98 Tasting Notes
It’s 9pm and I have an 8am class tomorrow. Done with midterms and I wanna sleeeeep.
Chamomile tonight! Oh dang. Haven’t had this in a while.
Not the biggest fan of chamomile, but it is a good sleepy time tea so chamomile it is!
Ori today because midterm is in an hour and I need some waking up to do.
I think I’ve figured this tea out! I just need a whole lotta milk because it’s a bit too nutty for me? It smells good, but the cream gets lost and I like that smell :)
Because I’m a nerd and I love Doctor Who.
A mug is a mug! This one is very special because… DISAPPEARING TARDIS OKAY.
I’m still learning how to use steepster and I FOUND OUT THAT THERE’S TEAWARE HERE AND NOT JUST TEA!?
Well. This is a thing that I have.
Being a lazy college student, it’s soooo hard drinking loose leaf tea. Having all these different equipment to make the perfect cuppa. I would boil water in my kettle, put leaves into a big mug and let it brew (since my daddy broke my teapot.. oops), then pour all that through a strainer into another mug. I’m lazy and that’s just too much work, too many things to wash so I kinda just gave up on loose leaf for a while and went with sachets.
THEN a while ago, I asked my mom to buy me some tea and she surprised me with this little beauty! Granted, it’s a bit too small for my liking, but it really does a great job. The tea hat keeps my tea warm as I study, the double-walls doesn’t burn my hands when I grab it, the infuser is big enough to let my leaves expand, and the best part? IT IS SO EASY TO USE AND CLEAN UP IS NOTHING.
Irish Breakfast at 7pm probably isn’t the smartest thing, buuut IT’S GOOD.
It smells SO good and tastes even better!
And I need to stay awake because of midterms and essays so I’ll be fine.
Bilbo Brew is definitely one of my favourites!
Because Lestrade is my faaaaave.
I needed some waking up to do and the last time I drank him, I couldn’t sleep till 3 or 4 in the morning. It’s noon right now so I’ll be fiiineeee.
I really like Lestrade. Smoky and musky gooood.
The last of The Hobbit blends that I have to try!
Okay. This one… I’m not a fan od Rooibos so that’s why it took me forever to try it?
Right out of the tin, it smells like medicine. Just a reeeeally strong super fruity super sweet scent and.. I’m not a fan.
Brewing.. and it still smells like medicine.
It’s a really red colour and it’s only been steeping for about a minute but the smell is still really strong. With the tea leaves out, it still smells like medicine. If you can’t tell, I’m not really enjoying this blend?
Drinking the tea and… ooh it tastes like… I’VE HAD THIS FLAVOUR BEFORE but I can’t remember what it tastes like. It’s like a sweet, candy-ish type of thing?
It tastes like a watered down kool-air or Hi-C… like those sugary fruit juices from waaaay long ago. But of course, this tastes much better.
Not the biggest fan of this blend, but definitely tastes much better than what I expected.
I don’t drink Rooibos. I don’t even know what the correct steep time or temperature is sooooo yeah.
You could reeeally smell the Bergamont in this one. I’ve only had Earl Grey once before and daang this was good :)
I really like the fact that this tea really does taste like Jasmine. I loooove jasmine so much and this is a really good tea! Delicate and airy and smooth.
Crying because Fili is going to run out just as quickly as Kili.
I reeeeally like chai, and this tea is sooo good! It’s like apple pie with yummy goodness.
