7440 Tasting Notes
This came out “again” today and, having not had this the first time david’s was selling, i stopped by to pick some up since i DO enjoy pear teas. Also, herbal teas are something i’m allowed to pick up here and there as i don’t have an abundance of them. Overall thoughts on this one? Not bad but not a 90’s sort of tea for me. I’m not sure this really reminds me of POACHED pears, but it is a pretty typical pear tea. There’s a bit much in the way of cinnamon to me, but it comes and goes with various sips, so it’s not the end of the world to me. A decent cup, though i’m not sure yet if i’ll pick up 50g. especially with the tea festival coming up, and my small purchase of picking up more french toast.
omgsrsly sent this one my way. I’ve never tried anything from this company so it’s nice to branch out. i’m sort of with dex on this one. It seemed much to fussy. When i was able to get the right balance of time and temp it was pleasant enough but then i’d have random steepings that just didn’t taste all that wonderful. even with essentially flash steepings. I’m ok with this though, because i know i have lots of other puerh that i adore :)
SNOW DAY! Ok so not really, because things are still open and what not but this is the first day of “real” snow we’ve had…some that might stick around and i’m SUPER EXCITED! totally stayed home to work so i could take a break and be able to play in the snow. yes i’m a child lol. kicked off the morning with some JW – here’s hoping they can come out to the toronto tea festival this year or next :)
Final tea from today – having a slacktacular tea drinking day after “binge-ing” on tea all weekend. So there’s wine now…and that’s delicious. This tea is growing on me the more i have it, so maybe there’s a particular time of year for me to get behind jin jun mei’s…. still working on figuring that out. heh
