1393 Tasting Notes
Thank you Sil!
I mean, I think. My cupboard started at 186 and now it’s up at/around 258.
Some of that, maybe 15 of it, was tea that I ordered and split with Sil, but the rest was her just being crazy and super generous and I am blown away. So, thank you. :D
Now I chose this one because it was only one cup. It’s a nice black tea, with that tannic something or whatever that I notice in Kenyan teas. It’s enjoyable though. I think there’s a little bit of golden honey in each sip, and I’m enjoying that. It’s comparable to JusTea’s Kenyan black, but not quite so strong.
This gets bitter quickly as it cools.
This tea is ok. It’s not great. It’s strong and other than that I can’t pick much else up.
It’s better with sugar. It sorta needs sugar. Yikes.
It’s a Monday sorta tea.
You know what I did today? Dropped my phone and the bus and used my foot to catch it so it wouldn’t slide everywhere. So, I grinded it into the floor and scratched the crap out of it. It kept turning itself off and wouldn’t boot so I ended up buying a Windows phone for $100 at the BestBuy by my office. That’s my day.
I was interested in trying out the Windows platform just because I love my surface, but I wasn’t planning to get a new phone 1 year after I bought my Blackberry. :| To be fair though, it was failing before I crushed it. The power button and head phone jacks and volume button all stopped working last week.
New phone! Bad tea! :D OHAI monday!
Thank you ifjuly (and Dexter3657) for letting me have a sample of this. This is a darker oolong, but I like that. It’s so green and rich, and the coconut tastes really natural and delicous.
I couldn’t tell you how this compares to the one from OMGsrsly but it’s up there. Very good.
(sipdown 192 – I’m currently on a mission to sipdown all those random little swap bags that are taking up room. Foil bags are a ok. Zips gotta go!)
This blend is odd. So odd.
But the 11th Doctor was quite odd too so I think this is a good fit.
It’s supposed to be black teas, white tea, blueberry and cinnamon but my mouth keeps telling me I’m drinking blueberry gingerbread. Blueberry gingerbread is not a combination I would have immediately thought was amazing, but it does work.
It’s a little bready, the blueberry is light and sweet (and brilliant) and finishes each sip. The cinnamon and nutmeg hold everything together. It’s very comforting.
