1045 Tasting Notes
I was EXTREMELY lucky to have been gifted a bit of this tea. Thank you BrewTEAlly Sweet! You’re the best!
I was allowed to go home from work early today due to the winter storm, so I’ve been relaxing with a gongfu session this afternoon http://twitpic.com/dnt1nh
WOW. So smooth…so much honey flavor! Almost a floral honeysuckle but not quite. Also very rich and lightly malty. SO very very good! I’m so happy I got to try it :) :) :)
Good tea. Very comforting in this scary weather! Southern Indiana got hit with an ice/snow storm…but I’m at work today. Luckily my coworker with a Jeep gave me a ride. We do a lot of work for the funeral industry, so even though I’m just a graphic artist the show must go on! I’m hoping it doesn’t get much worse because I have to work on Saturday and Sunday, too. What is up with adulthood ruining snow for me? I used to love snow so much! :(
I made this into tea syrup the other night- I brewed 1 cup of tea triple strength, and then simmered the tea with 1/2 cup of sugar and let it cool. Now I’ve been adding a few spoonfuls of it to club soda…HOLY CRAP SO GOOD!
It tastes like strawberry rhubarb cream soda with a hint of tea. dies
Everyone should try this!!!
However- when I was putting the dry leaf in the steeper, I came across a particularly large piece of bunny graham…and made the mistake of nibbling it. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME! bleh! I had to rinse off my tongue LOL
From the November Classic Club box…
Creamy, floral, dark, vaguely fruity, full bodied, and kind of bitter is how I would describe this tea. Definitely drinkable but I strongly preferred the Dancong. This is not one of my favorite type of oolong, BUT it is nice to drink something different and since BrewTEAlly Sweet and I split the box I don’t have a whole lot to sip through….sadly the same with the Dancong though :P
