94 Tasting Notes
Took this to my meeting tonight. I wasn’t sure from the smell if it was what I wanted tonight but wanted to give something new a try. This was great. It was a few hours ago I had it so I can’t remember specifics but I did really enjoy it and so did the 3 people that smelled it and had to try it even before I had a chance to. Can’t wait to have this again, maybe tomorrow and I will elaborate on this review.
Today was my birthday and I mentioned to my 3 year old that I wanted breakfast in bed knowing he would tell my husband. Well after awhile they brought up my toast and to my surprise tea. Hubby used to make me tea all the time but since I do loose leaf tea now he is almost afraid to make it. Well for my birthday today he bit the bullet and made me a great one. He said the choices were overwhelming so he just stuck his hand in the container of little foil bags and pulled out this one. I was a little worried because I didn’t know how long he steeped it for or anything but it was wonderful. I normally have this one as a night time drink when I am having a sugar craving but it was wonderful as a morning tea. I will have to do this again some day. And now maybe he will make teas for me more often.
Finally having day 8 from my advent calendar. I can’t believe that I opened the wrong day when I knew about the gold tree covering the 1 of the 18. ARGH.
Oh well. This is a great tea for tonight because I am having problems falling asleep tonight. My little guy turns 3 tomorrow (today actually since it is after midnight) and we just finished putting all the balloons on his floor and the streamers on his door and I am just so excited for him to get up and see it. I hope he thinks it is cute and starts his day off right. Birthday’s should be exciting and he gets gyped with it being so close to Christmas. Still can’t believe he is 3.
Aww… That sounds amazing! I agree that birthdays should be exciting. He must have been super happy! : )
He was so excited. Loved the balloons but didn’t quite get the concept of breaking through the streamers to get out of his room. We talked him through it and he told everyone he saw today what his elf did. So cute.
Faith my wee man was due on Christmas Day so I was so excited to have him a week early. But there were 6 kids born on Christmas Day that year. Just make sure she has a special day and if not move it like many others have done. Happy 1st Birthday to your little girl.
This is finally what I have been looking for in a straight green tea. I may have hit the steeping temp right on this one first try. Of course trying to duplicate it with our regular kettle may be hard but at least I know I can do this right. Only steeped for 3 minutes. Lovely light colour and tasted. Can’t wait to have this again. Need to rebuy soon though since I only bought a small amount.
Made this tonight. I am not fond of the smell of the dry tea but I need anything I can get to help me out with colds since I can’t use cold medication with my high bloodpressure.
I am hoping to kick whatever I am currently getting in the butt with this cold. I added some Bravissimo to it tonight. I think next time I will have the Cold 911 alone since the chamomile from the Bravissimo is really taking over. Can’t wait to try it alone. Hope this cold/whatever goes away soon.
I want to add another great recommendation for this. Just got it this afternoon but it is amazing. And it is super easy to clean. I may actually consider getting another one so that I can hold the leaves for resteeping and to keep my blacks from my other teas. Still on the fence on that one.
I have had a great tea day. The 2 teas I have tried of the ones I bought today are really great.
I also bought a steeper today so it was exciting to watch the little balls of tea unfurl in it. The taste is great with a nice lemon undertone. I think this will be great in the winter when I am feeling under the weather. Can’t wait to tomorrow morning when I can try resteeping the leaves.
This is another keeper.
Oh yay for the Steeper!!!
Mine is in constant use. But some people say you can take it apart to clean it… if you ever figure out how the heck to do that will you let me know? haha
My cousin has had one for a few months and I think she figured it out. If she shows me I will take step by step pictures and figure out a way to post them here for you. LOL. So glad I broke down and bought it.
I got this tea today in the hopes that it can replace my beloved Pink Flamingo that I am almost out of and can’t order again until January when it returns for a limited time.
I am happy to say I am not dissapointed. It is different from Pink Flamingo but is also wonderful. It is nice and tart. I will add another review later when I try it again but this tea is definately a keeper. And it is permanent.
I was really hoping to love this one. I made a travel mug to take with me to my WW meeting last night. And the great thing about all these teas is that having them has reduced my craving for sweets. And they are 0 points if I put nothing in them. So since I like Carrot Cake I was hoping I would love this but no such luck. There is an odd smell to it. I can’t even describe it but it hits my nose and messes with the taste. It is an ok tea. I will try this one again. I put almond milk in it so I will try it plain and see if that changes anything. Maybe I will try baking with it.
Yeah, when I got some to try, the girl was super busy and gave me 50g instead of the 26 I asked for. I didn’t notice until I’d left, so I was hoping I’d love it. No such luck. I might try playing with it and latteing it up, but we’ll see. It is definitely an odd tea. I know I could return it, but all tea returns are composted, which makes sense, but I hate to see good tea go to waste just because I don’t care for it.
I wondered what they did with returned tea. I may see if my mom likes it since she seems to like different tea than I do.
