4043 Tasting Notes
…aaand now it’s gone. thanks again to courtney for sharing a little bit with me so that i could reconfirm that i still like this, AND try out her LB + Cacao creation. Both are delicious and both make me want moar…naaaaaao! only i’m being good and trying to drink up more of my tea! Maybe i’ll treat myself to an order at the end of March if i can get through my old teas! old of course is relative since i only have 2 left from May 2013, 2 left from June 2013 and then i’m in to July 2013! Which was my goal for the end of March along with getting down to 140.
I feel like i’m making good progress lately while still enjoying my teas and not forcing anything with ANY of my goals. Tea is meant to be enjoyed and loved and help me relax so it can’t stop being all of that! :)
Final Count: 138
I opted to try this one tonight as i’m making an attempt to try all my last remaining samples before the next batch gets here. This is a very puerh, puerh. I didn’t really get much of the vanilla or fruit from this one. Ysaurella sent me this one and i’m glad i have more to play with. I enjoyed this, but more as a straight puerh than a flavoured one. haha I’ll have to see if i can coax the flavours out :)
mini sipdown of this today since i still have a brand new package of this in my cupboard that i picked up in December, BUT at least this older package is finally sipped down! That brings me one step closer to being within 6 months of my oldest teas in my cupboard (not inc. puerhs). I really like this one on cold, dark dreary days since it adds just a splash of sunshine to things :)
dear courtney….all your smokey teas are belong to me. I very much wanted a smokey tea today and so i pulled this one out since i didn’t want to open the keemun that is in my cupboard. Besides, half a step closer to another sipdown, so yay for that! This + maple as is my usual take on smokey western brew teas and i was a HAAAAAPPPY camper today. yes indeedy! :)
Morning tea for today and so very much needed. I’m exhausted because of the time change and because i didn’t get to bed early enough yesterday. Got distracted watching Helix and The following so i paid for it today. Still glda to have this one in my cupboard and still surprised how quickly i seem to go through 4oz…
i forgot to log this one. I had this much earlier in the day and while it was plesant enough, I think that i’ve outgrown it. It might work better for me with some cacao added to it, but there’s something about the chocolate aspect of this tea that i no longer love as much as i first did. Similar to the chocolate O from the tea spot..my preference for it has waned over time. Dropping the rating since it hasn’t stood the test of time. It’s still a nice blend, but there are others i’d prefer before reaching for this one now.
mmmm i can get behind this tea as a tea from the select box. To have a box full of teas like this, i would maybe pay the 25$. This is a slightly smoky tea..in that it comes across as the memory of smoke…rather than being smokey..combined with the sweet caramel notes, it’s perfect. I don’t get much of the sour cherry from this, but i am a fan… yes..this is lovely. Except, i can’t buy it..soooo booo!
