8160 Tasting Notes
Decided that i need to try and have a few puerh/gonfy type sessions today because the weather is shit outside and i’m working from home. I also haven’t had a chance to do much of anything besides western brew so i’d like to change that. I have a ton of puerh that i want to revisit, some samples and a cupboard to get in order! :) I pulled this one out as i also want to try and get at least one sample down today. I’ve had this one before, courtesy of dexter (as is this sample) and i rather enjoy it.
oh god. i just lost my train of everything. we’re doing this mini “introduce the team” thing at work and i think i just convinced my boss to make it powerpuff super hero themed for fun…. which doesn’t happen in a bank normally for this sort of thing and i think he’s onboard since he just sent my his own avatar that he created, complete with his cat. oh god i am dying here…
I opened this one today – my present for getting my cupboard weight down more than anticipated in March. Let me tell you the dry leaf on this one is amaaazeballs. I made my other half smell this one and he immediately said chocolate., instead of saying “dirt” like he always does. I wish the brewed version of the tea was as chocolatey as the dry leaf – instead it turns into a VERY pleasant more typical yunnan golden bud. That’s not to say it was delicious and thoroughly enjoyable, just lacking the intensity of the chocolate aroma of the dry leaf. :)
a friend gave this one to me so i figured i should try it out, even though looking at the ctc, i was pretty sure it wouldn’t be my cup of tea either. this is a REALLY strong tea and just not one to stay in my cupboard. This would be a milk/sugar sort of cup for me. Instead, i’ll add it to my swap box to share with others. :)
farewell tea. This helps me reach last months sipdown goal lol now i can focus on this months. What’s nice is that in order to get to 55 for the end of the year, from here on out i just need to get 5 sipdowns each month. That should be totally doable even with the teas i have larger quanties of since i have lots more time to work on them :)
