7678 Tasting Notes
Experiment time! I’m home today so i figured it would be the perfect opportunity to compare both of tao’s rice tuo’s side by side.
1st steep – this one starts to break apart a lot faster than the shou…the brew is darker and the aroma is stronger…this one smells more like rice than the other. the brew is..plain, average…not super intense, but smooth with the rice flavouring being more on the tail end of the swallow than in the initial sips…
hmmmm more to come i’m sure.
I pulled this one out of the cupboard yesterday as well. I am STILL not a fan of goji berries in my chai but as long as they’re there, i can pick them out without too much fuss. I still prefer loashan black chai to this one, but this is also a really tasty one. it’s nice to have both back in my cupboard to get me through the rest of winter – which is the only time i really love drinking chai. :)
Final Count yesterday: 103 (because i didn’t add the teas i received from Cavocorax yet…)
So the downside to loving this tea is that i am starting to slip in to hoarding mode this month…because i know that come the end of January i’ll be doing a final count and then start working my way down to 50 teas in my cupboard for the end of the year….in order to DO that i need to buy less tea, and drink everything in my cupboard. BUT because the dolllar is so terrible this year, i’m really going to be focusing on ordering from canadian tea companies whenever possible. and this is NOT one of those companies :( oh well…at least i have about 90g left… heh
I also had this tea last night, brewed hot…and it made me realise how much i love this tea when it’s cold brewed, steeped in part apple juice. LOL I vastly prefer it that way for that sweet, sour tang. Just trying to help keep my system primed and ready to keep fighting all the sick that is going on at work these days.
mmmmm i’ve been bad lately…drniking tea, not doing tasting notes….generally i’m just really tired these days. Wedding planning and vacation planning are exausting. Plus work has slowed down, so i find that i’m bored and apathetic at work so i’m trying to make projects to keep my entertained lol
I have had this a number of times since omgsrsly restocked me. It’s still going strong in terms of my general like for this tea so that makes my a happy camper :)
