2055 Tasting Notes
Tea of the mid-morning — I found this sample teabag when I was going through my stash last night trying to figure out what teas to bequeath to this cute guy I know. :) I decided I wanted to revisit this again since it’s been a while since I’ve tried it.
I think the base here is perhaps a ceylon and the strawberry flavor is popping out at me a little more than I remember. I am drinking this without any additions and it’s nice that way. I think this is perhaps a ceylon base with a little bit of “gummy” strawberry flavor. I bumped the rating up a little bit.
It’s free at the office so that’s why I’ve been drinking it…
This tea is certainly nothing to write home about, it’s a standard Chinese green tea and nothing I would bother to keep for my personal stash.
I know this is a terrible thing to admit on Steepster, but my tea obsession seems to be winding down a bit. For one thing I’ve discovered I can drink coffee again in the mornings on some days because my heartburn issues have resolved themselves quite a lot due to decreased stress levels in my life over a few years ago. Why this is, I don’t know. Perhaps it’s because some annoying people who were stressing me out have been jettisoned from my life – lol :)
Also I still have way too much tea but that goes without saying. :)
The weather is beautiful today but I think my allergies are going haywire, after 2 cups of tea and a coffee this morning I am still tired. Just popped a Sudafed and thought I’d drink some of this delicious green tea.
I have been very impressed by the quality of Mellow Monk and highly recommend their products!
Alright, I admit I haven’t been on Steepster too much lately, partially it’s just because I have way too much tea as it is and I’m looking to drink more of what I own. I might need to do a swap soon!
This still seems really good to me although perhaps not as wonderful as it was when it was super fresh. It’s a good evening tea with the music I’m listening to now, “Tommorow Never Knows”
Turn off your mind relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dying
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.
Tea of the afternoon along with some soymilk. Makes a nice companion to this Decemberists song I am listening to:
“This is the story of the boys who loved you
Who love you now and loved you then
And some were sweet, some were cold and snuffed you
And some just laid around in bed.
Some had crumbled you straight to your knees
Did it cruel, did it tenderly
Some had crawled their way into your heart
To rend your ventricles apart
This is the story of the boys who loved you
This is the story of your red right ankle".
Tea of the morning here. I did not gong fu this beautiful tea because I was in a hurry, it is quite delicious steeped in a mug for 4 minutes Western style. I was impressed by the red tea sampler from Jing and would not hesitate to buy more from this company, their oolongs are also really good.
