248 Tasting Notes
I boiled the water to a yummy 160 degrees using my new Pino Digital Pro!
Made myself a quick cup of this to drink before microbio lab!
Genmaicha is one of my favorite teas there is. But there’s something about the genmaicha in Samovar’s that makes their ryokucha super addicting. I always try to convince my budget to let me restock this one whenever Samovar has a sale. Delicious, but not too friendly for a college student budget.
I went to my cousin’s over the holiday and she gave me this delicious box of Persian tea. It’s the cardamom that makes this one so addicting. <3
This is the last darjeeling in my cupboard. Darjeelings are interesting because I think I prefer them straight than with milk. They always feel too light for milk.
My first sip of my A&D Christmas present to me. I’m not sure how I feel about this tea yet, I can’t quite make out what this scented oolong is scented with. It seems to have a sort of floral taste with maybe a hint of some kind of fruit.
EDIT: I looked it up and it’s scented with magnolia blossoms!
A simple (and well honestly cheap) assam. <3
Happy New Year everyone! This year I wil aim to log my teas more regularly starting tonight with an “evening blend” tea from Chado. You can barely taste the rose petals, this one just tastes like a mild blended black tea – no particular strong flavors. It still makes a decent pot of tea, which I’m enjoying with a bit of milk.
I’ve been slowly depleting my roommate’s stash of Grapefruit Green. It’s my automatic to-go tea lately when I’m craving something light and fruity. I have a lot of other fruity-flavored teas but they all seem so much stronger than what I’m looking for lately.
