6160 Tasting Notes
this was a sample in my last verdant order that i thought i’d get around to today since if i effed this one up, i know cavo has a ton coming her way haha. I’m not sure if i’m getting vanilla off this one…but it IS a smooth tasting shou and a nice reminder of why i DID like some of verdant’s offerings (but please don’t get my started on intelligent nutrients…) After a few steepings, this has become a thicker tea…deepending in taste and leaving me with much more of a woody sort of taste with something else that i can’t quite place.
Final Count yesterday: 152
this was one of my teas from yesterday – a generous sample from Wymm tea that came wrapped in paper. This was a a nice sheng…full of honey and creamy notes, with only a hint of bittnerness on the back end. Unlike some sheng’s that i’ve had, it didn’t turn in to a bitter mess that i didn’t want to drink (i’m still learning!) haha later steeps had more hay notes to it but they were still smooth and slightly sweet. I may have a few more infusions of this today if i get time.
thanks so much for sharing these teas with us Wymm!
i didn’t to drink a lot of tea yesterday (or likely today) but next week should make up for it. I took this one with us on our adventure out to oakville to visit a tea shop YYZ had mentioned. Best part about it? not only was this tea totally satisfying (with a splash of maple syrup of course) but i bought my first tea tray!!! YAAAY!
