8069 Tasting Notes
i think that’s 3 for 3 on this tea. Not good. Christina saved this for me to try. it’s like…it’s flat. or something. the very very very start of the sip is chocolatey and gets your hope up, and then everything else that this tea brings is like a giant slap in the face, it’s so bad. like ick. the contradiction of that potential followed by awful disappointment is just no.
noms. GCTTB this is delicious! I don’t love green teas all the time, but there are a few out there who make me want to keep a couple in my cupboard. This is one of those. It’s fruity and sweet, with an almost nutty flavour profile in the background? almost? it’s not super vegetal but being a green tea, there’s some of that. mostly though, it’s sweet and delicious.
Delicious cup of this today. I am enjoying having some of my older teas today since i don’t really have the focus today for puerh. At least this way i’m exploring some of my older teas while also getting through some of my samples. I am starting to get through some of my straight teas as well, so i pulled a new one to try next week from me "recently purchased but not yet open box. Still have a ways to go to get to my Feb goal though. Today this cup is just smooth and old. i can’t really do it justice today but i’m super glad i was able to have a cup during some downtime at work so i could just sit with it.
oooh. so this one? kinda like a spicy oolong. No chocolate or real sweetness here, just a deecnt tea base that’s spicey…and i can pick out the oolong notes. I can live without tiny marshmallows but where is my chocolate? I’ll have to add some cacao nibs or shells to this and see if that works better for me.
special tea this morning. My other half splurged on this tea when we went to paris for me. I ADORE the white tea (yes white tea…) in this line and so he wanted to pick that one up along with the black tea for me to try. I don’t pull this one out of the cupboard often – i probably should more often, but when i do, it’s delicious. malty, spicy, fruity…just delicious.
