5357 Tasting Notes
Alright! time to get back in to the swing of things. First tea since i’ve been back – yesterday I wanted nothing to do with tea, but today i can hear it calling out to me :) We had a blast in Cuba and for the first time EVER i didn’t get a sun burn at all. I’m totally browned…though all that really means is that i now look like most of the population does when they’re NOT sun tanned – think middle of winter white :)
Figured i’d kick today off with one of the teas i took with my to Cuba and go from there. I’m still not entirely organised and ready for back to work tomorrow or for tea drinking….but i’m getting there. First up though, a couple hours of bike riding to be out and about on this fine Canada Day!
another backlog from last week – i brought this with me to cuba as well as a cold brew or late night drink. I managed to have it a couple of times, though i think i’ve finally figured out that it’s lime chiffon and orange & cream that will be the staple “rooibos” blends from della terra in my cupboard. I just like the tanginess from the lime better and the creamy orange deliciousness.
Sooooo…..I kicked off vacation with this tea. All I can say is that the last half cup with of leaf that I have will be my homecoming tea. And then I will wait…until August when this is back…and them I will buy 4oz….maybe more. And it will be mine! All mine! Mwahahahaha ha
I can’t bump the rating up easily on y phone but this is at least a 99…so incredible and delicious and sweet and tasty and…I want more…nao!
SIPDOWN! and that ladies and gents, puts me at 200. Not that i’ll stay there for that long since i have birthday orders to come in july and there’s a mini package coming from nxtdoor that will likely be here tomorrow. So I need to keep on drinking! But now…now i just need to try and aim for drinking things that i have lots of, at least more than 2-3 cups of.
This tea? It’s not bad but it’s not great. It’s actually a little watered down for me more than anything, and i believe that i added a bit of extra leaf. There’s a nice smokey flavour to this, but i just want it to be a bit…“more”
quick catch up on my tasting notes before bed. Got stuck on call so the only thing i could concentrate on was chatting with my technology friends and painting my toes lol which is SO unlike me… girly, i am not.
Tried this one cold brewed, and while i like it better than hot brew, i’m still not in love with it..but it’s decent.
