5937 Tasting Notes
first day back after overnights on the weekend = lots of tea AND some coffee… this was the first tea of the day to really kick things off. Thank god tomorrow is a bank holiday so the only thing that i HAVE to do is go look at wedding venues and then possible swing by my favourite vintage store and see what’s what. :)
last tea of the evening now that i can safely go to sleep without fear of waking up in the middle of the night. Sad part is, i have another overnight next weekend. blech. I managed to make my sipdown goal this weekend, but not my stretch goal. that’s ok though since there’s still a week or so left for me to drink teas in November, though again, i’m losing time thanks to work travel. I love this one when i get to steep it for like 10 mins…then it’s a delicious creamy cup of fantastic. haha yeah, i’ve been using that a lot lately but to be honest, tea is keeping me sane these days :) so there!
Final Count: 67
noms… still going…. i will be so glad when this day is over and i can crawl in to bed. My body is screaming for sleep at the moment …. but i still need to finish laundry, finish issues with work and eat. then..sleep…yyaaaaay sleep. Since i need help with keeping my eyes open, i pulled this one out from terri still a fan! :) It’s nice to have delicious teas in the cupboard even if they aren’t sipdowns haha
NOMS! terriharplady let me steal one of these from her when i was in st louis and i figured that this would be the perfect morning tea since we’re still running through test cases and such. This way i can make a cup, boil the water, steep another cup and keep rotating. so i’ve been doing that this morning and it’s been great. this is absolutely tangerine and not orange. the flavouring isn’t overpowering the tea, though i’ve been experimenting by putting some of the rind in here and there to play with the level of flavour coming through. This is also a bold enough puerh for me, without being flat in terms of a base. On the whole, i’d likely pick some of these up in future for fun :) thanks terri!
