739 Tasting Notes
i keep drinking this one and i WANT to love it so much because it is the tea that was recommended to me and the reason i placed my Tea Guys order in the first place. and it has all these great elements that i should be enticed by. but for some reason it doesn’t excite me. OBVIOUSLY i need to drink it with milk and sugar next time, like a proper cake!
well this tea has chamomile and rose buds in it. and mostly i got it for my sister to enjoy cuz those are things she likes. but i had this last night right before and after a long hot shower. and it was nice!
i could taste the yummy parts like fennel and lemongrass.
and besides, i like to change it up.
The Best Tea Thing I Own.
i love it so much i own multiples!
and they are the most beautiful things ever. http://instagram.com/p/WurPoDIc1x/
i am a sipper. and i am easily distracted. and with a timolino my tea doesn’t go to waste.
also now i can make tea for my friend when we meet at the movies.
or i can have multiple teas with me for an all night hangout with friends.
it’s just perfect.
i opened this timolino to let it start to cool down, and as i finished the previous cup of another tea all I could smell was warm vibrant coconut.
i’m SO GLAD i bought this. i stood there at the counter hemming and hawing about whether i should spend the money. but once i get the tea home i’m always glad i have it and don’t think a bit about the money.
i’ll write more notes later. probably tomorrow when i drink it again. i just have too much to get done today is all.
i’ll obviously have to compare it to the davidstea version once i get time to taste that one.
i love lemon teas. and Della Terra sent this sample along with my last order so i was jazzed to try it.
it didn’t do much for me. but i feel kinda certain that it was me and not the tea. or maybe i missed the shinny tartness in the lemon. or maybe i should have added milk to enhance the cakeyness. or maybe i should have used more leaf. or maybe i could have tried it iced. or waited until summer. but despite all i maybe could have done differently, for some strange reason i wasn’t interested in trying again. and i just gave it to my sister. because i love my sister. and my sister loves tea. and she needed more herbals.
this is a tea i would never buy because i don’t eat banana-flavored anything. i only eat bananas.
but great that Davids sent me one of their little sample pouches cuz now i can try it despite my banana feelings! and i always wanna try a new tea. no matter what i suspect i MIGHT think of it i still ALWAYS wanna try it once.
but alas, yes, i mean, it DOES taste like banana. and not really fake tasting either. almost like they squeezed a banana’s juice out. and that is a big compliment coming from me :) so if you like bananas that aren’t bananas, you should totally buy this!
vegetal ! like rah rah vegetal! like fresh rain and a freshly picked garden. like a cucumber salad or wheatgrass shots after a great run.
and it’s slightly naturally sweet too.
so glad i got this early on and don’t know why it’s not already gone. though i’m glad it’s not because it will be perfect for spring. the bright green leaves and cloudy lime colored liquor will make the sun seem just a little warmer.
for lunch today i went and took and short ABS class. also i’m lazily attempting Intermittent Fasting. no doubt i’ll talk about it too much on here. it’s what i do.
goddamn it i can’t believe i just steeped this for 9 min :(
am i right that it would be kinda respectable to dump some out and add water until it’s not bitter? that’s a thing that people do?
…. WAIT WAIT wait. how is it possible that this tea isn’t horribly bitter?!?!?!
i didn’t add water or anything and sure it may not be the best steep of this tea but i swear i am amazed that i can drink it and it’s only slightly more potent than i would like. after 9 minutes!!! how is that even possible?!
this accidental power steep has kinda given me a whole new level of appreciation for this tea. grace under pressure. i’m gonna drink much more of you caramel! cuz now that i’ve seen your inner beauty, i understand you much more.
