6601 Tasting Notes
I’ve got som backlogging to do and no idea how long my internet will be up to let me do it. While we have power here at our place which i am SUPER thankful for, the internet is still spotty and having issues.
Let me preface this by saying i HATE that all verdant’s blends seem to have a steeping parameter of boiling, 1 min. The teas never taste delicious and wonderful until you change those…and really? every tea needs boiling? hmmmm
This one is from yesterday. It’s tasty, but nothing to write home about. That being said, I would also be fine having this AND stacy’s peppermint patty in my cupboard as they both bring something slightly different to the table. :)
i gulped this down before getting hauled outside the house on this very miserable wet evening. We decided very last minute to rent a zipcar and run over to the grocery store and ikea to get groceries for the week and stock up on frames. Anyone in need of reasonable basic frames – ikea’s are on sale for 50% off right now… so you can get a 5×7 for 2.50 for example, or a poster size for 10$.
Anyway long story short…this was tasty and i loved it but i can’t tell you anything beyond that, so i’ll share my thoughts next time! hahaha
oooooh eeeeeee yeaaah! this is fantastically interesting! :) if you’re following me, you know my oolong thoughts.
this? this is a delicious cup of fruity, plum, cherry, sweet goodness. It’s..different.there’s a base note in this that is decidedly NOT fruity but helps to pull it all together. seriously…this is just a fun tea to be drinking right now..and so very unexpectedly different. neat!
this is very nearly a sipdown as with oolongs from stacy, i tend to pick up the .5OZ size so that i can see how it works for me. This reminds me more of a black tea with only the tail end of the sip being oolongy.
I drank this up without even realising it…this really has grown on me every time i drink it. Bumping the rating as a result.
mmmm this one cooled a bit while i finished up the dishes. I was supposed to go out and run some errands today but i just haven’t been able to get motivated. Instead i’ve been drinking tea, watching tv and doing odds and ends around the house.
I quite like this one. It’s not a bold, dark or moody black but it is smooth and sweet with a splash of something else hanging out in the background. I’m enjoying this one, though i think i need to have another cup when i’m not making the whole house smell delicious with my brisket that’s slow cooking. I think it’s messing with my tastebuds a little haha
woohoo! this is a great green. For someone whose preferences lean towards blacks and puerhs, this is super tasty. It’s clean and crisp and delicious! Seriously. I’d consider adding this to my cupboard as one of my few green teas. just. yum. thanks fuzzy P!
edit: 160 mission accomplished for today haha
eesh first tasting note lol I hate that haha. Brewed this one up alongside pumpkin milkshake. I am not generally a fan of oolongs, so i only ordered a small quantity of this one to try it out. I have a mini mission to try all of stacy’s teas and so far, i’m doing pretty well haha. I don’t love this as much as i ended up liking the sparrow oolong i picked up from her but this is pretty tasty. It’s on the lighter side of things, with a sweetness that comes through while you drink it. mmm quite liking this one! thanks stacy!
