108 Tasting Notes
Made this for my travel mug today. It was the perfect pick-me up through my work shift. The smokey flavoring never gets old from sip to sip. The only problem was that i forgot that green tea tends to boost your metabolism a bit. I got hungry for my dinner break way too fast.
After yesterday’s lackluster attempt at Golden Blend, this morning’s wake up cup had to be Assam Golden Tips. Oh so good. :)
I learned an important lesson today: don’t brew tea at work. (if you work retail)
Why? You end up leaving the teabag in your travel mug for 20 minutes as you help customers and make your favorite tea taste like crap.
I am finding out more and more everyday that brew times are very important.
I bought this thinking it would be a cheaper alternative to Assam Golden Tips. It’s a good tea, but I really like the Golden Tips better. I am glad I only have a sampler of this one..
My boyfriend purchased some of this last week, and finally gave me a few tea bags this evening. Oh man this tea is great.
I am trying to make the effort to brew each tea i have at it’s proper brewing times, and I have found it to be a very pleasant experience. Steeping this for 5 min really brings all of the fruit flavors out. I have a feeling this is going to become one of my morning teas.
Brewed this for my travel mug to bring to my Black Friday work shift. I think I chose the right tea. The aroma and taste, just put me in a happy mood during the short moments I had when I could take a break from customers.
I’m starting the day with some Gunpowder to kick start my senses in order to keep alert. (I’ve got a Black Friday retail shift this afternoon) Brewed in my Finum Hot Glass System, i couldn’t have picked a better way to start my morning.
Sitting next the gas fireplace at my parent’s house with a cup of Lapsang Souchong gave my nose the illusion i was sitting by a wood fireplace. Needless to say it was the perfect tea to drink by the fire after work tonight.
Fruit teas tend to be a little to sweet for me. But not Paris. Tried this one for the first time this morning and my taste buds did a little dance. I am always impressed how light and peaceful Harney & Son’s flavored teas are.
Went to Harney Soho this morning and tried this tea. It is truly the scotch of teas. Fantastic smokey flavor that doesn’t leave you feeling like you just drank smoked wood. I loved it so much i bought some! This will certainly become a new constant in my tea cabinet.
