2279 Tasting Notes
Just another herbal thing I’m trying to drink up. Even though turmeric tastes strongly of dirt to me, I do like this one with the vanilla and cinnamon.
I usually drink it as a latte with a touch of honey, and tonight is no exception. Just need to finish it before I ensconce myself in bed, because my duvet and sheets are all white… very aesthetic, but not very practical.
My other review of this is under one of the Yunnan sourcing entries.
It’s been a while since I had a tea quite like this. I’ve been drinking a lot of black teas and herbal teas, trying to get through my stash. But uhh, I have a LOT of puerh I need to drink.
This one, uhh, tastes wet. Yeah I know, tea is wet. But it gives the impression of leaf mulch. The damp understory of a forest. That kind of wet.
But it has body. A little tannin. Some sweetness.
Not what I’m used to drinking these days, but a nice change.
Ahh yes. Thank goodness I had a previous note on this one. Something shared with Dexter. (I have SO MUCH puerh shared with Dexter, it’s almost frightening).
This is really nice. Smooth. Spicy. Easy to drink. Easy to steep. Honestly if this were looser it’d be a great one for my parents. They don’t really do cakes, tho.
I’m really glad I don’t get rid of more teaware. Will I continue to use it? Who knows. But I’m enjoying it all today.
I went through my teas today, organized things, bagged teas that I like to drink but don’t want to clean a strainer for, etc.
And I found a tin of samples. Heh.
This one is from Sil. I do like it. It’s sweet. A bit sharp as raw puerh can be. I don’t have anything excellent to say about it. Just. It’s nice. I appreciate drinking it today. Thanks!
Oh, this is good. Different from my standard Murchie’s blend for the fall, but delicious. It’s missing some of the… astringent/tannic flavour that Murchie’s has, but that’s explained by it being a different blend of teas!
I’m happy I got this, but I still might do an order from Murchie’s for the classic.
Taken with milk and a little maple syrup.
I’ve been enjoying this tea SO MUCH. It’s so good in the afternoon with a dollop of milk.
I bought another 100g over the weekend, when I finally managed to go visit my parents. Transit isn’t really safe, especially considering my mom helps care for her mom, so I rented a car and isolated 2 weeks prior, got a super fancy mask for the ferry (because if you’re not on the upper decks, you have to leave your car), etc, etc. It was a procedure, and so expensive, but also super worth it.
Yesterday was my day back home and it was really hard. Today, I’m trying to get through some homework for class. I better get back to that.
Having this again. Reminiscent of bagged orange pekoe teas, yet more and better.
Malty, delicious, tea. IDK what the flavours are, friends. But it’s good and I like it as a nice basic non-assam black tea.
I’ll have to ask mom to get me more. :)
Hahaha. All reviews of this tea are from me.
Had it today, steeped strong, with some maple syrup. I’m out of milk, you see, and can’t get to the store until tomorrow. And I needed caffeine.
Today is the second day of class for me. It’s gonna be A Lot. A good Lot, but A Lot.
Is it naptime yet? (No, I’m still on a zoom meeting. It’s been 5 hours.)
