1111 Tasting Notes
Every once in a while, I start to crave an Earl. My wife had this one last night and it just smelled so good! Mmmm. So I’m enjoying a cuppa this morning in my new winter Winnie The Pooh mug. It’s nice and fruity and the bergamot doesn’t take over, which is always my complaint with Earls.
Love this one. I might need to make this my work tea today…
I know I’ve been using “juicy” and “lovely” a lot in my reviews, but that’s what I’ve been craving lately.
And this one hits that sweet spot. Oh my goodness. Ooooooh my goodness! I love watermelon. I live for watermelon in the summer and yes, I will buy a whole watermelon and bring it home, even when I was walking to the grocery store. And I’m the only person in the house who eats it!
This is juicy and melon-y…yum. It does taste a touch artificial, but not so much so that it takes away from the tea. I am surprised with the full flavor with every sip! I was expecting a black tea with a hint of melon or strawberry. Instead I get POWberry and WHAMmelon! So much love for this…I may need to stock up before summer comes…if summer ever comes…
I’ve had a cold coming on for ages now, so yesterday I reached for something that might help. Hey, even if it doesn’t, mind over matter, eh?
I don’t usually like my whites hot, but this was delicious. Lots of love for this little beauty. It’s light, refreshing, and fruity, but not overly so. I got a straight white tea from Teavivre, I might have to give it a go today!
Started off my day with this yesterday…..yum yum yum. My local Davids needs to get all of their teas back in stock, darn it! I keep trying to buy a tin of green mate, but they’ve been out of it for ages. Sadface.
The mate added an earthy note that only enhanced the deliciousness of the Goji Pop. It was a very lovely day to start my day.
First of all, I’m not going to rate this one because I bought it expecting not to like it, and that’s just not fair. But I put my faith in DavidsTea, they have yet to make a blend I hate. It may not be my favorite cup ever, but I’ve never had a tea from them that wasn’t at least somewhat enjoyable.
At first sniff, I was sure this would be the tea to break that record. It is very, very strong. It does remind me of the ocean a bit, but I get none of the mint mentioned. Frankly, the smell of the dry leaf turns my stomach.
The steeped tea is much weaker, thank goodness. But all I taste is the sea lettuce and the cardamom. I’m having a hard time finding the words to describe the sea lettuce other than, well, it tastes like it sounds like it would taste. Kind of like I imagine seaweed would taste. Hrm.
Luckily, it did not break the record for me. It’s a decent tea, and if vegetal greens are your thing, I’d recommend this. I’m glad I only got 10g, though. The sea lettuce is something I’d never tasted before, so I’m pleased to have tried something new…nori! That’s it, it tastes like nori to me. Which is seaweed. Hrm. Now I want sushi.
Uuuuugh. Ate out for lunch at a fast food joint, feeling bloated and fat now. Guzzling tea to help with that, oolong to detox my system a bit. Plus, y’know, I really like oolongs.
New Year, new willpower about these fast food joints! I hope…..
This tea is just plain lovely. Light and refreshing, it makes me feel so much better after a big meal, and it’s peach! I love me some peach. A++
