1390 Tasting Notes
Woo! This sipdown puts me at 200 teas. That’s about 52 sipdowns since the 19th. HOLY SMOKES.
It helps that they were pretty much all one-cup size, but still. #PatsSelfOnBackProfusely :D
Now to get down to 150 in the next month! It’ll be harder since a lot of my little samples are gone, but, it’s nice to have goals!
And this was a free sample from Yezi! I think it’s my least favourite of the three, but it still is a nice straight black. Smooth, a little malty, and a little sweet – quite enjoyable, but for some reason not quite worthy of poetic prose like the other two. Still, I recommend Yezi teas! You can tell they are high quality, and worthy of many steeps!
I’m drinking this cup as part of Operation:NoStaleTea since this tea is about 10-11 months old. It was the first Assam that I truly loved and it holds a place in my heart for that, but I don’t think it needs a place in my cupboard anymore. There’s something about it that I like less than, say, Tiger Assam. :D
Last sipdown for the day! (201)
I had other cups but couldn’t log them all because we were doing our roleplaying game and that kept me busy.
This is a pretty decent cup. I haven’t been craving rooibos as much lately so I dropped the rating down on this from 90 to account for that.
But I’m pretty happy for this sipdown. It’s one of my oldest teas so that’s two birds with one stone! :D
Another one from Sil (206)
I only need 6 more sipdowns in the next two days! HOLY MOLY. I’m totally amazed.
And this puerh is rather good. It’s very earthy but I can taste a little bit of sweetness to it. It makes me think of caramel more than vanilla fruitiness, but it’s still good. I wouldn’t crave this often, but it’s a tasty.
