4875 Tasting Notes
Sip down! Thank you for this one nicole this is a clearly a yunnan tea and is another delicious tea from capital teas. This might be the last sample that I have from Nicole, though I’m not 100% sure since my tea stash is back home. Hanging out at the cottage means whatever teas I tossed in the box to bring up with me whenever I can spare a moment. The rain is coming down now so we’re hold up in the house, listening to music, playing board games while outside the food is cooking on the fire :)
Sip down! Won’t get too many of these unless I can find time in the next couple of days at the cottage to drink more tea but I did bring a few with me so that I could at least try. Having a cup of this while I wait impatiently for the boys to get up. Lots to do today in Ottawa before we finish the drive up to the cottage! I’ve really enjoyed the teas Terri share d with me from the puritea….enough to think about a small reorder in the future, especially since the little sample packs are so cute! Tanks for sharing Terri. Rating this one later as iPad rating is the suck lol
Aother tea I managed to nab tonight. I’m not sure if its Ottawa water so I’m glad ill have more to try when I get back to Toronto, but this did not taste like any other oolong I’ve had. Neither green nor roasted. It was intriguing to say the least so I’m looking forward to trying this again when I get home. It’s like earthy and yet not…there isn’t that toasty taste I get from most roasted oolongs…yep. Interesting :)
Sick with a guest here and heading out to travel means ill be quiet around here for a bit I suspect. Montreal tomorrow, Ottawa and the up to the cottage for some much needed RnR. Hoping to get a chance to drop by a couple tea shops but my cupboard will be happy if I don’t haha. Tying to stick to old favourites while I work on getting better even though my tastebuds seem unaffected. Brought this one out with me today when we drove down to Niagara Falls. Yay waterfalls!
Figured since I was already drinking an oolong, I should have some of this with it. Especially since this is very nearly ready for a sip down which will help out my ever growing cupboard just a wee bit. I haven’t yet added the teavivre teas that came in the mail yet as I don’t want to to pen them until I’m ready to send off the split tea to boxermama and Terri. No sense open the tea before we have to. So I have a number of teas in my house that aren’t in my cupboard, but I don’t consider it cheating since they’re in storage haha sadly that will change In a few week I suspect, when cavocorax arrives in Ontario to claim all her teas from me :) maybe I can get sort of close to 200 before that happens since I know she’s bringing tea with her from the gang out west!
This one is nothing I need to keep in my cupboard because I just don’t drink a lot of oolongs. Nthing wrong with this tea but I think I’d likely stock the milk oolong from mandala first if I were picking any to have in my cupboard all the time :)
