4669 Tasting Notes
Sip down! No way I’m going in to work on 3 hours of sleep…so maybe, just maybe I can catch up on some of my single cups that have been inviting to be had.
So final verdict on this Assam? It’s not the variety I really enjoy. It’s not a bad cup but its the wrong kind of fruity and it borders on being a little bitter/astringent even steeped at a lower temperature and brew time. I’m glad I tried it, but I’m not sad I’ve finished it up :)
SIPDOWN!(216) I have been sorely neglecting drinking anything besides the 2 mugs i manage to bring to work…that’s how stupid insane things have been. But i’m home before 8pm tonight…and i don’t have to start working on things again until about 11pm. so i have a bit of time to have a few cups of tea tonight. And figure out if i can find a way to try work from home tomorrow so that i get a jump start on my tea drinking for the weekend…i have a bunch of 1 cup teas to finish off!
I figured given the way the last past couple of days have gone, i might as well do it right by starting my day with a cup of awesome! I always find myself hoarding this tea and then when i try it, want to drink it all down immediately. This really is a fantastic assam that i’m so happy to have tried.
i just need one thing to go right today…. 7.5 hour workday topped off with another 7-9 hours of over time. No lunch, system issues, finally home hoping to have a little downtime to get food and drink in me…no mail…too late in the day to have tea since i’ve been sleeping poorly and don’t want to risk it…all my verdant points are gone (40,000+)….email out to team, hope they can resolve this…
yep it’s that kind of day. at least i had this tea 12 hours ago to start the day? forgot how delicious it was…need to pick up more.
THIS is so much better than i remember! Cold brew for the win! With a teeeeeny tiny bit of sweetner this is a pretty delicious cup of ice tea. It makes my happy as well since this is one of my older teas that i need to get to drinking down. I’m trying to do a multitude of things with my cupboard these days – sipdown 52 teas; get to 150; finish off my small sizes of things; try everything in my cupboard that i have yet tried…. you get the drift. :) At least it makes for a bit of fun, organising and re-organising things haha
While i wouldn’t call this an overly “mango” blend, it is pretty fruity and tasty in cold brew form. not too sweet and not to tart..and totally not hibiscus-y :)
I really do quite like this one cold brewed with a little sweetner. After tonight’s giant mugs i have just enough for one more cup of this before it’s out of the cupboard. May not get to any sipdowns today BUT i am at least well on my way to being able to do a bunch in a row of single cups heh
This is like sweet, cooled liquid cotton candy in a mug. Tasty!
