1468 Tasting Notes
I’m not sure how I feel about this. I will add my voice to the others in saying that the blue of this tea is absolutely gorgeous. Think TARDIS blue.
I always sweeten my teas, and the back of the package says it goes well with honey, so I added honey instead of my usual sugar. I will not be doing this again. The honey makes it…I don’t know, it brings out the tang and the…funkiness of the tea. I’m not sure how to describe it. It’s very vegetal, and the honey makes it taste almost sour. Not lip-puckering sour, but kinda like milk gone off.
It’s not awful, but I need to try this without honey before I rate it.
The problem with our cupboard is there are a great many teas that are 4-5 cups away from a sipdown, so we’re drinking tea we don’t care for without the triumph of it being out of our cupboard.
This is one such example. It’s okay. Hot all I could taste was the guayusa, but when it cooled I could taste some other flavors, sweet citrus, mostly, but it still wasn’t stellar. Okay, not great.
This is a lovely nighttime tea. I enjoy chamomile, but it makes me crazy sleepy. This is mostly chamomile with some apple. I didn’t taste much blueberry until it started to cool…oh there it is.
This is very nice and I won’t have any trouble finishing off the sachets in order to get to the tin .
The girls (our three cats) conferred and decided to let me out of bed to make tea. When I’m sick, all three pile into the bed with (and on) me, despite their personal issues with each other. But now Earlie (full name Earl Jean Grey) is jealously guarding me and the tea, and I’m not sure which one she’s more interested in.
This tea smells so, so good. My mouth started watering as soon as I opened the package. I had been hoping for a sipdown before I remembered we bought two try me packs of this tea…oh well.
The first sip is wonderful. Cinnamon (my favorite), vanilla, sweetness. But every sip after that is more and more of a let down. I taste no oatmeal and no raisins. Sadness. I’m greatly enjoying the cinnamon, but I have cinnamon crackle. I have no need for other cinnamon teas XD. And I feel like The Glow from DavidsTea is a much better oatmeal tea.
So it will be a pleasure to finish up this cup, but I don’t feel the need to replace it.
I’ve been sick for days, so there hasn’t been much tea in my world. But my wife made me a cup of this for my morning cup. And it’s a sipdown, YAY.
A big yay because this was not that good. The puerh was very present and did not mix well at all with the artificial raspberry. I enjoy a good puerh, but this was just…blegh.
Also, now I can’t stop singing Prince in my head.
Appropriately enough, the end of my alphabetic journey through Night Vale is The Weather.
I will not make the obvious joke.
This smells like thai green curry. I have such a craving now. Unless this tea is amazing, the rest will be used to make rice, because yum.
The tea is very, very good, but it tastes like green curry. So yes, it will be going into delicious rice…yum.
So that’s all the fandom blends! I feel like I’ve lost my purpose now.
No notes yet. Add one?
I had a cup of this last night, but I have no memory of it because as soon as I sat down to enjoy it, my laptop decided to start sounding like the unmarked black helicopters seen in the skies of Night Vale.
This area is Not Good For Play. I will mourn you Vanellope.
So I made a new cup today and I rather like Steve Carlsberg (Sorry Cecil!). The grapefruit and the vanilla pair well together, but it’s more vanilla than grapefruit, which is a little disappointing…I love grapefruit.
But he is keeping me company as I fight with my old laptop to back up before she dies. Sigh.
