1708 Tasting Notes
I like this tea. I really do. I had 3 cups of it today at work and it was just what I wanted. I tried to drink another tea in-between steeps but it intolerable (especially next to this beauty) and was dumped quite quickly. This one is just dark and rich, and slightly sweet, and fruity. Like a juicy plum? I definitely want more Mi Xian – whether from TTC or Butiki. It’s great.
This is one of the ones I got in yesterday’s order!
And I need something strong. So strong. Current events and everyone discussing everything repeatedly, everywhere I go, is wearing me down and I’m frazzled and down and hiding on the 3DS forums on Reddit because THAT seems safe, so far.
I don’t drink enough breakfast teas to appreciate every nuance of this, but I do appreciate how bold and malty it is. And I am detecting citrus-y notes as well. I like it. I let it sit for 20 minutes before taking my first sip, and even though it had cooled, it still tastes great, without any bitterness.
Yes. I’m satisfied with this. :)
I was sipping this all day while we moved the last of our stuff back into the suite. Eeesh. It was such a long day but this was such a beauiful tea. Thanks Sil I didn’t get a chance to log it while I made it but it was great and quite tolerant to abuse. (Sorry tea – I kept steeping it for 8-10 minutes…)
