5775 Tasting Notes
SIPDOWN! (208) yeah…figured i’d better get one more in tonight to make up for my lack of tea drinking on monday. I cannot believe that it’s only tuesday. It for sure feels like friday! Speaking of friday – Tall Ships are here! well they will be on thrs so that’s always exciting. Here’s hoping for some warm weather to go down to the harbourfront and check them out friday evening before we need to get packing and get organised with our house sitter. heh
I still enjoy this tea as far as greens go but i still prefer a good solid black or an herbal tisane! Thank you again lala i do love your random teas :)
quick notes on this one from this morning – trying to get back on top of my tea logs and notes. I pulled this one out as it’s nearly done but will take more than just 2-3 cups before it’ll be a sipdown. This tea + maple syrup = happy sil. Especially on a day like today with issue after issue. It might be what saved me from taking anyone’s head off today haha :) Like this keemun a bunch but i have grown to understand that assams>keemuns for me since i first picked this up.
(Backlog)Pretty sure my body has shut down in preparation for vacation next week. Either than or i’m pregnant…which is a less than likely possibility. I had an incredibly long day yesterday and went to bed at 9:30….so i barely drank tea and did not log anything. But this was one of two teas i did drink yesterday and enjoyed thoroughly…and no…no sipdown lol
Mini sipdown. I have officially finished up the last of my first package of this one. I have an unopened package still sitting in my cupboard but i’m fairly certain that will just be tossed into my swap box for someone who really loves this tea. Because i don’t. Not even really kind of sort of. Frank’s blueberry zabaglione is better and even that one was not the blueberry pastry/dessert tea i was hoping for. It makes me sad…i had such high hopes for this one..
(on the plus side? I’m down to 210!! I could totally make it to 200 by next weekend…which would be a week early! go me!)
Figured i should get around to trying some of my newer unopened teas, if only since that will also make them sipdowns sooner :) Especially for those that are in sample sizes! I picked this up because i wanted a tarty berry tea to cold brew in the summer. I know a lot of people would find this a little sour with the lemongrass and hibiscus but to me it’s the perfect blend to add to a splash of lemonade! Making a refreshing cup of cold tea in the summer. It’s also something that i THINK i can get my other half to drink…once i add the lemonade to it :)
