5793 Tasting Notes
And i totally deserve brownie points from Kittenna for this once because…the lovely lala sent me enough of a sample for 2 cups of this delight and i’m choosing to have a “normal person cup” so that I can tuck away the other cup for kittenna to try because it was also on her list of teas to order to try! This likely needs to be brewed as a green, or closer to it than a black. i think at the higher temps it would just become bitter and you’d miss out on the delightful fruity flavours.
I would like to try this iced some time because i think it would be a fantastic iced brew. The smell of this one just makes me happy. I don’t get much coconut, rather the guava is like HEEEEYO! lookit me!
Thank you again Lala for this one!
oh yeah baby! Sipdown! come to mama 155, come to mama! lol I steeped this one a little too long today but that made the re-steep much more pleasant. This is a pretty decent plummy tea, though the spice is slightly overwhelming in the first steep. This might be the one tea i’ve had where i generally prefer the second steep.
is it? could it be? yes it is! SIPDOWN! The best part of this sipdown? Nothing says GOOD MORNING! like a cup of this malty, chocolate delicious black tea with a homemade mocha brownie first thing in the morning. Oh yea ladies and germs, i’m breaking all the rule and eating a delicious delicious brownie. with tea. and said brownie has coffee in it. and it’s sooooooo gooooooodd with this particular tea. HAPPY MORNING!
Sip down! Put your mind to something and you can do it! Managed to get myself to under 160 this weekend so now I just have to aim for 9 more before Saturday :) I think I can I think I can! Hahaha even if I don’t manage I’m still pretty proud of myself for getting it this low after how high it was when I got back from china. And! For the most part I haven’t made too many orders in march, which was also a mini goal of mine.
Anyway this was a really interesting blend to have and it was nice to try out the Amoda tea box. I may just need to pick it up again now that my cupboard is a little more manageable.
SIPDOWN! I’ve been drinking this throughout the day in between my other cups of tea. I’m sad to see it go but happy to be one tea closer to getting to 150 haha. I would pick this up again in a heartbeat. It’s not a tea i would drink every day but it’s a really nice black tea that has honey, sweet notes in it. It’s not a bold, tall, dark and steamy black but it is wonderful and a treat to drink!
