1199 tasting notes

Hello friends I am here, I could not last very long..of course the dashboard is busted right now. Things still suck A LOT but other than finding a job (hahahahahaha I thought this was going to be easier, I have lost count of applications, have only had one interview, and was turned down for it which I don’t mind because it was 6am-2pm or 2pm-10pm and no thanks..), I’ve done all I can for right now. I still have a lot more tea to let go of. I just still can’t bring myself to do it.

So because I get incredibly hot even with it being 77 in my apartment, I have become a creature of the cold brew. It’s been awhile since I cold brewed an oolong and I thought this one sounded like it’d be a good choice. And it is!

It reminds me a bit of the oolong base of the Lupicia Pineapple Oolong, but maybe much more subtle on the orchid notes, or at least easier to drink. It is overall pretty floral, but not like undrinkably so. It almost reminds me a bit of a white tea, there’s something like sweet hay to it. The sweetness also seems like some kind of light fruit. Pineapple’s in the description on here but it’s something a bit more subtle that I’m getting.

I’m not like a huge, huge fan of it, for some reason I’ve had a falling out with oolongs like this even though they used to be my favorite thing. I was hoping coldbrewing would bring the love back or something.

Just for future reference also since I used probably half this tea and might want to do this again: I steeped it for roughly 18 hours before first drinking, but left the tea in there for another couple of hours. It didn’t make much of a difference, but 18 was good. The other time I cold brewed an oolong I went a full day, but I think this was definitely full of flavor at 18.

Good luck with the job hunt, momo! It’s so very hard right now. :( Have you tried temp agencies? It’s a good way to get your foot in doors, meet people, etc.

I agree – Temp agencies helped me a lot right after graduation. My first “real” job was actually a temp-to-hire situation. Good luck!

I’ve been looking at them but they seem more geared towards people who already have degrees or they’re very specific. It’s really not helping the last time I didn’t quit a job within a month is 5 years ago.

Temping really helped me too! I have my current job because of a temp-to-hire opportunity. It never hurts to talk to a temp recruiter even if there is no listing for the exact thing you do. They often have lots of positions they don’t list.
