551 Tasting Notes
i got this sample from whatshesaid, and i think she got her sample from Sil. cuz it was in Sil’s baggies when i got it in my swap box. :) we are incestuous. or, our tea is incestuous. hah. in a cute way i swear.
speaking of which have you seen the movie cement garden? it’s pretty good from what i remember.
i need to see Catfish and Melancholia soon. and finish watching Top of the Lake. and probably watch teh most recent Mad men season too. oh and Holy Motors, i wanna see that too.
and catch up on my Inspector Lewis episodes.
oh. but really. really really. i recommend watching Red Riding. it’s 3 movies. but if you wanna just watch the first one you can do that too i guess.
i don’t really taste much of the flavors in the this tea. it’s fairly subtle. not bad, just mild is all.
gunpowder greens always look so awesome and i doubt i will be able to refrain from saying that everytime i have one. little shiny alien pellets.
i’ve been rather bored with green teas lately. but i keep tasting and trying. and this one is standing out for me! i suspect the slight smokey quality of gunpowders is what makes me like them so much more than the other main green types. thank you Shelley_Lorraine for the nice sample!
thank you for this yum sample moraiwe
i didn’t make notes and i suspect i just drank it all really really quickly cuz i liked it so much and now it is just a small fleeting memory in my floppy mind.
but i like all apple teas. and i like alcohol flavors. and i like caramel flavors. so i must have liked it tons.
so like i said, voila! it’s gone in a blink!
oh my goodness i have SO MANY notes to write i am so behind.
i’ve been feeling really unstable and chaotic lately. and i haven’t been running. and i haven’t been home much. and work is busy. so i’m having a hard time finding moments to write notes.
this is a joyful cup! very berry delicious. i get a strawberry currant type of blend.
Scheherazade, i’m really thankful for the generous sample you gave me cuz i like it lots and now i can have like almost 4 cups!
hey, it’s much like the North African Mint from davidstea! which i like lots. nom nom
hey, waitaminute, i think i am just noticing that steepster doesn’t bring your note to the top of the page if you update it the way it used to. !!!
aww man now all the swap peeps i shared with are gonna miss my notes. i’m gonna have to be much more diligent about updating and notating as i go. in real time.
on that note THANK YOU moraiwe for this soothing gingery minty wondercup!
whoo hooo i am really making progress on my sample box. idk why it makes me feel so good.
this tea? so good! more apple flavored than i expected! and less cinnamon than i expected. it’s like they read my mind :) and granted my wishes. my tea wishes.
thank you very much for this taste moraiwe. and i’m glad i have more too.
Thank you Shelley_Lorraine for sending me a mate.
and such an exotic one too!
my preference is always black tea. but my boyfriend’s and my best friend’s is always mate.
so i never buy it but i always wish i had so i can make it for them.
i love pistachio things. and i like coconut in almost any tea so far. so this is a winner. though i’m not sure it’s very pistachio, but it is limey! and great for the summer.
yay peach flavored things!
idk guys. i was also saving this one. cuz, peach oolong, hello yes please. i love peach. i love oolong. go tea!
but i’m pretty sure it has hibiscus in it. just a little. no biggie. however the rest of the tea is so mild that it really comes out. my brewed cup was pink. and not a brown or greenish tea color at all.
ARG! AGAIN it seems like i’m complaining! all my notes sound complainey to me today. i really don’t mean it. i’ll open with something even more positive, how’s that. okay.
it’s good for summer i’m sure. i mean that’s what summer is for right?! fruity fresh teas!
also maybe sun burns.
thank you for this cheery taste Sil !
aww man! i was kinda saving this one. looking forward to it. it smells nice and stuff. i was seeing summery stars when i decided to brew this. and and and it is so boring. drab and boring and like nothing :(
and now i see everyone else’s rating and i’m not alone i can tell. but kinda bummed. shame on me for having expectations i guess.
from the Traveling Tea Box.
had a little cup of this on my lunch break. i really like oolongs. and one of the other reviewers mentioned this was kinda ‘flat’ tasting. which i agree. not the most interesting or poetic oolong i’ve had. but i’m not complaining about it. naw. it’s nice. toasty and subtle.
thanks to Shelley_Lorraine for this cute and thoughtful sample.
