2895 Tasting Notes
Welcome to day 7 of little terri’s Ultimate Sipdown Extravaganza!
I started the day with this Taiwanese black, part of the order that Sil & I shared a year ago. Of course, this was my first tea of the day, but that was hours ago, so I don’t really have much to say. I have enjoyed these teas from TTC, but they don’t have as much appeal to me as some of the other black teas that I love. Sipdown!
From January of 2013’s Reserve TOMC, this is somewhere between a Sheng & a white tea, as far as it’s flavor & qualities. It starts out lightly tart & citrus like, gradually gets a creaminess to it, with a growing evergreen essence. It features a decent tea-buzz, both savory & sweet, bringing to mind Pine & Eucalyptus.
Sipdown – 365
From last year’s Verdant Reserve TOMC, the May edition, I started steeping this & realized that I’m just not really in the mood for a white tea.
Regardless, I’m sipping one steeping after another of this oh so pale golden liquor, with a light flavor of cream & sourdough bread. I really need an energy boost, & I need it now, so I’ll probably whip up something Assam like for me next selection. Meanwhile, sipdown.
