7975 tasting notes

Having a relaxing cup of tea while I get in some reading tonight. Hoping for an early night to catch up on some much needed sleep. Still enjoying this one, but i’d like to finish it off soon so i can take a break from it before the fall rolls around again haha

Final Count: 111

Final cup of this today. Figured it was a good one to get one more sipdown in before the weekend hits. I need one more after this one and then i need to weigh my cupboard and hope i’ve reached my february goal haha.

VariaTEA

Are you at like 100 teas now? You have an amazing sipdown ability. I have been trying but just can’t keep up (which is why I have to cheat and load you up with more tea :P – though, I guess I’ll be nice and wait until after February so I don’t throw off your goals.)

111…goal for feb is 110. weight goal is 6750 though…not sure if i’ve managed that. thankfully i’m finally in a place where nearly all my teas are under 100g. lol

this one came from omgsrsly Figured that i’d give it a shot today since i need to work on my puerhs and this one will need a couple rounds before i can consider it a sipdown heh.
On the whole this is a relatively decent puerh and one that was quite nice to visit over the course of the day. Earthy, smooth, no fermentation, light on the tail end of the sip. Not sweet, but more on that side than on a bitter side.

drank Keemun hong cha by Genuine Tea

I will write a better note on this one another day but initial impressions of this one are favourable. I’ll have to look in to the price comparison with some other keemuns i like but this might win out, even if it’s not my all time favourite keemun

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea
7975 tasting notes

running low on my verdant teas and probably should have stocked up when the feb sale was happening but i didn’t. On the plus side it means i’m being good with my cupboard and working on getting it down….but it also means i’ll need to restock at some point, now i just have to wait for the next sale. This one hit the spot today in that delicious sort of malty goodness way.

had a cup of this today. It’s a miserable wet, cold, sleety sort of day. I really just want winter to just BE here or for it to go away totally. this in between crap sucks

VariaTEA

You mean you don’t like our weekends that are literally 50 degrees different from weekend to weekend (i.e. -43.5 one saturday and +7 the next)?

Evol Ving Ness

This particular sleet and cold soggy feet day was the mother of all miserable February weather days. Bah!

Evol Ving Ness

I comforted myself with milky sweet chai when I got home from that.

Sil

sounds lovely!

drank Lime Green with Envy by BlendBee

noms. i think i need to try this one as a cold brew. I enjoy the lime-ness of this one and i like that it’s very different from lime gelato from david’s tea.

MissB

Different how? Spill there, girl! :)

Fjellrev

Colour me intrigued too.

Sil

lime gelato = creamier and sweeter? this one is more tangy and less sweet?

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
