1672 Tasting Notes
I drank this earlier so I’m going purely on memory here.
Anyway, I’m confused by this. Is it a white tea? Is it pu-erh? How do you draw the line? It was tasty but it remined me of Bai Mu Dan, and even looks like it. So, I’ll assume that it doesn’t have the ‘magical’ pu-erh properties (weight loss, digestive help etc). Tasty though!
No idea what Lucuma is, but I guess it’s a fruit from the picture! :P #detectiveskills
I actually really like this. Maybe it’s because it has the stronger flavouring, or maybe because I finally got the right consistency, but whatever – I like it! It tastes like matcha, and it’s a bit sweet, and it blends well with my milk. All good things. I guess there’s something else in there – possibly fruity, but I’m just happy enough with this that I don’t need to investigate further. I just drank 6 oz and I sorta want to go make 6 oz more!
Thank you CrowKettle!
I’m getting closer to finishing this one up, although I still don’t know what I think.
I steeped it for 5 minutes again, but it just feels milder than I remember. It’s a bit grassy, and it has that wonderful honeyed after-note floating around. I keep thinking that I’m not too crazy about this one, and then I try it. I guess I’d probably get a little more of this in the future once I’m out.
Another unflavoured tea from Davids! I grabbed this just to see what white tea tasted like on its own, and I enjoy it although it seems weaker than ususal. I’m sure once I drink my sample of white tea from Verdant I won’t be able to go back to this one as easily, but this is nice for what it is.
I guess I could have just made stronger tea as the baby is up and there are no signs of slowing, but I’d probably need to eat something too and I don’t want to wake up my bf or my roommate.
Uck! The baby just put her mouth around my big toe! :O No no no no no. (That’s what I told her).
This is a pretty good morning tea for when you’re up before 7 and you’re hoping the baby will tire out and go back to bed so you can crash for a few more hours too. If I had just given up I would have tried A&D’s Tiger Assam, but I wanted mild. Mild and flavourful. I think I’ve only got a few more cups of this one left so I’ll probably work on emptying my tin. I bought it over a year ago, so I’ve had a lot of cups in between!
I’m sure I’ll replace it once it’s gone, but maybe just 30g. It’s smooth, and gives me honey, and a bit of muscatel and I’ll miss it for sure, but is it tin-worthy? Now that I know how much I like Assam and Yunnan teas? Probably not. You learn a lot about what you like when you drink so much in a year!
