345 Tasting Notes

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA
345 tasting notes

Thanks to lizeepea for sending me this one. I returned home from Guatemala to find this one in my mailbox. I am a fan of Guayusa that I have tried and this one is good too. I didn’t pick up much chocolate in it but the fruit is good and doe not overpower the tea. Mmmmm I’m thinking I might have to order from Davids on the next tea order.

I haven’t had it in a while, but I don’t think there is supposed to be chocolate in it?

Uniquity

At least it’s less disappointing that way! : )

drank English Breakfast by Argo Tea
345 tasting notes

So on my flight schedule yesterday was Guatemala City to Houston. Houston to Chicago. Chicago back to Akron/Canton. Two hour layover at O’Hare and I need something to eat. Before I settled on the golden arches I found Argo. I love the concept of this place and wish there were more places like it in Ohio. So I order the English Breakfast and the Mate poached turkey sandwich. The tea is not bad your basic English Breakfast tea. Malty and a little bit of that Keemun kick. The sandwich though fabulous! I liked it better than the tea.

So much to get done today. Tomorrow I’m leaving on a mission trip to Guatemala for a few days. Thank you Janefan for this one. I always try a tea once before I review it to allow my palette to adjust to the tea. So the first cup was lighter. I didn’t get any smokiness really. It was like an Assam. Then when it cooled there were some honey notes like a Darjeeling maybe. This morning though when I brewed it was all Yunnan. A strong Yunnan black aroma, and on the drive to work. Good morning smokey. Yeah this is a really good blend. I’m bummed I waited to pull the trigger on it before it sold out.

drank Florence by Harney & Sons
345 tasting notes

“Giuchie, Giuchie, ya ya dada
Giuchie, Giuchie, ya ya here
Mocha Chocalata ya ya
Creole lady Marmalade”
Mostly the Mocha Chocalata ya ya. This tea has been taunting me for months. Thanks to Amy Oh I am getting to try the legend that is Florence. Flo your dry leaf smells amazing that’s for sure. Mais, Je ne vais pas dormir avec toi ce soir. The chocolate/hazelnut aroma is there but it doesn’t shine through in the taste. It’s very similar to Stash’s chocolate hazelnut decaf. It is still a really good tea I just don’t find it to be a mind blowing tea experience.

Thanks again to Brandy3392 So I like chocolate. I like black tea. I love pu-erh. However I’m not sure why this is called Bolder Breakfast. I think the pu-erh actually smooths it out. The chocolate is not very prevalent but that’s okay. I’m really digging this one. I think it reminds me more of one of my favorite teas from Dr. Tea. Scrooge’s blend the flavor is almost and exact mimic. When Mr. Scrooge gets low I’m glad there is a tea to replace it for me.

This was offered at a baby shower my wife and I went to over the weekend. I’ve never had if before so…why not. I should of stayed with not. I like the effort but the whatever else they ad to the mate and black tea just doesn’t work. It’s like drinking a medicated balm. I know not to put this one in the cupboard.

A little extra from my swap with Mercuryhime. I opened the swap package and whoa something smells good. So yesterday we were cleaning up the kitchen and I was getting teas into a box. I smelled that one again and thought hmmmm cotton candy!. My wife took a whiff and said I should let my daughter smell. She thought it smelled like cotton candy too. Then she skipped into the kitchen and asked if we could try some. So I decided to make it iced in my Bodum ceylon. Added a scoop of sugar to it cause I’m sure that’s why the kiddo didn’t like the previous iced offering that I spent 20 dollars on at Teavana and the kid said she didn’t like it afterwards. This is definitely candy like. Pretty good and not terribly sweet with the sugar and the kiddo like it. Win!

Mercuryhime

Glad you enjoyed. It did seem more of a candy tea, which was why I wasn’t too fond of it. I should try serving it go kids too!

Chicken breast in a baking dish with a mixture of lapsang, basil, and rosemary(steeped). It was fabulous. My wife and daughter loved it.
