2058 Tasting Notes
I am amazed I finally finished off a tin of this. I have a few other teas from Simpson and Vail I’ve hardly touched but this went fairly quickly. When I first got it I wasn’t even sure I liked it but it’s better when you steep it for a longer period of time.
I added a bit of soymilk to this and liquid stevia. My friend turned me on to that idea, she carries a small bottle of liquid stevia everywhere and that way you can just put a few drops in. A little really goes a long way!
Tea of the afternoon here – I did jivamukti yoga this morning and am going to restorative yoga tonight. Pretty impressive for someone with a fractured finger but I did have to modify some of the standing poses.
Anyway this is a really nice rose congou but I’ve had it for a while and haven’t been drinking it fast enough (story of my life). I think it has lost a bit of the rose flavor. Someday I should try this as an iced tea.
This tea has been sitting in my cupboard for a year and I just haven’t been drinking it, I decided to bring it into the office and maybe I will drink it as a cold brew. It just isn’t one of my favorites due to the hibiscus element which makes it so very tart! ugh! Today I’m having a cup of it warm and I remember why it isn’t a real favorite.. oh well! Hopefully it will wake me up anyway. Better with a little bit of stevia.
Today is just an iced tea day, and I feel like I’m drinking gallons of the stuff!
This was brewed along with a generic white tea bag and then poured over ice. I must admit I usually prefer cold brewing a tea if I have time since the ice dilutes so much of the flavor. Nothing too remarkable about this, it’s straight up spearmint I believe, but it seems very refreshing today with our Indian Summer weather!
Having an afternoon tea here, this came for free at the office, I actually don’t mind this one. I brewed it and then poured it over ice and it’s pretty good that way. The sunny weather here is perfect for iced green tea, I somehow crave green tea more when the weather is warmer and go “back to black” when the fog returns. I guess it makes sense! This is lightly tropical and reminds me a bit of mango/papaya but still seems a bit more artificial than I would like.
Good morning Steepster. I am doing okay aside from having a fractured finger which is really annoying and somewhat painful!
Anyway this is a good tea for consolation purposes. ;-) Today it’s a sipdown. I will certainly get more someday, it’s a great Golden Monkey. Today I am really getting such nice malty notes.
