193 Tasting Notes

I had a cup of this at work this am and was able to enjoy it hot, always a plus! One of my coworkers was in my office when I was scooping some of the loose tea into a paper filter and asked to smell the tea. She wanted to try a cup and she enjoyed it! I think I will take her a little bag of this tea for a treat on Monday so she can take some home. Especially since I have a pound of this!!! :) And I have a great supplier if I order by the pound!

So, I am so square—honestly look up wet blanket in the dictionary and there’s a picture of me. BUT, I collect useless knowledge. For instance, do you know the origin of the 4:20 meme? If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a marijuana-related reference, which most marijuana users, even if they know and reference the meme, do not really know the origin of it. Well, here it is: In the 20s, the jazz musicians used to refer to marijuana as “tea”. Tea time in England is at 4:20.

very interesting!

@Frank – I had no idea! So now I’m wondering, does England brew up cannabis tea? Just curious… lol

I needed an afternoon pick me up and decided to go for the Hot cinnamon spice with the caffeine. Tastes great! It is freezing cold outside and I feel like I should just keep this in the breville all afternoon ready and waiting on the “keep warm” feature. But I think I would be up all night if I do. WIll have to switch to a pot of decaf on tap :)

Harneys gave me a samples of this with my vanilla comoro, I’m excited to give it a go!

Kristen

Ooh anxious to hear what you think! The first time I made it really too strong and thought I hated it. When I backed down on the amount of tea leaf it was much better and I love it!

Another crazy day…had to drink most of this cold but I do also enjoy it that way! Again hoping tomorrow I can enjoy a cup of HOT tea!
I have to check Den’s tea website and see if this is back in stock…I am getting low on it already! ALthough I soon need to put myself on a ban of tea buying! IT is SOOOOO hard but I think my tea cabinet is getting out of control!!!!!

My mom and I were shopping today and leave it to us to find tea in a place I didn’t expect to. We found cubes of this in a TJ MAX store for $5.99 for 100 bags. What the heck we both bought a cube of it. Neither of us is disappointed, for a teabag this is not bad. Light green tea with a nice mango flavor! On a side note, also found some organic agave nectar for a great price too! It was a GREAT shopping day! :)

Kristen

I am on a “mango” kick… the local pizza shop has mango vinegarette and I have been ordering grilled chicken salads from them daily and getting the mango dressing! Yummy!

I buy a lot of my tea at T.J.Maxx, its always on the cheap…

drank Sakura Sencha by Den's Tea
193 tasting notes

This tea reminds me of spring and spring can’t come soon enough for me this year! The sencha is the dominant taste with a slight floral tone to it. I was a little nervous about the floral part because I do not like floral teas but this is very light. The cherry is a tart taste but light and balanced with the buttery green taste and floral notes. This is SPRING! I like it!!!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 0 min, 45 sec

Delicious….great way to wake up on a Friday! Especially a Friday with no where to be and nothing planned!

The best days are “get-to” days, not “gotta-do” days.

OHHHH this one is so good! I still do not see it listed as a permanent addition though :( starting the sniffling now!
I love this! I get great coconut taste with a tangy bite to it. I am trying to ration my one and only pouch but it is hard!
I love the fact that it is a honeybush blend and without caffiene for me to enjoy in the evening!!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Pineapple Sencha by Den's Tea
193 tasting notes

I knew before I even went to work this am it was going to be a super crazy and super long day!!!! My front desk person was out sick and I had to leave my post as business manager and jump into a super busy front desk position of the dental practice. I have a much greater appreciation for the coworkers who do this job on a regular basis because it is absolutely nuts…I don’t think I went to the restroom all day LOL.
Anyway I decided to steep and take some pineapple sencha because I knew it would be cold till I was able to finish it and I would still love it! I was right! At least for a few quick sips during today I felt like I was on a tropical island! I also had one of the expanded functions assistants out sick which I found out when I arrived at work so I even jumped back into my old role of dental assisting for a few moments today. WOW….I am tired! Looking forward to a better day tomorrow when I can hopefully enjoy my tea HOT! :)

So yesterday I spent a great day with friends shopping, going to the tea store and visiting a tea room for lunch. At the tea shop they just got in some matcha and I could buy just an ounce. I decided I would go for it and give it a try. (I have always wanted to try it but just nervous about it.) Well I tried it today and was pleased with my first attempt. It had a vegetative taste but also a touch of sweetness to it. I am not sure how to describe it. However, since I had the bowl of matcha I feel incredibly thirsty??!!! Not sure about that. I think I would enjoy some of the flavored matcha.
I am not going to rate it because I am not sure which company’s matcha I had. But I will definitely have some again!

Dede

I was waiting to hear how you liked it. :)

I enjoyed this while at lunch with girlfriends at a nice tearoom Sugarplums and Tea. We had great food and tea! A lovely time!
This tea was greatly flavored strawberry and I also got the cream part while using a nice light green tea base. Super yummy, refreshing and relaxing! We each had our own pot of different tea but I think everyone purchased some of this one loose to take home. We all loved it!

Dede

Super fun and super yummy..thanks for sharing.
