545 Tasting Notes
Backlogging. 14 days ago. Saturday morning.
A rich first cup of the day. An on purpose extra long second steep mimicking my accidental extra long second steep of DFT R29 ceylon yielded again a much more enjoyable cup than my traditional second steep times.
2nd steep: 20+ mins
Backlogging. 11 days ago. Friday morning.
I wanted to go with a chocolate tea this morning and this one sounded good even though I haven’t tried it yet. Honestly, I’m really not getting white chocolate strawberry from this tea. As it cools because I’m looking for it I think I get a texture that reminds me of white chocolate more than tastes like it and as it cools further I think I get some strawberry. Not a bad cup by any means, just not getting the intended flavor.

Quickly consumed a cup to wake me up before I had to get ready to leave. What’s notable about this session is that I steeped a second cup to drink post shower then completely forgot about it and was sad to have to abandon it. =(
2nd steep: 8 mins 30 sec
Okay so. During The Great Unlogged Period, I also had this one several more times. The grape instead of raisin flavor diminished some over time but not greatly. But I have not tried it in quite some time.
So this was my second cup of tea yesterday. And it was just weird this time. Something that I think was the oatmeal flavor came out more. But it tasted like fake something that was not fake oatmeal but also not fake plastic but reminiscent of a fake plastic taste at times but at other times tasted like oatmeal or grains. The raisin is still verging on grape-ness but I can get it raisin if I think about it. I’d had hopes this might get better.
