93 Tasting Notes
So, I sipped to this tea and guess what??
It tasted like… wait for it… wait for it… TEA!!
(Yes! I am a HIMYM-fan)
Heh, no seriously, it tasted great for a clean black tea. It has a orangy note, that sweetens up everything and makes it superFRESH… Of course Me likey.
I resteeped the leaves 3 times, and it only getting better by it.
I missed you Steeps :) I have been holed up in a little town in South Greenland with only 3000 people inhabitants. And now I am back to civilization and ready to upload all my tasting notes…. Oh, the joys of cheap internet!
I am not the biggest Pukka-fan at the moment… Maybe I lost the gift of tasting.
Why? Because ALL their (Pukkas) tea taste like bitter liqourice or hibiscus. I loved this tea half a year ago, but now It’s like:
Let me explain. The tea smell like herbs, with a fresh and “bitter” note. When the bag is steeped the bag leeks out a red color, that slowly colors the tea red brown. Taking a sip reveal a sweet bitter tea with a spicy end. Is this minty? I don’t know. Or rather – I can’t taste the “mint.” It taste more liqouricelike than minty if you ask me.
Is there something wrong with me? Did a scorching warm tea a month ago burn of some of my tongue? It’s a mystery.
… But I’ll give it a good rate. In the beginning, this was one of my faves from this company. I think the first impression is the one that count when it some to tea. Everyone changes slowly, but the taste of tea dosn’t.
Have you ever had a “wall” that you just can’t get past?
I heard about writerblocks etc. but I never heard about a tea"wall". You know, like suddenly losing the strength to drink tea. Yup I had the tea “wall” or “block”. For like a month … or two. Maybe three, I lost count.
But today I took some tea with me to school. Among them ANASTASIA. I took my first sip of tea today and the only sentence that went through my head was:“Welcome back color”.
(It’s a name on a album by Tina Dickow). I don’t like the song or the lyrics, but the title is fitting for that little moment of tea for the first time in months.
I don’t remember writing a note for this tea so let me tell you about it:
It’s a black tea, smell’s of bergamot and other spices… But it taste exactly like Earl Grey. Just a bit sweeter and bitter. If you had to pick one of the two – then pick this one just for the can. It’s prettier.
… I got into the kitchen and found my teachest raided.
Two used bags had been left to dry and rot on top of it – I wonder if someone is trying to piss me off intentionaly, but I think it’s just some poor absentminded parttimers who don’t know that the tea is PRIVATE.
sigh In truth I am just very upset to find that the only tea left was the green rhubarb.
It’s creamy, sweet and green – and soo very not what I need at the moment.
As for the tea… well. It’s good.
My gadget-crazed-boyfriend Jensi brought home a icecubemaker.
Yes, an ICECUBEMAKER. The man can’t wait for water to ice, no, he needs a BIG gadget to make it faster…And here I thought people where joking about guys and their gadget frenzy. And lol of all lols, I get the biggest gadget shopaholik guy in the intire island!
(When we where in France he saw a pancakemaker that weighted !"#€ – can you belive that’s our only souvenir from France? It is. I am not joking, it’s not funny)
Turns out that the icecubemaker is one of my favorite gadget because I can make icetea in minutes. Wee! I had a idea in the back of my head that suggested this tea might be good iced – AND IT IS!!!
It’s amazing, I love it! What was the word I read in the steepster dictionary?
Teagasm? Teagasm! I recommend everyone to try it cold, it’s awesome! (At least for me, that is!)
This tea taste of cardemom and it’s so christmass-ish!
