376 Tasting Notes

I was in Whole foods the other day and they carry this so I thought I would give it a try. This is my first experience with Guayusa. I was a little bit pensive because straight Mate is a taste that I would say is aquired, but I’ll try just about anything once. My first thoughts are a little vegetal like green beans. The mint is very good. I could drink this daily. Of course now I want to educate myself on Guayusa, and try some others. This is great though!

So of course I took advantage of Frank’s mess up special and requested some of the Man Teas. This is my first 52teas purchase. I have never had a CTC Assam. I thought it was cool how small the “pellets” are(I would call them for lack of a better term). So I brewed this after the time change Sunday morning after tearing down a few shows. I love how dark and malty it is. I went cowboy on this with no milk or sweetner. The tea was so small it fell through my strainer. Reminds me a lot of coffee but it was a great start to the morning.

drank Earl Grey, loose leaf by Tazo

Stopped by the bucks to get a tea and to try one of those new petite cake pops…..Ok really I went in to use my gift card from my Iphone. Nerd Alert I had this about a year ago when I was working at a licensed store and thought it strong. So let me also say that they have done it again with these cake pops. Yes very tasty! and so is the tea. I really enjoyed the Earl Grey, this would be one that I would order on a regular basis. So I was doing some running around and went into Radio Shack. When I got back in the car the aroma reminded me of pesto. I don’t know why…I’m not complaining though either. It tastes similar to pesto as well. I will definitely order again.

The Doctor is in and he is killing me with this one! Another great one in the coffee tea collection from the Teagarden. So I admit that caramel happens to be one of those sweet-tooth weaknesses that I have. The dry leaves have a nice roasted and sweet aroma. The liquor…well it looks a lot like muddy water. Cloudy but that doesn’t deter from wanting to try this treat. Yeah! This is a good one. The smooth buttery caramel really comes through in this tea. It’s exactly like the coffee, but add that caramel and it really makes for a treat. Great with a splash of almond milk. This tea is going great listening to Nikka Costa’s-Pebble to a Pearl album on Rhapsody.

Starting my day with this after my matcha. This your typical unflavored Mate. There is a reason that Mate is roasted or mixed other ingredients. So if you’re a cowboy and can stand a brew that tastes like sweat socks this is for you.

Well hello there friend. I received this tea from Ellen as my sweetea. Yes that was quite a generous package. Not a bad tea. Unfortunately Upton has discontinued this tea. Which to my dismay I’ve been finding some good teas that are no longer available from good companies. I should be content in being able to try this tea, and I am. Which is an overall outlook that I try to keep in life being content in my circumstances. This tea has the that nice flavor that you can pick out from the Yunnan providence, but has a little bit of a peppery kick. A very nice surprise.

So this was in my shipment from Dr. Tea. Donald put together a coffee tea sampler for me, something that they don’t even have on their website to order….yet ;) I wasn’t sure about a tea with pumpkin in it but this is amazing. A spicy chai and then the pumpkin adds this mellowing factor that is uncanny. It even gives the tea some texture. I dig!

I’ve been drinking bagged peppermint tea since I was in high school. This has to be one of the best I’ve had yet. I found it for 99 cents. The aroma of the bags hits you like a rush which is what I like in a peppermint tisane. I added this to my morning matcha and it was a great combo.

So this came in the mail for me today. Let me say that I was a little bit excited about it that’s for sure. So out of the package the tea is dark like black gunpowder teas that I have seen. The aroma of the leaves is light and pleasant like a good Hojicha. The aroma in the first cup is quite intriguing. I picked up a pipe tobacco like aroma, some vanilla, and yes even a hint of weed. How it has all that I don’t know but my nose has been stuck in the cup just taking it in. The flavor is very similar to the coffee tea that Dr. Tea carries, but a little more robust. Maybe a bit reminiscent of roasted chicory. Very tasty! It leaves an interesting feeling behind in you mouth. Almost a little numbness. The second infusion brought on a darker brew. Let face it when you roast the Iron Goddess of Mercy you have to let her warm up and unfurl her beauty. The second cup is very close to a cup of coffee. This would be a coffee kicker for me. The aspect that I find amazing about this tea is that I just finished my 4th infusion, the aroma and flavor have not diminished. I may have to change my roos after trying this one. Wow!
