2219 Tasting Notes
Had this. Tea good.
It powered me (well, plus cereal and frozen blueberries with a side of sweet potato fries) through a whole lot of sewing this evening. Leggings, stretchy skirt for work, and the comfiest yet most unflattering jogging pants ever.
Last bit of this. So mapley. So good.
I wouldn’t order again, as I’ve been having issues with some oolongs hurting my tummy, but I am appreciating this one right now. :)
With milk, because yum.
(A quick rinse, and then a 2 minute steep. I might do a 3 minute steep later.)
Another tea I’m finishing up. From Sil. Ages and ages ago.
It’s decent. I’d like the strawberry-vanilla better on a black tea base rather than a mixed tea base. The oolong/green is upsetting my tummy today.
Thank you for sharing, Sil. :)
(I have no idea what temp the water was at, because my kettle has decided that today is the day it will boil forever. So.)
I have been saving SO MANY teas.
This is one I was saving. Needless to say, it’s lost a LOT since I first got it. It’s an OK tea now, but not what I’m looking for.
I think I need to go through all my teas and try them and just compost the ones that are toast. :/ So disappointed in myself.
I can’t remember if I bought this in Chicago, or if I bought it at some random shop over the summer. Whenever I bought it, it was such a good choice.
Sometimes I just want a black tea later in the evening. This one is perfect.
With milk, as always.
YES. I went to Chicago, where there’s an Adagio and a TeaG, and I BOUGHT NO TEA.
This one is from Sil, who got it from Stephanie, who apparently got it from TeaNecromancer.
What a journey.
I rinsed, and am steeping one heart for a while in my usual mug. It kinda smells like just a floral black tea. Tastes kinda like a floral black tea. Has the puerh been sitting too long? IDK. There’s no funk. Just a little astringency.
Not bad, but not really my ahem cup of tea.
ALSO, I forgot to mention this. I made a gluten free bread dough that’s actually OK. I have calzones in the oven. CALZONES. SO EXCITE.
