7975 Tasting Notes
mmmmm this was one of the teas i snuck from terri when i was visiting her. I’m trying to get through some of my samples so that i can get back to focusing on my larger quantities of teas. This is a really smooth tasting tea. Now, granted i’m a little sick so i’m not sure i’m catching all the nuances today but it’s a rather pleasant cup of tea today. Not overly malty, but still has some maltiness to it. It’s smooth, and there’s no astringency to this. The description mentions floral notes, but i’m not getting any of those, and that makes me a happy camper. Is this better than my favourites from Yunnan? Nope. But i wouldn’t turn a cup of this down for sure. :)
sipdown! this was my other cup of tea from this morning, mostly because I’m feeling guilty that i’m so far behind in my sipdown goals….because i lost a month of tea drinking AND continued to buy things LOL. and pick things up from terri… eep! Back in chicago tomorrow as well, so i need to try my best not to pick up more tea from tea gsch… or adagio while i’m there…. heh.
this was a nice cup of tea for today…the weather is MUCH cooler than phoenix lol and being sick = i want comfort. :)
oh man… 6 weeks down of this travelling thing for work and i’m ALMOST at the end of this. I’m home for a day, which has basically allowed me to switch out my suitcase and be off again tomorrow morning. I managed to relax just a little in phoenix, so my body decided to get sick. Thank god there’s only 2 more days of travelling and then i’m done for a time. It’s been a great experience but seriously, going for a month without my tea is not a good time. So of course, first cup today was this one :) good ol’ reliable. i love this tea.
Tea Count: 134
wow a day and a half of working…careful now steepster, you’ll wear yourself out ;)
This hit the spot this morning. Somehow i brewed it just right and it’s a fantastic cup of tea this morning. that could also be, because i’m doing my usual stressing about the next leg of this epic 8 billion week journey. This morning it’s off to minneapolis, and the saddest part of all? Mandala is too far for me to travel to and verdant’s tea house is closed monday’s. bah.
goodbye January tea! haha I only have 2 more teas to get through in order to be within 6 months of my oldest tea in my cupboard. Of course that means october i have 14 teas to finish up that are nowhere near sipdowns lol. i will likely pick this one up again in thei future. I just wish more of teavivre’s teas where in 50g bags as its challenging to want to pick up 100g of multiple teas at once – same reason i struggle with Norbu tea orders. :(
picked this up with terri as i suspect the version from traveling tea is this version since it’s named tisano cacao. so i suspect they get it from tisano. Since i’ve wanted to try tisanos version, picked some up. I’ll have to do a comparison later against the stuff from HI and see which i prefer. for now though, this was a tasty cup!
(cupboard is around 127..down from 134 thanks to my overnight)
