2855 Tasting Notes
I’m happy to report that I brought a thermometer with me, because when I pulled this one out of the bag, I realized that the recommended temp is 165! I have 2 samples of this, I think one is from Sil & this one is from Stephanie. So although this is a sip down for the tea I brought with me, it’s not a real sip down, because I have more at home.
I’m sad to report that the zyrtec I’ve been taking only really worked for the first couple of days of my visit, & each day I feel worse, so today I totally feel like crap. However, the silver lining is that last year (& every time I come to visit) I started feeling like that almost immediately after leaving the airport, & so the experiment has basically been a success, because I’m going home to my usual allergens tomorrow & I probably won’t even notice them upon re-entry.
Although you might not want to trust my taste buds, what I’m getting from this is lightly steamed green beans, with a creamy mouth-feel, and a lingering thick tongue sensation.
Another BBBB tea, this one from Sil.
It’s funny, I’m just not into taiwanese teas as much as I was. I know I’ve said it before, there is this one taste, that I can’t quite place. It reminds me of coriander a little, & a little sour….I dunno. Anyway, it is, of course, in this tea as well, & although it’s not bad, it’s also not really all that appealing to me.
I’m off to run errands with mom, & BTW, today is my Mom & Dad’s 62nd wedding Anniversary!
Another tea from Sil, which I believe came from Cavocorax originally.
This is my sweetened tea of the day, & it really is nice. I’m tempted to mix in some almond milk & a frozen banana in the blender, for an eggnog type drink, & if I’d thought of that before I drank half the cup of tea, I probably would have done it ;)
Another sip down, leaving me at 374.
The tuocha of the day came from Dag, thanks!
It’s a pleasantly sweet one, with a nice whole wheat crust’ kind of taste.
Later steeps feature some cedar as well, & I should have more to say about this, but but sorry, that’s all I got.
Oh, & this is my 3rd sip down of the day, with an remaining balance of 375 teas.
This is one of the teas from the BBBB, submitted by Tasty Brew I believe.
I didn’t write anything the first time I drank it. I just didn’t really have anything to say.
Today I tried going with more tea & less time, & I did enjoy the first steeping, approx 1 minute, but the steeps afterwards just weren’t that exciting to me, although they weren’t bad.
