7475 Tasting Notes
i just got “yes deared” by my other half. Trying to show him something by tilting my monitor… his response “nice!” me: you couldn’t even see that could you… him: shakes his head no. gee thanks DARLING. bah. this was my fruit tea today and still makes me happy. i can drink it hot or cold and it’s still a tasty cup!
i needed this one today. 4 days work weeks are always a little long for me if the holiday is on monday. if it’s on the friday, no big deal lol. Best part about today? Starbucks petit vanilla bean scones are back. BOOYAH baby! for the longest time i’ve only been able to get them in the US…but they’re back. yay!
yay for interesting teas! thanks for sending me this one omgsrsly i am quite enjoying this this afternoon. we tired the dog out at the dog park and then proceeded to make orange cupcakes with marshmallow cream frosting, dry rub ribs and later there will be awesome potatoes and salad in the house too!
this tea is just different. I can’t place the aroma, though there’s a familiarity to it. there’s a slight almost mint, but not mint taste to this one..the taste kind of reminds me of what outside smells like on the west coast…those early mornings on the island when the tide’s going out, it’s rained over night, and you’re walking through the trees on the trails… inhale….breath deeply…that’s what this tastes like. so good.
this one came to me from omgsrsly and the final verdict on this one is that it’s too earthy for me. even after a number of steeps, there’s a note to this one that i don’t love. Initial steeps were very earthy and musty. I didn’t get the smokey notes that omgsrsly did, but maybe that’s the note that wasn’t jiving for me on this one? later steeps saw this one with a little sweeter note to it but it still carried that heavy, bold, earthy taste to it. Good to know though, and always happy to try new puerh :) thanks lady!
Another from Nicole Instead of following the instructions i all out brewed this western style to see how it would fare. I’ve only ever seen tie guan yin greens, so this was a new experiment for me. This kinda feels a little like an oolong but not quite. It doesn’t have that roasty oolong taste to it but it’s not exactly a strong black tea. The flavours are muted a little… interesting for sure, but nothing crazy exciting :) Loved trying it though!
