6059 Tasting Notes
sipdown! airport time in an hour or so and i’m scrambling to get a few more things organised as well as a bit of work done and tea drunk up lol I finished off this one since i’ll have maybe a half day of tea drinking in november with the travelling that’s happening so i might as well get a few sipdowns in :) This one has grown on me…i found with about 2.5 min steepings it was a perfect morning cup…a little bold, a little astringent but smooth and just what i need in the morning :)
last cup of the evening. Make note, watching the strain when it’s dark out, you’re home alone and it’s been snowing outside…not the best idea. lol not that i scare myself or anything but maybe happy shows are a better idea. Iforgot to pick up more of this with my last verdant order, so i’ll need to try and remember. I really like this one in the fall/winter. it’s a cosy go to evening tea.
Final Count: 78
with more travelling coming up shortly, i wanted to have my old favourite. I’m not sure yet if i’ll be able to bring tea with me when we’re running around or if i’ll just forego and make life easier on myself. Decisions, decisions…. I do wish that just once the harvest would taste like the very first time i had this a few years back. it’s still good, but every now and then i long for that first taste of liquid dessert.
soooo i had my sample of this today. First off..it’s a weird looking blend. secondly – it smells gross. BUT once brewed and cooled, i actually like it lol it’s like a weird fruity drink that’s quite tasty EXCEPT that the smell makes me want to..well yeah. soooo i like drinking this…but maybe when i can’t smell…. lol
mmmmm tasty puerh. I’ve been sipping on this one over the course of the morning. Trying to stick with my focus on getting through some of my puerh samples. this is a fantastic puerh. I really need to buy more of this one – it’s similar to another from teavivre that i really enjoy. There’s something about how rich and full bodied this one is, without being overly earthy or leathery. On to my wishlist for sure as a cake order i think… this is a great every day sort of puerh…
apparently when i picked this up, i’d forgotten that i’d had this a long time ago in a tea tasting note far away. Make note. DO NOT PICK THIS UP AGAIN NEXT YEAR SIL! yeah well i did..and i like it less than i did last year. this is like cardboard coconut macaroon. doesn’t help that i think of macaron’s when i think of this tea..which is a totally different beast of treats. anyway. glad that’s over. never again! haha
