124 Tasting Notes
Tea & Cards TTB
I woke up this morning feeling like complete crap. Sinuses are out of whack, this week continues to be a cluster of stress, and I despite what was an actually decent night of sleep for the first time in a few days, I just felt exhausted 5 minutes after opening my eyes.
This was one of the teas I had set aside from the Tea & Cards TTB to try at work and I’m really glad I chose it this morning. Very refreshing. Tropical, fruity and just what I needed. It reminded me a bit of the Mighty Leaf Tropical Green Tea, but with a lot more flavor and complexity.
I marked this one as maybe for my next Harney & Sons order. Though who knows when that order will be… I have a lot of tea to sipdown before that can happen!
No notes yet. Add one?
Lovely and delicate. Another fantastic melon tea. It’s definitely general melon and not specifically watermelon in my opinion, but still I’m a fan. Who know I liked melon tea this much??
It’s a very rainy day and I would like nothing more than to be home on my couch drinking ALL OF THE TEA and reading the book I’m nearly finished with or playing hours of old school Rollercoaster Tycoon like I did basically all weekend. Oh what an exciting life I lead! But nope, I am at work and consoling myself with light flavorful tea.
This is a tea I would very much like to sipdown. I’m making some progress with the help of my coworkers. Sharing tea at work has definitely helped me pare down!
It’s a nice peach tea. Definitely light and juicy, but its not my favorite peach tea by any means. I still need to give this one a try iced. Maybe I’ll bring some home to ice this weekend.
Thank you, Marzipan, for sending this my way! This is delicious!
The scent of the dry leaf was so amazing. Very rich and intoxicating with its fruity scent. I definitely taste the papaya. It’s the dominant flavor, but the berry is present too. It does remind me ever so slightly of cantaloupe & cream in taste, which is really strange because it doesn’t smell ANYTHING like that.
So yeah, delicious. Might have to add this to my wishlist!
This became a sipdown last night. I would seriously consider purchasing this again. Each time I had this in the evening I really looked forward to drinking it.
Last night I curled up on the couch with my sore muscles, a cup of this, and a DVR full of TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are? episodes. That show is pretty much my favorite. I always look forward to its return because I love genealogy anyways, but that show makes it kind of like a detective show too. Such a brilliant combination.
White teas in general seem to be growing on me, but I really gravitate towards flavored white teas lately. Any recommendations?
But anyways. This was the only tea I tried from the HHTTB R3 that I wanted to keep. I’m still surprised how much I like melon teas. This one I don’t get a ton of watermelon in this tea, the cantaloupe seems to be the dominant flavor here. It’s definitely sharper than the butiki cantaloupe and cream, which is much smoother. But I downed this cup quite quickly, which is a sure sign I like it a lot.
