3087 Tasting Notes
Not too much to say about this one, trying to catch up on my logs from today. I’ve been drinking this one a little more often because it’s one of my older teas but also because it’s a nice cup to start the day with.
mmm yes please and thank you! Last cup of the evening because i got distracted trying to plan vacations. This not only smells delicious but it tastes so very good as well. It’s orange and creamy but it’s also chocolate. I’m not a rooibos hater either so this is darn tasty. Thanks to Cavocorax for this one. I’m a fan!
I’m hoping that i just over steeped this one. It’s got a weird bitter type taste to it that i am NOT a fan of. It smells heavenly! There are some serious grassy notes underlying the flavour as well, rather than blending nicely. I’ll give this one another shot later and pay more close attention to what i’m doing. Thanks to omgsrsly for sending this my way!
Sip down! Finished this off tonight with a cold brew. So delicious! Little sad to see this one go, but also ok with it since winter is coming and my cold brew consumption will start going down. :)
Sip down! Another wonderful sample from Terri! Gradually working through them. I’ve been drinking this one over the course of the later afternoon. Sadly it’s stupid hot in Toronto so my brain has been wandering. I think there are other puerhs that I prefer more than this one, but I don’t dislike this one either. This is one of those puerhs for me that I could drink all the time. It doesn’t feel like I have to pay as much attention to it as others but is still a creamy ish cup of puerh. I can dig it :)
Thank you omgsrsly picked this one up via cavocorax today. I decided to try this straight to begin with and then I will be sure to try it with cream or iced as you suggest. This is a pretty tasty treat. I am picking up more almond than maple in the first sips of this, but as it cools, the maple is coming more to the forefront. Nt a bad start to my teas from steam :)
SIPDOWN! and thank goodness because i’m going to be back over 200 again in a few hours thanks to a visit from cavocorax This one is a little bitter but it’s not too shabby. it’s a lot more pomegrante than blackberry. I added a bit of honey to this isntead of sugar and it’s blended nicely with the taste of the tea. not too bad!
SIPDOWN! Thank you terri for sending me a sample of this one. This is another from yesterday that i didn’t get a chance to log. I’m trying to get to a few of the samples terri sent me so that i can start to figure out what i like in terms of puerh AND to get my cupboard size down a little heh.
This is a really nice puerh. Not my favorite of those that iv’e tried but since i have so far enjoyed every puerh that i’ve tried, i’m thinking it’s just the tea for me lol
I did a few steepings of this, which are of course a little foggy for me now. I recall there being woody characteristics, raisin and an earthiness to it without being too much.
Sipdown! place holder log at the moment as i don’t have time to do a final review of this one yet. I’ve added the rest to a package for the canadian travelling tea box since there’s been interest in trying a few matchas.
back log from yesterday. I had a cold brew of this and man it’s pretty darn tasty. so much do that i dumped the rest of it in to a cold brew to cool overnight for today, since it’s supposed to be another hot day! this is vastly superior as a cold brew.
