6311 Tasting Notes

Sample from kimquat I have to confess that i’ve been meaning to order from single origin teas since Nicole introduced them to me, but haven’t yet found the time in my tea ordering line up. I’ve had some amazing teas from them since, and a few less wonderful. This particular one for me, falls somewhere in the middle. There’s nothing here to really knock my socks off taste wise, but it is a smooth sort of cup that i’d welcome as an every day sort of tea. There’s a little drying to this one, but it’s not overwhelming so i don’t mind it. A good solid cup of tea to start the day earlier today.

This was my puerh for the day. I may try and see if i can another one in later this evening, but if not, this one has been fantastic to drink over the course of the morning/afternoon. I am really a fan of Mandala’s original cakes. There’s something incredibly satisfying about them. I’ll be picking this one up again.

kimquat sent this one my way and this was a cup of heaven this morning. Seriously, this is one of the best blends. I really wish that i had been able to snag some of this when Stacy went out of business.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
