3049 Tasting Notes
This is the tea I took out into the garden with me today, & although I didn’t get nearly as much done as I had planned/hoped to accomplish, I did get a few things done. This is a lovely & gentle blend of Yabao buds, florals, vanilla, & goji berries. Mildly sweet & a little creamy, it kind of smells like cotton candy & marshmallows to me. As a dry tea, it is beautiful & looks like something fairies would drink.
After a weekend of practicing hard & running around playing gigs, I’m ready to settle in to some time at home. It’s been awhile since I had a cup of Golden Fleece! Where have I been? I’ve been drinking all these BOLD Assams, which I love, don’t get me wrong, but THIS is a wonderful cup of buttery goodness, so nurturing, so rich, like a cup of flavorful but gentle broth after you haven’t eaten for days. It’s like an invitation to relax & just breath!

Sil Sample Sipdown!!
I’m sitting here waiting for the Game of Thrones to start. I’ve been enjoying sipping teas.
I have to say, rooibos freaks me out, LOL. I don’t know what it is, but it’s really creepy looking stuff. It looks like insect legs, or something. It looks like it’s made out of the same stuff beetles are made out of, shellac or whatever.
Regardless, I’ve enjoyed this peach & rooibos tea. Thanks Sil!
Thank you Sil! This smells awesome! I could just sit around huffing this stuff, & never drink it, & be happy. It smells wonderful! Flavorwise, it’s ok plain, with an earthy mildly sweet flavor. The addition of caramel really adds to the natural caramel-like essence of Shu. With stevia, which really brings out the caramel flavors, it’s even more delicious!
It’s been a long & busy weekend. I feel like I haven’t really gotten to drink as much tea as I like, all of my teas were drank while I was driving from here to there, practicing like a crazy woman, etc. It’s also been a wonderful weekend of performances, which I’ve truly enjoyed, so it’s all good. So now I’m hanging in my PJs, sipping.
This is an interesting tea. It’s a creamy lime pudding kind of flavor, & pleasantly so. The citrus covers up the rooibos taste somewhat.
Not sure if I like the lemon or the lime chiffon better, but I think it will probably be the lemon. Thanks Sil, for letting me sample these 2 teas!
I’m cheating, sort of…
I have this list & I’m suppose to drink each tea on the list before I can start over. Those are Ms Theresa’s rules, of course, which we try to follow, but today I said, “hell no”.
I’m leaving to play a wedding, I’m really tired, I’ve had some nice tea, but nothing that’s substantial enough to kick me into high gear, & I know that THIS one is just what I need, so I’m drinking it!
So THERE, Ms TherEsa! ;)
