4669 Tasting Notes
another one of those teas from verdant that i loved just a little better the first time i had it. I’m actually hoping on that note, that they revert back to the other version on laoshan village chai. i’m not nearly as much a fan of the winter formulation either. I had this today and it was just the right blend of spicy to keep me going in the early morning. I’ll be sad when this is gone, but may wait for the next batch before restocking!
given that i have another uh…4oz of this coming my way, i REALLY need to finish up the other 2 batches of this tea i have in the house lol. So i’m trying to drink this a little more often. I had this way early today and while it’s still enjoyable, it seems just a little different from the first batch i had and fell in love with. We’ll see how the next round goes when it gets here!
you know…tonight jack wasn’t as bleh as he was the first time. Maybe it’s because i steeped it for much less time than before, but this was a much tastier cup of tea this time around, even though, as usual it won’t be my favourite ever. I am a fan of jack. he makes me happy. tonight, this was a pretty good cup of tea, and a sipdown…sooo really? win. win.
I had this tonight when i finally got home. I’m getting a little cranky from these 12+ hr days with no lunch and too much talking, not enough time to do work sort of times. What i HAVE discovered is that it’s a good thing i wear glasses – it hides how tired i am from ppl…so only i have to see that in the mirror when i’m getting ready in the morning lol I’ve also discovered that have fun alcoholic drinks as soon as i get in the door + a nice black cup of tea…best relaxing time ever!
Sooo tonight it was this tea + a pineapple, mango, alcoholic drink with dinner. It was a great time, and once again i was reminded that i really do enjoy this puerh quite a bit, as long as i spend more than 1 cup with it. this is one of those rare instances where i generally prefer the second steeping of this. It’s just a little less intense, because these days, i’ve got all the intensity i need at work lol
see previous tasting note from today to hear that courtney is awesome… DEEELICIOUS…i held off for all of a day before diving in to what she sent me….i think it’s going to be a loong wait for my LB to come back, even with awesome ppl like YYZ and courtney who are trying to help me get through until July LOL love you guys! actually i pretty much love the crap out of everyone here on steepster for being so damn awesome. I know i keep saying it, but you guys keep me sane these days!
courtney is my favourite tea person this week…though i love you all a ton. She sent me a surprise package of LB and cacao that i mixed this morning much to my delight and had the best damn tea day ever. On the downside, i REALLY need to place and order with HI for this stuff but their customer service is annoying AND until i have the keys to the new place, i don’t want to order anything just in case things fall through. this though? + LB. best.damn.time. ever.
i REALLY wanted something fruity and tasty this morning in addition to my usual straight blacks, so i pulled this one out. It was the perfect choice! I’m seriously glad that i only have one more day to get through this week, even if my weekend won’t be particularly relaxing lol. This tea? pineapple deliciousness….i’m trying to decide if i want to hold on to the last of this until the lupicia order gets here (so i can compare this one and theirs) or just drink it all up and be damned!
