2329 Tasting Notes
I served a bunch of teas today, & even managed a few sipdowns in the process, which I’ll report on later. For now, I’m back at Tony’s, working on a few teas I brought with me while he fixes dinner (He truly is the most wonderful man in the world). this tea is a tasty hazelnut & vanilla, from my *Sil*box.
SIL! I’m pretty positive that I sent this tea to YOU a year ago! :p
oh well, this is Sipdown # 57, bringing me to 359 teas.
I think this tea was my first actual experience with Puerh, although it hardly counts, as it’s blended with lots of other stuff: cocoa powder, vanilla, rooibos, cinnamon, orange peel, nutmeg. Now that I’ve been actually drinking puerh for awhile, the Shu that is in this is something I can actually pick out, but not a lot of it. Regardless, this is not a bad cup of tea.
Another tea from Sil, sipdown #56.
White teas have gradually grown on me, a little bit anyway.
This one is nice, a little malty & thick/creamy tasting. It reminds me of Yabao. It reminds me of cream of wheat. There is also a hint of lime, or perhaps tangerine to it.
I’m watching the olympics. Figure skating right now, & the little 15 year old from Russia, whose name I didn’t catch, is amazing!!
Sipdown #55 (I think).
This is another one from Sil. I have a lot of teas from Sil, way more than I’ll ever get through on this sipdown extravaganza, cuz some of them are in quantities that will take awhile to polish off. Of course, she has tons of tea from me too, HAHAHA!
I’ve decided I like Cardamom in my black tea. I wouldn’t want to have it in there all the time, but I do have Cardamom in my spice drawer, & I’m thinking that although I’d probably never buy a Cardamom black tea, I’d certainly add some to my cup. I wonder how it would be in a smokey tea, maybe with some maple syrup added…
This is another one sent to me from Sil, thanks!
Not sure what to say about this one. I like the way the cedar aroma rises up into my nostrils, I’ve always loved the aroma of cedar. The tea is a little on the bright side for me, & I’m really craving something bassy & satisfying right now.
