Well, I picked this tea out of the cupboard using the tried and true method of ‘closing my eyes and flailing my arm around’. I wish I had picked a black tea as I’m dragging a bit this morning and I’ve picked up a nasty cold somewhere, but I shall survive.

This is a good tea, chocolatey and minty. I sweetened it a bit since I just drank some chocolate almond milk so I didn’t want to get the shock of going from sweetened beverage to unsweetened one. Still this is tasty and I’ll look forward to drinking the rest of it.

awe…this one was so tasty…

Sipdown! That I oversteeped of course, since work is busy and I forgot about it again. I should really start setting a timer or something. So a little astringent and bitter but still okay. I’ll miss this but I have too much tea to buy more of it or another maple tea.

I need to wake up this morning so I needed to start with a black tea and this one just hit the spot. I had to wait a bit for my palate to clear since I had some toast and marionberry jam right before I made this cup but it was worth the wait. I still enjoy this tea greatly and I have 1-2 cups left of my work stash. I may even have to gasp bring more tea to work!

Back to being an unmotivated lump now.

I wanted something minty and cool so I made this and let it cool down to room temperature. It’s a good minty tea, I like the tarragon in it, and it just hit the spot today.

Still delicious, even as old as it is. I still have quite a bit of this so it’ll take a while to sipdown. Backlogged review from last week.

Backlogged note from last week. This was just okay. Possibly it’s the age but I wasn’t terribly impressed. Still good but just that.

I have had this in my cupboard for a while so presumably what I have is the old version. Still delicious. I drank this a week ago but I need to catch up on my tasting notes.

I went to this tea room with my family in Christmas 2016 and loved this tea so much that I had to buy some. I still love it. It is so tasty. I love the flavours and the fruitiness and just love. I am full of love.

Increasing my rating on this. So so so good. Vanilla is subtle but tasty and it is just warming me up. The black tea base is fantastic and I’m just really enjoying this cup. Going to try a second steep later, I think.

In other news, it’s snowing in Seattle. WHYYYYY. I have to go somewhere in a couple of hours too and I don’t want to brave the hill I live on. I already had one doctor appointment canceled due to the weather, can’t they just cancel both? They were only 20 minutes apart!

Had a sample of this tea hiding in my cupboard so I made the first steep last night and the second this morning. Western style in a teapot for 2 and 3 minutes.

First steep was very very vegetal. Green beans and peas and a bit grassy but not much. Very much what I expect a good Chinese green tea to taste like.

Second steep was still quite strong despite its age though there was less green beans and more grass. Good tea, would buy again.
