5370 Tasting Notes
mmmm…this is my morning to afternoon tea today as i work from home. I’m goign through one last round of this before the last of this goes to cavo (who miiiiight be surprised at all the goodies here for her) because she mentioned wanting to try more puerh and figure out what she likes/dislikes. At least part of this is from dinosara who sent me a number of the reserve club puerhs she disliked, while she got the green stuff i didn’t like haha. there will be numerous steepings of this one today – it’s a really nice puerh.
mmmmm sample from cookies so that i could try a few what-cha teas before i make a purchase. This one IS quite lovely as others have said. It’s malty and almost sweet but not quite. I didn’t get overly cocoa notes from this one, but there is a sense of that coming through in the background. Overall, i really nice cup of tea! thanks cookies!
JoonSusanna sent this one my way and since my cupboard is going to explode when things get here this month, i figure i better get a move on some of my smaller quantity/sample size teas. no one seems to be certain if this tea is the right listing or the other. as a general rule, this tea is less a tea for me than it is a tea for me but i don’t dislike it. after a couple steepings this morning to see if later steeps changed enough for me, i can say that this DOES have a sweet potatoe like flavour to it…there’s a mineral note in here that is what i’m not agreeing with. it’s sweet and just slightly malty. over all a decent cup….makes me want to try more teas from this company. thanks joon!
Working from home this morning because i haven’t been able to sleep well since we got back from vacation. So i’m exausted. The plus to that, is that since my other half is working nights this week, we’ll have a bit of time together to start putting the house back together lol my mother will be up in a week? and our spare bedroom currently has all our office things in it.
the other upside so this, is that my other half got up early to make banana bread, so it would be warm from the oven first thing in the morning. So a slice of that and a cup of this, and i was off to a great start this morning. Still meh about this tea, so the last of it is off to cavo so that she can give this one a try.
This is another tea that MIssB sent to the group – only about 6? more to go for me to try so that i can bundle the packages up. I would love this a lot more if it didn’t have licorice in it. I don’t actually mind licorice, but ever now and then i can’t take the sweetness that it add to things. the ginger is nice and i enjoy the lemon. with a little honey this is better, as it takes the edge off the licorice sweetness that i am not digging. thanks again MissB!
