3707 Tasting Notes
pretty sure the version i have is not this version, as there are goji berries in it…but i am lazy tonight, and i don’t think anyone has entered this version in to the database. it’s insanely late..just got home from work team building exercise but i drank this waaay early today. Still not enough tea in me to make me a happy camper…yet but it’s a start. Tomorrow i should be home earlier in order to be able to sit, work at home and get in some evening tea. This version is tasty, but not as much as the original version i tried…but certainly not bad!
Soooo i haven’t had any tea since Sunday. When i woke up this morning i knew i needed a couple of old favourites to get me through the day since my next few weeks are going to be a little crazy. Got in last night, and now i’m at an offsite for two days which means the work is piling up! There’s a release over the weekend and then i’m back on a plane for a couple of days, which means more work piling up. Long story short…looks like there will be some overtime for a while! eesh.
This is such a wonderful tea to kick off my time back in Toronto. On the upside, i think the team is going bowling tonight which will be awesome! even though all i want to do is go home and sleep haha.
another sipdown for today (178) as i’ve been drinking this with focus this morning, running through a number of steepings to decide where i land on in terms of this one. Final verdict? While this is a lovely oolong, it’s still an oolong for me. So the rest of this will be going to a couple people whom i think would love to try this one.
sipdown!(179) this was one of the samples that Kallieboo! sent my way in our international christmas card swap. I have had mixed success with darjeelings but this one is wonderful! There’s a fruitiness here along with the muscatel taste. Unlike some darjeelings, there is no astringency or bitterness. I have a little bit left, which i’ll be sending over to terri to try as i think she might like this one as well :) thanks Kallieboo!
sipdown! (180) my other morning tea while i run around panicked that i’ve forgotten something :) This morning this is malty with an edge to it that i don’t love. I don’t think i’d restock this tea even though it’s not a bad tea. just not one of my favourites. I’m happy to have been able to pick up a few teas from world of tea while in ottawa though and it looks like my dad has found it as well, since he bought be two more for christmas heh
