8487 Tasting Notes
starting the morning off slowly with breakfast and tea with my other half before he abandons me and puppy. We’ve got a winery event tonight, so that will be fun. Mostly i just need a rest day since i’ve gone hard with running, walking and biking this past week. Don’t want to injure myself. Had a lovely time meeting dexter yesterday, though apparently we had to yell to talk more than i thought as my throats a little sore this morning haha
wheeeee! Another one from VariaTEA that i finished up today. While this is no rootbeer float from david’s tea, i am happy with this one. I think? it might just be a little less creamy and a little less sweet. Which i could fix easily by adding sugar and cream/milk heh. thanks for this adventure variaTEA!

Buckwheat matcha latte
this is an interesting sample from VariaTEA. What i liked – the level of sweetness and the balance between the matcha taste and the buckwheat. I wasn’t a fan of the little balls of buckwheat floating in the drink. still though, i’d probably drink this again but i wouldn’t actively seek it out
Another one that i’ve hda a few times now before landing on a verdict. VariaTEA indulged me. What i like about this chai is that it’s simple…they give you the ability to make this without the traditional stove top format. I also like the spiciness of this one. It’s not terribly extreme and i could use a little more of a kick, but i like it’s uniqueness. I think though, that the star anise keeps this from being really great. It adds a sort of sweetness here that i don’t love. Still really fun to try and interesting!
so busy! I’ve had this a couple times now thanks to VariaTEA and i think i’m landed on not for me. It’s a little too floral, but mostly it’s just not…strong enough? bold enough? It’s like the quiet kid sitting at the back of the class…could be brilliant, might just be a lazy ass…but we won’t find out ‘cause they’re all the way back there doing who knows what lol.
