555 Tasting Notes
what a fruity way to start the day! and jeez do i need it.
(start work rant) my boss is on vacation and my office counter part is out sick. so i am all alone and deadlines are quickly approaching. i CANNOT POSSIBLY get everything done that i need to.
i have moments of motivation followed by a feeling of defeat. and i can’t seem to stay focused.
being so busy also means i don’t have time to really write tea notes as i would like to. but i am tasting all the swap samples! it’s something to look forward to while i am feeling downtrodden. (end work rant!)
i like the scent of the brewed tea a lot and the cup was very easy to drink. i have the leaves saved at home for a second steep! and i’m looking forward to it.
thank you Shelley_Lorraine! thank you.
a dark oolong that is still so light? it’s so mellow. which is a nice way of saying it’s bland but in a good way :)
i wish i was feeling more talkative than that.
but until then… thank you for sharing this tea Shelley_Lorraine!
oh fuzzy little leaves. cute like kittens.
i just don’t think i’m refined enough for Silver Needles yet. they are just so light. i can DEFINITELY smell and taste the jasmine here, which is very peaceful and comforting. but i’m not much for picking out any nuances with these fairy wing light teas.
it won’t stop me from drinking and enjoying though!!
Oo Oo Oo what a treat!!! thanks so much Shelley_Lorraine you are a mystery box pro.
i think you started a trend. you are ahead of your time.
it’s a beautiful tea and smells fresh and shiny. i’m a person who easily likes cilantro. and basil too. i think basil can go in anything. i made this as a very tiny cup. in my gongfu. and did a second steep. so basically i saved the little rest of the bit for tomorrow :)
oh see idk what i’ve been doing, but lately every first cup tastes not thrilling to me, and the second steep tastes awesome possum!
so at first i didn’t get any excitement, but yum the second cup had it’s woody velvety peach tones. i was surprised i could even catch them but it was unmistakable. my palate is getting a crash course. i’m cramming for the test and hope i retain some knowledge come test time.
otherwise, gotta keep it fun!
go Sil! go tea!
i have one big second steep of this tea left. it’s sitting at home smack dab in the middle of the counter. waiting for me.
i had it for pre-breakfast tea today too.
i love the blend. milder than some other breakfast teas but very appropriate. somehow it tastes kinda timeless. or it makes me think of timelessness? like how things can sometimes feel connected even if they are miles or years or worlds away?
i’d say that’s the sign of a good cup, wouldn’t you?
thanks for the existential crisis Sil!
hey hey hey i enjoyed this!
i mean, maybe i wished it was a little mintier, sure.
but i also with i was real life friends with watson & holmes.
it has a nice mild kinda warm and minty flavor. and i wasn’t super rooibosed out by it.
thank you whatshesaid for giving me more than one tea bag so this easygoing cup can endure!
well i told myself i wasn’t going to let my tasting notes get away from me. but it’s gone and happened again anyways.
i sure can drink a lot faster than i can write about them.
i was SO LAZY yesterday! and i vowed to taper my caffeine off earlier in the day than i usually do, so from my little caffeine-free pile came this tea!
already in a tea bag easy peasy.
nothing to write home about, but not an annoying tea by any means.
i just let the tea bag be lazy right along with me.
thank you whatshesaid!!
i’m watching teen wolf. the entire season in one day basically. watching that much tv in one day is something akin to eating nothing but cake for a day. but i watched it in a half ass way at least, and fondled my teas the rest of the day. multitasking!
i should probably buy some more decaf blacks cuz this is a nice option. bye bye rooibos. whatevs.
oh no. now that i have tasted matcha lattes … i can’t ever un-taste them. their deliciousness will forever haunt me!
an overcast day and lots of lounging around and doing lazy chores at home.
i’ve been feeling particularly lost these days. (i thought it was the cold weather that was inducing a certain melancholy but i guess not) a cup like this is the comfort a soft soul needs. it’s such an amazing treat!
omg how will i ever choose which flavors to buy?
thank you thank you thank you whatshesaid.
