8570 Tasting Notes
Another from shmiracles her swap is what has both saved me in my epic quest to get to 140 for april and caused much of the issue in not being there already haha. The nice thing is, once i get to 140, i’ll still have a few of her samples left over to make a quick bump down a little lower while i continue to work on some of my older teas. :)
This may have sprinkles in it..but man this is a whole lot of lapsang in a cup. I’m not getting much in the way of anything else…but i’m ok with that because it’s kinda what i wanted. haha a little splash of maple and i’m a happy camper :)
edit: 3900 tasting notes…I think i’ll get to 4k before i hit my steepsterverary again haha. May not hit my goal of 2k teas tried though…
shmiracles tea fest! another one from that package. This is a nice enough cup of tea, but in this cup there is just too much cinnamon. it’s not that the cinnamon is overpowering or anything, but i feel like it’s hiding all the other wonderful things in this tea…like GINGER! :) i did enjoying drinking this one, but i also felt like there wasn’t much point to the other ingredients since they weren’t coming through like the cinnamon. Ah well, still another happy tea to have tried (and that gets me to 150 at least…10 more to go in 2 days heh)
thank you*shmiracles!* This is a really pleasant cup this morning. I don’t get much almond flavouring in this one but the cherry is quite nice. It’s somewhere between cherry candies and real cherry flavouring, and the assam in this one is cutting through the sweetness, preventing it from turning in to a cloying mess of blech. Thanks again for all these fun adagio blends shmiracles :)
Terri sent this my way and i was surprised that i hadn’t yet tried this one from Stacy. I’m not sure that this would be on my top ten tea list from stacy, but it is a unique tea for sure, and one that i wouldn’ turn down if offered. that’s mostly because darjeelings tend to be hit or miss for me. I really like the strength of this tea and the maltiness….and the aroma. for whatever reason, the aroma of this one is just a happy time for m this morning. I’ve been sitting here inhaling the cup and smiling every time haha thanks terri!!
Another tea from shmiracles. I was hoping for a bit of zing from the ginger but i’m finding instead that this is mostly just lapsang. It could just be that there wasn’t a lot of ginger in the bag or something. On the plus side, this isn’t a bad lapsang and with alittle bit of maple it smoothed out into a rather tasty cup. thanks shmiracles!
I figured since it’s likely i’ll be placing a verdant order in the near future for some old favourites that are back, i should have a bit more of this as i’ll probably need to order some more of this tea to hit free shipping threshold.
don’t get me wrong, that’s not a hardship since i love this tea but i also don’t want to just start stock piling it and have 10 oz in the house lol. last time i ordered 4oz and thankfully i’m down to my last 2 oz or so…maybe less.
