1617 Tasting Notes
I grabbed a cup of this from the MTTB because I’d never had it and was curious about the guayusa. Guayusa… I wonder if I’m saying it right? :P
This basically tastes very apple cidery and it’s delicious! Buttery golden apples and sweetness. It’s a great cup for a rainy miserable day like today. (Why did I wear sandals? I should have looked harder for socks for shoes…)
So dopey today. Ugh. I almost feel like I get more done on week days than weeekends because one day is blitz chores/shopping and the other day is our roleplaying game which takes the entire day.
I was sad earlier because I thought I was out of wake me up mate teas, and then I remember I had all the Night Vale teas!
How do you know when you have too much tea? I’ve figured it out – when you can’t remember how each one tastes! So that means I have too much and need to drink more. All these NV ones blend together.
This was a sample I rec’d from my first Whispering Pines order, and the only pure tea in the batch! I got sucked in by all the interesting blends, and can’t wait to try them out! Thank you for letting me try this!
But this is such a beautiful Yunnan tea. I had to drink it first. I love the golden and black leaves – it’s so pretty. And this tea is really wonderful. I was surprised that it only has a few reviews, but the when I looked it up on the site I saw it was $11.75/oz. I guess that might explain it. It does taste quite fancy though.
I get cocoa and honey, and a little malt. It’s rich and complex and not at all bitter, even though I steeped it for 5 minutes by mistake! Like a lot of the Yunnan teas I’ve had, this one is quite smooth too. I get a little bit of fruitiness at the end of each sip, but I can’t quite place my finger on it!
I wanted to try another of my Whispering Pines teas but I am going to re-steep this first!
(175) The other half is going to Sil so she can try it too!
I wish I could remember how this compares to other Dian Hong teas, but I do know this one is great.
Drinking this again because Hannibal is on tonight. I’m also listening to an 8tracks playlist of all the music from Hannibal: http://8tracks.com/rickonstarks/music-of-hannibal It’s quite fancy.
I hope we find out if the show is renewed or not soon!
