3217 Tasting Notes
Ahhh, this one’s so good! I think it reminds me a bit of DavidsTea’s Checkmate, although the two teas really aren’t super similar. Either way, I travel mugged this one today and drank it cool after my post-surgery nap (yeah, getting a mole removed totally counts as surgery!! It hurts and I got stitches and everything.)
At some point, I’m definitely getting 2 oz. of this one. Yummers. But for now, I just have a sample pack left (because oh yeah, this was a sipdown of the sample pack I got a few months back!)
I think that technically, there was a sipdown in here, as I’m pretty sure I’ve started on my new bag without finishing the old… haha. Gotta put em together like I did with the Eggnog tea!
Drank this one while watching the Superbowl/playing board games with my boy and his friends. Delicious delicious.
sigh Sad to say that I’m sipping this sample from Missy and Dylan down… this was a pretty tasty tea! I think it may have lost a bit of flavour during “storage”, but it’s still quite good, with light citrus and a hint of ginger.
Sipped down six teas “tonight” – feels like a bit of progress!
Another sipdown of a tea from Alphakitty! Entertainingly, I had pretty much the same impression of this one on my second go-round as my first, in spite of absolutely no recollection of the previous time I drank this! (I knew I had, just was misremembering it as being more of a straight TGY oolong).
It’s not bad, but a jasmine-flavoured oolong is not something I’d reach for…. ever, likely. Too much floral, and I’m not really one for floral. I’d much prefer a straight TGY or a milk oolong. So, it was neat to try a magnolia-scented tea, but not an experience I will likely feel the need to repeat!
Whoops, guess this is another one I’ve had for a while. Anyhow, my feelings on it don’t seem to have changed… in fact, I’m probably finding it even less interesting now. A fruity-ish green pretty much lacking in tea flavour. And I don’t think it’s age, or understeeping, or anything here, this is just not a very interesting tea.
Sadly this wasn’t a sipdown… I still have a cup or two left of this. Sil? Indigobloom? Raritea?
. My goodness, I am massively terrible at keeping teas straight after brewing…..
Anyhow! Thanks to momo for a generous sample of this one!!
This is a really delicious tea. All cupcakey, bakey goodness with a creamy, strawberry sweetness. I could be convinced that I’m drinking mushed up infused cupcakes, that’s for sure! Delicious.
So, to sipdown this tea from Azzrian as well, I definitely may have overleafed my cup a bit (2 tsp/8oz.), and it’s still pretty tasty. That’s four samples successfully knocked out of my stash tonight, and I suspect it will be more… once the raging party going on downstairs for my roomie’s birthday has migrated over to one of the bars downtown, and I can get food and tea refills without drunk people in my way…
You know, I wish I had bought a package of this one, in retrospect. I’m loving the creaminess, and this would be great to take to work in my travel mug, what with the fruitiness and creaminess, and with a properly-timed infusion, smooth black base. There’s just a hiiiint of fakey/plastic-y flavour, which for all I know could be from the plastic baggie it has sat in for months, but other than that, it’s delicious.
Thanks again for this sample, Azzrian! And yep, this is another sipdown :D
