8876 Tasting Notes

Free sample from my Necessiteas order. Not adding this to my cupboard since it’s off to VariaTea since she’s always giving me samples of things :D This one was very much sort of a coconut black tea, with a little sweetness to smooth things out and blend the tea. It’s not quite truffle for me, since the chocolate truffles i occasionally indulge in, are just that…serious indulgences. i get a chocolate vibe from this but it’s faint. Overall not a bad tea, enjoyed drinking it but i don’t need more of it in my cupboard :)

Had a cup of this today to work on some samples. Need to remember to cold brew the rest of this.

this.smells.amazing. I think i’ve somehow made it my mission to find the perfect orange creamsicle tea. This one is pretty decent. I wish there were less marshmallows because even though i like them – they make this feel more like orange marshmallo tea instead of creamsicle. Again, like pineapple mimosa, i preferred the cooled brew of this over the hot, though both weren’t half bad. I’ll need to add a tiny bit of sguar to the next cup i make to see if that makes the orange flavour pop more :)

drank Pineapple Mimosa by The NecessiTeas
8876 tasting notes

Let me tell you, the dry aroma of this one is BOOZE lol. Not really sure why i got this one – i hate champagne. However i love a good pineapple and fruit/herbal teas were few in my cupboard at the time. Brewed up, the alchol/champagne is not nearly as strong as the aroma. I’m not getting a lot of pineapple, but i AM feeling the mimosa aspect. I actually preferred this one more after it had cooled down significantly. I had it hot, then went for a run for 30 mins while it cooled down heh. Want to play with this a bit more before i land on a final verdict but so far, not bad.

I think i’m going to play with this one some more. it’s not as chcoolatey as i want it, but i can always add cocao nibs. it IS slightly smokey, sweet and marshmallowey. I think i’ll have fun with this one heh

VariaTEA shared this one with me and i’ve since purchased it for myself. Stupidly great sale the other day even with the exchange means i have an abundance of tea now that was super cheap – which is just what i want when i pick up flavoured blends heh. Sometimes this one comes across as a little maple-y for me, sometimes it’s much more krispy treat. I like that this is a black version versus the usual genmaicha blends (though i love those too!!!).

Another one from this morning – always trying to spend a little time on my older teas or my puerh. Things that i actually want to spend time focusing on, versus work tea drinking where my focus is often lost.

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.
