7178 Tasting Notes
All gone! finished up this sample as well today since my cupboard was just imploded. this was a sample from WP, so no worries there, but as a mental note i don’t think i need this one in my cupboard. it’s pleasant but not out of this world. And heaven knows. teas that are WOW are better than teas that are ok. :)
Final Count: 166
Finished the last of this today since i SHOULD have my package in the nearish future with more of this. Stupid post office in the US decided it needed to keep my package for 3 weeks in customs. so much love for this tea…it’s like mousse au chocolat but with chestnuts. so excited to have a full 100g of this soon…..sooo sooon..
today has been a gloriously productive day at work, productive playing with the dog AND productive with tea drinking. this was another that i pulled out today to have. I still hold that while this is a lovely tea, it’s much more caramel cheescake than frank’s version. doesn’t make it a bad tea, just a different tea. but i’m ok with that :)
it’s like this tea is cursed in my house. Every time i drink it, i either over steep it or i drink it so quickly i don’tt really pay attention to it. I’m guessing that means it sits somewhere in the middle of the road for me haha. either way, a decent bold cup with a strong brassy note this morning because the rental dog made me over steep this one.
gosh damn i love this tea. It hit all the right notes today since i managed to not only remember to brew it for longer, but also cooled the temp down a bunch. AMAZING how good tea can be when you don’t mess up the parameters lol. Glad to have tried this one, though not necessarily a repurchase for me since it’s a little fussier than others that i love just as much. today this was more like an 85 haha
tea from today – i’ve been slacktacular at steepster lately – still drinking tea but no time to really log things or read the boards… i managed to get down to 117 this past weekend, but with tea from friends, i’m sure i’ll be back up to 150ish once i get a chance to log them all :) Not really complaining though since sharing is caring, what goes around comes around…uh you get the drift (and they’ll get the tea!). haha i know many people hate this one but i always enjoyed it…getting down to the last of it that was gifted to me by keychange and variatea…yay for herbals and awesome tea friends though :)
