1000 Tasting Notes
I woke up with a really terrible headache this morning so I thought a big dose of caffeine would be in order. I brewed this tea up double strength for about 10 minutes and then added a big of cane sugar and milk. This is really starting to help wrangle my throbbing head into submission. Super strong Irish Breakfast rocks!!
After a very nice mid-day nap, I wanted something smooth and light. This tea was the first thing that came to mind. I made this into a tea latte and it is really great like this. This is definitely a sophisticated, reflective sipping tea.
I love drinking this as my first tea of the day. I added a bit of cane sugar and a splash of dark chocolate creamer today and it creates a very grown-up hot chocolate taste. This is absolutely delicious! I’m definitely looking forward to the mate kick this morning.
I am sure this has caffeine, but for some reason Silver Needle is always comforting and relaxing. This tea tastes especially good tonight – very honeyed and smooth.
For some reason I was extremely tired today and fell asleep around 5pm…and didn’t wake up until around midnight. I definitely wanted some tea but didn’t necessarily want to stay up for the rest of the night so I pulled out the Vanilla Comoro. This tea is so smooth and flavorful, I almost can’t believe that it is a decaf tea. I’ve had so many poorly done decaf options, but this is so good!
This is yet another tea from the awesome JacquelineM! Thanks again!!
I’ve tried this sample previously, but didn’t pay enough attention to it as I took it as my work tea (it can be tough paying attention to anything when teaching 6 year olds). I am revisiting this tonight because I’ve wanted to try it and would like to know if it is worth the somewhat hefty (in my opinion) price tag that this tea carries.
While I’m sure this tea is amazing on it’s own, I am really enjoying it with a pinch of sugar and a splash of milk this evening. The first infusion had a definite malty earthiness which reminded me quite a bit of the Golden Bi Luo from Chicago Tea Garden. I was hesitant to try a second infusion because the first one was for such a long time, but I went ahead and gave it a shot.
I am glad that I tried this second infusion! The earthiness is not very noticeable now, but there is a honey sweetness that has taken over. I definitely think that my pinch of sugar has something to do with it, but I can tell there is a natural sweetness lurking below my additions. I am really loving this tea and it will be on my shopping list for sure!
I love that I can have this before bed and still sleep soundly. What a great treat while sitting in bed reading a good book!
After spending my day sipping on the lovely Organic Black with Coconut, I didn’t want to end my day of fine, delicious tea. I decided to pull this out because I feel that it is a very sophisticated tea. It is definitely not a “wake up” tea but more of a “quiet night with a good book” tea. I made this as a tea latte, which I didn’t think would work, and it is just so good and welcome tonight.
