180 Tasting Notes

Trying to work my way through the mountain of samples I still have in my cupboard before I am “allowed” to buy more tea.

This one is interesting. I just don’t know what to make of the flavor… sometimes I like it, sometimes I just find it odd. I’ve already established that I don’t prefer Chinese black teas, but I can’t put my finger on why.

Do you think it might be the earthy quality most chinese black teas hold?

Probably. Some of the Chinese blacks I see described as “earthy” are almost… musty(?) to me, whereas other times I do find a likable earthy flavor. I’m not sure what the distinction is.

drank Raspberry by Adagio Teas

After all the trouble I had getting these flavored teas to taste right, my husband (who doesn’t drink tea, and have never made a cup in his life) managed to make a pretty good pot.

I taste the Ceylon pretty front and center today, which I hadn’t experienced before. The raspberry is just a mild, sweet, syrupy taste… not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Finally feeling well enough to have something caffeinated again. Made a pot with a bit of amber sugar, and finished Catching Fire this morning. I think this is my favorite tea.

Normally, herbal in the morning would be unheard of, but I’m not feeling too hot right now, and the caffeine would just make it worse. This is very soothing.

drank Irish Breakfast by Teavana

Feeling surprisingly groggy for a late morning on my day off. I was kind of wary of this when I first started buying tea, because strong black blends were a bit harsh for me… but, here I am drinking it without additives and thinking it’s just lovely.
