8172 Tasting Notes
I hate it when reviews disappear. I pulled this one out to be my puerh for today after reading misslena’s tasting note on special dark. :) I haven’t had this one in a long while so i figured it was time to work on my sample of this, especially if i place a mandala order for special dark! I’ll be drinking this most of today and that suits me just fine. My little turtle needs more tea love and this is a great tea. I’d say it’s a toss up on any given day whether i’ll love this or special dark most :)
dexter sent this one on to me and since it was a HUGE quantity, i’m going to inflict..er i mean share, the rest of this with the other girls :) Esp now that i’ve tried this both as a regularly brewed tea and a latte. Truth be told the latte was better but it just doesn’t have the strength to it and that deep root beer flavour that i get from the david’s tea black version. A decent cup, but not a favourite :) thanks for letting me try this dexter!
Final Count: 118 so yay for that! Maybe today i can get another 3 in…
another one from yesterday. I’ve been hoarding this tea because it’s my favourite pineapple tea and i can’t get it anymore. :( I WILL drink it slowly, but it’s locked away in a tin and a metal overflow box because everytime i opened my cupboard i could smell the delicious pineapple taunting me and willing em to drink it. Yesterday it was my treat for a very long night of staying awake for work. And it was amazing and delicious and everything i love about pineapple tea. thank you stacy!!
not crazy about this one…but then i didn’t expect to be. there’s a slight bitterness to this cup and floral notes in the background. this is more fruity than muscat tasting… it’s sort of like apricot? i guess? sort of that vague fruity note that i get sometimes…never comes across as a specific for me. overall…“meh”
this is the sort of keemun i don’t love. This is a fruity, plum sort of keemun. For me, this results in a weird after taste drinking this. I’m glad i compared it against what-cha’s other offering since if this one was the one i’d tried, i don’t know that i’d have ever risked the other one. If you like fruity sorts of teas…this would be a keemun for you. It’s just not for me!
