8055 Tasting Notes
backlog from yesterday – thanks again to dexter for letting me try this one. On the whole, this wasn’t a bad cup of tea, but i’m glad that this is one that i don’t feel the need to order from WP. There was a bitterness there that i didn’t love. still not a bad cup..just not one i need to keep around.
Final Count yesterday: 114
dexter sent this one my way so that i could try a few more WP teas before i place an order (gotta love tea friends who share!) . so the minute the water hit these leaves it was like ZOMG CHOCOLATE..HEEELLLOOOOOOOOOO! lol
ugh work… ok so long story short. need this to come back for september so i can have moar. that is all.
Boychik sent me a sample of this one, and i figured today would be a good day to try it out. Since i’m losing yet another weekend to testing the release, our boss told us to try and take the day off – we all laughed because who can actually do that. However, we are all working from home today in an effort to at least have an easier day. I am for sure doing my best to get lots done but also take time to focus on my tea. I haven’t really taken notes on this one, but i have been enjoying the developing flavour of this one. I wasn’t impressed with the first couple of steepings, even after a quick rinse. however, as this has gone on, i’ve started to enjoy the smoothness of this one. I like that there’s a bit of fruitiness to this, though it’s softened by the woody notes here as well.
Thanks for sharing boychik! someday i’ll be better at this whole reviewing puerh sort off thing :)
Cavocorax sent this one my way since i don’t typically pick up David’s Teas. I don’t adore mint teas, but i don’t hate them. This one is made interesting by the addition of fennel and pepper. I’ve had this a couple times now, without a tasting note and since this is my last cup, i figure I’d better land somewhere on this. If i was in the mood for a mint tea with a twist, this would be a good go to tea. Thanks cavo!
sipdown! the never ending tea bag is finally finished lol This brings me down to 4 teas that are outside of my 6 month range, so not too shabby at all. I’ve really enjoyed this one as a smokey tea, though after getting through the amount that i’ve had – i wonder if ive gotten to the point of just being done with it. the last few cups were more of a struggle to get through. however, that being said, it could also be the result of having a number of smokey teas that i want to finish. I tend not to always want to be drinking a smoke sort of tea. :) Either way, i have enjoyed this one a lot!
