804 Tasting Notes
I’ve had this across two tiny teapots, with one resteep each. It’s a decent oolong, but not as good as I was hoping for. I think maybe the name was fun enough to up my expectations, whereas if it were just “oolong” I’d probably have liked it just fine. So far, my fav from Golden Moon is the caramel one… I know I’m ordering tin of that!
Backlogging from a while ago. I just found written notes. Must not have been around the computer that day!!
I got a bitter bite with more jasmine than vanilla. I hoped for more of a jasmine tea, but the vanilla was still a bit much for my tastes.
As I’m trying to work through this sampler pack, I decided to have a cup of this with breakfast. And you know what? It’s really good! You can completely pick up on darjeeling, assam, and ceylon, with bit of keemun in there. In fact, the keemun might be the ingredient that sets this apart. I think if I didn’t already love Brattle Street as my go to breakfast cup, I’d put this in the running. As it is, I might one day have to order a tin. Right now I have more breakfast blend than I know what to do with. I’m glad for this pleasant surprise.
backlogging from yesterday.
I am totally bummed out that this is nearly impossible to come by in my town. I’ve looked all over and the other Celestial Seasoning Holiday Teas are here, but I’m not really a fan of any of the others. I’ve resorted to purchasing a few of these from the website (with high shipping, and a guarantee to just squeak in here before christmas). It’s totally worth it, though. :)
