74 Tasting Notes

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #74 overall / Tea #41 for February

Wednesday 2/24 — So I’m on a good roll to finish February on track with sipdowns, so figured I’d get a few in this morning at home since I was working the 3-11 shift at work today. I’m not a earl grey fan or much of a black tea fan so I grabbed two different earl grey teabags and figured hey half water half milk make a latte and knock two out.

This was more subtle smelling not sure if flavoring wasn’t as strong as the steeped tea one or an older teabag? Oh! I did post a pretty picture of latte in my matching DT mug & handmade coaster from @teathoughts :

I’m not a earl grey fan or much of a black tea fan so I grabbed two different earl grey teabags and figured hey half water half milk make a latte and knock two out. This one smelled pretty strong taking it out of the sealed foil package. It was fine but nothing else to say.

Tuesday 2/23 16 oz gold tumbler (old style) hot and plain. I think this was the older version of this tea because it was just in a clear Ziploc baggie but I’m not sure I know the difference?? This was my last tea of 2/23 I think hallelujah!

Tuesday 2/23 hot cuppa in pink 12 oz(?) dt mug. I think I had this as a latte? I was sipping so many teas yesterday. I enjoy this one even though it has that C ingredient haha.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #69 overall / Tea #36 for February 

Tuesday 2/23 hot plain cuppa in pink 12 oz(?) dt mug. 8 to 10 oz of water with a DT 5g sample packet (like you would get in online orders) and good pour of cold milk to fill up mug. It’s a popular one but never been a fan. Glad to keep getting rid of it when I find some in my stash.

They seem to do teabag samples now instead. And the last two times I ordered, I didn’t get any! Maybe because it was teaware only…

Cameron- Same here and I think I saw a tasting note from Ros saying that DT wasn’t doing samples anymore.

Tiffany :)

Yeah, it was nice to get the samples (and even back in the days where you could choose the three in case you had any preferences/allergies), but I have a small trash can (like one you’d have under a desk at an office) filled with them and that’s only maybe a 1% of my tea stash. :) — I did notice in past year or so they’d occasionally throw a couple tea bags in the box like you mentioned Cameron.

#drinkwhatyouown February 8/25

Tuesday 2/23 still working on Jan and Feb teas from my diy advent calendar #drinkwhatyouown etc. I haven’t even made a theme for March yet. Hmm. Anyway this was a random little silver wrapped tea labeled Passionfruit. Not sure where it came from but I know I have had it for a while. It was a flowering blooming tea, which is not really my style. I put it in a 12 oz clear Holly branch perfect mug from my david’s tea days and sipped hot and plain with breakfast.

#drinkwhatyouown February 7/25

Monday 2/22 this was from Danielle @teaandmeblog 2020 advent calendar that was small business focused. I don’t drink but enjoy fruity teas. This was the kind of fruity black tea I would like. A berry tasty tea that I had hot and plain and even resteeped 2/23 before tossed leaves / cleaned metal infuser basket. Not a place in my cupboard for this but I enjoyed it.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #65 overall / Tea #32 for February

Monday 2/22 so my goal is 500 sipdown notes by end of 2021 (each one is a tin/package something minimum one 16 to 20 oz travel mug worth). To do I need at least 42 notes a month so 84 by end of February. This puts me at 3x/day for the rest of February so I need to step up. Luckily this 25g packet of tea from fall 2016 as a cold brew pitcher for my boyfriend is done with so I can count it. I had to come home from my day shift and make him a hot latte to finish the pitcher off so I still had to do some work to make it happen. Lol.
