693 Tasting Notes

Oof. Rushing back to work this morning after my weekend out of town and I’m really dragging. A hot matchaccino latte seemed like the easiest option before work. I know exactly how long to microwave the milk to get it just warm enough and I use half a scoop of mix and whip it up with a small french wisk. Tasty and fast and easy! rushes off

Courtney

How much it half a scoop? I want to try this one with the wee bit of MATCHAccino I have left :)

keychange

And how long do you put it in the microwave?

Stephanie

Courtney- I think I used about a rounded half tablespoon. I don’t like it full strength because it is a bit too sweet for my tastes :)

Keychange- My microwave is pretty strong- 1 minute and 20 seconds gets it drinkably warm but not simmering which I think would burn the matcha!

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

Another tea from my Chicago friend’s stash that I got to try today. Such a strange choice for a white tea base! Very very cookie dough like flavor though. I was shocked! I had this unsweetened but with some sugar it would be a hella good desserty treat.

In other news I got to visit my first Adagio tea store and Teavana store. I was impressed with Teavana because I got offered and drank 4 tiny free samples while I was in there! Amazingly enough I purchased nothing from either place. So much fun to visit though! Lots of pretty tea pots :)

I am up in Chicago this weekend visiting a good buddy of mine. She is into tea too, and actually worked at a David’s store as a seasonal worker last winter. So I brought her a bunch of stuff from my tea stash and I’m raiding her stash for breakfast :)

This tea did not impress me that much, heh. My fault for selecting a bagged tea :)

My first Mariage Freres tea! Thanks so much Shelley_Lorraine for the sample!

This tea has a wonderful soft natural apple and almond flavor, with a hint of frosting or pastry floating around in the background. The base tea is mild but pleasant and unobtrusive. This is very enjoyable! Especially for those of us that like our tea to taste like a bakery treat sometimes :D

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Wow! The ultimate dessert tea?

Terri HarpLady

This one sounds tasty!

Stephanie

Not my personal ultimate dessert tea, BrewTEAlly Sweet but a very nice one! :)

Shelley_Lorraine

Sil

Shelley….hahaha I just wish they hadn’t been limited editions. I want them to come. Back..

Shelley_Lorraine

best that way if they are, b/c temptation to spend more on shipping than on the tea is too high :)

Terri HarpLady

maybe we can get ysaurella to buy some & send it to us ?

Sil

Terri – pretty sure it’s gone now…my parents were having a really hard time trying to find The tin they managed to bring back for me

drank Tamarind Pop by Butiki Teas
693 tasting notes

Thank you so much Shelley_Lorraine for sending me some of this tea in a swap!

I’ve always wanted to try this tea. My husband and I cook a lot of southeast asian food so I’m familiar with tamarind and a big fan of the flavor. Of course, the base tea pairs perfectly with the tamarind! Slightly malty and sweet. I don’t think it needs any sugar. This one is definitely going on my shopping list! :D

Sad because this leafhopper tea is super tasty! But also not sad because my cupboard is about to explode! New teas on the way soon and its already almost at max capacity! Eep!

Most of the teas I drank yesterday were sorta disappointing so I’ve decided that today I’m drinking only teas I KNOW I like :)

Starting with something green from Laoshan seemed entirely appropriate!

Sil

good plan! :)

Blend Club Box sip down!

This tea was probably my favorite out of October’s bunch. All of them had some anise-like flavors that didn’t really agree with me (I HATE licorice)

Hoping this months blends are more to my liking :)
