2970 Tasting Notes
Another tea that I just found kind of flavourless and boring, although to be fair, I am actually sensing a bit of peanut today – it’s just not enough to keep my interest. Probably putting this up on a sale list at some point – I’ve gotta get rid of some of this tea I don’t care for!
Oh no, it’s happened :( :( I have found a tea sample from a lovely Steepster, and I have no clue who it’s from. Well, that’s slightly untrue – it’s probably from Sil, and might be via Raritea, but I’m not sure. That’s my best guess though, since I don’t think I’ve received any of this from Teavivre previously.
Anyhow! I need to brew up the second half of the sample more carefully, but YUM! What a delicious tea. I just love roasty oolongs so incredibly much, and this is a great example. Makes me want to grab all my Verdant ones and start brewing them up soon, too (that’s not a half-bad idea, actually. I’ve been craving straight tea recently, more than flavoured.) Can’t write much detail here, other than this was amazingly delicious and I want more :D I’m sure the resteep was good too, though I’ve been brewing up so many things lately that I can’t tell one from another, and mix re-steeps together if they smell compatible enough. Haha.
Hahaha, “the unmistakable smell of Stacy’s pumpkin tea” -Sil. That is so perfectly, entirely correct. This is Stacy’s version of a pumpkin tea, with a pu’erh base. That’s really all there is to it. I wish there was more irish cream, but it’s ok as is. I did rinse this pu’erh, though next time I may try not, to see if more of the yummy flavouring stays in. It’s generally very earthy/dark, with the characteristic pumpkin flavour. Worked nicely in a travel mug, though after having had 52teas’ Pumpkin Chai in two mugs the other day, I wasn’t really feeling the pumpkin flavour.
