oh man…back to work. I needed something stronger than this to get me going after last nights festivities and the resulting amount of time it took me to get to sleep. Had a pot of this for breakfast and then went back to my room to make several cups of a stronger tea. I should just start bringing my other tea down to breakfast and asking them to make a post for me. :) See previous tasting notes. this is an adequate bagged green. it’ll do in a pinch
you know you were all desperate to see another tea log on this tea. By the way, i am totally snagging the extra bag they give me in the morning to foist onto random people. That’s right, I’m thiefing (yes i spelled it that way on purpose) tea!
This morning this was a whole lot of yellow flavoured water. I think i’m developing an immunity to this tea, or because i’ve managed to drink my other teas – it’s just not working for me in the morning. I might need to swtich over to twinnings. Thankfully i usually have time in the morning to also make some laoshan black. Just took me a week to get the timing down to have enough time lol
I guess i really should rate this tea. Overall, it’s not a bad little tea, but it’s not great. It’s about what i’d expect from a bagged tea. Another pot of this today. I need as much as i can get in terms of liquid so i’m happy to down a pot of this every morning after my bottle of water and in addition to the juice i also have. Late start to the day but it’s hard to get excited about getting up and going, when you just have work to look forward to on a saunday blech. At least i have a bit of my tea from home to keep me company in the room.
I feel like i should just log this 14 times for every day that i’m here in China :) I’ve switched to this as my morning tea and apparently i’ve been too buy to really get to drinking my tea in the evening which sucks a lot. Some mornings i get a quick cup while i’m getting ready to go down for breakfast but it’s not happening a lot.
In any case… from the china files for yesterday (or your today, since it’s tomorrow here..haha hello this is the future calling..) anyway..omg i’m a little crazy. Yesterday i got to go to a supermarket that’s in the basement of the high end mall across the street from the hotel. It was amaazing! Pretty much kind of like those giant target grocery stores in the US. and then outside of the supermarket was even more shops. We had a blast and now i have a list of parisienne teas to check oon prices and reviews before i buy them lol
wheee! backlog from this morning and it was pretty darn tasty for a bagged tea today. Not sure if they put something in the water here or what today but it was a good morning. I have been finding however, that the tea that i brought with me, totally tastes different than when back home. I’m sure there’s some scientific reason like altitude or some such nonesense but i’m so tired i could hardly care. It’s green..it’s average…it’s here in china!
awe yeah… really don’t have time for tasting notes but since i can’t access steepster outside of my hotel room i had this so ya!
