519 Tasting Notes
I drank this before subbing yesterday, when I realized I was battling yet another stomach issue. I don’t like ginger, but I know it soothes upset tummies, and this has lemongrass and other herbals in it to help cut that. I am not the biggest fan, but it is drinkable for me. Whether or not it worked is anyone’s guess.
I got this as a bonus sample in a Birchbox order. Makeup and tea? Pretty much my favorite things ever. I like this brand as a teabag option, they might even be my favorite. This is strong, a bit sweet, and is very forgiving to a bit of oversteeping. It is mostly orange with just a hint of dessert-y vanilla. I would definitely repurchase this.
This is delicious and refreshing. I made it with the intention of icing it, and it was floral and fruity and green and basically tastes like springtime. Excellent to get me through the long days of subbing and help me decompress when children decide to flip their desks over like little maniacs over things like not being line leader.
I enjoyed drinking this. The first steep was really smooth and creamy and sweet, with florals in the background. I’m not cool enough to be able to pick out more specific flavors. The later couple steeps are much more floral and fruity and tasty. I love oolong, and this one would be good for every day.
I’m wondering if Keemun isn’t another kind of black I just don’t really adore plain. This tasted malty. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great.
It might have been my mood though. I will need to try it again. I woke up to a text from a guy I was seeing wanting to break things off just as I was starting to like him. It’s ok, he is a mess, as it turns out. Dating just sucks, and I think I’m going to be taking a rest from it for awhile!
