5583 Tasting Notes
i told omgsrsly that i would try this one today since we both ended up ordering it from CS during their sale the other week. This tea has super cute little curly buds that made me smile as i wasn’t expecting that today.
So i don’t actually get cocoa from this one…it’s more of a slightly sweet, malty tea..with a hint of “dirt?” lol maybe there’s a little cocoa there in the background if i concentrate, but this one is vastly different from other cocoa/chocolatey teas that i’ve had. I’ll have to try this one gonfu as well to see how that changes things up.
i haven’t had a chance to drink any tea tonight because i had three orders to organise. I really wanted to at least get the teas in to my cupboard and my spreadsheet so that after i package up my tea care packages this weekend, i’ll be able to organise my ACTUAL cupboard. lol i like having this one from time to time, so i’m glad i picked up the teabags over christmas. i don’t need a TON of this in my cupboard but i do like the blend of spices in this one, especially with just a teeny, tiny bit of sweetner.
Final Count: 113 and a new tea pet!
i picked this one up in my first CS order because i wanted to try at least ONE flavoured from them that was on the bolder side, since steepster friends have let me try their lighter flavoured teas. This was actually much tastier than expected. Something about the way the puerh balances and plays with the chocolate, really just works for me. I’d be inclined to try steeping this one in milk as well some time to see how it fares. Just a deliciously darker chocolate sort of treat! YUM!
This was another from last night that i finished up. There’s a package waiting for me in mail jail tonight, so i wanted to get through a few more of my samples. Plus, i still need to figure out what tea i want for free from David’s from last year. This is ok…just not my favourite. Like many of david’s teas, I’m good with just a few cups and then i don’t need any more.
Cold brew of this yesterday since i’m sending the last of this over to Anlina along with a few other treats. Cold brew this has a sweetness to it that i’m not sure i like. I think i prefer this hot brewed, and then cooled if i’m having a cold brew of this. Dropped the rating on this a little because as i’ve had more of it, I like it a little less than i used to, but it’s still a nice tea as i like having herbals in my cupboard.
