741 Tasting Notes

i got this sample from moraiwe! and i’ve been saving it a long time.
i figured it was gonna be quite the experience, so i wanted to enjoy it at the right moment.
but actually, it didn’t quite meet my expectations. i had expected a big one-two sweet and salty punch i guess. but heck the flavor still okay and i’ll totally drink it up. it’s just not as bold as i had hoped for hah.

then again, i know that level of boldness could have easily been mega gross. but eh, i’m a gamblin girl.

How much Candy Corn is too much Candy Corn?

okay okay what i meant to say is, i just ordered like $150 worth of tea from a few different companies cuz my stash is finally running low! it’s very exciting. i’ve learned so much about tea through all the awesome samples so many of you have shared with me over the year. So now that i have room for more tea in my cupboard, it’s great to be able to confidently buy teas i know i will enjoy immensely!

idk where this tea bag came from, lingering in the bottom of a drawer in the kitchen. but it was preserved nicely. and brews rather well.

drank Chai Black by Yogi Tea

it’s true, the scent you get when you tear open this tea bag’s packaging is pretty good. and the taste is pretty okay too.definitely not sucky considering it probably came from a grocery store.

i had a kinda zany morning. and i’m definitely too hyper to be around people. i’m gonna put on some modern classical and try to hideout.

this tea bag was in the back of our cupboard at home. no idea how long it was there or where it came from. i know this is probably obvious but basically there are so many chais that are so much better than this one. so just drink those, and leave this one at the supermarket ok? i mean, it’s not even awful, but really, just trust me on this.

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA

wow I have had this tea for so long. I think it was maybe the second order I got from davids tea. and it took me until now to drink it. all because of hibiscus.

someone else said this and it’s true, this is basically Forever Nuts from David’s Tea. which is a very popular tea. too sweet for me to really enjoy, but if offered i will always say yet to a cup.
herbal caramel teas always seem to do okay by be.

drank Rooibos Vanilla by Adagio Teas
741 tasting notes

i’m getting down to the point where i have almost no more sample or swap teas to try. and all the ones i do have left are herbal.
that is pretty amazing.
but all it means is that i can spend lots of time planning and day dreaming about what tea i’m gonna buy when i have the space!
i got this rooibos to use in a personalized sherlock inspired tea i made for myself.
it’s not offensive. it’s not really anything. i gulped it down and it was gone. sluurp.

i’m saving up the last few cups of all my sherlock teas just for the season 1 & 2 rewatch and the season 3 debut. :)

okay warning, i’m not really a flower tea kinda gal. i like chocolate and vanilla and cremes and mints and tend to stay away from lavender and rose petals. and his tea is chocolate and rose petals. so i rolled the dice.
and i really wish i liked this one more. it’s good. it’s fine. it’s totally a nice mellow chocolate. and i will definitely drink the whole tin. it’s just that it has a slight alcohol smell to me that i can’t entirely get past it. and i suspect it’s the rose petals.
but i’ll probably come around!
give me a couple weeks drinking this and i’ll be singing it’s glory.
but i still totally LOVE Mistie’s Blend and will buy it always and forever.

i drank this.
herbal tea is just another way to get hydrated for my saturday runs.

JustJames

because it’s chamomile, you couldn’t pay me….. (peppermint would be another story) BUT herbal tea is good for hydrating? very interesting!

Shmiracles

i knowwww i hate chamomile too. but i’ll try anything once. just once though.

keychange

Hate chamomile too.

Shmiracles

i always say, it tastes like soapy grass.

Starfevre

Technically all tea is hydrating, although the ones with no caffeine more so than otherwise.

umm is this even tea? it tastes like just lemon in water. that is colored very dark. whew. i might lose this tea on the way home. like into the river or something. i’m not a snob really but i don’t like hibiscus much at all and this tea isn’t even trying.
i have had an intensely pms shite day. like don’t ask me what i think about anything and don’t believe anything i say today. and also every song, even bad ones, sound so beautiful and also everybody should just stop moving and look out the window. just sayin.
screw dance class. i’m gonna go watch phil coulson instead.

Ellyn

Oy, I so understand those days. Feel better!

Shelley_Lorraine

of course it’s not a tea. The box says that it’s a seasoning! duh. Might go good on fish. . .

Shmiracles

!!
Shelley i laughed out loud for realz haha
Ellyn i was surprised at how nice it was to be reminded that others experience the same thing. so, thanks for relating! it helped!
