1168 Tasting Notes
Aww! Dexter3657 surprised me with a package today. Thank you! Some puerh to
hoard away err, share with my brother, and a couple other samples. This was one!
I used the whole thing in a giant mug. :) Go big or go home tonight, I guess. And I like it! So true, it’s like puffed wheat. Only hot and not chewed. I think it would go well with milk! Mmm… I think I will need to hunt down something like this locally. Maybe one of the Asian supermarkets will have it!
Oooh, it tastes like a vanilla chai cake. Yummy!
I’m having it with (surprise) almond milk. It goes well.
Yum yum yum.
(FYI to everyone with my address, I’m going to be moving May 15. Yes, this is lots of warning, I’m doing this on purpose! I just got a surprise package today!)
I got my Bellocq samples from fuzzypeachkin and CrowKettle! YAY!
Of course I’m having the assam first.
It’s nice. Really smooth. Really doesn’t need anything added to it (and I do like adding things to my tea). It’s a very sweet assam. IDK. Descriptive words are escaping my brain.
I made this up and took it to gaming yesterday.
It was OK. Not something I’d buy again due to the fact that I’m not a huge fan of iced black teas (except at lunch during the summer, which is really limiting).
Steeped and flash chilled. Made ~2 litres (8 cups, whatever that is). Added 1 tbsp sugar.
(Oh gods, so much sugar yesterday. So. Much. Next time? I need to not snack because wow. Caramel popcorn is my nemesis.)
This is a really quite good coconut oolong. I still prefer the one I get from SOKO, because that one is even more floral oolongy with baked coconut flavours.
However, this is a good, slightly less expensive alternative. Definitely something to consider throwing into a future order! I’ll have to see how this one cold steeps, too. :)
Thanks, Cavocorax! (I swear I’ve tried this before, but no note? IDK. My mind is so lost right now.)
