299 Tasting Notes

So, I haven’t had many pu’erhs but this is a good tea. I’m drinking it cold-brewed today and it’s really nice. The licorice root adds a weird sweetness. If there were much more of it, it’d taste artificial, but it’s fine as just a touch. The smell is amazing, though.

Preparation
Iced
Cavocorax

Ooh. I’ve never cold brewed puerh!

At first I thought this was just weird cold, but I kinda really love it now. It’s strange, the mix of “cold” and “buttery” though.

Preparation
Iced
Cavocorax

I really should try it iced some time! I was also sorta tempted to pick up more because it’s 30% off right now… but I’ve got enough tea. :)

Ozli

that IS tempting!

Drinking the last bit of this, very nice & light this time. :D Making the rest into cold-brewed tea; we’ll see how that goes. Trying to drink down my teas from swaps!

Man, that’s got some bite to it, doesn’t it? I’ll try a shorter steep next time, maybe. A buddy gave me a bunch of this the other day and I forgot til I looked it up that Cavocorax had also sent me some!

The child is walking around like a giant marionette right now. Need more caffeine. :P

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

Well this tea should be able to give you that at least! Kick in the face strong!

Ozli

YEP! Sadly drinking coke zero this morning. It’s pretty gross. :P

Last bit! SUCH a good tea. I made it and a peach vodka ginger ale at the same time (it’s hot!!!) and then was like, whelp. :/ I guess I was on autopilot or didn’t count a steeping tea as a beverage BECAUSE I’M STILL THIRSTY WTF >:(

Anyway, I’m drinking it; it’s excellent. And on my shopping list for when Lemon/Lime Tart runs out.

Cold-brewed with lemon! Very nice. I like having a jug of whatever on the go all the time now. It’s nice having a choice that isn’t pop or juice in the fridge when water isn’t cutting it. ;)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
Cavocorax

I agree! Iced tea is so handy! And you don’t have to worry about it getting cold or over-steeping as much either!

Did you see DavidsTea is promoting teapop? I’m totally curious about what it’ll be like – gonna have to grab club soda and give it a try!

Ozli

Yesss! I never worry about oversteeping.

I saw that tweet but I haven’t looked at it. It sounds like something I wouldn’t be into but that K would LOVE.

Cavocorax

Yeah my hope is that J will like it and I can slowly get him addicted to tea toO! :O He likes pop bc of the caffeine and carbonation but doesn’t want all the sugar. This is perfect!

Ozli

Hahha #ulteriormotive >:D

2nd to last cup of this and I forgot it for like, 15 minutes while I played Fallen London. /o\ THIS TEA IS VERY FORGIVING THOUGH! It’s still good! Of course, K just showed up with a coffee…

I’m not dumping it though. It’s so good. I will miss this tea.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cavocorax

Fallen London sounds INTERESTING!

Ozli

It is! It’s a cool story. It is kinda slow in the beginning but idk, I’m still playing, so….

Cavocorax

I bookmarked it!

Morning steepster-ers. I finally made a cup of tea after hours of wishing for one proved tea-less.

Cavocorax

Hahaha. Funny how that works.

Cavocorax

Or doesn’t. #tragic

Ozli

SO tragic. It’s true.

Last bit of this yesterday, just before our power went out (for the longest bit – it went out a LOT yesterday, stupid wind) which was really nice timing. So I got to sit in the sun with cats & lovely tea for my powerless afternoon.

Boiling

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
