1774 Tasting Notes
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
And here’s another Butiki tea, gone forever… 160
I’m not trying to sip these down on purpose, but I try a cup, really enjoy it, and gravitate back to it over the next few days. The last new blends were really well done and I have no regrets about drinking them while they are at their peak.
This was very maple-y, with a nice almond breadiness to balance it out. LOVELY.
