2971 Tasting Notes
I was digging around for something with some immune support, & realized I still had enough of this for one last cup. I’ve enjoyed this tea, with it’s healing properties & earthiness. I need some lung support right now, & it offers that, along with an interesting flavor that I enjoy.
And it’s a sipdown!
I deserve a tasty treat today, & this was it! This is a pleasantly malty & chocolatey cup.
I split up a 3oz bag of this to share with friends, along with the rest of our order, & these things will all be headed to Canada, along with some other goodies that arrived today from TastyBrew, hopefully tomorrow.
Thank you, Steven Smith, whoever you are, for this awesome cup of tea.
I can’t say that #49 is my absolute favorite, because there are just too many wonderful cups of black tea out there to have just one, but in the world of Assams, it is definitely one of my most preferred top picks, & when I woke up this morning, this was the cup of tea I wanted to start my day with. So again, I thank you. :D
Feeling better by the hour!
I’m happy to report that my taste buds are working again. This morning I tried a cup of Verdant’s Bai Mu Dan, & didn’t really report on it, as I just wasn’t getting much. Not the tea’s fault!
Anyway, I’m so happy to be tasting this tea again. It’s a very rich malty brew, but there is always a flavor that I just can’t quite identify. I’ve read everyone else’s review of it, & I’m not finding it in anyone’s comments, although I’m sure others taste it.
What is it? I can’t say. I guess I don’t have a reference point for it…yet!
But this is delicious, & I’m glad to have picked up a few oz of it on my last order. Now I think I’ll re-steep & play the piano for awhile.
“Honey, I’m Home!”
And I’m so glad to be here. I got home last night, & I am convinced that the state of Florida hates me & wants to kill me. Every part of me was hurting…kidneys, guts, head, etc. I felt that way all week, with most of my symptoms gradually getting worse each day…aughghghghg.
18 hours later, I feel remarkably better, with all of the irritation gradually melting away. My appetite has returned as well. I put myself on an emergency GAPS protocol, ingesting only homemade stock (my freezer is full of single size portions) with freshly picked greens added. My guts are starting to work again! WHEW!
And finally, a cup of tea that tastes good!
(Falls to her knees, kisses the earth, reaches to the Heavens with a tear in her eye, & cries out to the Divine Universe), “Thank You!!”
