1738 Tasting Notes
Well, someone added this into the system, so I’m going to use it.
It’s a mystery oolong, and it’s great. I’m super sick right now so I’m barely drinking any tea at all, but for some reason the idea of this seemed really soothing. It’s a nice green oolong, with just a little bit of roastiness. I can barely swallow it down because I’m so pathetic, but it’s lasted me 2 hours and it’s still great cold.
So I’ve been off all week and my sleep schedule is messed up bc I’ve been staying up later and later watching Goong (Princess Hours) and playing Fantasy Life on my 3DS and basically the point is that I am drinking Second Breakfast while I wait for actual breakfast and it’s 2:45. :P
I hope I’m not working tomorrow bc it will be pretty much impossible to get to sleep around midnight. :P
This tea is really good. I was a little concerned about drinking breakfast tea on an empty stomach but it’s not THAT strong. It’s very malty, a little sweet, and a little heavy like warm bread.
This tea is totally hobbit-worthy. Thanks Sil!
Thanks to Dinosara and Sil for letting me get my hands on a bit of this puer. I’ve been drinking it all evening in my little pot. I’ve been pouring multiple steeps into an 8 oz cups so that might be negating all the benefits of gongfu steeping, but it’s fun to try things out.
This one is nice and smooth and very earthy. There’s a bit of sweetness to it,and maybe something like raisin? I’ve had 14 oz of it so far and I might just keep up with it for the rest of the night!
156 – look at all those sipdowns. :)
Thank you VariaTea for giving me a sample of this. I’d heard a lot about it, but for some reason, never picked any up. I didn’t realize it was green rooibos! It gets lots of points for that. I can taste the guava and the passionfruit, but it’s not as sweet as I expected. I suspect it would taste even better iced, so I might grab a little more in the spring!
Thanks again! :D
