214 Tasting Notes

A while back I decided to both go on a sipdown schedule and a tea buying hiatus. The 1st one I’ve quit, because tea has always been from the beginning more of a treat…like at the end of a long day and a present to myself for not strangling anybody. So, with exception of the occasional iced tea jug where I can use up alot more tea at once…not going to bother with any sipdowns. The Tea Buying Hiatus however, I have no choice but to go thru with that.

This tea: It’s ok. Tastes nice…but not terribly inspiring.

Odd, very odd this tea. I like it well enough though I highly doubt I will get it again. Why? Because this tea just tastes to odd to have very often, but I’ll try for a iced tea.

I had the Raspberry Cream Pie way before I had this tea, and even though this tea tastes similar, the raspberry tastes ALOT better. It’s not a bad tea, I just would like something that had alittle more…depth or funkyness.

I havn’t had much luck with green tea, I don’t know why but the majority of it just doesn’t have much distinct taste from another.

Including this tea. Though my wallet thanks me. Heh.

I recently ordered a bunch of tea, including quite a bit from David’s Tea…and accidentally got sent 2 packets of this tea.

While I have a mild like for this tea, I think this will go in the iced tea pile. Not a bad thing, as there isn’t much tea I like in that pile. Yet anyways…since I plan on heading to Teavana tomorow or friday. Heh.

This tea is better then the last tea I reviewed just a minute ago, but highly doubt I will be getting this one again either.

I don’t know…maybe I will change my mind…not in a good mood at the moment.

Wasn’t impressed with this tea at all. It didn’t taste bad…just not really worth buying.

There used to be wild rhubarb growing by the fence in the backyard of the house I 1st lived in after living in the U.P. Everynow and then I’d grab a stalk and gnaw on it, though I could eat a little bit before the tartness got to me. My favorite pie as a kid? Strawberry & rhubarb pie of course:) This tea is kind of bringing those memories back.

I like this tea alot better then the strawberry and vanilla from Lupicia’s happy bag.

Not sure if I’d want to get more though.

Whoops! I thought I had done a review for this tea…total blond moment….I’ve bought so much tea these last few months that its hard to keep track.

Anyways…I am super picky about Eg blends…I mean I’ll willingly try out samples, but buying more then that it has to both unusual and fantastic.

So far this is managing to be both.
