1190 Tasting Notes
What does this taste like? Like if you melted a plum candy in hot water, a little bit.
I, er, ordered more teas then I expected too from various black friday-cyber monday sales, so, while I have reached my black friday sipdown goal, the sheer amount of tea thats coming in has given me a great desire to sip down the teas that I’ve only got a little of.
So I’m going to try to finish this today. And it is December, after all. Holiday tea is now appropriate.
This months Lupicia freebie in the newsletter. I like to brew them up the same day that I get them, if possible, as otherwise they tend to sit in my sample bowl, until I have one of my drink-all-the-samples manias.
This is nice! It smells amazingly like one of those chewy caramels, and a faint chaser of rum is in the taste. I might hunt down a bit of this in future, as I like to have a sweet noncaffinated tea on hand.
Its not official, but I always feel like the last day of November is the end of Winter. So I thought it would be appropriate to finish off this autumnal tea today.
Sob. I love you Boston, I dont want you to go. But it wont be forever! You’ll be coming back to me, and maybe even before next autumn.
Wow, we pass Black Friday and suddenly I’m sipping them down like nuts.
This is the afternoons cup of writer juice. So close to 50k! I can do it! Whew.
This tea never really made an impression. Perhaps I didnt understand its steeping parameters, but I never could really eek out the promised flavors. Its not bad, but it leaves almost no impression. This is a sipdown, and I will only really have my tasting notes to remember that I’d tried this.
