1092 Tasting Notes
Today I decided to try mixing 1 tsp of this with 1 tsp of cocomint cream, as I saw that jessiwrites did this last week or so with excellent results. And I must say, this is really awesome! It produces just the right flavor that cocomint cream needed to not be as sugary sweet, instead, it is fresher and i much prefer it. I’m going to have to mix guayusa with a few more uncaffeinated teas! :)
Gah! My Zen Tea order is apparently in the city, and they supposedly left notice card here, but I don’t have it :( so I hope they did not attempt to deliver it to the wrong place..going to the post office tomorrow to try to snag it. Anyways, since I can’t have my new coconut oolong from them tonight, I am having a cup of this. I am enjoying the immense coconut hit so far in the first steep, will maybe have another cup if I’m not coconutted out by that time, but for now, very sweet and coconut POW. I hope this helps me write my paper, my only paper of the term, so close to finishing it too! :) see previous notes on this tea.
I was up til 3:30 doing our project and an assignment, and still managed to shower and come to my 10 AM class. Caffeine required. So I decided to try mixing 1.5 tsp of this with a little over a tsp of laoshan black. It tastes pretty good, almost as tasty as laoshan village chai but not as much chocolate. That might come out more when it cools though. I’m still enjoying this, very cozy, it’s really cold here today so this is the perfect tea. I’ll definitely play with mixing these teas again! :)
So today was my engineer ceremony woot! I am now officially an engineer (in training, but an engineer nonetheless). So a pretty exciting day, busy, but they did have some tea there, a Tazo assortment. I had a cup of this and it wasn’t too bad, my stomach was a bit yuck from waking up so early but this tea helped calm it down for the rest of the day. A standard mint taste, but you can’t really go wrong with mint in my opinion. Now I’m thinking of what tea to celebrate with now that I am home!
Yay! My water doesn’t taste weird after filtering and double boiling it lol. Hopefully the chlorine in it dissipates pretty soon. Anyways, the boyfriend requested either an oolong or white tea today, so I made us a few cups of this. I have enough left for one more round in my gong fu pot after this one. A delicious creamy tea, definitely will be getting some of the new spring tyg when it comes out! See previous notes :)
So it snowed again haha so out comes my chai! I keep meaning to mix this with my laoshan black, but not today, my stomach is in a weird place, so no caffeine yet. But this is spicy and delicious on its own, so no loss :D i really like this blend, it’s soo cozy and yet spicy enough that I’m kind of awake. I’m also happy this tastes normal, because the tap water is full of chlorine because of spring run off and it’s pretty disgusting! Been using filtered water for everything, kind of scared to shower though because it will dry out my sensitive skin immediately. Ah well, I hope my tea continues to taste good at least lol. See previous notes on this tea :)
I’ve been drinking this lovely tea on and off all day. It has an excellent laoshan green taste with an added sweetness that reminds me of genmaicha. I have enough left for one cup :( I need to order some Laoshan genmaicha, the chocolate one too! See previous notes on this tea :)
Oh, and it is currently freezing rain AND snowing here. After almost all the snow melted, the weather is having a massive freak out tonight. Going to be a skating rink tomorrow..happy I do not have to drive anywhere.
I stayed up till 1:30,not ridiculously late but I am feeling the effects and also continuing stress so time to break out one of my coveted Paris sachets. I think so far this is my favorite flavored black. Anyways its in my mug also so I don’t fall asleep in class lol. Sweet fruit, vanilla creaminess, i’m even getting caramel today. Thank you tea, for keeping me sane. See previous notes :)
Oops, i haven’t logged this yet! Well I’ve had quite a few cups of this already, it id integrated into my green rooibos travel mug rotation. The flavor is very fruity, the peach and apricot are the main flavors, and the rose adds a mild floral element. I can’t taste the green rooibos as much, maybe the honeybush is hiding it, and that may also cause this tea to be a bit sweeter. At first this tasted very similar to green & fruity by davidstea, but there’s a different aftertaste, not as fresh peachy but more sweet apricot peach. It’s ok, but not a favorite.
Overall, not a bad tea, but I still prefer cactus flower for a Della terra green rooibos blend, and green & fruity by davidstea for the peach flavor. I will gladly finish my bag though :)
