3073 Tasting Notes
sipdown! This has been my mid morning puerh while i try and figure out the monstrosity that is my other half’s new coffee maker. lol It’s a breville gind n’ brew thing and takes up a ton of room. However, it makes him happy and since we got it for free with my airmiles, i can hardly complain.
This is a lovely puerh! I’m so glad that nofars shared it with terri who shared it with me. This is one of the few puerhs not from mandala that i’ve had that i really enjoy. It’s a very relaxing, dark and roasty sort of puerh for me. Initial steeps were good and then it unfolded into a deep delicious cup of goodness as it progressed. :) thank you both!
sipdown! another tasty almond tea. I’m trying to drink other teas alongside my puerhs today to help with the sipdowns. This one was altogether pretty tasty, though not my favourite almond tea :)
sipdown! I have a lofty goal today of trying to get down to 160 so that by next weekend i might possibly have reached my black friday goal, two weeks ahead of schedule. It’s lofty because i have a large number of puerhs to drink and those take time..however i’ve been up since 5am because of work so i think i’ll manage a few more than usual haha
this is a light, sweet, floral puerh. It’s pretty meh for me but i think that’s because it’s closer to a white tea than anything.
sipdown! didn’t get as much of the deliciousness as from the first time i had this but i am still a happy camper with this tea. thanks for sharing dinosara!
sipdown! I adore this tea and i’m super sad to see it go. All this makes me want to do is travel over to europe for a weekend of shopping at tea stores! :)
(168) nice thing is, i picked up 2 David’s teas to try but sipdowns today = a cupboard that hasn’t moved!
I really like the “chili” aspect of this tea but i can do without the chocolate. I really don’t like the way that a lot of teas “chocolate” flavour tastes, and david’s tea is no exception. it was worth a taste at least!
sipdown on this one as i’m sending the last little bit out for tea friends to share :) I quite enjoyed this one this morning as well – a nice complement to breakfast! Thanks dinosara!
I had this in the morning and recall very little now that it’s so many hours later. I did enjoy but a better note will have to wait for a time i’m better at recording things closer to drinking them :)
we’ve got some duplicate entries going on for the new david’s tea collection but this one has the most notes on it so logging it here. They gave me this as a free sample in store today. I was pretty much convinced i didn’t want any of the winter collection based on the fact that i generally don’t like david’s tea and other steepsterites had posted such “glowing” reviews for the collection. However, free sample taste? sure.
Verdict? watered down pineapple upside down cake from della terra. More oily, less tasty…lacking in overall OOMPH. Pass.
want.more. sipdown! I had this one tonight in latte form and it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! seriously! I need to get on board the puerh latte train or something! I have a sneaking suspicion i’ll be trying this with more of my puerhs going forward…especially the few flavoured ones i have. so good! Thank you so much dinosara!! love it!
