4044 Tasting Notes
sipdown! meh. this tea should be better. it smells delicious but the taste is lacking in my opinion. it’s like a watered down chocolate o or something to that effect. it’s not BAD..but it’s not delicious and wonderful and probably never needs to be restocked. But that’s ok because i’ve tried it, and i’ve got others from della that i like. There just happen to be better chocolatey teas out there. :)
oh man…i didn’t realise that this had chocolate notes in it when i opted to brew it up. This is another one from terri’s swap with me and i have to say it’s pretty delicious. I don’t taste much puerh to this but that’s not a bad thing. It just means that this falls into the flavoured category more than the straight black :) This is a win in my books!
sipdown! Another one of terri’s teas! I think i’m beginning to discover that i’m not as much a fan of darjeelings as i used to be. There’s a flavour in a lot of darjeelings that tends to not agree with me. I’m not entirely sure what it is. This isn’t a bad tea but there are others i like better. Maybe i need to have a darjeeling journey to figure things out :)
SIPDOWN! i think i have about 11 more to go over the weekend if i want to hit my goal of 250 before next week starts…no idea if i’ll make it but i can sure as heck enjoy some tea while trying! :) thank you lala for sending this my way. never did figure out what tea it reminded me of but i really enjoyed this :)
soooo even though i’ve found that there are some green oolongs that i really and some dark oolongs that i love…as an over all type of tea, they just aren’t my favourite. This one, while it’s certainly a delicious roasty, sweet, chestnut cup of yum…there’s something in there that makes me wish it was a black tea :) I’ve gone through a few steepings of this and while it’s certainly up there on my list of oolongs, i think it’s largely time to come to grips with the fact that i’ll never love them as much as my black teas. :)
