298 Tasting Notes
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.
Wheee! Hello sipdown :)
On my way to philosophy and all I have to do is show up to get double the attendance points since it’s presentations for the next three weeks or so.
Dude. My roommate started watching this show called Star Crossed and OH MY GOSH THIS SHOW. EVERYONE WATCH THIS SHOW IT’S SO GOOD OKAY WOW SOMETHING EPIC JUST HAPPENED AND WHAT.
AND APPARENTLY IT JUST STARTED TWO DAYS AGO AND NOW I HAVE TO WAIT.
So I actually brought two teas with me to class today. One iced, and one hot.. yeah people looked at me funny. They were wondering why I had two travel mugs with me!
Ahh well. My Fruit Sangria was in my Klean Kanteen and my Jack Frost was in my timolino :)
Jack Frost is good. 11/10 would recommend.
I actually brewed this overnight!
It smelled super fruity and tart and figured that it wouldn’t taste super great as a hot tea, so into the fridge it went!
Brewed straight into my thermos, added a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down, and off to class I went!
Nice and tart. A bit watered down though. But thermos was a bit… large so I’ll remember that next time :)
This actually turned out to be a surprise sipdown! (120)
A friend of mine piced up my roommate at an event and she just stayed with us and wanted to take home some tea. She ended up going home with some Super Ginger and Thranduil, and I had about 7 grams of this left so I just decided to do the entire package.
This is actually the first time I had this!
It’s nice and spicy. And.. yeah. That’s about it! It’s a nice mellow chai sooooo yeah.
I got the gourmet sips pack from adagio so it’d be easier for me to drink tea in class. Boiled water and put it into my timolino and threw it into my backpack. Once I got into class, the water was still hot and I threw the tea into my timolino and just waited.
I looked up and I saw my group members just staring at me and Ashley just said “She really likes tea”
Sooo yeah. That’s how my morning went.
This tea is a decent tea. Not the absolute best. It’s like… It’s tea. A bit grassier than what I expected, but I got the gourmet sips just for this reason. A collection of decent teas just to take with me so I won’t have to rush as much in the mornings.
