8954 Tasting Notes
i had high hopes for this one given some of lupicia’s other flavoured teas. turns out this one isn’t bad, but it’s not nearly as orange as i want it to be….however that seems to be the case with all the orange teas i have haha. this one isn’t bad…there’s none of that weird woodsy rooibos taste that i don’t like in a rooibos, but you still get a hint of the rooibos in the background. over all not bad. i’ll have to see if future steepings can make this a little more orange intense with a little tweaking.
Final count: 224 (I doubt I can get through 24 tomorrow but hey, you never know…)
i dind’t realize that i’d had this one before until i looked at the tasting notes for this one. i have to say that this time around, i’m find it less appealing. theres something about the smell that is just turning me off, though to be fair it might just be that whole being sick factor. i was looking for something with a little kick to it, but tonight this is just feeling weak and sweet. weirdness. chalking it up to not being well.
(oh thanks for sending this my way roswell strange!)
Roswell strange sent this one my way and i was a little excited to drink it, especially after she corrected my cupboard to get the right tea in to it… turns out i like this one a lot. while the banana tea from Rivertea is basically liquid banana bread – this one is a little less sweet and slightly less intensely banana. i attribute that to the chocolate. still not a huge fan of the weird looking tea is produces, but i did enjoy this a lot. and in the grand scheme of teas, i’d probably be able to drink this one more often than the river tea one because of the fact that it’s a little more laid back. :)
yay! tea from roswell strange and VariaTEA this was one of two? overlaps between the girls when they both sent me teas…i figure that’s pretty good since i know how much sharing the two of them do :) i liked this one a lot…though i can’t for the life of me remember what i liked about it because my other half came home and tucked me in to bed and i fell asleep. clearly i needed it..i only ever nap when i’m not well. soooo thanks for sending me this one. i’d drink it again lol
this tea was on my wishlist and was sent to me by boychik man i have to say, i wish this was in loose leaf form. I am not a fan of teabags even though i tolerate them sometimes. I am, however, a fan of this tea! it’s a really nice blend of toasty, malty, sweet, earthy deliciousness. haha just a really nice cup of tea. if only it were in loose leaf form! thanks a ton for sharing with me boychik!
saw this in the dashboard and figured that meant it was as good an excuse sa any to finish it off today. So many teas to drink up! We were supposed to go play board games this afternoon at our friends place – it’s a monthly thing, but i am sick. I think it’s my body trying to tell me i need a weekend to slow down. The down side? so much to do around the house and i’m soooo slow at it because i’m not feeling well. Upside? I can stay at home all day in my pj’s – drinking tea, puttering and reading/watching tv. This tea? while really tasty, has waned a little over the few times i’ve had it. Likely not a reorder since there are others i prefer so much more from stacy. that being said, i’d drink this anytime if someone offered and have a grand time doing it!
psssst…. i like this pineapple oolong more haha. However, the REASON i like it more is because there are real pineapple bits in here which give this a more intense pineapple taste. While the other version is creamy pineapple….this one is PINEAPPLE YO! I get a bit more of the green oolong taste in this cup but because of the intense pineapple taste, it doesn’t bother me in the least. such a great tea…
So i finally got my order of this one in from Lupicia and figured i could do my mini comparison against the last of the flowery pineapple oolong that i have from stacy. Though i was fairly certain which one would end up being my favourite, i wanted to try again because my taste HAVE changed over the course of the year or so since i last had this one AND because what the hell :)
This oolong is recommended brewing at boiling temperature – SO I DID I T ANNA! it also has coconut added to it, which i generally don’t like, but don’t recall it being a weird note in this tea the last time i had it.
Brewed up, this is a very light, pineapple tea. I can detect the coconut under ths pineapple notes in this one, but rather than screaming COCONUT! they just sort of give this tea a creamy sort of flavour to it. On the whole, i am bumping my rating up on this one as it’s a much more tasty treat since i last had it.
