223 Tasting Notes
Seriously, what do they put in this? Rainbows and puppies and happiness? Its just so unbelievably awesome every time I have a cup, and can cope with a bit of a beating, like my desperately needs a good bi carb scrub Timolino, or some not quite perfect brewing temperature and timing. Stellar work, RHTB!
Ah poop. I really hate it when work gets in the way of my steep timing. Like with this one. I ended up having to take a few phone calls, and before I realised it’d been steeping for around 12 minutes. Its ended up quite bitter, but just drinkable when I first sip it, but after a minute the sweetness comes through. So there is great potential here when I’m not distracted and can manage a better steep. I’ll rate it when its brewed correctly.
And this is another from my swap with Michelle, that this morning I realised I’d not sampled yet. Dearie me Michelle you’re generous! Still need to finish the box!
We hade my parents in law over for lunch and made them this pie (http://strictlypaleoish.com/2012/04/30/chickenbroccoli-pie/) but with sweet potato not chicken as the mother inlaw is veggie, and these amazing fudge bites – http://pathtowellness.com.au/raw-cacao-fudge-bites/. I made a pot of this oolong to go with the fudge bites. Not only were they a perfect pair, but the consecutive steeps were a big hit with our guests. Beautiful as always, about to do brew 4.
