5583 Tasting Notes
thank you dexter for sharing this one with me. While this tea is on the sweet side, it’s also on the wimpy side. the flavours aren’t super strong, and there’s a bit of astringency to it that leaves my mouth a little dry. Not a bad tea, but there are for sure others that i’d prefer over this one most days.
Sipdown! Terri sent this my way and i figured today was a good day to try this one. I need a little kick to my afternoon. Sadly, the ginger in this one isn’t present enough. It does build while you drink this, which is nice but i miss the ginger from the first sips. I’d also like this to be slightly less smokey. I think that would balance the ginger a little better. It just means that i might need to try and blend my own sometime in the future :) I did like this though, so thanks for sharing terri!
I had some more of this since the BBB Box has arrived and I am sadly behind in finishing up the other teas from the last round. I’ve had a very productive day so far today – organised some tea that needs to go out, cleaned up my tea cupboard, cleaned the bathroom, backed up my shows and for the past hour or so, i’ve been working on my photo book for 2012. Ian and I made a promise to keep up with doing a photobook every year to capture some of our favourite memories. They aren’t big books – typically about 30 pages or so, but they are time consuming. We recently had our 2011 book delivered so i’d like to get 2012 and 2013 done this weekend (well 2013 done to this point anyway). We use Picaboo, and though they don’t always get things right on the first go, they now have free shipping, and this weekend FB friends get 50% off.
I ended up letting this tea cool a bit much for my liking, but i am still enjoying it cold. Thanks again for this one Tastybrew!
