5933 Tasting Notes
this was one of my teas from yesterday – a generous sample from Wymm tea that came wrapped in paper. This was a a nice sheng…full of honey and creamy notes, with only a hint of bittnerness on the back end. Unlike some sheng’s that i’ve had, it didn’t turn in to a bitter mess that i didn’t want to drink (i’m still learning!) haha later steeps had more hay notes to it but they were still smooth and slightly sweet. I may have a few more infusions of this today if i get time.
thanks so much for sharing these teas with us Wymm!
i didn’t to drink a lot of tea yesterday (or likely today) but next week should make up for it. I took this one with us on our adventure out to oakville to visit a tea shop YYZ had mentioned. Best part about it? not only was this tea totally satisfying (with a splash of maple syrup of course) but i bought my first tea tray!!! YAAAY!
after dinner latte – though tonight i used a sifter to get rid of all the sugar in my bag before i brewed it…HOLY CRIPES there was a lot of sugar in this. Lemon Lily – that is a vote against you since at the rate i was looking at, at least 20% of the bag’s weight was that sugar. and really? if i want a tea that is sweet, i can add my own. but you know what? this tea doesn’t need it.
Final Count: 155 which is up, but not so bad since i added teas to my cupboard today AND managed to sip some down!
