2194 Tasting Notes
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.)
So I decided to finish up a sample, and then found a HUGE FULL BAG of it in the cupboard. Which I think is my own fault, actually… The sample was from Kittenna, but the huge bag is from Bonny. Thanks so much, both of you!
This is… not a white tea. Why was it in my white tea box? It’s a carby sweet potato-y, fairly thick, yunnan black. Like so many of the fuzzy black teas Dexter has shared with me. There isn’t really a peppery note to this one, though. It’s just carby and sweet-ish and smooth.
Pretty nice! I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to get this one (and I’m also happy to share what I have!), but it’s tasty!
(There’s one from Han Xiang Ecological that is amazing when I steep it grandpa style. That is my favourite golden fuzzy tea I think, because it stands up to whatever I throw at it. I think it’s this one. My notes are so bad. http://steepster.com/teas/han-xiang-ecological-tea/49946-yunnan-dian-hong-gold-bud )
