806 Tasting Notes
Unfortunately I finally finished this pouch, so this is a sipdown.
I really enjoyed this even though the oolong was fairly lost among all the flavouring. Considering that this is the only tea I have had with Saskatoons in it, I liked it for that reason for sure. Mmm, makes me think of Saskatoon pie (which is so delicious).
This is a sip down today.
I have really grown to love these roasty oolongs. This one in particular has really grown on me since the first time I tried it. I will miss the sweet waffle cone notes.
I resteeped at 2 and 3 minutes.
Slide note: this brings my cupboard down to 200 teas but I haven’t logged my new 52 teas or their best sellers sampler. And I have another Verdant order that should be arriving pretty soon!
Flavors: Flowers, Honey
This will be a short lived sipdown. I was hoarding this pouch but I have an order in the mail, so I finally got up the nerve to drink the rest of it up. I have a bad habit of “saving” my good teas, but I have no idea why. I am worth it, and I should drink special teas whenever I want!
I have found my preferable brewing of this tea to be 1 Tbls of leaf. For the first steep, I boil the water and let it cool for a minute or 2.
Then I resteep with boiling water for 4 and 5 minutes.
I finally ordered more of this tea so now I can stop hoarding it. I made a Verdant order using my certificate from the Black Friday order. So, ya I have made too many orders lately.
This tea though, I want to always keep this cocoa gem in my cupboard. To my surprise, I actually have enough leaf for one more cup!
