1375 Tasting Notes
I am excited for this lemon-blueberry tea, though I’m a little iffy about the almond. Hopefully it will come together to make a yummy blueberry muffin-ness.
I love Gideon because he is so unapologetically evil and utterly annoying. I liked him more in the novels than the movie, but movie Gideon holds a special place in my heart too.
If anything, I’ll enjoy these teas for the happy feelings they give due to loving this series so, so much.
So onto the tea, it’s…okay. More rooibos than anything, but I do get a hint of lemon and blueberry, but it’s more like a generic berry. But yeah this is rooibos with just a bit of other flavors. Maybe the cold steep will be better.
We ordered the Scott Pilgrim sampler set and the Town We Do Not Speak Of Or Acknowledge sampler set. I’m going to go through each of them alphabetically.
Oh Scott Pilgrim, I love you. I fell in love with the graphic novels and then when the movie came out, we saw it three times in theaters. I loved seeing places around Toronto that I know well. Hell, we were at Honest Ed’s just this weekend! It kills me to think of it being closed down soon.
Anyway, on to Envy, one of my favorite characters.
I like her! I love roasted mate and the sweet orange and cinnamon…yummy. I love a good mate blend and this is one I will definitely enjoy drinking down.
So I finally got my Adagio order today (yay!) but I have to say I’m not terribly impressed (boo!). The tins are in no way airtight and every last one of them leaked. I am covered in tea from opening the boxes. A few of the blends don’t even look blended and I have to practically shove my nose in the tea to smell any kind of scent. However, I purchased these knowing full well I’m not a huge fan of Adagio teas and I basically purchased them for the tins, so in that aspect I am very happy. I’m now just kind of looking at it as I purchased some sweet tins that just happened to come with free tea. But I don’t think I’ll be ordering again.
We picked this one out because, well, my wife is my sugar daddy XD. Also, this blend is right up her alley, a green blend with orange and ginseng? She’s gonna love it.
It’s fairly good. It tastes healthy in a good way. I don’t quite know how to describe it, but it is good. If you like ginseng, give it a whirl.
I had another cup of this last night because I was having some tummy trouble and because I just plain enjoy it. I don’t know if they still carry it and I’m afraid to look because this sipdown could turn into a restock very easily. But I will try to resist and hope that when I cave, it isn’t available. 1 cup of this left and then it is out of my cupboard for a sad goodbye.
Yay sipdown! 393/403.
I usually prefer my herbals cold, but I’m eager to get this one out of my cupboard. Maybe I’ll have half hot and put the rest in the fridge.
Or maybe I’ll just chug this and not put myself through a second sitting of this. It’s not so great. First of all, I don’t like how the website only lists some of the ingredients. There is definitely fennel and hibiscus in this, but they aren’t listed. Anyway, it’s a bit creamy, but it’s just…okay. Not something I’m sad to see go.
I was eyeing this for a sipdown, but there’s enough for at least two more cups, boooo. But I really enjoy it, so I’m not that upset. It’s full of yummy berries and earthy pu-erh. I have a sore throat (thanks, mother in law), and this is soothing it wonderfully.
This tea reminds me how much I love just straight black teas. This is also a sipdown! 372 with tea/382 with teaware. We’re trying to establish a one in, one out in regards to buying new tea, so I’m trying to make up for the 50 new teas we’ve ordered in the last few weeks. This is lovely, but I have so much Nepal black and other straight black teas that I don’t feel the need to replace it. It’s sweet and bracing and yummy.
