1538 Tasting Notes
This was supposed to be an easier day than yesterday, but not so! Its been frantic, running about, trying to align repair men and sleeping companions, coordinating shipments, checking in on the houses of friends who are out of town, and so on.
Argh. Plus an emergency trip to the bus, to drop off by significant other, who did not wake up in time to go there.
And he interrupted this pot of tea! Well, that’s alright. I enjoy this, but its not my very favorite, so I’m ok if it cools a little as I run about like a decapitated chicken.
Whew. And that’s just the morning!
Oh, I’m so glad its a three day weekend. Its gonna be fantastic to not have to go into the office tomorrow morning.
I’m not above drinking a black tea in the evening, especially when it can be a lazy morning the next day.
I love Lupicia, and I love this tea, but its a bit of a mystery why its a Christmas tea. I mean, strawberry? Rose? Wha?
Its still lovely, don’t get me wrong, it just does not seem to be a winter flavor.
When looking at the flavor notes for this tea, I was rather confused. All those notes in one tea?
Turns out, yes, yes there are.
This is a lovely oolong, rich, layered, complex flavors that boil down to simple goodness. I may need some more than the little sample Ost was good enough to send to me. Oh yes, I see some tea shopping in my future. Ooooh yes.
Many, many, many thanks to Ost for letting me try this!
