5059 Tasting Notes
Finally finished up my january stash of this tea and i can move on to the 4oz of Spring harvest i just picked up. I did brew up a cup of each today just to compare the two harvests. Last years harvest was slightly more malty and had slighty more cocoa notes in it…with a side of what could almost be smoke. The spring harvest is clearly a newer tea, with it’s “freshness” coming through. it IS different from last year’s, but honestly if i wasn’t drinking them side by side, i’m not sure i’d be like OMG this is so different! I do prefer last year’s slightly, but not enough to be sad that i have 4oz to drink lol with that, i only have 6 more teas from January (6 months) to finish up….which won’t happen but at least i’m working on them! :)
i tried this one as a cold brew last night and it was a little disappointing. somewhere between hot and cold is where this one should be – so maybe i’ll try hot brewing and cooling next heh. It’s not BAD, but it’s just quite as strawberry as i want it to be. heh oh well, still a good tea for summer!
Final Count yesterday: 126
sipdown on this one yesterday – finished it off cold brewed with a splash of lime juice and it was perfect :) I may think about restocking this one after i get through my lime gelato! woot woot! (thanks again dexter!) love lime drinks cold brewed in the summer, even if this one needs a bit more lime to really rock
backlog from yesterday…my other half made me go to bed at a more reasonable time because i’ve been running myself ragged, so i didn’t get a chance to finish up yesterday OR order tea :(
i had this one yesterday + cacao and it was fantastic. the perfect afternoon tea after getting to go for SOUP DUMPLINGS! haha yes i’m a little obsessed.
Dear dexter all is forgiven…at least one of the peach teas you sent me is a hit…there may be others, but this one has reminded me of why i really liked peach to begin with. That’s not to say i want an abundance of peach teas, but i had this one cold brewing…came home, drank it up – it was like drinking liquid fuzzy peaches without the sugar. IE. it wasn’t too sweet – but it was just a DIFFERENT peach flavour than the usual. So after drinking all that, i made the last of it as a hot brew and it too was pretty tasty – though i prefer the cold one :) thanks for sending this one my way dexter!
Final Count: 128
thanks for this one omgsrsly I finished the last of this today while trying not to fell asleep at work in the afternoon lol. This one’s not too shabby. it’s got a bit of a bitter/bolder than i like it hit at the end of it, so i likely won’t restock unless i can share it with others! haha but i did enjoy this :)
