7943 Tasting Notes
So the highlight of the tea festival for me? Vanilla Matcha in….ORANGE JUICE. Yeah, i know. I would never have thought to do that but man it was like drinking and orange creamsicle and made my day. Sadly, i’m not spending 35$ on 100g of flavoured matcha. So i’m going to see what david’s version tastes like tomorrow for breakfast lol
Had a cup of this later in the afternoon so say goodbye to it. The last of this is getting shared tomorrow at the tea festival so i figured why not. In theory this brings my cupboard down to 111, while my goal for this month was 120. Guess that leaves room for the samples i’m picking up tomorrow and possible tea purchases heh. This is a really nice green. I have to say, AU does a bang up job with their teas – making me like things i wouldn’t normally necessarily love.
Final Count: 111
this is a delicious cup. It reminds me a little of some of the TTC teas, with that sweet, almost honeylike profile up front….on the tail end i get more of an almost cocoa like, malty goodness. I am a fan of this one. I brewed it western today for a couple cups…next time i’d like to try a gonfu session as i think this one would work really well that way.
finished this one up tonight since i figured i should get my numbers down before the tea festival. I think i may have actually managed to hit both my number goal for January AND my weight goal. i think. weight is always a little tricky since i guesstimate until i have time to weigh it again but at least i’m on the right track. glad i picked up this one to try. it’s a really nice blend of spicy and mango and something a little different.
Final Count: 114
