487 Tasting Notes
STILL not awake! So I decided to try this swap sample from BrewTEAlly Sweet :)
I’m not really sure what to make of this flavor. It is very toasty/roasty from the roasted mate/coffee beans but I’m not getting much else. That’s okay though. I am glad I got to try it but apparently I prefer my mate with a little something more to flavor it :)
I’m totally going to fall asleep during yoga class tonight, hahaha.
Made a cup of this and threw it over ice to drink with my lunch. It is delicious iced. I’m super dragging today, Zzzzzz… Tea to the rescue! :D
I’ve been so focused on going through my vast amount of swap samples, I haven’t had a tasty straight green tea in a while. I went straight for this one this morning and of course it does NOT disappoint! :)
I bought this tisane locally last night in bulk. It has a lot of lemongrass, some lemon peel, ginger, and licorice root.
It was very inexpensive and is a really good bedtime tea when I’m not in the mood for a chamomile based blend.
I like me some lemongrass! And the ginger is nice and spicy :)
kimquat is awesome for sending me a serving of this. I loves it and I haven’t had a chance to buy any yet! It is a perfect fall tea :)
I will be drinking cups of it all day while I work!
I’ve been drinking this one all day. Very, very nice! I love a good creamy, vegetal oolong :)
Thanks again to kimquat for the wonderful Mandala swap package. I know exactly what I’m going to be ordering now! :D
Now I just have to wait a couple weeks for my big fall art fair so I have TEA MONIES! WOOT
Made a double strong pot of this tea for me and my husband and a batch of this chai mix http://www.food.com/recipe/awesome-and-economical-chai-concentrate-34713
So we are having some AWESOME decaf chai together this evening! :D
Puerh is kind of a masculine tea isn’t it? Not in a bad way at all, and especially not with THIS puerh. Leather and tobacco notes and an earthy smoothness. This is like the George Clooney of puerhs. Even if you don’t particularly find him attractive you still GET why he’s considered so sexy. I can totally appreciate this puerh, and while I may never actually buy some, its definitely an excellent puerh! ;)
I’m still planning on buying some Special Dark. That one blew me away! So unique :)
OH and thanks again Kimquat!
Mmm, lychee! I’ve been very excited to try this one, thanks a bunch teamore for sending me a sample!
Like all of Butiki’s flavored teas, this is a very natural lychee flavor. It pairs perfectly with the sweet floral free oolong base. Very nice and I bet it would be equally wonderful iced!
I’d definitely consider buying this one when my fruity oolong stock gets low :)
