7437 Tasting Notes
This was a free sample with the teas that i picked up from the Blue teapot while in Vancouver. it wasn’t one that i’d been thinking about picking up, but it’s not half bad. Kittyloves tea had it right when she said that this is a “mixture of sweet and sour tones and crispness.” overall a nice enough tea but nothing to get all excited and crazy over!
Another tea from jump62359 that i had earlier in the afternoon. this one wasn’t bad, though i STILL don’t like that whole black/green blend thing. it always confuses me…how do i brew it? what’s going on! AAAAAAH! Either way, this wasn’t bad but nothing i need to drink again.. It’s fun to consider the fandom blends though in terms of the story lines and how this tea might be someone’s idea of what that concept was like…. :)
this is one of my oldest teas at the moment – purchased last September. I ended up getting “extra” because of mishaps with my order but now i’m wishing that I hadn’t lol I mean i didn’t pay for it, so i could just get rid of it but that’s a waste considering i like this tea well enough :) Soooo i’m trying to drink this up at least once a week to work my way down. it’s an interesting vanilla, though i find i like it best when i mix it up with a more chocolatey blend :)
jump62359 sent this one to me in our swap and it’s a tasty one! I love getting teas from local shops in swaps, since they don’t always have an online presence. This is a really tasty black. it’s not super bold but there’s no astringency and it has a smooth profile to it. It’s different from most of my black teas, being neither malty like some or fruity/juicy like my taiwanese blacks. It also resteeped well, allowing me to have a couple of cups in this very busy day. thanks for sharing this one! I feel like i have some digging to do to find out more about this tea haha
for anyone obsessed with lupicia’s hawaii blends – there are 2 on sale onlnie right now.
that’s my public service announcement for today because mostly people just suck. lol I’m having a cup of this tonight before bed because it’s tart and juicy and delicious. Now that i have a bit more of this from bayswater, i get to play with it more. it’s not super chili enough but it’s tangy and zippy and can i get a whoop whoop…yeah i dunno.. lol
