3091 Tasting Notes
I’m taking a break from my novel. One of my main characters is brewing sheng in her yixing right now, & although I’d also like to be sipping cups of sheng, for now I’m going with green tea. I’ve always kind of enjoyed this one. The sencha is very clean, the cherry is not cough syrupy, there’s a light floral. I’m not as in love with it as I was when it first came on the market, but I enjoy an occasional cup.
I actually started the day at Tony’s, drinking a cup of Butiki’s Irish Breakfast, because that’s what I have there. Now I’m at home. The Harp Technician, Ed, is here. He comes to town every year, making adjustments on the big harps (kind of like going to the chiropractor), so that they sound their best. I recently restrung my harp as well, so it will be in top condition, just in time for all the HoliDaze gigs.
Nothing to say about this tea, as I’ve reviewed it many times, & I’m suppose to be working on my novel right now!
Tony & I are chillin’ on the couch, watching all the shows we recorded during the week: Bones, NCIS, Big Bang, etc. Tony records them during the week, then we zip through them on the weekend (or whenever we have time).
I love this tea! I only have enough left to drink it a couple more times, & I plan to savor every cup, along with resteeps. Hopefully Verdant will be able to offer this again, & if they do, I can guarantee I’ll put up another stash of it!
Tony & I went out to breakfast at the Southwest Diner. Although their tea selection is lame, the food is quite good. I brought 3 of these blooming buds, dropped them into the little silver hot water thing they brought to the table, that holds just enough water for one cup, & didn’t even need a strainer. When she refilled it, I made sure she knew not to dump the tea out (waitresses have done that to me before). I was set for tea!
I really enjoy these. I only have 3 left. I need to place a Mandala order.
Hey Sil… ;)
While I was at traveling tea, I bought several samples. I promise if I actually buy a larger amount, I will add a page for them. I already tried 2 of them:
Peachy peach is a rooibos peach blend (duh). It’s nice enough, using real peach pieces
Pumpkin chai is the bomb!! It’s also a rooibos blend, with locally grown & dehydrated super thin pumpkin slices & chai spices. I must have more!
I stopped by the Traveling Tea company, a local tea shop.
I bought several samples, & so far I tried the Golden Halo Organic. It’s a nice little yunnan. Sorry I’m too lazy to add a listing for it, I get tired of doing that sometimes.
