7480 Tasting Notes
this one worked a little better today. I actually preferred it as it cooled, so maybe i’ll try this as a cold brew. I’m still not quite getting buttermilk but as i do like the base, i can see finishing this off. Not a reorder for me, and i’m glad to be getting the chance to share with a few folks :)
noms. at this rate i’ll be through all my WP teas in record time! I think i’ve been starved for new straight teas so these have been a welcome addition to my rotation. Not much to keep on saying about this one beyond the fact that it’s a great little tea full of delicious cocoa notes and a slight sweetness that makes me smile :)
mmmmmm boychik sent this one my way and ive been saving it for a day when i could drink it all day long! :) Rather than take a long series of notes on this, i wanted to just sit and enjoy it. Overall impressions – this is a fantastic puerh! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great journey.
this was a bold, strong tea to begin with and lasted for maaaaaaany maaaany steeps. Initial steeps were sort of earthy but also sweet and smooth. i picked up leathery notes and what i guess i would call sort of citrusy? i think i’m going to have to track this one down and pick up a cake. thank you so much boychik. I’ve really loved some of these fantastic offerings you sent my way!
i pulled this one out this afternoon as i wanted a bit of a break from some of the caffeine. I have a bunch of this but now that it’s moving in to fall, i tend to forget about my fruity teas. i really enjoy this one and i’m glad i picked up more of it. i always want to eat the giant cherries, though i haven’t yet succumbed heh
oh yum. what a lovely tea to start the day off with. It’s sweet and delicious – no bitterness or astringency. I love this tea a whole bunch. I also really enjoy that different companies have this tea and they’re all a little different. Some have been smokey, others, like this one are sweet without any hint of smoke.
lala sent this one my way so i could get in a taste before comitting to ANOTHER tin of damn fine tea – i think this will bring me to 6? in the house because yes, that’s right…i bought this after having it today. So good. I am immensely happy that lala was kinda enough to send this my way because i would have passed on this for sure, simply because 4.4oz is a LOT of tea…especially when you’ve got 4? other damn fine tea tins that are mostly full. lol this was just the right balance of smokey and not bitter and yes. yum. that is all.
Final Count: 81 (thank you lala!!!!)
