970 Tasting Notes
I was very wary of this tea, but no more! This is ddelicious! It warming and fruity and delicious. I definitely agree with this tea being a combination of Forever Nuts and Kanpe, but I’m a fan of both of those teas, so it’s all good. I’m glad I have 50 g of this! It’s a bit heavy, so I appreciate the price point of $7 per 50 g.
What a lovely way to start December! This was the first tea of the advent calendar (it’s evening, if you haven’t ripped into your advent calendar yet, you deserve spoilers!) and we were very impressed! The tins for the calendar are 2-3 times the size of their sampler tins, if you’ve ever put in an online order. So we changed plans a little. I had been planning to just have a cup every morning, but since the tins are so large, the wife and I decided to use our pretty Christmas teapot and share a pot every morning!
This is an old favorite. We both really enjoy this tea, so we were more than happy to share. The smooth chocolate and mint blend so well with the bite of peppercorn….mmm. This is a bestseller for a reason.
Iced this puppy overnight after falling in love with it again last night. Mmmm. It is very refreshing, but the rooibos seems to take over, which is sad. But hot, this is still amazing!
Every time I drink this tea, I am surprised by how much I love it. I have somewhere around 150g now, and I don’t think that’s enough XD. It’s sweet and juicy and refreshing…mmmm. I might have to go after a second cup before bed.
Were it not for this tea, I’m fairly certain I would have fallen asleep at work today. True facts. However, due to having a co-admin to deal with two doctors in office instead of the usual one doctor and one admin (myself), I was able to finish my whole 1-L thermos today. Yay!
This one is very good, but we’re running low and I’m not sure if I want to restock or not. Hmmmm.
Edited to add: You know, I don’t think I will restock. All day, I sipped this, but I can’t really remember the taste, and while several times I said “Mmmm caffeine,” I never once went “Mmmmm, this is such a tasty tea.” Life is too short to waste on so-so tea ;)
Full disclosure: I am a sucker for anything carrying the name of a certain reindeer.
So when putting together an order online to possibly pick up in-store, I discovered that for a few extra bucks, I could have it shipped to my house for free…so this was a no-brainer.
It’s quite good! The cranberry and vanilla mix together well enough. It hasn’t blown my socks off, but it won’t be a hardship to finish the bag.
This was a very good black blend! The spices mixed together well, I especially enjoyed the bit of bite from the peppercorns. The cinnamon speaks up, but not overwhelmingly so…overall this was a very tasty cup! This is a tea I will enjoy while we have it, but I’m not entirely sure it will be one to replace when the bag runs out.
The wonderful The DJBooth sent this to me as an added bonus to our swap! I’m always game for another mate! Sadly, this one left me hanging. I’m not a hibiscus fan at all, and it seems painfully dominant in this blend. I don’t care for it at all, but I’m grateful for the chance to have tried it! I do like the bright pink color!
Oh, this is lovely. After an afternoon of terrible food, I was falling asleep, so I reached for something to wake up a bit. I tried this one and I am in love. I’ve found my vanilla blacks, both decaf and caf. Wonderful.
This tea is creamy and sweet without being overly so. The tea has its own presence as well, mingling to make a perfect little tea.
Last one this morning, I promise. I had a cuppa last night, it’s the most amazingly soothing tea ever. My wife left the bag in (since when do I drink my teas with the bag left in?), but it was still amazing and creamy and minty and perfect. I think the combination of vanilla and mint is just the most perfect thing to me.
