5241 Tasting Notes
this one worked a little better today. I actually preferred it as it cooled, so maybe i’ll try this as a cold brew. I’m still not quite getting buttermilk but as i do like the base, i can see finishing this off. Not a reorder for me, and i’m glad to be getting the chance to share with a few folks :)
noms. at this rate i’ll be through all my WP teas in record time! I think i’ve been starved for new straight teas so these have been a welcome addition to my rotation. Not much to keep on saying about this one beyond the fact that it’s a great little tea full of delicious cocoa notes and a slight sweetness that makes me smile :)
mmmmmm boychik sent this one my way and ive been saving it for a day when i could drink it all day long! :) Rather than take a long series of notes on this, i wanted to just sit and enjoy it. Overall impressions – this is a fantastic puerh! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great journey.
this was a bold, strong tea to begin with and lasted for maaaaaaany maaaany steeps. Initial steeps were sort of earthy but also sweet and smooth. i picked up leathery notes and what i guess i would call sort of citrusy? i think i’m going to have to track this one down and pick up a cake. thank you so much boychik. I’ve really loved some of these fantastic offerings you sent my way!
i pulled this one out this afternoon as i wanted a bit of a break from some of the caffeine. I have a bunch of this but now that it’s moving in to fall, i tend to forget about my fruity teas. i really enjoy this one and i’m glad i picked up more of it. i always want to eat the giant cherries, though i haven’t yet succumbed heh
oh yum. what a lovely tea to start the day off with. It’s sweet and delicious – no bitterness or astringency. I love this tea a whole bunch. I also really enjoy that different companies have this tea and they’re all a little different. Some have been smokey, others, like this one are sweet without any hint of smoke.
