204 Tasting Notes
My sis pointed out that I have not been on Steepster in a crazy long amount of time, so I thought I’d log in a note today :)
During my absence, I’ve been enjoying lots of teas in my cabinet. I’ve been trying to avoid any big purchases until I drank most of the tea in my cabinet, so here I am logging a tea I’ve logged before.
I find it interesting how my taste in tea changes throughout the year. For a while, this tea did not appeal to me any longer, but now it taste amazing. A great tea to start my day.
I’ve missed this community and will spend some of my “break” time today reading over your latest notes!!
Chocolate marshmallow awesomeness in a cup. I like this almost as much as Eight Candles. Della Terra’s black base is amazing. Always a good cup and never bitter. For me, the chocolate was the strongest flavor note with marshmallow playing a close second. Beautifully blended! Another win from Della Terra.
I’ve missed Steepster lately. It’s getting harder and harder for me to find time to post and read posts. Hope everyone is well. I plan to spend the next 20 minutes reading tasting notes :)
Thought I’d give smokey teas a try again with this one. Still not loving it. My feelings about it have nothing to do with quality of tea, so I’m sure this is a good quality Russian Caravan. It has all to do with taste. It must be an acquired taste or something that just hits some people right. I’ll be passing this on to my dad who loves a good lapsang souchong.
What an interesting and beautiful tea. Cute little mandarin orange peels stuffed with beautiful white puerh tea.
I gave my leaves a rinse before brewing. I steeped it for a minute which I see was a bit long according to the directions here (no internet at home to check). Each sip brought different notes to light. My first sip tasted mostly like a white tea with a hint of orange at the end. By my last sip, I was tasting notes of honey and citrus. I can’t wait to try the brewing instructions suggested above and see what comes from that :)
Thanks, sissy, for sending me this!!
It has been a strange week without cable and internet. I’ve only had a chance to check out Steepster a few times. I’ve also not been drinking much tea this week. I think there’s some connection ;)
I’m at my parents and this was an option. I’m really digging the bright flavor and beautiful purple color. Drinking my 3rd cup as I type.
