1774 Tasting Notes
After reading Roswell Strange’s review of this (http://steepster.com/roswellstrange/posts/198587) I was inspired to try it for myself!
I was careful not to overleaf, and steeped it for the recommend 4 minutes. The result was decent. It did smell quite good, but there wad an odd burnt note too. I get a bit of toffee in the beginning of the sip, but it sours out near the end. Perhaps I’ll try a tsp of sugar!
And I have 20g left of this to experiment with!
And I’m one cup away from a sipdown of this. :( Too bad as this is a green that I can get behind!
I’m rewatching Doctor Who now that it’s on netflix, but OMG, those early episodes are really pretty awful. And I love David Tennant and his Doctor, but going back just reminds me how flawed some of the characters are. :( Maybe I’ll just skip an episode or two. :P
This is a good though because TEA plays an important role. Even if it is an awful Christmas episode. (Those are generally cringeworthy, aren’t they? Aside from the 2 newest ones!)
Another sipdown! (96)
I find this one has a mild floral taste, a bit of grassiness and a lot of cream to it. It seems like this milk oolong is stronger some of the other unflavoured milk oolongs I’ve had. It’s funny, because when I had it before I didn’t get much cream, but this time I did. Maybe I’m getting better at detecting notes?
This is surprising to me, but I guess I like oolongs now. That’s what happens when you drink one each day for a few weeks, I guess. :P I still can’t say much about them, and remember exactly which one is which, but I do find myself craving one first thing in the morning as a gentler wake me up.
I even chose this over trying new teas from DAVIDsTEA. :P
So I’ll definitely have to order something from Teavivre. I just don’t know which oolong I’ll want. And then maybe I’ll order a few more samples to help me figure out what I like. :)
