1104 Tasting Notes
Thank you Garret for including a sample of this with my recent order :)
Wow this is a nice green oolong! It has a sweet greenness that reminds me a bit of sencha, and a lovely floral (lilac?) aftertaste. Not as sweet or creamy as milk oolong but special and charming in its own way. I’m really digging the floral element and mineral notes!
I sure have been drinking a lot of puerh lately, huh?
Today I steeped this one at a lower temp for a longer time. I got more creamy nuttiness and less mushroom notes. Yummmmmmm!
Speaking of shu, has anyone encountered this before?? http://04561.com/image/cache/data/20110518/b3-700×700.jpg It’s puerh tea aged inside an orange rind! I’M SO CURIOUS ABOUT IT!
I made it in to the office this morning despite the snow and ice. Luckily I brought plenty of this tea to warm me up, and some homemade chili for lunch.
Still very much enjoying this tea. It is very comforting, sweet, and malty. Loving it! Perfectly full bodied for a cold and snowy day.
Thanks for sending this to me Courtney!
So, this is really tasty matcha, but it doesn’t exactly evoke peanut butter flavor. It is creamy and vaguely nutty though, and really good! I made a warm milk latte with 3/4tsp of matcha and about a tsp of honey this morning, and it was so good I had to immediately make another!
In other news, we had an ice storm this morning, so I’m trapped inside all day, and baking my first souffle (a sweet meyer lemon one.)
I’m exited :)
