3083 Tasting Notes
sipdown, since i’m saving the rest for one of the girls here to punk since i do not appreciate oolongs the way that some of them do. This comes across overall to me as boring. There isn’t enough going on here for me to dislike it, but nothing about it encourages me to love it either lol overall just an average oolong.
sipdown!this is another lovely darjeeling. i’m really enjoying trying a few of these darjeelings. This is slightly fruity but still has a strength to it. thanks for sharing with me terri!
sipdown! This was a sample from Little Red Cup Tea Company. The sample they sent was more than generous, which is why i’m passing along the other half of my sample to Terri, to help spread the word about their teas. This is a delicious tea! it’s nothing like a green tea…instead it comes across as more of a white tea, but with a bit more flavour than i’m used to in whites. it’s sweet, not overly floral, though there is a bit of that. i quite like this one, and hope my tea sister does as well. Looking forward to trying the keemun from the same company too!
sipdown! (246) I wasn’t expecting much from this after seeing terri’s review. She passed on a little of this one for me to try. Fig teas always interest me, mostly because i know gracebtlb is on the look out for a great fig tea. This is not it grace! not unless you think figs = grape. because all i get from this one is grape…and that artificial grape flavour, not juicy green or purple grapes. not a bad tea, but not the tea it claims to be. :)
sipdown! I’m not a fan of this one. there’s something in the flavours that i just don’t like. it’s peachy and yet there’s something else here. ick.
Terri sent this one my way and i am so delighted with it, that rather than saving the other cups of this one, i’m going to send the rest off to omgsrsly so that she can try it, and hopefully share it with shaynebear too. i’m not sure how to describe this one..it’s a bright? tea…not astringency and it’s sort of fruity but yet not? heh thanks terri!
sample sipdown! I’m glad i had the chance to try this one. It’s coming across to me, much like a refreshing cup of spring water, though with hints of the darkness. there’s a bit of floral here, but it’s not that cloying floral that i hate. Shaynebear – this might be one for you
there’s barely any astringency to this one, likely because i kept the temperature low. overall a decent cup!
sipdown! woot woot! This has a bit of a fruity taste to it. It’s not a dark bold brew but it is pretty decent. it’s a nice one to be drinking with my apple cinnamon bread thingy lol
sipdown! thnks terri and nofars. While this is a decent enough cup of tea for me, there’s a bit of astringency here that i’m not a huge fan of. it’s not unenjoyable but it means that this is not a tea that i need to keep in my cupboard :)
sipdown! (252…going to be a long day..) This was a tea from NofarS, via my tea sister terri!I really love this one. There’s a sense of malty chocolate coming off this one that is really tasty, especially in contrast to the qimen. Really glad i had the chance to try this one!
