1771 Tasting Notes
So we’re awake and the heat isn’t running yet and I’m being a baby and feeling cold. I think the people upstairs turned it off when they were gone for a week and I have no idea how to turn it back on. Hopefully now that they’re back they figure it out?
Either way, as soon as I woke up I needed tea – ANY tea – just to feel warm. :) The fruit in this one is just perfect actually with what I was craving, even though I didn’t know it!
It’s turkey day today and we’re having two people over, with a Skype conversation to a third. I’m looking forward to it. It’s funny because I never would have thought that I’d grow up to like doing the cooking etc, but I do. Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!
I think I’m going to fire up Little Inferno on Steam and throw things into a fireplace. That’ll warm me up too?
I just finished two cups of Laoshan Black and hadn’t had enough black tea, so I went immediately to this. The contrast is easier to discern. The PTA is sweeter, brisker, yet also slightly astringent. This is a lovely tra.
Too bad I’m out now.
J says that even if I’m not working by November (and I better be?) that we can justify $100 for Black Friday sales! So, I’m making that public so neither if us forget in a month. Bwahaha
I think the verdict so far, after 3 days of oolong sampling, is that I’m just not that into oolongs. This is nice, and smooth, and just a bit floral and vegetal and it’s fine, but… I just don’t see that I’d crave it very often.
It’s good, but what would I ever do with an oz of it?
I’ll rate it when I drink the second pack!
