5059 Tasting Notes
Still trying to decide which two teas to bring with me. I know it’s silly but at the same time, how to narrow it down to just TWO! Black for the morning and a herbal for the evening. Had this one today to remind myself to relax and enjoy. I’ve been steeping it all morning so i’m a little hoped up at the moment. Starting to enter “OH MY GOD I AM LEAVING!” territory lol
SIPDOWN! well kind, but not really since it’s not in my cupboard BUT since this is my last morning with access to my tea stash, i decided to celebrate getting my cupboard down to under 180 before my trip with my last cup of the sample Stacy sent me of the custom blend we’re working on. Since we’re hoping to have it finished by the time i get back, i thought it was fitting. Plus i just wanted something tasty and delicious. :)
mmmm having this this afternoon. I have a ton of things to do tonight when i get home – pack, charge camera, back up cameras, computer etc…, figure out my carry on…all that jazz! In addition, i need to make a decision on which ONE? TWO? of my teas are coming with me to china in the event that pollution causes me to have to stay indoors more than i’d like to.
Still enjoying this, and will look at picking up some more whenever i get down to New York, mostly because I don’t necessarily want 4oz.
mmmm this is pretty tasty this morning. I wish i weren’t thoroughly exausted. One more day – thankfully my other half is cleaning the house and doing laundry today. YAY! I like the sweet/sour of this matcha. I’m not sure that I’d pick it up for myself but it was on my list to try. Not because i don’t enjoy it, but simply because there are others i love more and i’m trying to keep my matcha flavours manageable. :) Maybe i’ll bring this into the rotation in the summer :)
I’m bagged…tea bagged? lol yeah.. so tired. Massage tonight in rep for china, followed by dinner and board games with the other half as a “de stress and spend time together before you disappear for 2 weeks” kind of thing.
I had this in the afternoon…it reminds me of another tea that i can’t place at this precise moment. tasty but reminiscent of something..
This one’s a little more ginger-y than my first cup so that’s nice. I like seeing how the actual presence of ginger impacts the tea. I really like how the two flavours come together in this tea. Still on the look out for a delicious pear (found grapefruit, now i’m on to pear!). This is probably my favourite so far.
Hello old friend. It’s been a while, you see i’ve been busy. But now, i’m trying to figure out which of my friends are coming on a trip with me and i needed to remind myself what it’s like to wrap my tastebuds up in you. (deep breath) it has been too long. thank you for this moment this morning. I needed the calm before the storm.
