6481 Tasting Notes
this is off to friends that i know will get more out of this than i will. I had another cup tonight and it’s just not doing it for me. I know i originally really loved this, but since ordering it, i’m just not as much a fan. I may love it more in winter months? maybe? i’m not sure, but i much preferred the sample i had over my order. Different harvests i guess. not a bad tea, but just not as amazing as the first time i tried it. dropping the rating as a result.
this was in the BBB grab bag and since i try not to let things get back to TB, i pulled it out, figuring that if nothing else it could be shared by the numerous tea folks here. I figured i really ought to try it sooner than later so i could knock it off my list if i decided i didn’t really like it. As expected, this one’s not for me. there’s a floral note in this one that just doesn’t sit with me, and as it cooled it took on a taste that i really didn’t care for. In to the swap box it goes for others to try!
let’s talk about how the preorder on this one changed and NOW it’s going to be like August before i get my LB back. I.am.not.happy. Terri was awesome enough to send me an ounce, which i have since devoured and have maybe a cup left. i’m not thinking of stealing Cavo’s ounce…and even then i’m not entirely sure that will get me through. July 14 = 10 business days from that before i get my beloved tea….it’s like verdant is taunting me..oh hai…for your after birthday present, we will make you wait at least 10 more days for you tea. neener neener.
So I can tell we’re starting to make headway with the house because I’ve baked twice now in he the past weekend. Yesterday I made honey bran muffins with raisins (because let’s be honest bran muffins without raisins aren’t anything ppl want to eat…) and tonight? Tonight I’m making banana nut cookies…Sans nuts lol. I guess I could call them banana oat cookies? Neither my other half nor I really loves walnuts in cookies (or brownies! Bah!) . Both recipes were new ones, so they could have been disasters lol
Anyway, I digress… I’m enjoying my last cup of this one while I eat fresh baked cookies that are totally yummy. This one will be back in my cupboard I’m sure but another day.
Final count: 199 (woohoo! Sooo 99 teas in twoweeks? Lol you know it’s me…so of course I’ll try…. Not expecting to succeed)
[also for anyone who cares…operation 6 month is still going strong. down to 2 teas from october and nine from December, which is significant if you consider all my black friday orders lol)
