5609 Tasting Notes
not crazy about this one…but then i didn’t expect to be. there’s a slight bitterness to this cup and floral notes in the background. this is more fruity than muscat tasting… it’s sort of like apricot? i guess? sort of that vague fruity note that i get sometimes…never comes across as a specific for me. overall…“meh”
this is the sort of keemun i don’t love. This is a fruity, plum sort of keemun. For me, this results in a weird after taste drinking this. I’m glad i compared it against what-cha’s other offering since if this one was the one i’d tried, i don’t know that i’d have ever risked the other one. If you like fruity sorts of teas…this would be a keemun for you. It’s just not for me!
Another sample from my what-cha order. This keemun says “caramel aroma and taste” I’m not sure i’m getting that unless i think really hard about it. Most people would probably find this one to be on the smokey side, though not extremely so. This is the sort of keemun that i add maple syrup to! However, this has a nice smooth body to it, and i’m enjoying it today. I’d be curious to compare this one to teavivre’s offering but sadly my cupboard is all out of that currently heh
I’m starting my overnight with this baby. Mostly because i am trying my very best to take the time to use my pot, enjoy my tea time and relax whenever possible but also because it’s a sipdown. A sad and delicious sipdown. The other plus is that since i’ll be up all night, i can basically drink this straight through until Sunday :) Not much to say about this one that hasn’t already been said before. Will i order this one again? 100% yes.
Also another from dexter jury is still out on this one. it was interesting to say the least, and for a girl who doesn’t much like oolongs, i wasn’t finding this one as offensive as most oolongs lol. I just need more time with it to really focus on it…i’m just way too exausted tonight. Prbably was a stupid idea to drink it…but at least i have more :) and it was a good cup with dinner!
FInal Count: 126 – i’d like to get to at least 120 this weekend…preferably 115.
dexter sent this one my way for me to try so i pulled it out tonight. It’s got that rootbeer flavour for sure, but the honeybush in this one is a little woody… so i prefer the david’s tea black version. that being said, i need to try this as a lattee tomorrow so that i can see how it holds up with the milk, since i also generally only love the david’s one in latte form :) thanks dex!
