4033 Tasting Notes
i thought that i’d like this one more. it has a number of ingredients that i like and seemed like it would be a fun tasting blend. sadly, it’s pretty much coming across as a minty green. I’m not getting any of the other flavours :( Shmiracles sent this my way and i’m glad for it…even if i know nothing about this fandom, they’re fun to try! :)
i had another cup of this one a few hours ago, and sadly don’t remember much from it. I’ve been distracted trying to get organised with “real life” with a bunch of last minute things that need to be organised. It’s thankfully almost time to just draw a bath and relax before trying to get an early night…i hope.
mmmmmm so i’ve had this sample in my cupboard from gracebtlb for a while now. Not because i haven’t wanted to drink it, but because i try to take the time to sit and really focus on the puerh, at least the first time i have it haha. I have to say that this one shocked me with just how much i loved it. I’ve been pretty much drinking it since this morning – in between cups of other teas. This will be an order for sure in future!
I didn’t really take notes while drinking this as i was really enjoying it. but i did give it two rinses to start, as suggested to me by grace. After that i just kept adding 15 sec or so each steep.
-earthy; bold; smooth; a little sweet; leathery; sweet; sort of roasty…kinda
Just a really happy tea for me today in rainy ville. I need to start setting aside time every weekend for puerh!
hmmmm…. Cavocorax sent this my way so that i could try out another of david’s spring teas. I’m not sure about this one. It sort of tastes like cucumber water that they serve at spas but a little sweeter. Overall, not my thing since i’d rather just drink cucumber water lol still glad to have tried it though :)
Thanks missB This tea, while quite lovely reminds me more of a puerh than an assam/ceylon blend. There’s an earthy quality to this that is in line with the puerh i had this morning haha. It looks like missB saw this as closer to a lapsang…so maybe it’s just one of those teas that changes for everyone heh. Either way, this was a really nice cup of tea for this late morning. Though on that note, it seems insane that the day is barely half over and i’ve still got so many teas that i can drink!
this is a tricky tea…which i’m ok with since it’s loki. shmiracles sent this my way and when i opened the bag i was like “well crap…that’s uh…some jasmine” However, once brewed, the jasmine IN the tea is almost non existant. read that as “sil didn’t have to dump it down the drain” my main problem with this though was that i kept smelling the jasmine, which was turning me off the cup even though every time i took a sip, i was like oh! no jasmine lol
