2196 Tasting Notes
“This should be Green Tieguanyin” from Dexter.
Had in my thermos at work today. Pretty good, but not worth a resteep when I got home. Mostly I just wanted a gin and soda when I got home, but I managed to have a couple cups of herbal whatsit first. :)
This honestly could have steeped longer for Western Style. I was just conservative due to the temp I used. Oh well!
Had this again this evening, with some buckwheat honey. I’m still getting over this phlegmmy grossness. Of course, having yogurt for the THIRD time today probably isn’t helping!!
Oh well. The tea is delicious and soothing and I am really enjoying it. Of course, it’s one of those fluffy ever-growing teas, so I somehow have even more of it…
I steeped this with a little extra leaf in a travel mug, and it’s definitely more of a morning tea right now. I also didn’t add anything to it, because I had no milk. (~adds milk to list~) It’s a little honey/sweet potato. A little astringent in a good way. Maybe a tiny bit smoky? IDK. That might be my travel mug or my imagination.
Terrible migraine today, so I’ve had ALL THE HERBAL TEAS.
2 giant mugs of my favourite, Redberry Tonic. And now a giant mug of this one.
I do find this tasty. I really do. IDK if it’s really peach – it’s more hibiscus and fruits and flowers. Too sour to really be peach. Although it does smell peachy.
Gonna try for two more giant mugs of herbal stuff before I go to bed early.
Having some of this before I head to the mall… because it’s discontinued and since there’s a sale on 100g teas, I might pick up some more.
Definitely need to pick more up.
Thankfully it won’t break my tea budget… although I totally used the “I’m keeping to my tea budget!!” excuse to shop for clothes. Haha. (I’ve gone through all my clothes, and I’ve put together 3 capsule wardrobes (work, weekend, sport), and some of my tops desperately needed replacing.)
