5775 Tasting Notes
tea from last night which finished off my older stash of this, so a semi sipdown as now i’m on the newer bag lol. I had this last night while babysitting our friends kiddo – they went out for their anniversary dinner to have some time alone! haha I am still really enjoying this blend…not sure how i feel about the latest batch of verdant blends that have come out..but i guess, given the dollar, not likely to find out any time soon lol. At least i have this one to last me for a little…
thank you Kittenna! This is one of those tasting notes that makes me sad because I was never able to pick this up myself. And it’s good. i very much appreciate the share from Kittenna today and will be resteeping this until the flavour is dead. This is juicy and delicious and everything in between here and there and everywhere. I am a fan! I don’t get a lot of chocolate notes from this one but that’s ok by me. I can mostly smell them versus tasting them. Seriously. delicious! So sad i missed out on this one.. sniffles
this was my morning tea since i needed a bit of a PUNCH. I did no rinse or anything like that and this morning it was a dark brew with just the right level of cinnamon running through it. slightly sweet but not cloyingly slow and the puerh still came through. Resteeping it now that i’m home and this is a still a great dark brew but now i’m getting a little more vanilla cookie like taste coming through along with the cinnamon.
Cavo – this is the one you need to remind me IN FUTURE to set aside for you to try :)
Also…thank you missB for accommodating my wish list and finding this one for me!
this + cacao = my tea for travelling to and from the festival today. I’m utterly exausted today but it was well worth the trip to go there and back before babysitting tonight as i found the teaware i wanted and got to spend some time with the girls. Always nice to catch up. Now that i’m home of course, i just want to go take a nap. ugh.
this is another from missB that she sent on for whatshesaid. Given the smell, i couldn’t simply pass it on without trying a bit, so i snuck a tiny cups worth from the bag to try. This one will be hard to let go. hahah it’s a delicious hazelnut, vanilla. Probably one of the best that i’ve had in a while.
sooo many teas in my cupboard and that number is just climbing haha hard to believe that i was at 75 in december….and in the nearish future i may be damn near pushing 200 lol it’s ok though since a lot of them are smaller sizes that i can sip down in a couple of cups. PLus it gives me incentive over the year to really stop buying teas to get down to 50 by the end of the year haha.
this is is a really nice tea and one that i’d consider getting again if the price point was compareable to other malty sort of teas that i like. A nice find from what-cha!
i have been digging this tea lately at night…not sure why but i’m going with it…esp since it’s one of the larger quantity of tea that i have from david’s and that doesn’t happen often. I have been out of sorts a bit lately with work and lots of tea incoming and trying to get organised…my tea cupboard is currently out of control but i’m ok with that since it gives me motivation to sipdown over the few months coming up AND more incentive to not buy tea… I figure i’ll sort things out after i get through the tea festival this weekend..provided that the last of my tea shows up as well..otherwise, all bets are off until mid february lol
Final Count: 116 (but let’s be honest, it’s likely closer to 200 by the time everything gets here…)
