329 Tasting Notes
Day #11 of tea!
Another new one for me! The smell on this one was amazing – I do love a good banana nut bread (though preferably also with chocolate, lol).
My biggest beef with this, unfortunately, is that it is very, very heavy – and there wasn’t enough leaf in my 10g sample for two solid cups (vital, since I share the tea of the days with my mother, and she got to this one first). As a result, my cup was a lot weaker than I had hoped for, and I steeped this for a loooooong time. The flavour was good, but weak.
If I were to get this one again, I’d obviously have to buy more to get it to the strength I want, but I don’t know if it would be worth it for the amount of tea I would get. Pity.
Day #10 of tea!
Hurrah, finally a new one. A plain oolong, at that. I don’t get to have these very often. This one’s good, I have to say. Not my favourite (and I still like plain black teas better), but there’s a bit of a fruity taste with this, which I wasn’t expecting. Of course, it’s limited edition, so I shouldn’t get used to it, haha.
Day #5 of tea!
I reviewed this already, but I’m going to do it again, just to be consistent, haha. This is one of the few teas I’ve really got to watch the steep time with, as I have had some bad experiences with pu’erh in that regard before. I steep this for 5-ish minutes, add a splash of milk and mmmm, it’s the perfect treat on a snowy Saturday afternoon. I’ve still got some in my stash, but I may have to pick more up before the winter collection goes away, as it’s one of the few chocolate-based teas I like.
Day #4 of tea!
Finally, a black tea, haha. This one is a classic DT offering I think, and a solid flavoured chai. It isn’t my favourite, and I don’t go gaga over it when it shows up in the fall collection, but I do enjoy a mug of it every now and again . Clearly, since I saved some of my stash to add to the advent calendar.
Day #3 of tea!
Another one I haven’t had in a while. It’s funny, because I think I only put 4 or 5 greens in my advent, and I’ve already had 2 of them, haha. This one is kind of similar to Movie Night, but I think I like this one a shade better. It’s probably the nuts. This is one I think I would repurchase, so when my stash gets alittle lower, this is definitely in contention.
Day #2 of tea!
I have had this one exactly once before today, haha. I picked this one because of the strawberry, though there’s quite a lot going on with the taste. Possibly due to the kombucha, which I’m not a huge fan of. I do like the berry taste, but it got weird as it cooled, so if I were to get this one again, I have to remember to keep it hot.
