4862 Tasting Notes
nothing like a good cup of yummy to go with tiger assam! yes, i’m also drinking this… and hoping against all hope that they’ll let me finish this night asap.. 8 mins until i have 15 mins before i have to leave the house… wooooooohoooooooo!
i am totally digging this tea and how it interacts with the waffle cookies and the tiger assam. double dose of assam :) mmmmmmm
HELLLLLOOOOO WORLD! Nothing says no you are not getting any sleep like TIGER ASSAM! RAWR! yes..i’m in a mood. 30 mins until i have to leave my house to head to the airport and i still haven’t been able to pre-check in because air canada sucks at the moment…and i’ve been up since early o’clock and oh yes.. i gave up…i am succumbing to the sheer delight of a bold black tea…and waffle cookies.
At least it’s cooler outside…i’m mostly just sitting..anxious. want to be at the airport and yet not but i have to finish working and oh my god i wish they’d figure out what’s broken!
oh yeah..this tea? go get it if you like bold yummy strong teas that say HEEEEEELLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
SIPDOWN! (229) Happy to have made it under 30 before i leave for a week but it sucks that i really don’t have the effort/energy to put in to bringing tea with me and trying to find somewhere to make it. I don’t mind this one, but it’s not a re-order for me. I’m glad i had the chance to try it but that’s as far as i need to take it heh
thank you shmiracles! this was a tea i wasn’t expecting to like, as it’s a green oolong. So i’ve been putting it off until today. I had the tea earlier today that had osmanthe in it…so i figured today was a good enough day to try this.
Overall impression? Not too shabby. It’s not overly floral, which is a plus for me and it doesn’t have that weird oolong-y taste that i don’t like. But there’s also nothing here to really entice me to come back to it. I’ll drink the rest of my sample but nothing to be wowed over…but it IS another tea off my “ALL THE TEAS” list! :)
mmm i like the one. Especially when i get distracted and drink it lukewarm and the strawberry POPS and has an aftertaste of brown sugar. yep. I’m glad kittenna convinced me to get 50g of this even if it was a discontinued tea. At least i found another david’s tea i enjoy and it’s been fun drinking it down :)
SIPDOWN! (232) Guess my next goal is trying to get to 200 by the end of July even with my inbound orders. eek! I finished off the last of this one by dumping it into a pitcher to cold brew today. Mostly i just wanted something cool to be able to drink tonight while i’m testing over night. Another release…another sleepless night. I find that it’s hard for me to get around to hot brewing teas with releases, so i have a few cold brew teas on the go.
Still enjoying this one quite a bit, so i may need to pick up more someday.
i think i’m almost done with this tea, or it really is just a tea for winter with it’s spiciness. I had a cup of this one because kittena had made reference to French Toast possibly tasting like this one. It does smell like this tea, but the taste is less similar, though i understand why it would certainly remind someone of this tea. Overall, not a bad cup for this morning.
