drank Sencha by Davidson's Tea
163 tasting notes

Sipping this tea while I am waiting for the milk to come up to the right temp.
I am making Chevre cheese with all this goat milk around.
I am milking a friend’s goats while she away and have tons of milk around.
So, I am making into cheese, buttermilk and ice cream.
Anyway, I realized while I was sipping this tea that I never logged it.
It is a pretty standard Sencha.
Which is good, because that is sometimes exactly what I want.
Dry leaves smell of hay drying in the sun.
The tea itself does not actually have much of a odor, very light hay smell.
The color is a light yellow.
Taste is grassy and bright.
A bit of a bite or astringency at the back of the throat.
A very enjoyable afternoon tea!

Wow! I am absolutely in awe of you! Cheese! I’ve never had it homemade!

Oh delicious! I wish my daughter had some goats on her farm. She has the room and a barn and knows how to make cheese and me to eat it! The ice cream…oh yes! So good! Lucky you! Do you make feta too?

Love pizza with feta and sun-dired tomatoes :) Doggone it, y’all are making me hungry!

Gmathis: Cheese can be intimidating, but it really is not hard to make at all:)
Bonnie: Goats are simply awesome. But I grew up on a Goat Milk Farm, so maybe I am biased;) And yes, I have made feta before.

I’ve been looking at mozzarella recipes lately, thinking I’d like to try making it at least once. Of course, I’d like to try everything in the world at least once :D

Bio

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
