2176 Tasting Notes
Well the sipdown fever has finally made me crack open this little sample, which I have had for years, and has sat neglected, as it just isn’t my thing.
I don’t like mango, I could care less about papaya, and mate is not something I’ve really tried so far.
But! This was not an unpleasant cup. There was a light fruitiness to it that was actually nice.
Still, I won’t rank it, because its not my thing.
But it is a sipdown, and I am now at 50 teas! Woo!
First work cup of the morning! I was paying no attention to this while it steeped, and it came out really nice, which is annoying. Because I wasn’t paying attention I don’t know how to replicate it! Just my luck.
My sipdown this morning makes me within one teas distance of my first tier sipdown goal of 50. I was sort of hoping I would get there before this weekend. Maybe? I am not sure, and it probably won’t be with this tea, but I shall give it a go.
Almost there. Then the autumnal teas can grace my cupboard once more!
I cannot get a real feel for this. I drink it and then have a bit of tea amnesia. What did I think of it? Did I enjoy it? Did I have a good time drinking it? I didn’t hate it, but my impression seems to be going down with each glass. Not in the “its failing me” way, just in the “I am not finding this memorable” way. A tea that recedes.
Well, the good news is that it won’t be heavily mourned when it gets sipped down!
The last gasps of summer are still upon us. I cannot be said to be very happy as decorative pumpkins are out, but it is still 100 degrees.
This tea is just pleasant. A very crisp sort of grape, and one I am enjoying very much. If you like or are curious about grape teas, when this one rolls around again in December, I recommend it!
