8162 Tasting Notes
I had this in usual latte style after our very short bike ride this afternoon. It’s still a little cold, and i’m seriously tired this weekend but we need to start getting out even for short ride so that we get back into the swing of things for the summer. I love this tea in latte form. I’ll be sad when it’s gone but suspect it’ll take me a while longer yet to get through the 100g or so i have left!
Another from anlina and one that i’ve had before but it hasn’t been in my cupboard for a while now, as verdant hasn’t restocked it in a bit or i totally missed it. I still love this one, though it’s evolved over the years and nothing can compare to that first time i had it from Terri. The puerh has changed and i think the balance is a little off. All that being said, it’s still one of my favs from verdant and i love revisiting it any chance i get! thanks anlina! I’ll be resteeping this one a bit this afternoon!
Another from *Anlina that i tried yesterday and will likely pick up again today just to finish it off. This was an interesting one – different than a lot of the puerhs i’ve had from verdant and interesting in it’s tastes. woody a little..with a taste that is almost spice like… I’ll see how other steeps go today.
Final Count: 121
Another from Anlina that i tried yesterday. Funnily enough, i much prefer their secret garden tea to this one, even though the two seem like they should be similar. This one, while berry and vanilla like – has a bitterness to it and the tastes don’t blend together nearly as well as the other offering Anlina sent me to try. Given the choice, i’d go for the other tea :) Good to try though because this would have been one i’d have picked up to try!
I tried this one yesterday, mostly to decide whether or not i should send this off to a tea friend who would prefer it. I’m still torn and it’ll take a few cups to really decide BUT if there are folks out there who ADORE this, they should speak up, as i may be willing to send it out. This is a really strong tea from stacy. if you can manage to steep it for about a minute it’s not too much…1.5 and it gets close to needing milk and sugar lol
