1102 Tasting Notes
Oh man, this was good and I was so pissed that it was so good XD. It’s another heavy, expensive white blend, but it…guh. It’s amazing. It’s creamy and sweet and almost caramel-like, from what I can remember (I drank it at work while being BORED OUT OF MY SKULL). But I remember loving it. Definitely need to buy more tomorrow.
So I used the last of my sample bag of this to make a thermos of goodness for work and try to decide if it’s worth restocking. Conclusion? While tasty enough, this tea didn’t stand out enough for me to make room in my cupboard. Sadness. I think I just want to like it due to the call back to “Celtic lore” in the description XD. This blend is tasty, but ultimately forgettable.
Hrm. I don’t know. It’s good, kinda. But I don’t think I’d ever actively reach for it. I like the mango, but if I’m looking for a fruity oolong, I’m always going to reach for Long Life Oolong. De says it’s heavy and I would agree with that. And slightly artificial, but not overly so. All in all, I’m glad I tried it, the fruit flavors are lovely, but I can’t justify making room in my cupboard for this one.
I’m finishing up my day with this one, since it tends to calm my tummy and headaches, both of which I have at the moment. I’m just not hungry today, which is weird and tells me I’m sick. I’ve made two full meals for myself today and couldn’t finish either. Blegh. This tea is still delicious and tasty, but I’m just not in the mood to finish my teas today, I guess.
Today was a day of meh teas. When I picture my teas from today, in my mind I just see a sea of light greens and yellow colors. Not my favorites, but I don’t hate them. They’re just…meh. I started off my day with this, hoping it would inspire me to get off my butt and do something (it didn’t). It developed this weird orange film that stuck to the sides of my mug and moved weirdly as I tilted my mug…it was odd. I ended up just chugging this to empty the mug so I could put it in the dishawasher.
So…meh. It’s okay, but not a restock for me.
