741 Tasting Notes
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.

does anybody know a cute girl with some pom poms?
’cause everybody needs someone to spell out their name in a little song
this is one of those teas that i wanted to try it as soon as i saw it.
this oolong is so comforting! and the flavors are mild yet effective.
both steeps were good too!
glad i have a little more. i may even add a little touch of brown sugar crystals like they recommend.
thank to Sil for this wonderfully balanced tea!
today i am drinking this with animal crackers.
i dunk them in it yes i do.
brewed in my small glass gong fu, so pretty. half of the leaves slowly float to the bottom. expanding slightly and turning fresh. the tea is a bright greenish yellow. i even brewed a second steep and it was only slightly less green tasting than the first. very very nice. i have another cups worth and i might even just go and brew it right now. thank you very much for this tasty cup Shelley_Lorraine!
