990 Tasting Notes
From yesterday – needed this after watching Paranormon at the $1 summer kid movies. I am and forever will be a big kid. My wife, grown son, and I sat in the middle of bus loads of little curtain climbers to watch this. No we didn’t go with any of them. It was great fun watching with kids. At one point you could hear the room gasp, then one of them whispered, “He said a bad word”. They giggled nervously at the creepier parts. They laughed and clapper out loud at the funny parts. So much fun.
The tea was comfortable as always – read one of my other 700 notes on this one.
Golden Monkey, how I love you! I read my first tasting note. I can add nothing to it. I also noticed I was able to get 6 western mugs out of a single scoop of leaf. Simply an amazingly glorious tea.
Just got home from watching Monsters University. In the middle of the day. On a Monday. Just feels weird. There were several people in the theater, maybe a half dozen of which were kids. Good mindless fun.
I have maybe enough for a couple more goes at this tin that never ends (not complaining). I used less than boiling water and that really smooths out the Ceylon base. Really hitting my earl grey spot this afternoon.
A nice simple sweet puerh. It is smooth with no harsh edges. Last time I had this I called it book leather with out the mustiness. Today it is more horse tack – which I like. A good start to Monday. Went well with my bagel.
I’ll probably get back to grown up teas soon but not tonight. This is just simply delicious. Got my happy face on.
A quick cup before bolting out the door. This is so good, I wish I had more time with it.
I have a ton of high dollar tea. I wanted this one. The regular version was my first love. yeah, it’s an inexpensive grocery store bagged tea. It is also decaf. If you accept this for what it is, it’s pretty enjoyable. Oh, and I used a cup not a mug and left the bag in it for old times sake.
Looks like Steepster is down again. who knows if this will really post. Anyway, I think the allergy medicine is actually working. I still feel stopped up but man o’ man this tasted so good today. Probably shouldn’t moan out loud in a restaurant but I did anyway. Multiple cups. It is just a cheap bagged tea but has more depth than most. Today it had a light earthy roastedness to it. I swear I was even catching some leather notes. So glad to taste again.
Tonight I steeped this again so I could have the first cup. My son took it last night. The flavor difference between first and second steep is pretty minimal. The biggest being I did not notice the black tea in the cup last night. Today it is very obvious. The fruit flavors are awesome. I can taste the lime, the orange, and the raspberry. The vanilla makes it kind of creamy. I notice on 52Teas site this is no longer available. Too bad for you guys because this is really good. Too bad for me as well as my son has claimed the bag. :)
Ok my son saw this in the mystery box and said we are having tea. Now. My very first 52Teas. I got the second steep because he demanded the first. This is very good. Fruity flavors left and right, but not overdone. I am not going to rate it until I can get the first steep and can set quietly with it. But yum!
