692 Tasting Notes
It’s my first time having this and I don’t know why I didn’t get excited about this tea sooner!! how lovely!
I’m wiped out after my 8 mile run this evening all I wanna do is lay down asap. so I didn’t sip this slowly like I wish I had. But next time I will give it plenty of attention. Probably tomorrow even.
i read somewhere on steepster within the last 24 hrs that someone figured out that steeping adagio teas at a lower heat for 2 min got the best results. i looked real hard for the post but can’t find it now.
anyways, that is what i did. and it did definitely bring this tea more to life!
the lower heat gives it more room to breathe really. not so smothering.
sometimes you just need to charm the flavors out from hiding.
though Robin would probably just use his smile.
the oriental is mild. i guess it’s assam forward?
’builder’s tea’ is accurate!
i’m watching the final Fringe episodes right now!
update (2 months later)
cuz that wasn’t a review hah
well, i remember when i first tried this i was not impressed. it kinda just smelled like other teas i’d already had and the taste wasn’t as strong as other teas. but this time the scent just kept wafting from the brewed cup. and i just kept looking down at my little cup on the floor (cuz i sit on the floor a lot) and thinking – wow i don’t remember you smelling so good little tea. xo
so this is a chocolate desert tea yes, but i feel like it has a sense of humor. i don’t know if i would really buy it again but i do know that i will enjoy the steeps i do have left with a bubbly attitude.
oh ps: and i do have a used teabag cold brewing in the fridge so i’ll let you know if that turns out interestingly.
enjoyed this at Black Hand Coffee with Emily after a movie
they only have 2 teas to choose from, but at least they are good teas.
they used to have 2 teas and a mate, but they stopped carrying the mate. idk.
the tea is nice. very delicate and fresh.
