1458 Tasting Notes

Yesterday my wife and I made butter using Tea Monkey’s Vanilla Chai cold brewed in whipping cream. I was making a tomato soup that called for cream, so we made butter to use up some of the extra cream. The butter is delicious and surprisingly strong in the chai flavor area! But the process of making butter also creates buttermilk and I saved it to splash into this to amp up the chai flavor and it is delicious. Not gonna change the rating because I don’t know how much is the milk and how much is the tea.

So good. Always one of my favorites. It’s perfect and creamy. It really does taste like a a liquid ice cream cake and it makes me super happy.

IT’S FINALLY COOL ENOUGH FOR HOT TEA. Started with this for my morning cuppa, nice and sweet and perfect. Exactly what I needed.

I had half a sample package of this and half a sample package of TeaVivre’s Strawberry oolong, so I mixed them together again for a yummy strawberry oolong. It smells and tastes very vegetal, as I was watching it steep (I love watching these teas unfurl), it made me crave sushi hardcore. So yummy and sweet and creamy. Perfect.

Iced

Another day another yummy cuppa. It was so good yesterday that I needed another cup. But now the sun has come up and it is too dang hot for September, so I will be switching back to iced teas for the rest of the day XD.

Oh man, this is the perfect tea for my morning. I got about three hours of sleep last night, but this tea is waking me up and making me happy and getting me ready for my day. Which is good, because I have a lot to do. But this is a wonderfully cinnamony, shimmery cup of joy. Definitely better hot than iced.

My first sip was “Oh! This is really good!” But as the sips went on, it tasted more and more artificial and bitter to me, like orange peel instead of juicy orange. By the time I finished the cup, I was chugging it just to get rid of it.

Sipdown and farewell to this blend. It was wonderful while it lasted, but I think it’s time to say goodbye.

This tin of tea is the first tin of tea we ever bought. So yay memories! But this also means it’s five and a half years old. Yikes. My tummy has been off for a few days, so hopefully this will help with that.

It’s still good! Gingery and earthy and tasty. Since it’s taken us five years for drink down this tin, we likely won’t get any more, but it will be yummy until it’s gone.

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have five! live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put stevia in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
