449 Tasting Notes
Not sure how I feel about this one. I’m going to have to try it again to do a real rating or tasting note. Maybe I’ll just go take a nap because I’m feeling really out of it now, and I don’t even remember what this tea was like only that it was so-so. Shrug. I’m tired of being sick. I know I’m better than I was only a few days ago, but I’m still not doing great. It’s times like this that I realize how sick I still am, when I can’t really remember the mug of tea I just finished.
I opened the small sample size pack of this and loved the faint scent that rose from it; it smelled like an early spring day, when things are just starting to get green and grow. (My nose is working mostly now. yay.)
I added water and I was immediately surrounded in this green envelope of aroma. I could taste it in the air.
I steeped this western style in my ForLife mug. I’m at work, so I think the water wasn’t as cool as it should have been. Fortunately for me, things seemed to have survived their somewhat rough treatment. The first sip…much lighter than I had anticipated from how strong the scent was while steeping. But delicious. I really enjoyed the light flavors of this, green but not overwhelmingly so.
This tea did remind me of spring with the lightness of the green flavor, just a touch sweet, very fresh.
I’m excited to try the other small sample pack of this gong fu style.
What can I say? I have a cupboard full of teas and I’m drinking this one again tonight. But oh oh oh so good. I wish my computer was working so I could actually rate this tea. But like everything else lately, my computer is dead. The hard drive has about a billion bad sectors and it’s just not running anymore.
But this tea….It’s soothing my throat that is raw from coughing. It’s soothing my tired body. It tastes so good.
This is nice. I love the lemony creaminess of this tea. I’m not really getting grassy like other people said, though.
I want to enjoy this with a nice piece of lemon shortbread.
This is actually the third tea I’ve today. I should go log the others, too. I’m still sick and the cough medicine is making me loopy.
I have about 2t of this left, enough for a small mug (I usually use a 15 oz mug) so I’m adding it back to the wishlist.
Oh wow, this is good I mean really good.
Vanilla, almond, creamy.
It reminds me of a shortbread almond cookie.
It’s also really creamy. Surprisingly creamy. Deliciously creamy, especially since I’m sans dairy right now.
I haven’t tried a resteep yet, but the tin tells me I can.
The resteep is just as delicious. Maybe not quite as creamy, but still creamy and delicious.
