4729 Tasting Notes
sipdown :) i was going to try for 4 today to make tomorrow only be 10 but i don’t think i have enough time before i leave for the day. We’ve got a decent day planned of board games and seeing a couple sets of friends today so long day, and little chance to bring any extra teas outside of my travel mugs. Not sad to see this one go, though it’s lovely. there are just others that i prefer drinking more :)
Final cup! Terri…grow some pumpkins and make her make like a pound of this. I’ll drive down and pick up half of it! lol Seriously though.. i love the pumpkin and ginger mingling and this one just makes me super happy in fall. like super duper happy. :) thanks for introducing this one to me terri!
Final Count: 154 ( 24 more to go by May 10…and then another 15 after that for the other half of may. except that i now have 7 teas incoming from Mandala, 2 from Verdant, 2 whispering pines…looking at a butiki order with uh 11 teas….plus there are a few more teas living with Terri and Cavo at the moment… crap crap crap lol)
Mini Goal for this weekend… get to 140
This was a free sample with the teas that i picked up from the Blue teapot while in Vancouver. it wasn’t one that i’d been thinking about picking up, but it’s not half bad. Kittyloves tea had it right when she said that this is a “mixture of sweet and sour tones and crispness.” overall a nice enough tea but nothing to get all excited and crazy over!
Another tea from jump62359 that i had earlier in the afternoon. this one wasn’t bad, though i STILL don’t like that whole black/green blend thing. it always confuses me…how do i brew it? what’s going on! AAAAAAH! Either way, this wasn’t bad but nothing i need to drink again.. It’s fun to consider the fandom blends though in terms of the story lines and how this tea might be someone’s idea of what that concept was like…. :)
this is one of my oldest teas at the moment – purchased last September. I ended up getting “extra” because of mishaps with my order but now i’m wishing that I hadn’t lol I mean i didn’t pay for it, so i could just get rid of it but that’s a waste considering i like this tea well enough :) Soooo i’m trying to drink this up at least once a week to work my way down. it’s an interesting vanilla, though i find i like it best when i mix it up with a more chocolatey blend :)
jump62359 sent this one to me in our swap and it’s a tasty one! I love getting teas from local shops in swaps, since they don’t always have an online presence. This is a really tasty black. it’s not super bold but there’s no astringency and it has a smooth profile to it. It’s different from most of my black teas, being neither malty like some or fruity/juicy like my taiwanese blacks. It also resteeped well, allowing me to have a couple of cups in this very busy day. thanks for sharing this one! I feel like i have some digging to do to find out more about this tea haha
