7171 Tasting Notes
i like mango teas. I don’t think i have issues with tumeric. Let me tell you though, i asked for 10g of this one, and didn’t notice when she decided i needed 20g until i got home. Opened it and man was this strongly tumeric – moreso that what i smelled in the store. i ended up brewing this one and not being able to bring myself to take a sip of it until it was nearly cooled down. something about the smell was just not working for me. However, once i finally tried it, i can get behind it lol. I wish there was more mango to this as it’s mostly in the tail end of the sip, but it’s there. This is a spicy tea, so you need to be in the mood for that, which is funny to me since it’s supposed to sooth an upset tummy. Not sure how that works, but i don’t drink tea for health reasons lol i will probably be good with just the 20g of this i received, but we’ll see. I do like my spicy teas.
Final Count: 126 (because i just HAD to go pick up a couple new teas from david’s…)
This came out “again” today and, having not had this the first time david’s was selling, i stopped by to pick some up since i DO enjoy pear teas. Also, herbal teas are something i’m allowed to pick up here and there as i don’t have an abundance of them. Overall thoughts on this one? Not bad but not a 90’s sort of tea for me. I’m not sure this really reminds me of POACHED pears, but it is a pretty typical pear tea. There’s a bit much in the way of cinnamon to me, but it comes and goes with various sips, so it’s not the end of the world to me. A decent cup, though i’m not sure yet if i’ll pick up 50g. especially with the tea festival coming up, and my small purchase of picking up more french toast.
omgsrsly sent this one my way. I’ve never tried anything from this company so it’s nice to branch out. i’m sort of with dex on this one. It seemed much to fussy. When i was able to get the right balance of time and temp it was pleasant enough but then i’d have random steepings that just didn’t taste all that wonderful. even with essentially flash steepings. I’m ok with this though, because i know i have lots of other puerh that i adore :)
SNOW DAY! Ok so not really, because things are still open and what not but this is the first day of “real” snow we’ve had…some that might stick around and i’m SUPER EXCITED! totally stayed home to work so i could take a break and be able to play in the snow. yes i’m a child lol. kicked off the morning with some JW – here’s hoping they can come out to the toronto tea festival this year or next :)
Final tea from today – having a slacktacular tea drinking day after “binge-ing” on tea all weekend. So there’s wine now…and that’s delicious. This tea is growing on me the more i have it, so maybe there’s a particular time of year for me to get behind jin jun mei’s…. still working on figuring that out. heh
