8271 Tasting Notes
I’m with MissB on this one…looks like an oolong. I figured today was the day to try this one since i’ve had all sorts of things i wouldn’t normally drink today. This one is a green/mint/blergamot blend….
brewed, this is much more mint than anything…but you can tell the blergfactor is there. mostly though…not something i would drink again. I appreciate the share though MissB!! it’s a lot of fun getting to try these teas out.
this one came my way stephanie via terri. I was a little hesitant about drinking this one. Flowers and i don’t really get along….esp not rose. That being said, once this one is brewed, it’s much more tea than rose. Still though, not something i really need in my life, though i’m always happy to try out random teas haha :) thanks ladies!!
this is really nice! Another one i wouldn’t have necessarily bought for myself but i’m glad i tried it out. I’d pick this one up for those times when i wanted a lemon tea…because this is CREAMY lemon…no false advertising here! the creaminess takes away from the intensity of the lemon and makes this more of a candy like tea. Not overly sweet, though i suppose you could add sweetner if you wanted to. I like this AND my other half, who is sick had some too and enjoyed it!
Another from the travelling tea box. The nice thing about travelling tea boxes is that it lets you try things you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself. This is a pretty decent green tea. Sadly since it’s not really something i drink a lot, i couldn’t tell you how it stacks up…but i enjoyed it a bunch! :)
yes i know…blergamot. freely chosen by yours truly. this doesn’t much taste like an earl grey to me. it’s there…if i focus on it, but for the most part this tastes more like a black breakfast like tea. it might be an age thing or the result of travelling around in the box, but this is nicely subdued and overall a really pleasant cup. there’s a bit of malt there and the brew is smooth. nice!
I pulled this one out of the box to try today because it’s been a while since i had it and i wanted to see if my first experience with this one was repeatable. Turns out, it was. This is an excellent tea from GTT and one that need to go on my wish list now for a future purchase! Honey notes are really tasty in this one!
mmm dexter was kind enough to rehome this one to me as it wasn’t her cup of tea and i seemed to enjoy it the last time i had it. I have to say…yes. Bumping the rating up a little because it really is a great smokey tea with maple. this plus maple syrup is really damn good and was perfect yesterday in the COLD! haha
Final Count yesterday: 166 (plus the travelling tea box)
