4942 Tasting Notes
You know when you’re sure there’s a sip down and then evethough you drink giant mugs of tea, there just isn’t enough to actually sip down? So now I have enough left for a single “normal” cup of this tea. I’m ok with that as there is a large butiki order planned in my near future. It’s actually part of the reason I’m trying to figure out which teas I’m very nearly done with to sipthem down and make room for them to come back OR be replaced with other butiki teas.
This one is very nearly always going to be a restock. I love the blending of the caramel, vanilla and Assam. Stacy pretty much rocks my world, even the blends I don’t love as much are always expertly crafted and have their merits :)
Sip down! No way I’m going in to work on 3 hours of sleep…so maybe, just maybe I can catch up on some of my single cups that have been inviting to be had.
So final verdict on this Assam? It’s not the variety I really enjoy. It’s not a bad cup but its the wrong kind of fruity and it borders on being a little bitter/astringent even steeped at a lower temperature and brew time. I’m glad I tried it, but I’m not sad I’ve finished it up :)
SIPDOWN!(216) I have been sorely neglecting drinking anything besides the 2 mugs i manage to bring to work…that’s how stupid insane things have been. But i’m home before 8pm tonight…and i don’t have to start working on things again until about 11pm. so i have a bit of time to have a few cups of tea tonight. And figure out if i can find a way to try work from home tomorrow so that i get a jump start on my tea drinking for the weekend…i have a bunch of 1 cup teas to finish off!
I figured given the way the last past couple of days have gone, i might as well do it right by starting my day with a cup of awesome! I always find myself hoarding this tea and then when i try it, want to drink it all down immediately. This really is a fantastic assam that i’m so happy to have tried.
i just need one thing to go right today…. 7.5 hour workday topped off with another 7-9 hours of over time. No lunch, system issues, finally home hoping to have a little downtime to get food and drink in me…no mail…too late in the day to have tea since i’ve been sleeping poorly and don’t want to risk it…all my verdant points are gone (40,000+)….email out to team, hope they can resolve this…
yep it’s that kind of day. at least i had this tea 12 hours ago to start the day? forgot how delicious it was…need to pick up more.
