719 Tasting Notes
Okay yeah. Definitely not the biggest fan of bagged teas, or the ones in the k-cups.
They’re just much harder to manage because I’m very picky with how I like my tea.
It’s good like every once in a while, but I just can’t wait to go back to my flat so I can have my loose leaf :)
Because I’m visiting my cousins and bringing my loose leaf teas with me is just too much a hassle. This is the tea that I found in their cupboard sooooo Twinigs it is!
I almost never buy drink bagged teas because I don’t own bagged teas, only loose leaf sooo yeah.
Oh I can taste the difference. I feel like bagged teas are more… robust. They can get bitter quickly since the tea stuff is so small. What do you even call that? It’s not leaves, it’s like super super small. I DON’T KNOW. I DON’T DRINK TEA BAGS OKAY. Tea leaves are just more mellow and I like it. Easier for them to not over-steep. This since it was brewed in a Keurig thing, I can’t monitor the steep time sooo yeah.
Well. It’s good ish. I’ve had better teas.
(I’m sorry. As you can tell, I’m very anti-teabag)
Busy busy BUSY day yesterday!
Just because this is the only blend that I have that mate in it, I always think that it has the most caffeine out of all the blends that I have (since coffee does things to me..)
But yes. BOFUR! He is good and he has a very mocha-y/chocolate-y taste and he is good :)
I remember the first time I drank him, I ALWAYS experiment with my teas. See if it’s good with sugar and milk and stuff and I still laugh at myself. Don’t put milk in herbal teas. Even though I’ve done that once or twice before, I know I’ll still do it becuaseee… I’m curious.
So I totally wasn’t planning on drinking tea tonight because I don’t have a good collection of decaf teas and I have up be up early tomorrow buuuut I drank some hot apple cider and it was the NASTIEST THING EVER. It was way too sugary and gross. I think because I’ve been so accustomed to drinking tea, all that sugar was no good. I had like two sips then I gave up. It was gross.
HARNEY TO THE RESCUE. Jasmine is caffeinated. I don’t care. I NEED this tonight.
Ugh, I’m running out of tea to drink.
Okay. Thorin and company. I’m not a big fan of apple pieces in my tea so when I spoon the leaves into my cup, I pick the apple pieces out and eat them :)
I loooove the smell of this blend! Kinda sad that the gunpowder overpowers the apple when it brews
I’M STILL AMAZED THAT WHITE TEA COMES OUT SO CLEAR.
Okay. This tea. The last of my white tea sample pack from Adagio.
Smells grassy from the bag. Steeping, it takes on a more grassy/slight floral aroma.
Aaaand… it tastes like grass. Not as grassy as the silver needles, but not as delicate as Snowbud.
I think Snowbud wins my vote from the 4 teas in the sample pack
I’ve never had straight-up chai before and Monica has this soooo IT’S WORTH A SHOT.
I’ve had chai in blends and they’re soooo good. Wanted to try some without any additional flavours and YUM.
**Edit. Okay I drank it aaaaand I don’t think I’m a fan of like just chai. I like the chai blends, but just plain old chai turned out to be a bit bitter? I ended up just putting a lot of milk and sugar to try to fix it. I definitely need to get chai and play around with it more to like… make it good for my taste buds :)
