6852 Tasting Notes
Warning, this is a strong tea – brewed hot it’s very strong and sugar is a requirement to take the edge off how strong it is. with just a little sugar, the brew smooths out and becomes a really nice juicy brew. I think brewed cold, you’d have the same problem – you’d need to add sugar. But otherwise i think this one is pretty decent.
Still not sure where i sit with this tea. I don’t dislike it, but i don’t love it. Maybe i need to try brewing it gonfu or something. There’s a sweetness to this that i don’t typically associate with my favourite keemuns, which is maybe why this is throwing me off. I’ll also have to share this one with a few folks and see what they think. :)
HOLY LONGEST DAY EVER FRIDAY THANK GOD IT’S THE WEEKEND.
yeah that’s right. I had this one at some point during the day. I’m starting to feel like in a work environment, mtgs can only be 45 mins long…so there’s always 15 mins to get to your next meeting or go pee, grab a snack..whatever. I was home today thankfully, so i was able to make tea while on a call – something i wouldn’t be able to do at work. this one is almost done and i’m still sort of undecided on it. I like it..but is it snickerdoodle or just cinnamon….interesting to say the least and enjoyable… just not quite what i want
Finishing off the last of this one before i split the last little bit across a few tea friends. I’ve enjoyed drinking this one, but not sure if i’d restock. it’s got a juicier profile versus the malty blacks that i like but it’s smooth . it’s on the lighter side so maybe a better afternoon tea. still, i’ve enjoyed it a bunch.
