1673 Tasting Notes
Sipdown (118 teas, and roughly 108 oz left!)!
This one is still very earthy, but not dirty and very good. I won’t restock it as I’m certain I will find better puerh’s out there, but I’m happy that I found one I could be friends with.
I guess if I’m worried about tea staining the tops of my teeth I should watch out for pu-erhs especially. Or drink from a straw, but that’s sorta ridiculous. Maybe my next job will have an awesome dental plan with teeth whitening in it? :O :O :O (yeahright)
ETA: I have over 120 followers now! That’s crazy. Thanks guys for making me feel like part of such a great community!
Whoops. I sorta steeped this for 6 minutes – sorry fancy tea – you deserve much better.
Still, this seemed to handle it ok. I think I let the water cool more than I should so it balanced out a bit. This is smooth and silky, and very light and sweet. I think that when I’m inspired by how awesome green teas are, I will be tempted to grab more of this!
Sipdown (119) – since we’re all counting back down again!
I drank it all for the sipdown, yeah, the sipdown, yeah!
Drinking this puts me at 120 teas, according to my spreadsheet, of which 48 are sample size (1-3 cups). Time to get back on track! I’ve got my new teas. I’ve got indulgent teas. I have enough.
Goodbye Grape oolong! Someday I will order you again. Some day, possibly in November. :D
I steeped this for 2 minutes instead of 1 and I’m almost singing from the hills.
It’s so rich and dark and full of honey and I can taste the malt and oh my…
Maybe next time I’ll steep it for 3 minutes now that my tolerance for strong flavours has gone up. I think I only have 1 oz of this left too. :O I better step up my point earning!
I’m bumping the rating on this as I enjoyed it more than before. I’m still super tired and seeing flashy bright spots but that’s what I get for getting 5 hours sleep: a combination of staying up too late to finish a knitting project I was excited about, and having the baby wake up an hour earlier than she should.
I’m hoping the guayasa does it’s thing. This is nice and mild, but I do feel slightly more alert than before!
