4923 Tasting Notes

Drinking this one today….should be a fun time. First steep reminds me of old books. (Hey no one said this would be a good tasting note…more to come)

Really enjoying the later steeps of this one. There are earthy notes here, but it’s kind of like tasting a wet forest. looking forward to more steeps.

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Simpson & Vail

backlog from yesterday – this was my other tea to accompany dinner. I wanted to see how close to brioche it tasted, and the verdict is, not really at all haha. I prefer brioche but not by leaps and bounds. It just has a whole cookie feeling going on, whereas this is tasty but not quite embracing the whole feeling of a delicious cookie.

I had this yesterday with thanksgiving dinner at friends. No turkey but we managed a pork roast so that was fun. I’m so exhausted from work that i fell asleep in a chair after dinner, but it was still a good time lol I still really enjoy this tea :)

Cold brewing didn’t make this much better, in fact i think i’d probably argue that it made it less drinkable. ah well, at least i tried!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

backlog from yesterday. This wasn’t nearly as tasty as the first time i had it, though i’m not sure why. Maybe i just wasn’t in the right mood.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Noël en Provence by Dammann Freres

thank goodness the lavander in this is almost non existant. i was a little worried but shouldn’t have been. This is a delightful strawberry, fig tea. It reminds me a lot of strawbery jam – real strawberry jam with that mouthful of deliciousness you get when you lick the spoon. mmmm glad i have enough for another cup of this later!

drank Lapsang Souchong by PureAromaTea

sipdown! The rest of this is going over to terri to try. I am really enjoying this tea a bunch. It’s not an overly intense smokey tea – there are sweet notes in it and it’s got a depth to it that i really like. It’s also a very smooth tea to drink. As always, I added a bit of maple syrup to this and i am in my happy place. Gulped this one down before i even realised it was all gone.

drank Mango Chai by Tealux

pretty sure i don’t like this tea. I accidentally let the cup cool as i was distracted when i had it, so i’ll give it another shot. that being said, not much about it made me want to drink it once it had cooled off. That’s ok though, as i think i’ve gradually leraned that tealux = straight teas for me.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
