5370 Tasting Notes
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.
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!
I had a cup of this in the late afternoon as a bit of a treat. I haven’t had any in aaaages and i wanted something light and fresh. This did the trick! I really like the light watermelon taste that Stacy has created with this one. It’s not something i always want in my cupboard but i love rotating it in occasionally :)
I had a cup of this one today. I’m still trying to get around to tasting all my smaller samples so that I can be ready for orders at the end of the month. I had hopes for this one, as i love a good berry tea but this one falls short. I’m hoping that i can play with the steeping parameters a little and find it’s happy spot but it’s just lacking. I don’t know how to explain it any better than it’s just not as intensely flavourful as i want it to be.
