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.
I just love Hugo Teas. I haven’t been disappointed by any of them. They just really know how to do straight black tea blends so well!
They might be awesome for other teas too; I’ve only had their black teas. OMG.
I’m celebrating hitting 210 with this cup. It’s a cup I can savour and enjoy; steep and resteep. I’m not drinking it because it’s in a ziplock bag that’s taking up room, or because I want to decrease my cupboard. I’m drinking it because it’s a vibrant and flavourful tea that feels like an appropriate reward for dropping my cupboard down 35 teas since the 19th and the *Sil*pocalypse.
Now that my cupboard is physically smaller (less fiddly bags around) I’m no longer in sipdown mode. I’ll try and focus on drinking some of my older teas now – I have 7 teas that will be in my cupboard for 1 year in the next two months, and it’s time to drink them to keep things fresh! (Except for Tardis. I still have 3 .5/6oz of that and I doubt it’s going anywhere fast. Mmmmm… Tardis.)
