970 Tasting Notes
Still meh on this one. I am loving the peach flavor, but the yogurt takes it to a weird place for me. I’m just not loving it once the yogurt kicks in. Though the yogurt did curdle when it steeped, so that might be it. One more try before rating.
It’s official, I’m never buying premade tea in-store from DAVIDsTEA again. This was supposed to be the tea of the day, but they hadn’t received their shipment of it yet. The girl tried to sell me on Sencha Pear, telling me they tasted quite similar (they don’t) and my other option was the Decaffinator, which…blegh. No thanks. So I opted to pay full price, well, fullish since I had my travel press with me, to get a cup of Mom’s Apple Pie. I waited a minute or so after it was given back to me to press the leaves to the bottom. When it was finally cool enough for me to take a sip, I nearly spat it out. The leaves were very obviously scorched. To the point that I couldn’t drink it. So essentially I paid $2 for a round of nausea. Grrrrr. I keep telling myself, stick to the herbals and blacks in store, they do nothing but burn greens and whites. Blegh. I might take advantage of the $1 tea of the day special until it’s gone, but I’m not paying $2 for a cup there again unless desperate.
In other news, I bought a harvest tin of this beautiful little tea. So it ain’t all bad! And some Southern Belle to try at home.
So yesterday was plain awful
You can say that again.
Yesterday was plain awful!
But that’s not now, that’s then.
/end Annie moment.
Anyway, after a 2 hour transit home that should have only taken 1 hour, my wife met me at the bus stop with a bottle of apple juice and a mug of this waiting for me at home. Made everything a bit better. Best wife ever.
Made a cup of this to take with me to Square One for what turned out to be a terrible workday. And long. But this tea made it just a little bit easier. <3. Making some to take today in hopes that it will make my short shift even shorter. Two weeks ago, I was jobless. Today, I consider a 7 hour day a short day XD.
Used my last bit of this to make a pot and chill overnight. I took it to work with me Saturday and I’m going to do the same today. I wasn’t fond of the taste at the beginning of work the other day, but after an hour or so of running around, I was very grateful for its cooling properties. I suspect the same will be true today, but I’m not that sad to have used the last of it.
Oh my god this tea. Nom nom nom. I love it. I am hoarding my little bag until I can afford more (FRIDAY). I made a pot to share with the wife this morning and I think I might just spend my day off resteeping this amazing tea. Yummy. I’m trying to figure out what I can bake with this tea….I was thinking caramel apple pie, but now I’m thinking this might make an AMAZING apple crumble or even just oatmeal cookies flavored with this tea…what do you think, steepsterites?
I had my lukewarm, which was perfect.
I’m not sure how I feel about this tea. I opted for agave instead of sugar, which…I dunno. Agave adds a thickness and burnt quality to tea for me. I need to get a bit and try it out at home, but personally I didn’t see much difference between this and Long Life Oolong.
Had this iced yesterday on the way to work, yum yum yum! It really did taste like buttercream, very creamy and sweet. I agree with whoever said a touch of vanilla would help, but this certainly hit the spot yesterday! I have a lot of love for this tea, but I need to try it a few more times before deciding to stock up or not. I am very, very pleased to find this one isn’t just traces of white tea loaded down and made heavy by fruit like Mango Madness, Cherry Potion, or Pom Power.
I was trying to figure out which herbal to make iced tea with and found the last of my bag of this one. I dumped it in, made a pot and accidentally let it steep way too long. Still, I put it in the fridge overnight and let it do its thing. Today it’s nice and cold and refreshing, but a bit too hibiscus-y for my tastes. I still don’t care much for this tea, but tonight it is definitely hitting the spot.
Also, while picking up teas in store today, I sold a travel press and 50g of tea to my sister in law XD. DT should totally be paying me.
Resteep. A friend told me this is delicious iced, so I’m going to act like I let my tea cool considerably on purpose. >.> I made it with brown sugar this time, and while I don’t usually resteep blacks, I couldn’t resist the mulberries. They’re so cute!
My friend was right, this one is amazing iced. So my verdict is Hot = amazing, warm = okay, cold = amazing!
