5368 Tasting Notes
oh man… i am going to be so upset if the newer harvest of this that i have isn’t as awesome as this last batch…because i was NOT impressed with the first round of this…had almost decided not to bother getting it again and then…well..i love this harvest that i have. Funnilly enough the zhu rong that i got the last time, i am not a fan of and the first time i got it – it was amaaaaazing lol so harvest CAN make a difference to extremes in some cases….though generally i haven’t found huge difference like this in harvests :)
I had this one again today as my afternoon tea while gaming. Apart from the fact that while brewing it, my entire house smells like caramel, i am a fan of the blending of sweet caramel with the “sour” fruit notes. I’m really glad i gave this one a shot even though it seemed like an odd thing to mix when i first read the description in the store :)
Final Count: Still 100 …
this was another of my teas from this morning. I’m trying to spend today just enjoying whatever i feel like drinking. I might even bust out more puerh if we don’t have to go over to friends. Still enjoying this one and i’m glad that after getting a little from dexter, i was able to pick up more for myself. This is my favourite black tea from river tea so far i think, as i generally prefer their fruit teas. :)
I’ve been drinking this one all morning while i had a lazy, slow relaxing restful morning. Watched a few shows since i was up early and let my other half sleep in. We’re supposed to go over to friends today when all i really want to do is sit at home watching bad or good tv drinking tea. It’s always the case after an overnight.
I adore this tea. I love the multiple steepings i get out of it, and the deliciousness of this. It’s sweet and smooth and had a lot of flavour going on – unlike most white teas that i’ve had. I know this will “turn in to a black tea” but it delivers everything that i love about the few white teas i’ve had that have been wonderful, without skimping on the fullness of the cup…if that makes sense. I’ll have to pick up more of this when i run out.
someone mentioned Lupicia on facebook tonight, so this was my other tea for this evening, as i haven’t had it in a while. I picked up 100g of this last time we orderd so i’ve still got plenty. It’s a nice reminder of “summer” now that the cool air of fall has been moving in. I really love how close this is to real honey dew :)
Final Count: 100
I tried this one out tonight…yes, i’m still awake! lol this one isn’t bad it’s not as dark chocolatey wonderful as MF’s mousse au chocolat or as chocolatey as i want it to be, but it’ll do. The base is nice, and for those looking for “organic” teas, this IS that. I kind of want to try this as a latte and see if the chocolate and the base come through the milk..more to come as i play with it! :)
