1471 Tasting Notes

Wife brought this home for me last night, as I’m fighting off a rough cold. It’s…meh. Soothing, yes, but the flavor was so odd. Like a chai tea gone wrong. I like licorice, but this was a bit much. I’ll stick to bravissimo.

Oh no, I was hoping you’d be feeling better by now.

I’m on the mend, thankfully <3 I’ve only had one medicinal tea all day, yay!!

Also, you need to get thee to a Disney Store XD https://www.disneystore.com/plush-toys-swedish-chef-tsum-tsum-plush-the-muppets-mini-3-12/mp/1413799/1000267/ Saw one last week and thought of you!

Fjellrev

HAHA! I was looking at the Star Wars ones and wasn’t quite impressed but Swedish Chef totally works for that style. Thanks! I should totally grab one. :)

Fjellrev

And I’m glad to hear you’re getting there. I really hope all these medicinal teas are truly helping.

drank Supreme Pekoe by DAVIDsTEA
1471 tasting notes

Still sick, but felt up to a cup of non-medicinal tea this morning, my night meds still working. Last night, while picking up this year’s adorably spooky mug from DavidsTea, my wife also cashed in our three free 50g of tea. Blueberry Jam, Throat Rescue, and this, Supreme Pekoe.

It’s good! But it feels kinda flat to me. I keep taking another sip, expecting there to be more flavor. It’s just kinda one-note. When reaching for a straight black, I’ll keep my Nepal Black in stock, but I’m glad to have tried this one.

It was either this one or throat rescue that was so good. I thought they could have given it another name and it would have worked. Had one as a sample. Then I tried it throat rescue as a cup made in store. So I have to try cold 911. What I liked was the flavour / spice.

Fjellrev

Oh no, hope you feel better soon!

VariaTEA

Feel better soon :)

Oh my goodness. I was not expecting to like this one as much as I do. I was craving a straight black tea this morning and instead of reaching for my usual Nepal Black, I reached for a sample in the sipdowns pile. There was SO MUCH LEAF in this little sample package. Definitely 2-3 cups worth. It has a metallic taste, kinda like licking a penny, but I don’t dislike it. It’s all good.

Sil

yeah this one’s tasty

Imagine my heartbreak when I opened my tin of this and it smelled stale ; . ;. I made a cup anyway, hoping it was still good.

Brewed up, I smell the yummy spiciness of cinnamon and allspice. I get a hint of marshmallow with every sip.

But it’s stale. Not going to adjust the rating as the staleness is my fault for hoarding this tea obsessively. But I am going to move the tin to sipdowns and hope that my sealed bag lasted longer.

I miss this one… it was so good.

Michelle

Never got to try that one. How old is it?

Is there anything better than Santa’s Secret? Not to me…

VariaTEA

This makes an awesome tea smoothie :)

Daddyselephant

I bet! I can’t wait until egg nog is on the shelves…

VariaTEA

Oh eggnog, I look forward to it as well. My diet, on the other hand, is not so excited :P

drank Raspmonade by TeaTaxi

This is the other tea I forgot about and…blegh. It smells overwhelmingly rooibos and tastes the same. It’s ROOIBOS with a hint of berry. Not my style.

I made two cups of tea, forgot about them, and stuck them in the fridge to take a nap. SO I had this cold and it was delicious! I didn’t seem to get any hibiscus in my cup and it was fruity and light and juicy. Very, very good!

Bio

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have five! live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put stevia in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
