8269 Tasting Notes
I picked this one up yesterday as well and i’m glad i did. It was a good cup to enjoy in the evening. That being said, this doesn’t call out to me like some of david’s other herbals so this sample is all i really need. It’s sweet and very much melon like…but in a pinch i’d MUCH rather have lupicia’s golden honeydew :)
Smokey tea this is for sure! Terri sent me this one in the last round of tea we exchanged and i love it! This + a splash of maple syrup made everything right yesterday out in the cold :) I’m glad i have a little more to have again as i’m mostly out of smokey teas in my cupboard at the moment heh. This has got a great balance of smoke, malt and strength to be great in the morning! thanks terri!
I had this one yesterday while we were out and about. I think we over did it a little as by the end of the day we were both sore and today i’m a little worn out. This was a great tea – i really need to keep drinking my yezi teas. They are one of those companies that i forget about, drink again and remember how much i enjoy their teas. lol
GCTTB i pulled this one out since there was maybe a sil sized mug left and i always feel bad when there’s a metric ton of one company in a tea box lol. I still really enjoy this one but only in the sense that the occasional cup makes me happy. If i had it every day i wouldn’t like it as much. If that makes sense.
Final Count: 129 (sooo close to being able to buy tea!) Here’s hoping i can get to 120 this weekend though i’m not holding my breath since we have plans most of this weekend that won’t let me drink too much. And a lot of teas i want to drink are puerh which require my time :)
Edit: I also had a stout french vanilla coffee beer today…. totally interesting and fun to try!
Cold brew of this today while i pack up an enormous amount of tea swap packages. Having finally sorted through all of the amazing teas MissB sent us, they will be out the door to other homes tomorrow! Plus a few swaps, some surprise packages and other goodness. I feel very productive considering after tomorrow i’ll just have a box for cavocorax in my house with teas for VARIATEA, and my ongoing box for Terri that is always open waiting for teas. We also got new tiles put in to the kitchen so we can rework the crap work the apartment people did….minor expense in a plce we don’t own to just get the kitchen sorted. Not as productive a staycation as we wanted but at least it feels like a few things were accomplished. And i DID get a tea tray haha.
Still enjoy this one cold brewed and hot brewed, but won’t cry when i finally finish up the last of the 150g or so of this tea i bought while it was a around heh
totally gapped on doing a review for this today but i’ll likely pick it up again tomorrow in any case. I am trying really hard to get through reviewing the samples from Wymm tea that they were so generous about sending out to people. So far yesterday’s shou was my favourite but this one was quite nice. I remember most that this was slightly sweet – slightly floral but not to the point where i didn’t want to drink it. Only got through a few steepings today so more tomorrow.
Final Count: 131
