8069 Tasting Notes
mmmmm this is fun and tasty. I like the spicy edge to it that makes it interesting. Really glad that folks have been awesome and let me try out a number of WP teas before i went to place an order (there are a bunch of you! so thanks!) it’s like an echo of sichuan caravan…only not because it’s a totally different tea and has no puerh lol but there’s something there that reminds me of it while being very much it’s own tea :)
Final Count: 96
sooooooooo….i picked this one up, since a number of folks were fairl certain that this would be a tea for me. Also, the idea of pine needles in teas, appeals to me because i adore bellocq’s pine needle tea. What i failed to realise…and that’s on ME…is that this has a jasmine presence. As in…that other thing i dislike a lot…though not as much as bleramot…though sometimes MORE than blergamot lol.
Soooo i love every thing about this tea…. the needles…the initial sip..the brew… until the jasmine punches me in the face. I can probably finish off the rest of the ounce i picked up, but this is not for me.
Terri picked this one up for me and i’m ever so glad to have it. The only thing that makes me sad is that i like 2013’s harvest a little more, but i waited too late to try and place my own order. So now, the only version that i can pick up is this one. And it’s not bad…i really like it…but i recall loving the 2013 a little more heh. That being said, i love this and want more. Thanks so much for facilitating this one landing in my cupboard terri!
