3037 Tasting Notes
I also had a cup of this earlier today after my puerh time. I needed something lighter and refreshing and totally different than the previous teas. It also helps that this is one of my older teas (though by “old” i mean 7? months). I’m still trying to work on sipping things down AND finishing off the older teas. I’m pretty excited that i only have 5 teas left from January of this year, and two of those are puerhs, so they hardly count heh.
This tea is still delicious and creamy but now that i’ve had a number of other teas, i’m dropping the rating just a little since Mandala’s milk oolong is pretty darn delicious compared to this one :)
had this again this afternoon after i finally got tired of the two puerhs i spent the afternoon enjoying. I have a sneaking suspicion this may end up at kitenna’s house before too long as she seems to have enjoyed it more than us. there’s something about it that i just can’t get behind. It’s lovely, but not the tea for me anymore.
Also drinking this one today….. First steep reminds me of old woods that have just had rain.
Later steeps are even more enjoyable. I can see where people pick up on sweeter and spicier notes. Having fun drinking this throughout the afternoon. Not many sipdowns today but some really enjoyable time with 2 puerhs.
Drinking this one today….should be a fun time. First steep reminds me of old books. (Hey no one said this would be a good tasting note…more to come)
Really enjoying the later steeps of this one. There are earthy notes here, but it’s kind of like tasting a wet forest. looking forward to more steeps.
mmm bold delicious cup of tea to go with my banana pankcakes and maple syrup. It might be after lunch but we just had breakfast! my other half was a little slow getting up this morning heh. who cares! sooo good!
sipdown! i had a few cups of this this morning while cleaning up the house a little and getting calls about work stuff. grrrrr. this was a really nice, light, mellow tea. i’m sorry to see it go but really enjoyed having it around!
backlog from yesterday – this was my other tea to accompany dinner. I wanted to see how close to brioche it tasted, and the verdict is, not really at all haha. I prefer brioche but not by leaps and bounds. It just has a whole cookie feeling going on, whereas this is tasty but not quite embracing the whole feeling of a delicious cookie.
I had this yesterday with thanksgiving dinner at friends. No turkey but we managed a pork roast so that was fun. I’m so exhausted from work that i fell asleep in a chair after dinner, but it was still a good time lol I still really enjoy this tea :)
Cold brewing didn’t make this much better, in fact i think i’d probably argue that it made it less drinkable. ah well, at least i tried!
backlog from yesterday. This wasn’t nearly as tasty as the first time i had it, though i’m not sure why. Maybe i just wasn’t in the right mood.
