2168 Tasting Notes
Trying to drink some of this tonight… anti strain still seems like a weird name for a tea in my opinion. Anyway it was a stressful day and after doing some kundalini yoga and meditation I’m just winding down with this. It needs something to temper the licorice but I’m not sure what. Perhaps I’ll try a green or a white tea with it someday.
Tea of the morning here. I like my morning teas to be kind of strong and hefty! You definitely need some soymilk (or regular milk) with this to temper it a bit. I added some rock sugar too although it doesn’t really need it.
I’d rather be at home making art than working today — what else is new?!
It’s been a long day, first a whole day of being at work and then drawing class in the evening. I got home kind of late and wanted something relaxing so I thought I’d have a big mug of this. I’m not always in the mood for something so minty but when I am, this tea fits the bill!
Maybe I’ll finish my box off before next Christmas?
Tea of the morning here, I’ve been on somewhat of an assam kick lately I guess…
I was fortunate to find this is the bulk bin at the Local Whole Foods. I don’t know that I will get any more once it runs out because I have a few other assams to drink now! Still, this is very nice, mellow, almost creamy in flavor. Perfect with a touch of soymilk!
Decided to get this Arya Estate Ruby to try, I assume this is from 2012 since I don’t think the 2013 sf darjeelings are here yet. I don’t tend to like sf’s as much as ff’s but that doesn’t mean I will ever stop trying. :-P
This brews up to be a lovely medium orange color. This is exceptionally fruity for a sf and even has a bit of sweetness to it. I’m also picking up a bit of rose in the finish, very nice. This is one of the better sf darjeelings I’ve had in a while – it was also good with a touch of rock sugar to help bring the sweetness forward a bit.
