5919 Tasting Notes
Sick with a guest here and heading out to travel means ill be quiet around here for a bit I suspect. Montreal tomorrow, Ottawa and the up to the cottage for some much needed RnR. Hoping to get a chance to drop by a couple tea shops but my cupboard will be happy if I don’t haha. Tying to stick to old favourites while I work on getting better even though my tastebuds seem unaffected. Brought this one out with me today when we drove down to Niagara Falls. Yay waterfalls!
Figured since I was already drinking an oolong, I should have some of this with it. Especially since this is very nearly ready for a sip down which will help out my ever growing cupboard just a wee bit. I haven’t yet added the teavivre teas that came in the mail yet as I don’t want to to pen them until I’m ready to send off the split tea to boxermama and Terri. No sense open the tea before we have to. So I have a number of teas in my house that aren’t in my cupboard, but I don’t consider it cheating since they’re in storage haha sadly that will change In a few week I suspect, when cavocorax arrives in Ontario to claim all her teas from me :) maybe I can get sort of close to 200 before that happens since I know she’s bringing tea with her from the gang out west!
This one is nothing I need to keep in my cupboard because I just don’t drink a lot of oolongs. Nthing wrong with this tea but I think I’d likely stock the milk oolong from mandala first if I were picking any to have in my cupboard all the time :)
Sip down! This is one that kitenna should try if she hasn’t already. Th smell and taste remind me of the mandarin silk from the persimmon tree that I gave up to her because I didn’t like it haha. Tis version, or variation, that I received in my swap from nicole is tastier. I don’t hate this one, and the flavours seem to mesh better than the one I tried from the persimmon tree. Maybe it’s because I’m sick but I suspect that this might be a win for the girls here who are fans of oolongs. Nonetheless I am enjoying this cup, so I’m glad Nicole sent it along. Not a reorder for me, but only because I’m not a huge fan of green oolongs. But those who enjoy that type of tea would probably quite enjoy this one :)
Spdown! Figured thiswould be a good one to have since I’m not well today…both the piers and the cherry being strong enough to it through any sick that might be messing with my taste buds. Haha I was right. While this is a pretty good puerile blend from natures tea leaf, I’d prefer to see if they have a flavour other than cherry since this one is a little artificial tasting as you go through the package. I love that the puerh taste doesn’t get drowned out by the cherry flavour! Over all a really nice tea from natures tea leaf, just would rather a different flavour :)
