812 Tasting Notes
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!
I found myself craving this tea for some reason this morning. And then I went on steepster and it was one of the first notes I saw. I forget who drank it though. Mm, malty caramel this morning, a real treat. Now off to resteep.
I don’t mind the new steepster but there are a couple of things that kinda suck:
-slider bar sucks on iPad/iPhone
-as Roswell Strange mentioned, I don’t like how the ingredients are alphabetically listed rather than by most prevalent
This is a sample sipdown. I didn’t have this is my cupboard though so I can’t take it out.
I wanted a TGY this morning but also wanted a touch of sweetness, so I ruffled around in my sample bags from Teavivre. This one fits that bill! The honey just adds that touch I sweetness that I was looking for. I don’t think that I would drink this everyday, but it’s nice for a sweet treat.
