1099 Tasting Notes
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 :)
Another tea that I am nearly at the bottom of the bag of! Haha well at least getting close to some sipdowns, I have a pile of tea coming my way in the next few weeks… :D anyways, I know it is a bit late for black tea, but I would like to be somewhat productive tonight and so far, nothing..the margaritas at dinner with the bf’s parents might be the culprit..ah well. Anyways, I’m having a cup of this to try to find some motivation. I may have to stock up on a bit more of this, but I would like to try a few more EGCs before committing to this one as my favorite. Delicious tea as always though! See previous notes :)
Oh, and I am also a bit sad tonight..we have been catsitting my boyfriend’s parents kitty for the past week and a half, and she goes home tomorrow :( she is currently cuddled up under a blanket in bed, so cute! Now I want a kitten, although I am allergic and have been having allergy pills the whole time the cat has been here..ah well, I will dream.
Sorry for the random, not very tea related review. I don’t want to do more school, so am procrastinating on here.
This morning I realized i’m almost out of this! I need to make a davidstea trip asap, as I love this blend and need at least 50 g or a tin of it. I even accidently steeped it for 6 minutes today, oops. Still tasty and hopefully will wake me up for the day, last 2 weeks of University! So much to do, I need energy energy energy today! See previous notes on this yummy tea :)
This was the last tea to grace my glass branch mug from DAVIDsTEA, it broke shortly after finishing this cup. :( well at least it was a tasty cup! I am liking guayusa so far, very fresh and veggie like, and I find it doesn’t have as noticeable of a buzz as when I drink mate, which is not a bad thing. I also like the rainforest feeling I get when I drink this. See previous notes :)
