5357 Tasting Notes
pulled this one out today because i really wanted a treat. That being said, drinking this is depressing since i’ve pretty much talked myself out of another butiki order because everything i wanted to try was sold out before i went on vacation. Work made it really hard to get the order in, and by the time i had 5 mins to do it, everything was pretty much gone. Soooo i only have 1oz of this left, and i’m trying to make it last as long as possible, along with a few of my other favourite flavoureds from Stacy, since i didn’t really get the chance to restock my straight favourites. bah. this one? still loving the crap out of it. so delicious.
thank you for sending this one my way dinosara it was ages ago but i’m finally sorting through my smaller puerh samples, trying to clean up my cupboard AND take the time to focus on what i’m drinking at least once a week. I’ve been drinking this one all morning – though i suppose it’s now afternoon.
What i’ve started to figure out is that i get a smoke like taste often when i drink sheng…it’s not like lapsang smoke…but it comes through as “smoke” to my taste buds. This particular tea was earthy and vegetal like asparagus and then turned creamy. Overall a nice relaxing time today while cleaning up around the house.
my darling swedish chef sent this one my way to try and i’m super glad she did. I have to say, i’m not one of those people who tends to drink cacao on it’s own. I much prefer it as an addition to teas to give them that roasty chocolatey taste. I’m drinking these samples on their own though as i want to get a better sense of how they’ll work with other teas. This one is hints of mint with a lot of cacao. I enjoy it, but i’m not sure i see the point of the mint lol. I’d likely just add cacao to a mint tea so that the mint was more present and i could control the mint level. Enjoyable, though..and a nice cup to end the evening. Time for bed with my headache not getting much better.
