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.
I’m lazy this morning so to recap on yesterday’s other teas…
-bailin gong fu (the last of the sample from kimquat thank you again!
-watermelon lime slushie – not quite a sipdown unless TERRI tells me she wants to try this one
-after dark – sipdown…100g in 5? months…not too shabby. latte style and so good.
-Laoshan black infused with vanilla + cacao – OMG so freakin’ good yesterday. ie. perfect.
Final Count: 97
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.
