4043 Tasting Notes
I’m bagged…tea bagged? lol yeah.. so tired. Massage tonight in rep for china, followed by dinner and board games with the other half as a “de stress and spend time together before you disappear for 2 weeks” kind of thing.
I had this in the afternoon…it reminds me of another tea that i can’t place at this precise moment. tasty but reminiscent of something..
This one’s a little more ginger-y than my first cup so that’s nice. I like seeing how the actual presence of ginger impacts the tea. I really like how the two flavours come together in this tea. Still on the look out for a delicious pear (found grapefruit, now i’m on to pear!). This is probably my favourite so far.
Hello old friend. It’s been a while, you see i’ve been busy. But now, i’m trying to figure out which of my friends are coming on a trip with me and i needed to remind myself what it’s like to wrap my tastebuds up in you. (deep breath) it has been too long. thank you for this moment this morning. I needed the calm before the storm.
Thank you Raritea for this tea try! The verdict is still out on this one since midway through enjoying my cup, my parents called to a) freak out about my impending trip to china that they’re worried about since OMG their only child is going to be so far away in a communist country on her own and AAAHHHHHH! (nevermind that it’s on business) and b) Show me all the tea that mom was awesome enough to pick up while she was in London @ selfridges…namely 3 different teas from Mariages Freres. Yep! I get to have Mariages Freres sometime in the future whenever i can meet up with my parents (they’re about 3 hours away from me).
But anyway this tea? It smells divine and seems to taste mighty swell…but i kind of drank it without paying attention to it lol
I tried the last sample i received from this company today and needless to day i have a bit left over for another round of it. From this one, i’m getting mostly a rooibos taste, which i don’t mind but is clearly lacking the blueberry piece of the tea :) Holding off rating this though since i was at work and not paying much attention to how long i steeped it. That being said, wouldn’t it be nice if the website had SOME information on the tea? lol sigh
