5769 Tasting Notes
sadly, i’m dropping the rating on this one a little because the harvest that i have in my cupboard at the moment is NOWHERE near the delicious tea that this one used to be. These days it seems to be falling a little flat, which makes me sad, though i am happy that yu lu has increased in the yum department, so i still have two great teas from verdant ni the black department that i love. Also goes to show that sometimes it’s worth trying different harvests :)
Another one from yesterday and man, it’s incredible how different this tea is from the first time i tried it and didn’t like it. NOW, i really enjoy it and i’m finding less enthusiasm for my zhu rong…which is sad because i’d really just love all three of the black teas i have from verdant lol
Upping the rating a little for this batch. delicious!
backlogging from yesterday. Love this one with a little cacao added to it when i want a more indulgent treat. :) I am nearly to the end of my supply…then, thankfully it’s on to the excess that terri gave me…which i’m lucky she did because even though i preordered, it’s delayed and so who knows when my precious will be back….contemplating another order already just in case haha
mmmmm pulled this one out of the cupboard tonight because after a month with no real tea drinking time, i want things that i enjoy in the evening. I still really enjoy this one, though it appears that the sweet spot this time around is at about 8 mins. I know with earlier batches it was 12 ish so maybe it’s because it’s fresh. Still loving this one as an evening substitute for vanilla citrus spice. Today was a good “work from home but not too much,” day since i’ve got to go to work tomorrow and friday.
