4942 Tasting Notes
this was one of the teas in the BBB Box from the most recent round…sadly i still have some teas from the round before that to get cracking on! Thankfully, i can get back to that after my sample insanity from the past few months lol. This is a decent puerh. I’m going to have to go through a few more steepings today after i get back from the mall ugh but so far this is shaping up to be quite tasty! there’s a sweetness here, but also an earthy quality to it. Mostly though, this is smooth and really quite tasty. I’ll see how it holds up once i get home :)
steepster need to stop eating my notes. i KNOW i’ve had this before. grrrrrrr. anyway, i picked this one today as 1 of my two puerh choices for the day…until of course i realise that this is an oolong LOL.
Oh well, i’ll find time to have another lol
This tea is delicious. it’s chocolate, sugar sweetness and it’s ALLL MINE. this..this is an oolong that is not an oolong. love it. will need to get more.
So this is another tea that i opened up yesterday to try. when i brewed it up, it smelled REALLY rooibosy, so i was a bit worried..however in drinking this, the rooisbos taste isn’t nearly as present as the aroma would have you believe and this turns in to a rather pleasant rooibos pear tea. Could it be MOAR pear like for me? for sure! but it’s not bad :)
sooo this was the other tea i had last night before passing out because i figured honey was good…and no caffeine was probably good. the best part about this tea was that it got me to my goal of 95 teas in July! woot woot!
i remember this being pretty tasty. not overly rooibos like but with a sweetness to it and at times an almost spicy note…but not really. not sure how to describe it. either way, this was a decent end cap to yesterday!
Final Count: 97 (surprise cavo teas!)
mmmm while this claims to be a lightly smoked tea, there is something in this cup such that, while i agree, it’s also a smoke that lingers, so it feels, after drinking it for a while that it’s more smokey than it is. i hope that made sense. lol I am digging this one, even without my usual maple syrup addition, as i wanted to try this without additions first. I can see this being a possible hit with my tea sister terri :)
this is sweet and smokey and slightly malty. I am really enjoying taking the time to drink my norbu teas today :)
