196 Tasting Notes

Tuesday 5/11 - Bird & Blend Rhubarb + Custard sample cold brew 20 oz in glass jar since 5/8 or 5/9? It’s hard to keep track of anything anymore these days. Tastes like rooibos, no rhubarb or cream coming out. (sample is very old, not going to say no/yes because of that)

Tuesday 5/11 - Vahdam India green tea 2 sachets hot & plain 5/10, drank from fridge 5/11 with breakfast. I am not sure if I brewed this in too hot of water or if water had coffee remains in pot (using lobby container at work) or what, this just did not taste good.

Mon 5/10 - Traditional Medicinals Organic Turmeric 2 teabags hot & plain. This was 4 teabags that came in a Sipsby box at some point. I drank two of these as something comforting with the warmth of temperature, turmeric, and ginger. Got the job done although was tasting a little stale.

Mon 5/10 - 52teas candy cane Genmaicha packet 15g cold brew pitcher. pitcher started at Canopy AM (between 630-655 am) before my 5/4? shift, finally drank last of it 5/10 warm in my trusty DT dark blue tumbler at work (wasn’t brewed that whole time. these are just noting for myself I know nobody else cares). I enjoyed this one, this is my second time drinking this I believe, Anne is always a winner when genmaicha wise and the “candy cane” added a nice sweet mint note. Wouldn’t go out of my way but if this appeared again in a subscription box or on the website, I wouldn’t be sad and grab a taster or two.

Fri 5/7 188/12 naked teas galore lemon meringue tulsi. I have a lot of this tea from Amoda, was in a sub box and then ended up buying a bunch. It’s definitely unique (maybe from tulsi?). first day at my new job and I sipped this hot and plain (silver metal basket in my trusty 20 DT dark blue tumbler steeped boiling water for at least an hour). It was a nice soothing cuppa for the afternoon.

Friday 5/7 — Dessert by Deb Lady Grey’s Garden nice size sample packet, 20g(?) enough for a cold brew pitcher. I have an order coming soon (from Jan 2021 winter brunch collection) with my March/April sub box, I have just placed 5/10 an order for her new collection (and another one pending waiting for the next weekly offers/deals newsletter), and figure I better get working on the 324283903248 teas I have from her in almost 2 years of DbyD. Not my cuppa, definitely a floral earl grey black tea.

Thursday 5/6 — Lauku Tea Brigita’s Daylight Blend. Sipsby box. Cold brew glass jar. Uh, it’s Thursday? WTF happened to Weds? Oh! I know! I had work, then I had an impromptu casual sit down/interview/job offer, then I came home to tell my boyfriend (who I live with) & my parents (phone call) about job opportunity, then my Columbus Crew were outplayed by Monterrey in CCL play to be eliminated losing down in MX 3-0. I sipped on tea, but nothing was finished 5/5 (I guess a store kombucha GTS Lavender Love). Anyway, I sipped this this morning after it has been brewing in my fridge for a few days. Very herby herbal. Was cold and got the job done this morning with breakfast.

Tuesday 5/4 — Davidson’s Organics Rooibos Spiced Chai 2 tea bags. Another tea hot & plain at work during the end of the shift. Thanks Sipsby (from a box a long time ago, probably a few years?).

Been a huge fan of tea since spring of 2016.

Likes: herbal (tisanes), green, oolong, fruity, lemon, bananas, cherry, raspberry, any berries really, dessert, sweet potato, spicy, smoky, earthy, roasted, chai, ginger, cardamom, lavender, rosemary, sage need to keep adding to this.

Dislikes: stevia, chamomile, rose, jasmine, perfume, floral.

I post here and there on Instagram, need to start posting there more regularly.

I love to share/swap/take in homeless teas… if you have something (even if it’s just enough for one cup – for me one cup is a 16-20 oz size) to share / want to swap / etc. feel free to send me a message. I don’t have any allergies and love trying new things! :)
