8055 Tasting Notes
mmmm pulled this one out today since i’d like a few more straight teas to be opened in my cupboard. Lots of flavoured but not as many straight teas. Also, i had forgotten i had this keemun and might as well compare it someday soon against the one i just picked up from genuine tea (just not today). This is a fabulous tea. Not sure it warrants the price, but man, so delicious this morning. Malty, cocoa, caramel, sweet but in a creamy sort of way…. noms. just yums.
I pulled this one out to start my day. Running around today so not much time for drinking tea, but i WILL get my sipdown tomorrow to meet my Feb goals. I really like this one – it’s an oolong but it’s closer to a black than an oolong imo. It’s lacking that distinctive OOLONG taste that i tend not to enjoy. instead it’s sweet with fruity notes, but not as intense as some TTC teas. just a really enjoyable tea – even if it is hard to let it brew for as long as the instructions call for (4-6mins)
Time to pull out my older teas more often since i’ve sort of been hoarding them. Not to mention i have the free shipping coupon from damn fine tea that i can use before June? i think it was, so i might as well drink up! I forgot how much i rather enjoy this one. It’s got a softer, almost sweet profile when brewed at lower temps. really nice to revisit this one.
