3091 Tasting Notes
Still my favorite blend from Teavana, & I enjoyed a cup tonight, unsweetened. I really am trying to start winding down a little earlier each night, although in all honesty, I haven’t been all the successful so far.
The aroma of this tea is the best part, it smells so yummy & fruity. I also do enjoy the taste, sweet & a little tart, really almost more like apricot than peach on that regard. There are little pieces of dried fruit that I like to eat, especially the little pieces of pineapple!
Here’s one from the BBBB, compliments of Sil. Thanks Sister!
I drank this straight, but I think next time I’ll sweeten it a bit, & maybe even add a little french vanilla creamer, ala strawberries & cream!
Little Terri is in my head, yelling, “I want more tea!!!”, like a little brat. The truth is, I do want more tea, but I need to make my next cup something without caffeine, so I can go to bed early, or at least at a reasonable hour tonight.
This is one of the teas that I got in my recent Teavivre order, & I’m glad I did! I love their superfine org keemun, & I wanted to get some of this one, as well as samples of the Keemun Grades 1 & 2, so that I can eventually compare them all.
This one is robust, & I’d even go as far as to say it’s manly, in that the flavor is bold, thick, & husky! I like it! There’s a musky kind of grapiness to it, & a deep forest floor earthiness. I think I might love it. There is also some smoke, but not SO much, just some. It’s a beautifully balanced cup that is much more assertive than the superfine organic keemun, but also not as sweet. I’d say that this one is the yang to the other one’s yin, if you know what I mean.
He’s a rugged, nicely bearded, good looking, outdoors kind of guy, who likes to fire up his smoker.
Yay!!! The BBBB arrived! TastyBrew & Sil, you ladies are awesome!
So, this is my first pick from the box, & I’m not gonna give it away until Sil gets the box, but TB’s packaging is fun & novel :)
I’m enjoying this cup, it’s very smooth & satisfying. It’s also a very evenly balanced cup, no real highs or lows, but a very tasty tea.
I’ve been enjoying this final tasty malty cup. Now I need to load up to go play a gig, a christmas concert at the library.
BTW, I know this is shameless self promotion, but if you are a fan of Holidaze music & lullabies, with elements of new age, classical, & jazz, stop by my website & check out my Christmas CD, MidWinter’s Canon. CDs also make great gifts!
My Black friday order from the Tea Spot came, & I am having a cup of this. What a great blend, & I’ll have to agree with Sil, this with ginger added? Oh yeah, baby, that would just be the icing on the cake!
My student that likes smokey teas will get a cup of this later in afternoon when he comes for his lesson. Meanwhile, I’m taking this cup to the bubble bath. Here I go!
Big Golden Hairy Buds!
What does it sound like I’m describing to you? Some kind of homegrown?
I think this is one of the teas I’m going to be sending to my BBB sisters this month. Maybe. It brews up a nice mellow Dian Hong, with that thick kind of mouth. I haven’t tried a gongfu session with it yet, but I plan to. Not as fancy as The Golden Fleece or Mojiang Golden Bud, but very nice just the same & the buds are huge!
