99 Tasting Notes
First tea I’ve tried from the “sweet indulgence” sampler set. OMG. This one is going on the wish list for sure. It smells amazing! Creamy coconut with the fruity sweetness, I’m in heaven. The taste is smooth and not too sweet. I just can’t get enough of the scent though! Someone make this into a perfume asap please! If anyone is into perfume and can recommend something to remind me of this, I would love you forever <3
Reminiscent of caramel corn. It has a buttery, sweet kind of flavor to it. I didn’t know if I would like this one or not. After I ordered I was like why did I order this one? What if it’s terrible!? omg O.o however, I can now say I’m totally relieved because this was entirely enjoyable. Not something I will reach for constantly, but I’m glad I have it in my stash.
holy eucalyptus! This one came in as one of the free samples with my order (my first order with David’s! SO exciting!) I had been agonizing over which tea I wanted to try first, and I’m glad I went with this one.
I just haven’t been feeling quite right the past couple of days. My sleeping pattern is off, and it has been an emotionally overwhelming past couple of days. I’m switching gears from planning on moving out of state for grad school, to now hoping for a campus placement close to home for a different grad school.
So today when I finally made it out of bed, I made myself the sample of this tea making a whole pot in my small teapot before getting to all my paperwork. I do get a bit of orange, and a ton of eucalyptus. I am feeling a bit better, in that I’m still feeling crappy but not quite as much kind of way. Maybe if I try to relax in a bath with some eucalyptus spearmint bubble bath, that might help.
I caved and bought more tea today as a little treat to myself. I wasn’t planning on it originally, however, it’s totally justifiable because I received another medical school acceptance! YAY!!! It’s nice to be able to have the pick of my top choices for schools.
As for the tea, apparently this one has been “reformulated/reblended” Ingredients:Apple pieces, cinnamon, coconut chips, beetroot pieces, artificial flavoring. No almonds lol, but I’m guessing a nice dash of almond flavor? I had tried this one way back at the beginning of autumn, and had really been craving it. When I went back in they were all sold out so I had ended up getting the cococaramel sea salt. NO REGRETS! mwuahahaha. This one tastes like a cinnamony apple, and I actually think I might try blending those two to make it more of a caramel apple kind of taste. mmmm
Had this one last night. This was warm, slightly spiced, and comforting, which, I really needed. I’ve been getting a lot of paperwork together for school and it’s been driving me crazy! I’m so nervous I might miss a document or a deadline D:
Leading up to the wedding I kept on having all these crazy dreams/nightmares about it. Now they’re starting with school. Wooo.
Definitely best iced IMO. And sweetened. Unless you are a big fan of that grapefruit pucker, then it should be perfect as is. I can’t say I taste any green tea, it’s really mild, either that or the fruit is just steam-rolling it. lol. It is quite refreshing though!
You know how some websites just suck you in? Like, you’ll sit down and think “I’ll just peruse for a few minutes and then get back to the adult things I need to do.” Soon before you know it, it’s almost 2am and you wonder what your adult life has become. Is this what my 20’s are supposed to look like?
Oh well, at least I have my tea to get me through! This evening my pot of tea was not a fandom blend! I realized I had been drinking a lot of those lately and decided to go with one that was not a blend. I made 16oz of this, and had most of that pot hot, and the last little cup was cold from sitting. It was pretty darn good cold so that’s how I had the re-steep pot. With sugar. What can I say? The husband and his sweet-tea tendencies have been influencing me a lot lately. I really enjoyed it this time around. I do have another unopened sample pouch to decide whether or not this will be a re-stock.
I cold brewed this one for hmmm…. a couple days?? I kept saying, oh man, I need to strain those leaves. Ahh, I’ll do it in a little bit. Yeeeeeah, that didn’t happen. Regardless, this is an awesome iced tea, sweetened of course. The almond plays in to it rather nicely. I can’t remember if this is a sipdown or not. If not there’s only enough left for one mug I believe.
So delicious with a bit of sugar. I wanted something sweet but I also didn’t want to actually grab a snack (although we do still have some wedding cake left!) Perhaps I should have grabbed more of a “wind-down” type tea, but desserty sweetness just called to me and I couldn’t resist.
