5605 Tasting Notes
Morning cup of tea as i’m trying to also rotate through some of the older teas in my cupboard as i continue my sipdown journey. I’m hoping i can hit 210 by the end of the weekend, though i’m working for part of it, so not sure how feasible that is. I’m glad my parents picked this one up for me, as i’m not sure i would have picked it up on my own. This isn’t a bold cup of tea but it is a delicious straight black.
52 tea of the day…getting closer to finishing off a few of the bags I have, so that’s nice. This one is a nice one to have for every now and then. It’s not something I want to drink a lot of, since I’m not a huge fan of coconut and though I DID discover in Cuba that I love piña coladas now…it turns out I’m less a fan of them hot ( but I don’t like the cold brew of this one) haha. Still though, I can understand why this one won third place :)
Teabagsipdown! Thank you for sending this one my way CHAroma! This one smelled pretty darn good. I just wish the flavour was a little stronger. I find with this one that the flavour is mostly in the tail end of the sip. However, the base of this one is pretty nice with no astringency. Overall a pretty good tea bag for those times when those are just the easiest :)
Nearly through the last of this. Have one other container of this cold steeping in the fridge and then it’s gone. I think that this might be one of my favourite straight teas to brew cold. There’s just something satisfying about this one – a little sugar and/or lemon and i’m golden. :)
Another tea from the morning. I think that this one is starting to wane in terms of my love for it. Not that it’s a bad tea, but i think i like it less than i first did though. I’m not sure if it’s because i’ve been brewing it in my travel mug, so i’ll have to have another cup of this when i’m at home.
