135 tasting notes

This smells and tastes exactly as I imagined it! And it is lovely. I steeped for 2:30 and it is nicely flavoured without being bitter at all. I need to try these parameters with sun and cloud mist to see if it eliminates the slight bitterness I got at a 3 min steep.

This was just the thing for me tonight. I had a bit of a tummy ache after too many sour gummies (my weakness!) and spearmint, green tea and marshmallow root sounded perfect. Normally I would have been tempted to add a 1/2 tsp of sugar, but I am drinking it plain tonight because of my aforementioned overindulgence. It has a nice natural sweetness from the spearmint, and a really nice overall light and airy feeling to it. I don’t usually love mint, but it’s really well balanced in this blend.

I’m so glad to be all caught up with my tasting notes for 12 teas! Now on to backlogging a few things I’ve tried over the past couple of weeks.

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
