741 Tasting Notes
the first time i had this tea i was so surprised and delighted that it smelled so much like Apricot**, the baby in Strawberry Shortcake cartoons.
but i made some last night and then sipped it but didn’t drink most of it. so this morning i dumped it out and made a fresh mug before work, and even now i’m not jazzed or anything about drinking it. i guess i’m just not in the mood for this tea as much as i thought i was? (the weather is going to be 60 today! and it was a wacky blizzardy type weather just 4 days ago)
I KNOW i should have saved last night’s cup and iced it. i bet this is a great great summer iced tea!
it’s a bold happy apricot jam sort of scent and the black base mixes with it in a very friendly way.
Apricot is a little white-haired baby with an unusual vocabulary of oversized words. Apricot and her pet bunny Hopsalot lived in Big Apple City, down the hall from Lemon Meringue and T.N. Honey, and like them, she re-located to Strawberryland at the conclusion of Strawberry Shortcake’s visit.
i’m really into oolongs this week. mostly inspired by everyone’s coconut oolong love explosion.
what other Davids Tea oolongs are you favorites? i think i might place an order of just oolongs?
i have vanilla orchid, quangzhou milk, and this citron already.
i like having my citrusy teas in the morning. so this one is perfect perfect perfect.
in my green timolino walking across the bridge on my way to work. it’s windy here but the sun is out.
so i have this weird thing where i feel like oolongs NEED to be brewed in my gongfu pot. so i can watch them get fat and bulk up. like i have to be able to witness the leaf puffing in order for the tea to be brewed.
and i recently realized that this has basically kept me from drinking my oolongs.
sad i know.
so today i have brewed this in my timolino (using a tea bag cuz that basket is tiny)
and the smell is heavenly.
but you knew that already.
i’m turning over a new oolong leaf. let’s celebrate.
one of my many samples from davids.
(i’ve been hoarding them all up, for emergencies)
i didn’t expect this tea to be this delicious! i mean i’m not gonna go buy some asap or anything, but i didn’t expect it to taste so fancy.
it still reminds me a bit of Stormy Night or basically any of Davids chocolate/coconut/vanilla teas. and it’s a yum.
omg i’m so excited!
omg what did i just do?!
i swear i was just gonna LOOK at the davidstea stuff…
but then all of a sudden i had The Earl’s Garden, Bamboozled, and Big Apple in my cart
TWO Timolino Travel Mugs?!?!?!, one White and one FUCKING AWESOME Mate Purple!!!!
i couldn’t help myself! it was just so beautiful!
our eyes met and my knees immediately went weak. and i’m so excited to hold it close.
also i left my timolinos at home today by accident. weird. and it’s also raining and snowing at the same time right now out my window. help me Big Apple.
