636 Tasting Notes
I am making this at work this morning. This is a really soft tea. Wisps of cinnamon, and vanilla and a light black base. I like it. It seems very fancy. I think the flavors blend very well together. For me I am left wanting just a little more umph in the base…. maybe a tad bit from a bit of added assam? A great tea to start the morning on a positive note.
This is my first order from the new 52 teas and I am way impressed! It will not be my last order. The flavor profiles that I keep seeing each week make me really long for a subscription. Maybe a treat this fall!
This was my morning cup at the B&B this morning. I am use to getting up at 4:30am with the youngest so my idea of sleeping in late is well not my friends idea of sleeping in. So I got up and enjoyed some quiet time, a book and this cup.
This is a very soft version of EG. I enjoyed this. Nothing mind blowing, but pretty damn good. I would love to get my hands on the loose leaf version some day to give it a try.
52teas ordered today and this was the first one I tore into. It is one of the teas that I was most excited about. The combination is so unique that I just had to try this. Rose, cinnamon, and vanilla. I mean, how amazing and fancy does that sound? So…… I enjoyed this but it was little thinner mouth feel than I was expecting. The flavor was good. I mostly got vanilla and cinnamon. I am taking this one to work to see how it holds up there……
My 52 Teas order arrived Saturday! Woot Woot. It arrived while I was away on a mommy getaway. Yep, my husband surprised me with a girls trip. 24 full hours away from the rugrats. I love them dearly, but it was so nice to be an adult and one of the girls again. It was a scavenger hunt that took us out to lunch, a winery, and to a B&B. Gotta love these husbands of ours!
So this tea….. OMG I love it! I have been rocking the chai this winter and this one was amazing. I loved the spices and the little something extra in here that made it taste very eggnog like. I wish I would have known I was going to love it so, I would have ordered the large size.
In Celebration of the upcoming A&D order I am drinking a cup of this. It also fits the dreary weather we are having here in KC today. This cup always amazes me. and always reminds me to never judge a tea 100% by the sent of the leaf. This is so much sweeter than the sniffer lets on.
In other news, my hot water spout at work was replaced. I have really come to like a lot of my black teas at a lower than normal temp….. now the water is coming out damn near boiling. I am going to have to readjust a tad bit.

Milk oolong is the tea that truly got me into loose leaf tea. A friend of mine brewed a cup of Gong Fu Tea’s milk oolong and I was hooked. I started looking into tea types, and started ordering things. I found steepster and Butiki and it just snowballed from their. So….. I love this tea. It is not only good, milky smooth, yummy, but every time I drink it, it brings happy memories.
