620 Tasting Notes
I’m drinking a bunch of old favourites lately. Not so much trying new stuff. Though I totally have lots of new stuff to try!
I don’t like the pressure of feeling like I HAVE to write a review everytime I drink a cup of tea. Sometimes I just want to enjoy my tea. Though admittedly it’s always nice to check back and see if I’ve had something before, because lawd knows my memory isn’t what it used to be!
I still love this tea. It’s one I would restock. I drink it blasphemy style with milk (because supposedly the Darjeeling Gods get angry when you mix their tea with milk)……….. but it works for me!
Janelle sent me a sample of this, it’s a Butiki tea that I sadly never got the chance to try when it was actually still available.
I REALLY enjoyed it. I have enough left for another cup, and it’s been awhile since I had it, so this review is basically to say that I liked this tea, which I can never get again, and you can’t get it either. But, I liked it.
It was very tasty, the flavour combo was yum.
I’ll be back with more descriptive words after Round 2, whenever that is.
Had some of this last night. It’s still good. Not necessarily 95 good, like my previous rating… but very good. I find there’s a taste that’s slightly OFF, a bit bleachy maybe?? Not sure which flavour my tongue is interpretting that way. I have a literal crap ton of this tea. I hope it lasts awhile in my tin!!
A bit behind on my reviews. Alas, sometimes I go through phases where I want to drink lots of tea without talking about it :)
This one was sent my way from the ever lovely Miss B via Sil…. Huge thanks to you both!
I was very interested in trying this, my obsession with trying ALL THE French teas and ALL the vanilla teas!
Sadly, now that I’ve had WP Golden Orchid and also Tippy’s “Not So Vanilla”, both made with real vanilla beans…. Anything less seems uncivilized.
I enjoyed drinking this one, but didn’t find it vanilla-y enough for me. And I really didn’t get too much chocolate at all! Which isn’t bad because me and chocolate flavoured teas don’t usually mix.
If I had had the foresight to check this page first, I would’ve thought to add some sugar, like Bonny did to bring out the dessert aspect.
Anyhow, I’m feeling very lucky to have had the opportunity to try a fancy French tea!! :)
Yeahhhhhhhh… had this a few more times, and I think I might even like it more than my other TTC love – Yuchi Wild Mountain Black.
It smells SO amazing, like raisins and honey and malt. And the taste is equally as potent! It never ceases to blow my mind how something this flavourful and delicious just came out of the ground at some point.
When I think about which tea I want at night, TTC is winning, lately. I am trying to force myself to drink other teas to knock my cupboard down some in order to justify the giant TTC order I’d love to place one day.
Dreams do come true!
Watch me… I’m about to rate this………… 100.
THE PERFECT TEA. (for me)
Received a hefty sample of this from Dexter… normally I am not a chai person, I rarely crave it. But I was interested in trying this, because I know I love the base tea.
I ended up really impressed, I think this is actually the first chai I would buy! (Except a few fandom blends from Adagio which I surprisingly ended up enjoying)
The natural chocolate notes in the tea really work well with the natural spices used. It just struck me as really fresh and tasty, and pure tasting, if that makes any sense. Nothing fake about this one!
Thank you for sharing, Dexter.
One I never would have ordered, but ended up truly enjoying!
