Recent Tasting Notes
And another tea is gone (though I’ll do multiple steeps so it’s still around for a little bit longer). Earthy but sweet and fruity, this is lighter than a lot of the Chinese blacks I tend to favor but the smooth sweetness and lighter body make it a nice, relaxing tea.
I’m attempting simultaneously to be productive and relax today. The relaxation part is where this tea comes in. A smooth, comforting tea that is dark and strongly flavored, but not stout – perfect for relaxing. But not too sure about how it’ll mesh with the productivity portion of today’s program.
Yet again drinking the bagged version of an Adagio tea, although I have taken the leaves out and put them in my glass pot. I used 1 bags worth of leaves, 160ml water, 80 degrees C, 1.5 mins. I’m starting to like this tea the more times I brew it, it’s certainly not the highest grade of Long Jing, and perhaps a tiny bit over-fired, but still some very plesant roasty, citursy notes.
This is leftover from Saturday, I think. Steeps 3 and 4 iced. I usually try to drink stuff the day after I brew it when iced, so this one is a bit older. Oh well. If I die in the next hour, we’ll know why.
This tea has no sugar but it tastes like sweet tea. Not like southern sweet tea – it isn’t that sweet – but what non-southerns make their sweet tea taste like. Then there is there slightest smoky taste on the tail. It’s really good. Makes me even sadder that this tea is gone.
ETA – As it warms up, the smoky tastes becomes stronger though the tea still tastes sweet and smooth.
Hmmm, I’m almost out of this. Seems I drink it a lot
Needed a good ole flavored tea I could trust today. Nothing that I had to think too hard to enjoy since I am lacking brain activity today. I have decided in my next life I will not work with young human creatures for the sole reason that they seem to carry nasty germs around. And I always catch them. (As a side note, I do love my middle schoolers. I really do.)
So to comfort my poor immune system, I am consuming a large amount of strawberry tea and peanut butter cookies. The two of them actually compliment each other very well.
