8063 Tasting Notes
this was my morning tea since i needed a bit of a PUNCH. I did no rinse or anything like that and this morning it was a dark brew with just the right level of cinnamon running through it. slightly sweet but not cloyingly slow and the puerh still came through. Resteeping it now that i’m home and this is a still a great dark brew but now i’m getting a little more vanilla cookie like taste coming through along with the cinnamon.
Cavo – this is the one you need to remind me IN FUTURE to set aside for you to try :)
Also…thank you missB for accommodating my wish list and finding this one for me!
this + cacao = my tea for travelling to and from the festival today. I’m utterly exausted today but it was well worth the trip to go there and back before babysitting tonight as i found the teaware i wanted and got to spend some time with the girls. Always nice to catch up. Now that i’m home of course, i just want to go take a nap. ugh.
this is another from missB that she sent on for whatshesaid. Given the smell, i couldn’t simply pass it on without trying a bit, so i snuck a tiny cups worth from the bag to try. This one will be hard to let go. hahah it’s a delicious hazelnut, vanilla. Probably one of the best that i’ve had in a while.
sooo many teas in my cupboard and that number is just climbing haha hard to believe that i was at 75 in december….and in the nearish future i may be damn near pushing 200 lol it’s ok though since a lot of them are smaller sizes that i can sip down in a couple of cups. PLus it gives me incentive over the year to really stop buying teas to get down to 50 by the end of the year haha.
this is is a really nice tea and one that i’d consider getting again if the price point was compareable to other malty sort of teas that i like. A nice find from what-cha!
i have been digging this tea lately at night…not sure why but i’m going with it…esp since it’s one of the larger quantity of tea that i have from david’s and that doesn’t happen often. I have been out of sorts a bit lately with work and lots of tea incoming and trying to get organised…my tea cupboard is currently out of control but i’m ok with that since it gives me motivation to sipdown over the few months coming up AND more incentive to not buy tea… I figure i’ll sort things out after i get through the tea festival this weekend..provided that the last of my tea shows up as well..otherwise, all bets are off until mid february lol
Final Count: 116 (but let’s be honest, it’s likely closer to 200 by the time everything gets here…)
Dexter sent this one my way and i’m really glad i got the chance to try this as it would have likely ended up one of the ones i would have ordered eventually. I’m not a fan. lol I get very little honey and no pear…instead it’s sort of just a weirdly tasting cup of tea. It’s just not delivering on anything that i hoped it would. :( Thanks for sharing though dexter! i appreciate it!
