771 Tasting Notes

Sad Sipdown, I used the last of this this evening. I guestimated on water since I just poured the rest of the baggie into my pot. It filled up my cup so maybe 13 oz? Still very vanilla despite it’s age. I shall miss it, it was a very good vanilla tea.

Oh this is the turkey poop tea. I’d forgotten…

I’m going to need more information on that statement, Starfevre. You can’t leave me hanging like this.

drank Golden Earl by Verdant Tea

The reblend of this is by far my favourite earl grey. This is not the reblend, but it is still good. The original is very bergamoty and bready and nice. Still good after being hoarded for quite some time. I think I have one more cup of this and then it’s gone. Just a good cup of tea.

Did NOT oversteep this today, for once, so it was quite tasty. Nothing special, no real taste notes to speak of, just a nice black tea that I use to ‘clean out’ my mug when I have chai first thing in the morning. I’m bringing in a specific tea mug on Monday so I won’t have to start every day with this soon. I’ve been sick for 3 days and unmotivated to make tea so it’s nice to get back on the ‘horse’ so to speak.

drank Peach by Bentley's

Definitely a peachy tea but the black base is pretty weak. This was an interesting (free) experimental tea bag but I’m not thrilled by it.

Well, it smells very tangerine-y and I hope it will taste as good. I didn’t notice the Stevia in the ingredient label or I probably wouldn’t have tried this but I’ve steeped it already so here goes.

Well, it is very sweet, but somehow still tasty! The tangerine is very present with a background of herbal things. I added some real sugar as is my wont and I think it overpowered the stevia taste I hate. This is a very interesting tea although I probably won’t have it again. Free tea bags FTW!

Flavors: Tangy

A little bitter this morning, I may have steeped it for too long since I kind of forgot about it while it was steeping. Still, a decent generic black tea.

drank Vanilla Bean by Mighty Leaf Tea

Okay tea. Some vanilla flavour but a bit bitter, even with milk and a touch of sugar. Definitely not my favourite vanilla black tea.

I also find this one bitter (and acrid, maybe?). I also think it lacks in the vanilla department. I use it to flavor baking sometimes (steep several teabags in the liquid I add to the batter of scones or muffins.

Starfevre

Interesting, I never considered using it for baking. I only had the one bag anyway and it was free so there wasn’t much lost in this experiment anyway.

Pretty decent generic breakfast tea. Nothing to write home about but since it came to me free at work, I wouldn’t turn it down. Robust with a malty edge to it.

Flavors: Malt

This is super old at this point but still very tasty, even if I did oversweeten it since I figured out that the entire contents of my favourite teapot fits into my huge deadpool mug at once. Makes for fewer trips to the kitchen anyway. Makes judging sweetener more difficult so far. The fact that I was simultaneously drinking a Dr Pepper probably didn’t help but this was still good. Stood up to 2 steeps. I wish Butiki were still in business.

drank Birthday Cake by Butiki Teas

This tea was creamy and sweet. I’m not sure how much it suffers from being old but it’s a pretty good tea as it is. I think I’d like it better with some black tea in it though, but otherwise. good.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
