4862 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
