248 Tasting Notes
Been steadily drinking genmai-cha all morning. We’re on our third refill now~
I got this when I went back home for spring break last week. It’s my first lapsang souchong and I love it. The smokey flavor is very soothing and I love how I only need a bit of leaves to make a decent 8oz cup of it. (Thus making it a very cost effective tea for this college student.)
Also for anyone in south bay area (San Jose), I highly recommend visiting Puripan in Santana Row. A few of the girls that work there are very sweet and helpful. <3
These are my roommate’s and they’re not in their original container so I’m not sure where they’re from. Typical jasmine tea taste though (and jasmine tea is one of my very much favorites)
I first tried it at the tea event I organized for my club last year and I loved it. But I’ve been holding off on buying this tea for a while… mostly because of the price.
But last week during spring break I finally gave in and got a tin. This tea is one of the better flavored teas I’ve had in a while but my palate is starting to veer away from flavored teas in general. Not sure if I love this more than my Takibi yet.
This is what I’ve been drinking from lunch to now. I had two homemade teabags of Takibi leftover from finals week (two weeks ago) so I needed to steep a bit longer but the taste is still good. This is definitely one of my favorite flavored teas.
First tea of the first quarter. I sleepily packed this into my new tumbler and headed off to lab early this quarter. It definitely helped me stay alert for the morning. I managed to get three steeps out of this one.
I made a big batch of this the other day to keep it the fridge so I wouldn’t have to make it again anytime soon. Unfortunately, it’s the week before finals and I’m too lazy to heat it up. It’s still very delicious cold though. <3
