1693 Tasting Notes

Amazing…yet incredibly subtle. I would only buy this to drink it once every long while, due to the attention that must be provided to it.

Further thoughts forthcoming on CreateWriteDrink.com.

Yeah…I did not enjoy the rest of this sample as much as I did initially.

Made a pot of this to share with my mother, finishing the sample. A pleasant summer drink.

Free cup of tea with my loose leaf purchase. I have had worse pu’erh. This one is nothing special, especially at the price they charge for the loose leaf.

Oh this is delicious. This is absolutely what I needed, this afternoon.
Sushi lunch with the standard sushi-house green tea was tasty, but this…this hits the spot.

Haha I am eating sushi as I read this note. It must have been a sushi kind of day.

Spencer

Must have been! Having tea with that?

mj

Naturally :-) Jade Oolong by The Northern Lights Tea Company. I actually shocked myself by wanting something green tea-ish and that’s the closest thing I have other than Moroccan Mint. But mint + sushi? No thanks

Ok, weird question, but I see that you are into fountain pens, inks, and paper. Do you happen to be a forensic document examiner?

Spencer

Mint plus sushi does sound weird. Oolong could be tasty though!

Haha, I am not a forensic document examiner. For that matter, nor do I have the skills for handwriting analysis. I simply enjoy the tactile, analog experience of handwriting, as well as the engineering of fountain pens.

My mom is a forensic document examiner and she restores and collects Sheaffer pens and typewriters. That’s where that weird question came from :)

Spencer

Very cool! I just finished restoring a Sheaffer Balance Slender, myself, though I am quite the amateur at it.

I seem to go on weird matcha-less stretches, not having any for weeks at a time, then coming back to it for a full day of drinking.
Somehow, despite the heat outside, this is not seeming to fit today, and I think I will move-on after this cup.

Unlike anything I have tried before, the flavor of my cup of Noble Twist remains most definitely Earl Grey at the base. However, the tastes of fresh orange and lime snakes throughout the cup.

The flavor of blueberry did not crash across my taste buds, like the flavor does when biting into fresh blueberries. Rather, it slid across the tongue, well-blended with the black tea, letting me enjoy the flavor of the Ceylon, too.

Profile

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
