5374 Tasting Notes
noms… still going…. i will be so glad when this day is over and i can crawl in to bed. My body is screaming for sleep at the moment …. but i still need to finish laundry, finish issues with work and eat. then..sleep…yyaaaaay sleep. Since i need help with keeping my eyes open, i pulled this one out from terri still a fan! :) It’s nice to have delicious teas in the cupboard even if they aren’t sipdowns haha
NOMS! terriharplady let me steal one of these from her when i was in st louis and i figured that this would be the perfect morning tea since we’re still running through test cases and such. This way i can make a cup, boil the water, steep another cup and keep rotating. so i’ve been doing that this morning and it’s been great. this is absolutely tangerine and not orange. the flavouring isn’t overpowering the tea, though i’ve been experimenting by putting some of the rind in here and there to play with the level of flavour coming through. This is also a bold enough puerh for me, without being flat in terms of a base. On the whole, i’d likely pick some of these up in future for fun :) thanks terri!
cameron B sent this one my way so i could try a few different teas from whistling kettle. I’m always wary of “pearl” teas. I find that the flavouring in those teas tends to be sort of a melange of “stuff” that never comes across as a distinct flavour for me. this tea is no exception. While it’s a fairly smooth base without any bitterness, the flavour is sort of a peach like generic kind of taste. The description indicates a bit of spice, but even my wimpy taste buds aren’t getting any of that. Not a bad cup, and i love trying new things, but not for me :) thanks again cameron!
