3108 Tasting Notes
Morning tea! Totally out of it today so it opted to brew this one versus the others I brought with me today. I suspect I’m a little dehydrated from the travelling and temperature change, so I need to make sure I’m drinking enough. Water today. However there will be tea! I am hoping to get through some of my bagged teas this week and teas that are either almost at the end of het biggie package like this one or teas I don’t seem to want to reach for when I have 100+ other teas to drink lol hoping form at least a couple sipdowns this week.
Not much tea today…travel day so yeah. Managed to sneak a cup of this in with dinner tonight but tomorrow will go better I’m sure. Gotta keep drinking!
sipdown! (178…so 28 teas to go until black friday!) That makes me super happy since i suspect the next week or so will be less sipdowns than normal. I will likely reorder this as it is an interesting puerh that resteeps super well. I’ve been drinking this for most of the afternoon while i tried to wrap up work for the weekend.
this is kinda like a black tea that forgot it was supposed to be a pumpkin spice tea. Dinosara sent some my way and it appears that our impressions of this tea are similar. If i were going to drink a pumpkin spice tea…it wouldn’t be this one. this is like a snooze fest for my mouth. Oh well…love trying new teas! even if they’re not that impressive haha
nope. you can’t make me keep drinking teas i don’t love. Like this one. It’s “ok” but i prefer lime chiffon to it any day. So i’m done. Out damned spot! Out i say! or i guess that’s tea. Be gone! Into the swap box it goes. :)
yeeeeechk. also knows as uber blech. yeah i don’t like this one. Tried again today and that’s that. Into the sample swap box it goes.
sipdown! (182) woot woot! There’s still time in the day for more sipdowns too which makes me happy. I enjoyed this one while i had it, but it’s nothing i need to keep around always. Reasonable black tea that i wouldn’t refuse though.
Sipdown! I’m sad to see the last of this go, but at the same time i think i’ve landed on brioche as my dessert cookie favourite tea…for now. This one is satisfying and delicious and i wouldn’t turn it down but it doesn’t need a permanent place in my cupboard :)
Sipdown! On second look at this one, I’m less of a fan that i originally thought. Maybe i steeped this differently this time but the sweetness is slightly bitter. There are other assams out there i prefer much more, so this isn’t a keeper, though it’s not a terrible tea!
mmmm had this as a normal tea today and it was still delicious! I think this could potentially be a permanent or semi permanent fixture in the cupboard for when i want a vanilla fix. I suppose that will depend on how it compares to the 1-2 others i have in my cupboard..but so far it’s looking good!
