7757 Tasting Notes
144 yesterday and now i’m back up to 151…which in a way is cheating a little since there’s only one steepster entry for Wild Monk Sheng and i’ve got 2012 AND 2014 in my cupboard! WOOHOOOOOOOOOO!
um… not focused on anything right now but those cakes… they’re so cute being all like LOOK AT ME! 100 grams of sheeeeer awesomeness! yeah that’s right…excuse me while i go cuddle with them.
sad sad last cup of the evening…though i should say 3 or 4 since i drank a bunch of this. reeeesteep! thanks again to jump62359 for sending this one my way because it’s wonderful. the sort of happy, tasty tea that makes your day better for having been in it. after testing tonight i dug this one out and just sat and enjoyed a few cups of it…relishing the last of it…wishing there was more lol. i am a fan!
Edit: Final Count 144 (+ 22 teas incoming via orders ignoring swaps…maybe i can get to 140 before the weekend!)
…speaking of teas that smell like feet…. jump62359 sent this one my way and i’m thinking it’s the coconut that is turning me off. I had to put this one in a closed tin by itself to keep it away from me lol. But, as it the case with me, i pulled this one out tonight to finally bite the bullet and try it out. Surprisingly enough, this brews up to a nice enough tea. There’s hibiscus in it, which doesn’t bother ME any, but others are all full of hate sometimes for the hibby, hibby shake. lol Anyway, end result is that it’s not something i need to stock in my cupboard, and because of the smell i couldn’t drink it often…but it’s not bad on the whole. Sort of a more summer like fruity cold beverage type tea. :) (that smells like feet!) giggling
thanks jump62359! haha i’m having fun with the adventures of jump62359 tea!
First off…thank you Angel for your incredible generosity!
of course i’m now working again and my review is going down the tubes. however let me say that i don’t much enjoy green teas. They’re never on my list of top things to drink. I can buy a green tea and let it sit until it’s no longer fresh and it will take me forever to drink it..
All that aside.. i REALLY enjoyed this one. It was my “i’m going to spoil myself” tea tonight. It’s tasty and you can really get a sense of how fresh this one is in terms of when it was picked. It’s crisp and juicy and full of “life!” I have shared the other samples with my friends hoping that they will enjoy it as much as i did and pick some up from Angel because even a non green loving tea fiend…can get behind this one! thanks so much angel!
jump sent this my way….as a practical joke i’m sure….since i do not like jasmine! but i’ll drink everything ppl send me. even smelly toe tea. :) I couldn’t drink much of this because it was REALLY jasmine smelling but the half cup i did drink was pretty decent for a bagged tea. however i was super glad i had my other tea! lol
oopsy..had this logged under the wrong tea but luckily i found it! this was from terri in the BBB’s most recent trip and i need to keep drinking it! this one was really enjoyable today as i worked on mini things in the morning. I’ve found that teas like this, that are smooth and delicious and not quite bold and malty enough to make me focus on them, let me get lots of work done. I think i like the one from the other day just a touch more, but this was still really enjoyable! thanks terri!
