7609 Tasting Notes
another from terri! I’m attempting to get to 115 teas today while i work on making soup; cleaning the house; seasoning my first teapot and possibly baking something delicious to go with our homemade mac and cheese tonight. All our friends are off visiting family for the holiday so we have a grand ol’ day of doing nothing at the house…no commitments,just relaxing and enjoying things. Sadly this tea is not my favorite. there’s a note i’m getting here that is just meh… boring and meh. I’ll pass the rest of this off to cavo and see if it works for her heh
i have a confession to make. Jin jun mei is terri’s tea. It’s one of the few places where our tastes diverge as she loves a good jin jun mei, while i haven’t yet found one that knocked my socks off. This one, is so far, one of the ones i’ve enjoyed the most. Terri gave me a package of this one to try and it’s really nice. Lots of sweetness here to enjoy. It still won’t win me over completely but i’m glad to have tried it. Now to find others that i like :)
i snuck some of this from terri’s overflowing cupboard when i was there just to see if this was something i can get behind. I for sure got the chocolatey notes in this one as i had it this morning, but there’s something about the base of the tea that isn’t my favourite. An enjoyable cup, but i’m glad to just have my little sample cup to drink:)
last cup of tea tonight since i got distracted with vacation planning. We’re trying to decide between a new place in cuba (different from where we went before) with upgraded butler service etc…as a splurge OR a 7 day disney cruise to a bunch of places we haven’t been before. both options being equally awesome. :)
I am enjoying this tea a bunch. It’s a nice ginger tea that still retains the citrus aspect which makes it a little less intensely ginger, but still has a bit of a kick to it, which i enjoy a bunch.
Final count: 123 (i may make it to the teens after all before tuesday!)
farewell hot tropic! while i enjoyed you while i had you, i likely won’t need to pick up more of this ever again. I generally find that most David’s teas aren’t anything i keep to keep around permanently or on a regular basis, they’re much more of a sort of tea where i pick up 25g, drink it and then i’m done. this one being no exception to that :)
farewell my delicious chocolate tea. It was a pleasure having out in my cupboard. If only MF sold this on in bags and not as a special edition tea. Then it would be worth restocking. However, at the price of the tin + tea, it’s a luxury really and hard to justify unless maybe i get over to france :)
I had a cu of this before passing the rest off to a tea friend who wants to try the two teas we have all blended, separately. (this + creme brulee). I actually think i could live without the creme brulee tea and just keep this one on hand, though i do love the taste of the two blended. Perfect cup to get my going out of the house. Costco/the mall today before the holiday tomorrow. It’ll be insane and i’ll hate it but it need to be done.
