one because my stomach was hurting so much, and my muscles felt tingly and weak and no.
But this one kinda just stood out because I wanted something minty so Fez it is. I’ve been saving it because it’s one of my favourites and now I am all out of it :(
Yeah. Today was just a bad day.
