6831 Tasting Notes
sipdown! sorry to see this one go, especially since i have no keemuns in my cupboard at the moment but also nice to feel like i’m making a bit of progress with my cupboard. Dropping the rating a little on this one since it’s not as delicious as the first time i had it. There are other smokey teas that i prefer…but this one is still good!
Final Count: 121
another one that i haven’t had in a long time. I think this time it worked out better because i had less tea and more of the “extra bits” in it. I am NOT a fan of last years harvest of the base tea for this one. It wasn’t a great year for it.. i’m hoping that this year is better because prior to this year, this was a high 80 for me.
today is a holiday in canada for a lot of folks…which means for us, cleaning the house, trying to get outside and using it as a day for the two of us to catch up on things we haven’t had time to work on. It also means being able to drink a few more teas. Today i needed something delicious to kick off my day so i opted for this one. I really need to see if anyone’s written about 2015 harvest since i’ll be running out of this one soon and need to decide on 2014 or the 2015. I think the rest of the day is going to be a little bit of more new teas and finishing up a couple for some sipdowns :)
Figured i should try this one today so i can keep working on getting through all the teas in my cupboard at least once. I think i’m down to only about 34 teas that haven’t been tasted yet, so overall, i’m doing better than i was. Dry, this smells amazing. creamsicle, but more lemon creamy than orange creamsicle…i say that only because imo there is only one creamsicle and that’s orange lol. brewed up, the smell is a little more subdued but still has that creamy smell to it. The brewed cup? It’s not exactly my favourite, but i think there’s room to play with this. IE. with a little sweetness added, i think it would smooth out the edges of this that are a little jarring for me. I don’t really get “brioche” from this, which is how it’s described by MF., but it’s lovely nonetheless.
