59 Tasting Notes

I was on vacation last week, and I chose to mostly take a vacation from the internet as well. So I didn’t get around to logging much, but I did have this most mornings. A nice way to start the day except the morning I made it iced instead of hot. Unless my taste buds are just weird, this tea just doesn’t work as an iced a.m. beverage.

drank Apricot Essence by Davidson's

Picked this up tonight. Had never tried it and it was cheap. The scent of apricot was incredibly strong, but much lighter when tasted. I think I’ll try an even shorter steep time next time. A good alternative to Lipton.

drank China Pacific Rose by Bartleby's

From one of the Bartleby’s own blends. The cafe is next door to the (somewhat) famous Mystic Pizza. Bartleby’s should be the one with recognition. But many people do tend to like eating cooked cheese more than drinking dried leaves.

Have had this two mornings in a row. Have just enough for one more cup. Will miss it and may order some in the future.

Had this yesterday. (The 0 calorie stevia version, not the sugar cane one.) I liked this better when tea was one of the first ingredients. Now it’s carrot juice. I can’t even taste the tea anymore.

drank Peach Oo-la-long by Honest Tea

This brings back memories. Peach is one of my favorite black tea fruit flavors. And I had a coupon so I picked this up. It’s a lot less sweet than most other sweetened, bottled teas on the market. But, still, it’s almost unbearably sweet to my palate. I remember about 5 years ago I bought this and couldn’t even tell it was sweet. Our palates really do change based on how much refined sugar we ingest. Still a much better choice than other bottled tea brands. It was my “transition” tea.

I love peach tea! I agree with sugar intake. I used to take pitcher full of sweet tea, now I drink most my teas naked. I can’t even stomach all the sweeten bottled junk. I was a fan of Snapple’s Peach Tea, but it tastes like pop to me now.

drank Keemun Royal by Rishi Tea
59 tasting notes

On my third cup of this morning. This would be a good tea for coffee drinkers looking to switch. Its complex flavors are rich and thick and it’s a full-bodied tea with more than the average amount of caffeine. (At least it seems that way to me as I always feel a caffeine buzz when I drink it.)

Had some of this last night. Feels a bit weird adding this to my cupboard, but it is tea related and it is in my house…We added some lemonade to it—which is probably the first thing people trying mixing. Nice. Lemonade tea and vodka go nicely together. I wonder other cocktails could be made?

I had no idea this was considered “tea”. FYI not good straight at all. Like drinking alchoholic syrup.

Made this while fixing breakfast and accidentally oversteeped it by about 5 minutes! Still excellent, now the flavors are just more bold.

Preparation

I love cold tea & hot tea equally. But living in New England I end up drinking more hot than cold.

I never add sugar or milk to tea. I love lemon in hot and cold teas. And I sometimes experiment with other fresh fruit additions.

I tend toward subtle fruity blends of black, green, oolong, and rooibos teas but I’m trying to expand my tea palate a bit. I hope being part of this website will help.

I am interested in tea swapping. Anything in my cupboard I’m willing to swap. I love trying new teas!

My ratings (because I need some way to conceptualize this vast system) are:

01-39 Unfollow.
40-49 Will never speak to again.
50-59 Would consider calling again.
60-69 Can hangout in my cupboard until they find a place to stay.
70-89 We can be roommates.
90-94 Here’s the key to my cupboard.
95-100 How can a tea be this perfect and special? We must be soulmates.
