6403 Tasting Notes
mmmm so one of the best parts about working from home occasionally is that it lets me get out some of the teas that either require more time and focus from me (puerhs, i’m looking at you!) or teas that don’t taste nearly as delicious in a travel mug. This is one of those teas. I LOVE this tea…lime, marshmallow goodness but travel mug just makes it less amazing. I’ll be sad when this one is all gone.
So…while i was in Paris, this was one of the teas that i contemplated picking up from the Fauchon store because you could get it outside of a tin purchase. For some reason, i opted not to (i’m guessing it was the other 3.5kg that i’d already bought). So when i returned home and saw that MissB had thoughtfully included some of this in her last package i was SUPER excited. So much so that it was picked to be brewed this morning, even though it’s decaf and i could have had it in the evening. I was just super excited to try it and see if this was a regret.
It is. haha. I won’t cry over not picking more up, but I wish that i had. This is a really nice cocoa/raspberry/caramel tea..and it’s decaf! The bear shaped sprinkles in here don’t even annoy me like most sprinkles do.
I’ve had this before but don’t see my review. I opted for a long western brew of this today as i want to save my gonfu patience for later today with some puerhs since those are my closest sipdowns and i have a number of new puerhs to try as well as share with friends.
This is not my favourite from mandala but it’s a delicious one.Smooth, sweet, caramel and molasses. Not too heavy but not a light tea either. Great for a work from home tea day!
sipdown! that’s going to be such an infrequent things for me for the next little while so i may get back in to tracking them more :) I had the last of this early in the morning to kick off my day since i knew i only had a single cup’s worth left :) I am still a fan of yezi teas. they have great customer experience and their teas are pretty delicious. :) Will have to restock again once i get through the remainder of their teas in my cupboard.
