5597 Tasting Notes
So this has been my only tea for the past few days while travelling for work again. I’m back home again but only for a day before it’s off again. I’m hoping i’ll get a bit of a chance to have a few delicious cups tomorrow morning before it’s back to drinking this again…since i MAY have taken a few extra bags from the hotel i was in haha. I actually am ok with this one in bagged form, though i’d like to try it in loose form. I also haven’t yet figured out if i like the normal version or the “organic” version better…unless they’re both the same thing but package differently lol. all in all, happy to be home…will be nice when i can stay here for a few weeks in a row!
Final Count: 87 (courtesy of the single cup samples cookies sent me..so i’ll be back down in no time!)
Spa room at the trump and for once, there’s a kettle in the room! and tea bags! So because KS was giving me grief on the blerg, i figured i should open this one up and try it at the very least.
Still not a fan of the blerg but this isn’t awful….but it’s not delicious either. I can handle drinking this because i’m cold in the room, but i may need to see if they’ll bring me up more english breakfast instead haha. This is smooth…and i like the base, but the blerg needs to go! :)
sipdown! airport time in an hour or so and i’m scrambling to get a few more things organised as well as a bit of work done and tea drunk up lol I finished off this one since i’ll have maybe a half day of tea drinking in november with the travelling that’s happening so i might as well get a few sipdowns in :) This one has grown on me…i found with about 2.5 min steepings it was a perfect morning cup…a little bold, a little astringent but smooth and just what i need in the morning :)
last cup of the evening. Make note, watching the strain when it’s dark out, you’re home alone and it’s been snowing outside…not the best idea. lol not that i scare myself or anything but maybe happy shows are a better idea. Iforgot to pick up more of this with my last verdant order, so i’ll need to try and remember. I really like this one in the fall/winter. it’s a cosy go to evening tea.
