1290 tasting notes

okay, bear with me as i try to type this. i’ll make it sjhort so you don’t have to deal with my lack of capoitalisation and typos for too long. typing is still tricky business obviouslyu and finger is sore especiually on contact but i’m getting by. i’m capable if washiong my own hair for exampke which was a relief to learn. also i reallu mioss posting!

but i wanted to tell you about this. i’ve used tjhe last of the sample that jacqueklienem sent me and resteeped it loads of times because that was easuer for me. been doing lots of bags and resteepalbel things lately. this is the third steep and since i poured the cuo and forgot about it i decided to put it in the firdge and see what happened.j

i’m not usually one for iced tea much, biut this actuallyu worked out quite nicely. now i’m reallu looking forward to my birthday order from 52teas to arrive,

and if you all gave up on trying ti decipher this i don’t blame yoiu.

You were quite coherent! My son broke his thumb when he was in 1st grade and I was amazed/amused by how quickly he learned to play video games thumbless. Blackberry and black currant is a nice flavor to ice down.

gmathis, thanks. i’m used to using all ten fingers when typing, and not being able to do tjat is really confiusing for me. it’s slower and i don’t have the oatience for it or for fixing all the typos. i’ve suddenly realised how much of the stuff i do in my spare time involves typing. i’ve been told that my typing has improved though since thurday but i’m not sure i really agree with that. :p

Bio

Ang lives with Husband and two kitties, Charm and Luna, in a house not too far from Århus. Apart from drinking tea, she enjoys baking, especially biscuits, reading and jigsaw puzzles. She has recently acquired an interest in cross-stitch and started a rather large project. It remains to be seen whether she has actually bitten off more than she can chew…

Ang prefers black teas and the darker sorts of oolongs. She has to be in the mood for green and white, and she enjoys, but knows little to nothing about, pu-erh.

Her preferences with black teas are the Chinese ones, particularly from Fujian, but also Keemun and just about anything smoky. She occasionally enjoys Yunnans but they’re not favourites. She has taken some time to research Ceylon teas, complete with reference map, and has recently developed some interest in teas from Africa.

She is sceptical about Indian blacks as she generally finds them too astringent and too easy to get wrong. She doesn’t really care for Darjeelings at all. Very high-grown teas are often not favoured.

She likes flavoured teas as well, particularly fruit flavoured ones, but also had an obsession with finding the Perfect Vanilla Flavoured Black and can happily report that this reclusive beast has been spotted in a local teashop near where she works. Any and all vanilla flavoured teas are still highly attractive to her, though. Also nuts and caramel or toffee. Not so much chocolate. It’s a texture thing.

However, she thinks Earl Grey is generally kind of boring. Cinnamon and ginger are also not really a hit, and she’s not very fond of chais. Evil hibiscus is evil. Even in small amounts, and yes, Ang can usually detect hibiscus, mostly by way of the metallic flavour of blood it has.

Ang is not super impressed with rooibos or honeybush on their own. She doesn’t care for either, really, but when they are flavoured, they go usually go down a treat.

Ang used to have a Standard Panel of teas that she tried to always have on hand. She put a lot of thought into defining it and decided what should go on it. It was a great idea on paper, but in practise has been discovered to not really work as well.

Ang tries her best to make a post on Steepster several times a week. She tends to write her posts in advance in a word doc (The Queue) and posting from there. This, she feels, helps her to maintain regularity and stops her from making five posts in three days and then going three weeks without posting anything at all.

Angrboda is almost always open to swapping. Just ask her. Due to the nature of the queue, however, and the fact that it’s some 24 pages long at the moment, it may take a good while from she receives your parcel and until she actually posts about it.
