8261 Tasting Notes
mmmmm tasty puerh. I’ve been sipping on this one over the course of the morning. Trying to stick with my focus on getting through some of my puerh samples. this is a fantastic puerh. I really need to buy more of this one – it’s similar to another from teavivre that i really enjoy. There’s something about how rich and full bodied this one is, without being overly earthy or leathery. On to my wishlist for sure as a cake order i think… this is a great every day sort of puerh…
apparently when i picked this up, i’d forgotten that i’d had this a long time ago in a tea tasting note far away. Make note. DO NOT PICK THIS UP AGAIN NEXT YEAR SIL! yeah well i did..and i like it less than i did last year. this is like cardboard coconut macaroon. doesn’t help that i think of macaron’s when i think of this tea..which is a totally different beast of treats. anyway. glad that’s over. never again! haha
whoohoo! finally on today’s teas lol this is pretty much my last day in november to drink teas given the travelling that’s coming up, so i’m trying to enjoy it. the snow is falling outside, and i’m sitting (in between working) in our kitchen nook watching it fall, drinking my tea. perfect only marred by the absence of my other half since he’s at work and can’t exactly do that from home. I do still enjoy this tea – it’s bold and strong and delicious. I just wish that steam would do 50g instead of this 100g crap. even if i adore a tea, i’d rather pick up 50g and place another order when i get through that amount – if only to keep my cupboard under control! thanks agin though for introducing me, omgsrsly :)
not sure what possessed me to pick this one up. I don’t like eggnog, don’t like white chocolate and i’m not a huge fan of david’s….but pick it up, i did and i brewed this up last night while watching a movie with my other half. I’m not sure how i feel about this…it’s creamy…but it’s much more white chocolate to me than eggnog, which is maybe better for me given my intense dislike of eggnog and my only semi hatred of white chocolate…which just isn’t chocolate if you ask me :) I’ll finish the sample of this that i picked up, but that’s as far as that will go heh

i picked up a little of this yesterday along with a couple other teas from david’s. As most of you know, i’m not overly a fan of their teas but i’ll try from occasionally just to see if there’s anything worthwhile. So far, i think i’ve found 2 teas? that i ever bought more than 50g of haha. This one isn’t bad, but on some levels, even though it’s got a weird taste to it, i like the apple cider tea a little better. I’ll drink the rest of this, but on the whole there isn’t much about this one that says BUY MORE OF ME! apple, little hint of vanilla…sweet. decent but pretty average.
i actually made just this on it’s own tonight… last cup of the evening. This one makes for a richer, more dark chocolate cup than the herbal infusions version which is a little lighter. Works for me though, since i want my cacao to be strong and delicious and i just can’t get behind herbal infusions anymore with all the trouble friends have had. so yay for a new source of cacao!
