716 Tasting Notes
whatshesaid sent this to me quite a while ago now and I decided to whip up a cup before settling down to finally study this afternoon.
It’s a lovely white tea. I’m not always in the mood for a straight white, but this one is great today. It’s soft and slightly reminiscent of hay. It’s almost as fuzzy to drink as it appears in dry form. I’ll save the rest for my girl.
I made this one in my teapot tonight for A and I to share. I can never decide whether or not to reorder this one. Sometimes I’m sure I want more, and others I’m sure I can live without it. Decisions, decisions.
It’s tasty tonight in the teapot. I’ll always enjoy the lightness and fresh taste of this one.
Also, we did an order to Taiwan Tea Crafts the other day! Thrilled!
My girlfriend introduced me to chai lattes a few weeks ago, but specifically to an actual tasty one at a cafe in the city here – Gravity. Last night I may have had a dream about this chai latte. So today, between playing video games – rather than catching up on studying like we both should be – we went to fetch these amazing chai lattes.
Seriously, amazing. Perfectly creamy, which I’m sure is due to the milk, but also chai tasty underneath the creaminess.
Finishing off the last of this one with my favourite girl. Now my Crio Brüs are down to just Cavalla and Pumpkin Spice. Cavalla will stay, permanently.
This one is tasty, but came out ever so slightly bitter. I just seem to have the problem where I compare them all to the amazingness that is Cavalla. Regardless, I’ve been feeling off tea as of late, and this one is sitting great this afternoon as we sit and sip on tea while researching.
My awesome girlfriend got me a teapot and matching cups for Christmas. Today we used them for the first time with this tea.
This tea was awesome, as usual.
This tea is awesome. I knew at the first sip it was a darjeeling, but I didn’t realize that before then. I really do enjoy darjeelings. The natural medium steeping colour combined with the light taste is delightful.
There are hints of breadiness and a natural sweetness that I’m really enjoying. I may need to order more of this one before I no longer have the opportunity.
Day 5 of no coffee. Between that and getting 3, 4, maybe 5 hours sleep each night for the past couple weeks, I’m doing surprisingly well.
I needed guayusa this morning though. I’ll never get over the juiciness of the blackberries combined with the lime here. It’s such an amazing mix. This morning it’s in the Timolino and holding up quite well. It’s always great to find a tea that does well in the Timolino.
I decided to attempt to not have my ice coffee, or any coffee. Right now I can’t remember why. Rather than weaning, I went cold turkey today and now I have a splitting headache. This tea seemed like a good choice.
Black teas are, more often than not, comfort in a cup for me. This one is deep and dark and perfectly Assam-y. I’m glad I picked up a bunch. When my head stops pounding, I may write an actual tasting note.
