8570 Tasting Notes

This is an interesting one. first off…the initial sip was grilled…i almost wanted to say grilled pineapple…but not quite..it was grilled something. then as the sip hits the banana shows up. Not sure that there’s really a spiced factor going on….but i am really enjoying the grilled banana of this. As usual, i want a bit more banana, but this is tasty and unique.

took this one with me to work today – brewed in water with just a little milk added after the fact. Not as delicious as stove top version, but still a great cup for a rainy toronto day

nope-nope-itty nope nope. unlike the other EG – this one is a little too strong in the blerg for me. I LOVE the maple/vanilla….and then the BLERG hits..and it’s all NOPE for me haha. however, if blerg is your thing – this should be a really nice one for you :) (obviously not rating since i know blerg and i are not friends)

Final Count: 54

I have this too and have yet to bring myself to try it. I got it with my last order and the bag it’s in smells a bit like some of the other samples so I may have flavor contamination with this sample

Sil

you might like it…it’s probably not sa bad as my post makes it seem..but compared to earl bay..it’s blerg…whereas earl bay is more..lemoney

Noms. I understand the hype on this one. This is a really tasty peach tea. I’ve been off peach for a while but this didn’t set that “tired of peach” off in my brain. Instead i found myself at the bottom of the cup before i realised it. it’s smooth…i really like the base in this one and how it works with the peach. This is not your peach drink sort of tea..this is nice peach :)

Oh nice, I haven’t been crazy over peach in tea so it’s great to hear it stands out from the crowd.

Sil

yeah this one is really nice. Not sure it’s enough for me to want to go buy a bunch since i’m still “off” peach teas but i’d revisit this one

Fjellrev

Would you say it’s a realistic peach flavour? I think my issue is that most peach teas taste like artificial juice crystals to me.

Sil

mmm probably need kittenna or variaTEA or Evol to weigh in on that. i feel like it’s closer…

drank Lemon Cake Assam by A Quarter to Tea

Tried this one out today – have a bit left for another cup. Initial impressions, good lemon creamy sort of blend. I’d be interested in seeing what adding a little sugar to this would do. Not in love with it enough to buy a wackload more, but still enjoyable.

drank Earl Bay Earl Grey by A Quarter to Tea
8570 tasting notes

yes. SIL bought a couple earl grey’s…willingly. This one is not so bad. I suspect it’s the vanilla that’s smoothing out the blergamot for me. So it’s more lemoney than blergy. I still wouldn’t need to keep this in my cupboard or anything, but i drank the entire cup and it was decent :) not rating this sine i’m not an EG fan…but MY rating would likely be about a 70.

CrowKettle

I thought this one wasn’t bad either; you can almost not tell it’s an Earl variety! :P

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
