4927 Tasting Notes
this was a sample from tea gscoiewrowieru…. and i’m largely unimpressed. there is very little that is tangerine like or yogurt like to me. I made sure to get bits of all of that in my teaspoons and i’m really just getting a vaguely citrus like green oolong. It smelled really nice, but i’m glad i just picked up the sample.
In an effort to trying and actually get through some of my puerh samples, i figured i should try to have 1-2 today, since my day is pretty much shot thanks to work stuff. I like this one, for much of the same reason i really love wild Monk from mandala…that smokey taste in the background of a smooth tasting brew. I’m not going to wax poetic about this one, but it’s one that i could see picking up a cake of, in the future when we have a proper place for me to have mountains of puerh!
Thanks for sharing this one with me Cavocorax
I finally had this as a hot brew and it was really nice. It’s not something i’d need to keep in my cupboard permanently but i am glad that cavo made us try this one :) it’s been a nice enjoyable tea. I think i prefer hot to cold brewing, and i think this would likely be pretty tasty if i hot brewed and then had it cold with a litle sweetner to really make the grape flavour pop!
i had this one in the wee small hours of this morning…or late last night if you want to look at it that way. Release weekend = Sil’s been up all night, though not as long as if we hadn’t had to roll back :( such a pain in the arse…and if i don’t get to ruin my weekend next weekend for this same shit, then all my other work this year gets replanned…. which would be the suck. glad i had this one with me
I had this one this afternoon while trying to add all my teas in to my cupboard lol It takes a while because i need to date them, add them to my spreadsheet, find them in steepster, add them if they aren’t there…but i’m done. At least until tuesday when i get the teas that my tea mule is bringing up for me lol
When i left on my trip, i was at 95. Now that i’m back, my cupboard is at 133 ( + 7 inbound, so nearly 140 if i don’t’ drink some before the teas get here…)
I’m back….for at least a week before i leave again. This is very nearly my first cup of tea in a week, with the exception of the sample i had while at Adagio – vanilla oolong (which i almost bought surprisingly enough..) I had this early this morning on my walk to pick up a package from dexter and get some breakfast…still not used to having a house with food versus reataurants. Especially not since tonight i’ve got an overnight which will have the worlds worst food provided. blech. So glad to be back with my tea for at least a little while…even if i did over splurge on tea while in chicago lol
