4923 Tasting Notes
maaaan… stacy sent this my way as a sample in my birthday order and i’m so glad she did. I’d forgotten just how much i love this tea. I’ve had a couple steepings now since i’ve been up and it’s such a contrast to the sansia black that i’ve also been drinking. i love the woody, fruity taste to this one that goes along with the strength of the tea. YUM! so glad i got the chance to have this again and this time, i’m remembering to put it on my wishlist!
started the morning off Butiki style with a couple of great teas this morning, one of which was this one. I’ll probably also have this one again later this week because i’m enjoying it as part of my morning rotation. it’s not my all time favourite stacy tea but there’s something about it that’s just working for me today on these cooler, greyer mornings.
so a minor pet peeve of mine here to start and that is around companies and social media. If you’re going to be present on social media you need to actually BE present. that means, if a customer uses it to contact you, you’re prepared to answer. If someone tweets at you…you answer…someone pins you or whatever the hell that crap is… you respond. there are a number of companies out there that haven’t quite grasped that social media is where you need to be social. it’s not just a place for you to advertise.
sorry rant off…have just had a number of poos experiences all around with various companies – tea related and not, and it’s frustrating.
this tea + maple syrup = where it’s at. too bad it’s all sold out heh
this was one of my morning teas and a delightful one at that. i want to try this one gonfu before i land on any conclusion…i hope, but first impressions are that this is a rather strong, bold tea with malt notes, a nut like sort of impression and an overall generally smooth taste. Glad i got the chance to pick this one up for my birthday!
mmmm having a cup of this while hanging out on the balcony watching the rain roll in. dark gloomy clouds, bringing the fresh scent of rain to clean away the day’s dirt and mess. i adore rain..sadly ontario just doesn’t do rainstorms like alberta…the kind where you just want to run in to the middle of the street and dance in the rain…cool droplets of rain, splattering on the hot, dry sidewalks, sizzling as they hit the pavement until the rain begins to overtake the concrete jungle…pooling water, as it travels across the slate grey…searching for a way into the soil…
