333 Tasting Notes
I’m sipping Golden curls and having 2 tea cookies. What I like about these cookies the most is that they are small, for me it’s just the right amount. These are classic, old school cookies with butter and other good stuff in them.
It was indeed much sweeter than I expected. Very refreshing, smooth and sweet.
I have a soft spot for Darjeeling tea. It’s smooth, delightful, very little astringency. It’s not overly dark or intense, just very enjoyable.
I have added some new artwork with “I love tea” message here:
If you like it feel free to use it :) Personal use only.
Intended for: printing on a t-shirt, bag, hoodie or anything you like.
Clarification: Keep in mind that on the monitor the size looks huge but when printed it will be much smaller.
Have to admit this one is not my favorite. It’s o.k. , just not my favorite. I can hardly taste anything but the mint. Mint is one of those flavors that just takes over and pretty much “kills” anything else.
Had this tea with apple pancakes. All the ingredients for the pancakes came from my local farmers market. This was most excellent combo.
Here’s some tea related artwork I recently created. It’s free for anyone to use.
I have already printed the design on an off-white canvas tote bag.

Sipping my moderately warm cup of Anhui Keemun and trying to relax a bit. The tea is malty/leathery/smokey and complements my French apple tart well. Just launched my website re-design so I feel I deserve a little break http://www.antemeridiemdesign.com/
It is official: tea disappears in our household at an alarming rate. I got a neat little package from 52teas and I’m trying Jasmine Grey right now. It smells like bubble gum or gummy bears … ah the simple pleasures of childhood. The taste is really pleasant: not overly sweet, with some underlying citrus tartness which I really like. Most of the time I drink unflavored teas but I’m not a tea purist so I do enjoy flavors as well and this is definitely enjoyable.
Here goes the last bit of Spring Darjeeling. I like this enough to reorder. Furthermore, I will probably order Darjeeling Sungma Summer as well. There are certain names that to me sound fascinating and “Dar-jee-ling” is one of them. I just like repeating it as the sound of it is beautiful. Or “Coconut Pouchong” – it’s bouncy and fun.
I look into my glass cup – only a few sips left. I will enjoy them as much as I can.
So many teas, so little time … I mentally examine the contents of my cupboard and yet again am drawn to Anhui Keemun. I never measure anything, just eyeball so sometimes my tea comes out great and sometimes not so much.
Tonight it perhaps could have been stronger but still very enjoyable.
