8166 Tasting Notes
Another tea that i have a bunch of, but haven’t had many opportunities…wait haven’t TAKEN many opportunities to drink. This was one of my teas from today – a woody sort of puerh with a little sweetness to it that made me forget for a moment that i was drinking a puerh. Later steeps take on much more of a black tea sort of vibe.
I’ve been drinking this and another puerh today – lazy style in my finums with short steep times while i map out my paris walking/shoppping/exploring. I am thoroughly enjoying this one, though other mandala’s probably take precedent over this one for me. it’s sort of earthy, leathery, sweet and smooth with a buttery element there in later steeps. I feel like this might work well as an intro puerh….slight nuances, without anything here that would scare someone off :)
Another tea today that is giving me grief. Maybe i need to stick with something else until i figure things out. Normally im a fan of this one but lately it’s been “off” just not quite right. There’s a bitterness today so maybe i overleafed a little or something. I’ll have to have it a few more times before i land on thins with this batch. Maybe just the harvest is off as i suspect this is a 2014 batch.
This lot really makes me happy even though it’s not a travel mug tea. I’m nearing the end of 25g of the 50 i bought, and seriously contemplating more…even though i’m about to explode my cupboard in a week. It’s just so damn good. I haven’t even tried the sun moon lake that i also picked up because i just want this one. noms. bready, apple, cinnamon, deliciousness. so good.
Final Count: 101 ( my bellyrub teas came in…so now i’m really not going to make my april goal haha…and yes i know it’s berylleb…but bellyrub is so much better.)
