177 Tasting Notes

I meant to try it on its own but I forgot. I made concentrated amounts and added it to 7up. Kind of like a cherry limeade and reminded me how much I once liked cherry 7up that I forgot all about. My son liked it also, why wouldn’t he.

Last year I got a sample of this and I was not impressed but some where along the way of finishing the sample I realized I liked it cold. I bought this to ice during the summer and I’m glad I did. It is my favorite way to drink it. creamy mint that reminds me a little of dinner mints. I’f I get this again I think I will wait for it to go on discount since I don’t think I will want it for the intended season but I kind of hope I get a sample to have in December some how for sentimental reasons.

I got a sample size of this just for my son because he loves pineapple. Dry it smells like sweet candied pineapples. Iced, I forgot to smell it-but it was just tart enough for my son to enjoy with a light sweetness that I did not feel the need to add sugar for myself. My son really enjoyed it and said it tasted fruity, I even enjoyed it because it was very refreshing and not too tart. I think I will get more sometime.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 10 g 12 OZ / 354 ML

I still have a hard time not associating plain tea with iced tea. This may be my first oolong? 1st steep reminded me of hot iced tea but a little roasted, 2nd and 3rd steep I got more of the honey with it.

Thank you so so much MissB this was on my wishlist and one of the last teas sent in your mystery pack that I really enjoyed. It only came to my attention and made it to my wishlist because of your reviews.

January of this year all I could think about was DAVIDsTEA and I messaged my cousin who lives in Chicago how lucky he was. He responded back “I don’t know a David in Chicago and i don’t know that I’ve had his tea!” Later in the conversation he let me know about this company my response (I looked it up) “I never heard of that place, it seems a little fancier than Davids, I bet it is good since they have stores all over the world.” He is coming to visit in October and I hope I can get him to bring me some more of this tea because it would make it extra special.

The tea: Creamy Lemon not the pucker your mouth tart that I don’t personally like. This is just a light comforting creamy tang I wound maybe find in a lemon cookie or lemon poppy seed muffins.

Cheri

This tea has a really nice buttermilk tang to it that I love.

T&C TTB 22/23

When I had this TTB I was about to make a H&S order and felt it was the perfect time to try this before buying it. It was good, so I bought some. I kept waiting for the Queen to speak to me before writing a note but she has not and it is almost gone. All I can say is I’ve enjoyed it in the mornings when I’m looking for caffeine and taste good with and without milk. I may order it again sometime, not sure.

Thank you so much keychange for the giant amount you shared with me. I was surprised to find both my husband and I enjoyed it and almost finished with in the first week I had it. I’m already pre planning Black Friday and I may get more of this then. I really enjoyed the apple flavor.

Bio

I feel I have lost part of my identity.
I was addicted to coffee until I got sick Dec 1 and since then I have had 3 6 cups of coffee(I lost count but it’s not everyday and I don’t enjoy it like I once did). Now all I can think about is tea. I do not know if this is a phase or not but I’m enjoying it.

I’m having fun trying dessert teas right now. It has helped me eat less without even trying and I have lost a few unwanted pounds which surprised me during this past holiday season.

I love Earl Grey, Earl Grey Cream, Vanilla black teas. I like straight blacks I just don’t know how to describe them yet. I have a hard enough time describing flavored teas.

Please don’t pay attention to my notes, my taste changes all the time and sometimes if I only try something once I don’t always get the opportunity for it to grow on me or understand it better.

Maybe this is weird, one of the reasons I do tasting notes is to practice writing. I would like to go back to school before my school money expires and I regret it but I’m not ready yet.

Steepsters is the best community!
I love everyone here :)

I’m a stay at home mom/wife most of the time and work part-time at a local coffee shop.

I’m looking into knitting just so I can make cozy for my Timolino.
