8166 Tasting Notes
another one from variaTEA – there will be lots of those coming in my tasting notes as i work through her samples in between trying to get some older teas drunk up. this was one i was hoping to try and i’m glad that i did. I didn’t get an overly sweet tea out of this one – rather it was a nice black tea with a sweetness hanging out in the background. Not sure if i need to jump on the bandwagon to get this again when/if it comes back, but i’d round out my cart with this if it was around. thanks for sharing madam!
Tea sent to me by a Tea Story. Ceylons tend to get a bad wrap around here – they’re often too brisk/coppery for a lot of folks or people think of red rose sort of experiences. I’ve had a few really great ceylons but this one is super. Missing from this cup is that brassy/copper note that a lot of ceylone have. Instead this is very smooth and easy to drink. Resteeps of this were also great – not diminishing in the flavour. Looking forward to trying a few more from a Tea Story if this is my first experience with them.
thanks so much for the sample!
Thanks for sharing this one with me variaTEA this is my first chance to try tea from nepali tea traders (i think, unless my tea sister has sent some my way previously) and it was delicious! a very smooth cup, with a bit of maltiness and some sweetness. a little bready but just a great cup of tea to start the morning off. I’d pick up more of this for sure.
I need to write another tasting note about this one when i can pay attention. I sort of sipped on this throughout the day – gonfu style but never really had a chance to just sit and focus on it. I do remember being pleasantly surprised at the initial cup of this one, as it wasn’t quite what i was expecting. looking forward to trying this again with more intent and focus.
variaTEA gave me a bag of delights the other day and i’m just now getting time to log them and start in one them. I was 5 away on my sipdown goal for June, but i for sure made my weight goal…still need to weigh things, but 99% certain i made that goal. Ian and i haven’t had any down time in a while so this morning was a lazy wake up followed by breakfast together and some puppy cuddles and playtime. i picked THIS tea to see if i was still in love with it…and i am. i seriously need this to come back so i can restock. this might just be my favourite David’s tea ever…. scary. thanks so much variatea! now to decide whether to drink it all up or horde it lol
drink drink drink. love work from home days because man, i need a little relaxation in my days. Long weekend coming up so i just need to get through today. Started the morning off with a couple from bellocq since i’ve got a bunch of teas to add to my cupboard from VariaTEA :) Still enjoying this one, though there’s that underlying oolngy note heh
