395 Tasting Notes
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.
Tea right when I woke up this morning to make up for my lack of tea the past two days!
First time I had this tea, thank to MissB!
I actually made matcha without laughing my butt off this time ahaha. Last time, I had no idea what the heck I was doing. But this time, I seemed like I knew what I was doing :) I think I found the perfect cup to make my matcha in. It has a pretty wide mouth, and not as tall as my mugs. That’ll probably be my matcha cup since I hate drinking tea out of it because it’s a really thin glass and it just gets super hot when I use boiling water and whatnot.
BUT THIS TEA. Good? I think? Tasted like matcha, can’t really get the Irish Cream out of it, but it’s super good nonetheless :)
I haven’t been to Disneyland since last year, and I haven’t been on Disney property since I left the Program. AHHH YESTERDAY WAS GREAT.
