9 Tasting Notes
Yerba mate is a little the same color when I steeped it. I get a lot of peach and Valencia orange as fresh as hand zested citrus. And the first was so elegant and sweet after all if fifty seconds on the pot of clay. Some of the brews are less and less but the nice smell and small batch just reminds me how well yes it is that, and the importance of that is that. I might not be saying anything to someone without a 3-4 oz xing-yi from shou-Shang. I’m probably sleep depriving from skipping water in favor of thus hydrationable you know ..
So mauve too much of a good thing is hazardous too your health, I won’t be finishing this bag anytime soon. Bit. Of a quandary, quite a quite a quagmire . What points I set out to address have since been absconded by dat creativity., by teh reinvention of a classic. Again . Too with being honest I’m more a fan of the store where I get the peach blossom tea: Delhi urban bodega. I could spend all day scouting out new hangs to make and people watching, then ride the subway for an hour to get here and it’s still totally bank. These little treats I give myself get a little pricey, but that’s why I graduated from the school of pharmacy and dealt with the constant torture by pharmacy tech books For them I take a day off, play a game of thumb war, oh dadgum Sam-€ you won, I’ll just keep on tea bagging and stirring.
Woke up with my spouse, and started studying, We’ll haveways some of teh late-winter budset yebao, she tells me she doesn’t care, but I make it for several steeps just to fill her cup highest with the lightly camphor and pines woody pitch taste that I have been saving since 2012 when David sent this one to me, I ALSo say what’s up verdant!! If y’all reading this, and you’re still in business you must have done something right, cheers
I am so endebted to eurasia-cafe for selling me this nicely bundled tea. It was not a dark brew at first, and I could tell from the inital clarity of the liqour in colour that it was free of the additives and carmel colors associated with poorer quality leafs, et al. Descriptors abound when drinking chinese black tea, but let’s steep to the high path and talk about the velvety mouthfeel and moist Earth and eucalytptus flavors in every cup. It decreases amplitude and then the bitterness increases at a pace relative to the amount of water per brew you use. In the end it comes out of the pot looking like dried chinese prunes, and you better believe they’re still pretty bitter and could go in there again.
Flavors: Earth, Seaweed
So autumn rose is nice, fruity moist smelling, and after the steepage in a Gravity Pot, the taste is not bitter, maybe a bit of sweetness from the flower petals. It’s not entirely vegetal and has almost no actual tea taste unless it’s residualar from my dern tea-steeping thing.
On a lighter note, I put it in a togo cup and sat at my favorite UCI campus hangout and heard a joke from some underclassers, it goes, So you’re at the hospital waiting room, and against the wall there’s two doors: the door to pleasure, and the door leading to like unbelieveable torture. In front of each door is a guard and all you know is one has to tell the truth and the other is always lying, but you don’t know who’s who, and you only have one question you ask either one. So, what do you ask them if you only have one question.?
The punchline is implicit, heh they’re both telling the truth because what you believe going into the door, is what it’ll feel like, so if you think it’ll be bad and good it’ll still be bad, and vis versa. Kind of like this tea, that I went into it thinking it would be good, and it was good.
Flavors: Gardenias, Melon
