6481 Tasting Notes
Ok seriously….something was working for the plantations that TTC gets their teas from this year. This is another tea that i hadn’t previously tried in another lot and it too is a delicious sweet, fruity tea. Similar to butikit’s PTA, but different. I like this probably the least of the three lots that i picked up (sun moon lake and the yuchi wilkd being the other two), but this is still a great tasty tea. cherry notes are here, as well as that sort of generic stone fruit kinda of taste. there’s a little hint of vnailla like flavours as well..but it lacks the bready sort of feel of the other two. delicious!
i’ve had this one before but didn’t rate it. Feels like maybe the last harvest was better for me, or i just did something silly today when brewing it. I didn’t dislike it, but it was a lesser cup of tea for me today with a slightly bitter edge to it. I’ll chalk it up to being tired and brewing it silly this morning for now and re try this again soon.
Finally getting around to having space in my cupboard to open a few more teas that i haven’t tried. This is one of those sorts of teas. I need to have this one again, to really reflect on it. I remember enjoying it, but i can’t recall why or to what extent. overall a positive tea drinking experience but i’ll have to write a more proper note when i get to having it again.
I pulled this one out of the cupboard a few days ago to try, in case i needed to break my no ordering rule to make sure that i get a bit more of these harvest from ttc before they’re gone. This was amazing. As a general rule, i’ve always really enjoyed this tea from TTC, regardless of the lot. I have to say though, that this lot is incredible. it’s cherry, malty sweetness in a cup. It was a couple days ago, so i can’t recall much more than that, but i do remember being really sad when i finished my travel mug lol
backlog from a couple days ago – i’ve been busy lately with wedding stuff. I’m going to be super sad when this one is gone, but i’ll be comforted with the fact that i do have a bunch of fancy french flavored teas to amuse myself with after :) I don’t get a lot of the espresso from this these days but i’m ok with that since it’s the chocolate strawberry i’m more of a fan of lol
I’m almost out of this – maybe a couple more cups and while i’ll be sad to see it go, it doesn’t have nearly the intense flavour that i hoped that it would. It’s delicious, but i want more butterscotch AND more mocha. But white rhino…i miss you. lots. :(
Final Count: 171 (swaps and tea bags finally added to the cupboard)
