5595 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! I finally got the chance to try this as a latte and man it is deeeeelicious! Nothing says good morning awful friday which had me up late last night testing, like this. It’s like drinking a piece of liquid tiramisu. Yep. I am loving this as a latte. I’m guessing with a teeeeny bit of sweetner it would bring the flavours out even more. woot! thanks boxermama!
weird…so apparently I haven’t reviewed or rated this tea before today. It’s not the first time i’ve had this so who knows what i was up to. I’ve been drinking this tonight in an effort to stay awake for testing…it’s not working. I’m so exhausted and ready for a vacation that i pretty much am ready for bed most nights by 7pm. I’d write a better review but i’m super duper tired. This is not your typical puerh…it’s different and strangely intriguing. I like it a lot!
Another new tea i tried today. I’m gradually working through some of the teas that i haven’t tried yet…especially since they’re small in size in alot of cases. This is a pretty decent assam. i think i prefer it over the other one that i tried from ATR, though it’s still not knock your socks off sort of enjoyment. There’s a decent malty sort of taste with a bit of sweetness that i like.
heeeey guess what? this is an APRICOT tea. there is no peach here and it makes me super happy. I’ve gotten a little tired of peach teas, so it was nice to have one that was most assuredly “apricot.” I’m hoping that this is as delicious as a cold brew, because then this would be something for me to keep on hand during the summer! That will be up next.
sipdown!(189) and that’s my one for the day since i don’t forsee any others today. I’m trying to get my 1 every day and use my other tea to try the teas that are in my cupboard that i haven’t yet tried, or that are in quantities that will take 2-3 cups. I had this one tonight while doing dishes as a latte. i think this is where the tea really shines. it’s caramel and sweet and delicious. I much preferred the latte versus the regular brew. I’d pick this up again :)
I had this in the wee small hours of the morning and i am happy with it. It’s not a blow your mind sort of tea but it does have a strength to it that i like, without being wimpy or only malty. there are some nuances here that i am enjoying. I’m glad i have a bit more to play with to see what else i can discover with this tea :) first impressions…good!
