1000 Tasting Notes
I’m finishing up the last of my pouch tonight and I will miss this tea! I didn’t drink it very often, but when the moment was right – this tea really hit the spot.
I’m working on a pot of this tea currently and I am really liking this tea with milk/sugar. I think it is about time to move on to something stronger soon though.
Started my day with this again, like so many mornings lately. It was good!
I’m brewing this tea Grandpa style – which I’ve never tried – but am definitely enjoying it. I’m having a hard time describing the flavor of this tea. There is a definite light mineral taste with a hint of wood. I also taste some floral aspects which remind me of a greener oolong. But while I’m not sure about the flavors, I am really enjoying this tea prepared in this manner.
I FINALLY have a Lapsang back in my cuboard! I have definitely missed the smokiness. This version is serviceable but not as smoky as I was expecting based on the intense bacon/jerky aroma. I will gladly drink the rest of this package because it does nip the smoky craving, but will most likely return to Upton’s Lapsang Souchong Black Dragon after this package is gone.
I now have in my possession a very pretty matcha bowl from Etsy (courtesy of threewhales for Christmas)! And yes, I received some matcha and a whisk – so I’m completely set up. And yes, I have had 3 bowls of matcha since about 3:00 this afternoon. Have I mentioned that I love caffeine? Yum!
This is a good tea, but not strong enough for a wake-up tea. I guess that means I’ll have to drink more tea – what a great problem to have.
Once again I am starting my morning with this robust blend. The Queen really knows just what to say when you would rather lounge around and nap instead of being productive. Now I’ll have a productive day along with a delicious tea!
This is a great, smooth afternoon tea with a bold tea flavor followed by a nice fruity aftertaste. This is SO good and perfect for a rainy day.
I have not had this magnificent tea in my cupboard since June. What was I thinking? Anyway, the Queen is back now and I am so, so glad. I drastically oversteeped this tea, but the Queen never fails. After taking my first sip since June, I seriously said “How have I made it for the past 6 months?” Mmm… roasty, slightly smoky, smooth, cocoa and heft. I should definitely be able to get my laundry and baking (for my husband’s work party) done tonight!
