596 Tasting Notes
Had some of this at lunchtime. It was a treat. And they were almost out in my local Peets!
I knocked over my tin yesterday, and lost some of this leaf, and lost some of it into my sink. Not a lot, but enough to hurt me in my tender little soul. Its a good tea! Its only around this time of year! I wanna keep it!
Well, I’ve still got plenty, it will be alright.
Today I can really taste the white chocolate in it, which is welcome and delicious.
A successful day! My meeting with the head of the major arts organization near by (specifically education and outreach, which is what I want to do), went very well. I am going to write her a thank you card, and thank her. There are a bunch of potential really awesome things that I could help out with, and get my foot in the door of that industry. Yay.
So celebratory tea!
I feel, due to the unsealed nature of the S&V tea containers, that I should sip them down fairly quickly. And I havnt felt an overwhelming desire to hord them, so sipping down I will go.
I am still tasting cocounut. What on earth? Why? Gah. Coconut. I do not care for coconut. Where is the promised caramel and custard? Hmmm.
Ah. This is the only one of the teas that JustJames sent to me that I had tried before, and I was eager to brew it up again.
This is so complex, so many glorious layers to it, with the caramel lurking under the lush currant flavor. Its a beautiful tea.
Its going to be a busy day. I’ve got an interview with the lady who runs the local arts center (not a job interview, but an informational meeting), so Ineed to be ready and sharp.
This tea is putting me into a delightful zen-ness, which will help in my morning preparations.
Thank you James, for letting me try this again!
Hmm. Nope. I am not overly impressed with this one. It might be my problem, and not the tea. I’m getting a little cinnamon, but no apple. Its not the cup of pie I was hoping for.
My reaction to nearly all teas that I’m on the fence with is “I will tinker!” and I play around with steep time an leaf amount, to try to find the proper steep. So I will play along with this tea, and see what comes of it.
