2855 Tasting Notes
OK….so I’m also trying to drink a flavored green a day…at least for the next week, in order to get through them & stay on track for my goal, which is to drink a cup of every tea that’s in my cupboard at least once a month. Crazy, I know!
This one’s ok. Mildly vegetal with a hint of strawberry & just a little tart. Really not bad.
I’m trying to drink more white tea. I’m not a huge white tea fan, I tend more towards bold & beautiful blacks, but I have a pretty good selection of whites here, & in my efforts to start sipping down some things, I’ve decided I need to drink from each of my white teas this week. So one white tea per day is what I’m going for!
This is a pleasant, though un-exciting tea. There is a bit of a ‘cream of wheat with a little vanilla soymilk on it’ taste, & a hint of lime.
What can I really say? It’s another cup of Keemun.
This one may be a little bit maltier than the other 2, & less smokey.
None of them resemble Teavivre’s Organic Superfine Keemun Fragrant Black.
This has been a nice smooth cup (as they all have been), & pleasant, but no real bells & whistles on any of them.
First cup of the day. I’ve been drinking aLOT of Assam lately. This is a nice contrast, though not nearly so bold. A little smokey, kind of a brown sugar taste.
One of the Verdant reserve TOMC teas is a Keemun, which I’ve sampled but have not yet written about. I thought maybe I’d drink my way through several Keemuns that I have, to create more of a reference point, & then sample it again.
I’m brewing a somewhat strong 16oz of this to take to my gig this morning. It will stay hot for quite some time, & I can sip & savor in between songs. I love doing that!
The spices on this chai are a little heavy in the clove department & could use more ginger, IMO, but otherwise it has been decent. There are other Chai’s I prefer, & many more out there left for me to try!
