8269 Tasting Notes
this was one of my last teas from last night… I’m trying not to run through all my herbals since i’m on tea hiatus, but at the same time, i love those evening cups of tea that are delicious that i can enjoy without worrying if THIS TIME, the caffeine will affect me…since it doesn’t always. Still love this one after however many zillion times i’ve had it….need the longer steeps to really make it slightly spicy AND citrusy all at the same time!
This one from stacy is really interesting. I’m not sure where i land with this one…. it’s coconut and strawberry…with a bit of a nuttiness. I am enjoying this one a bunch…but i think it falls into the same spectrum as the pumpkin cheesecake one…i’ll drink it, and enjoy drinking it…but i don’t love it like it’s out of this world amazing and would trade for the few that i DO love out of this world..if that makes sense :) Still though, a really nice cup.
this tea has made me super sad. I love stacy’s bana flavour..and yet with this one i’m getting awhole lot of oolong..with only an after taste of banana…. and while there’s a bit of a sweetness there…it isn’t butterscotch to me…or walnut. le sigh. At least someone else out there will love this i’m sure!
mmmm tasty tea from Dexter Since this year will be the year of Canadian companies…who let you buy in CANADIAN DOLLARS thank you very much, we’re trying to get through as many samples of teas as possible from various companies. this one is a deliciously tasty black tea. it’s a little floral like but it’s also sweet..not honey leafhopper sweet, but still sweet. This is a tea that is lighter…but not lacking in flavour. Overall another enjoyable tea from Camelia!
Another share from cavocorax which was great because it let me NOT place an order with tippy teas, and still get a chance to try out a couple. Now i know that an order will be placed in future…once i get my cupboard under control! This is a relatively nice black tea. Nothing crazy out of this world, but it’s nice and smooth, with a little bit of heft to it so that it’s not on the wimpy side of things. There’s a little bit of maltiness here but not overwhemlingly enough for me to be like WOAH MALT TEA! :) A nice afternoon cup!
i love this. I don’t get a lot of the pistachio toffee flavour but the orange in this is FANTABULOUS! I didn’t add any sort of sweetner to this and the orange just made me melt. I confess i drank most of this cold because it sat while i was doing some things, but i have high hopes for this hot, with just a teeeeny bit of sweetner!
opted to try this one today. I’ve had a few yellow teas before and only one ever knocked my socks off. I’ve been searching for a similar one ever since. This one is pretty good. It’s got a delicious fresh and juicy flavour to it, while not falling into that trap of tasting like a green tea. Yep..even as this one cooled, it was just really tasty and delicious! I’ll likely pick this one up again since it’s the closest i’ve come to finding that one yellow tea i loved.
bumping the rating up on this one as when i ordered i didn’t realise i’d had a sample of this one from cookies and today it was like BAM HAPPY MOUTH! lol this will be a reorder for sure…it was just the perfect tea today… sharing the rest with tea friends since i have had it before and can wait on reordering..
man…last tea of the evening…so not fair…everyone else is getting their mystery boxes from butiki and mine still isn’t even in canada. i swear the post office hates me! still loving this one, though tonight i accidentally brewed it longer than 2 mins…so it’s spicy! even with honey….but soooooo good!
Final Count: 156 (with like 30-60 on their way…. ugh!)
