8479 Tasting Notes
…and that ends this tea in my cupboard for now… I’ll be picking up more of this though as i REALLY like it in the cooler weather. Something about the blend of the needles and the berries just works for me. I also like getting a few steepings out of the brew without it going tasteless.
Final Count: 74 (which is great since i have about 15 teas incoming through swaps and a couple orders….though i’m not likely to see the bulk of them until the end of november. )
Relaxing cup of this tonight while watching a little got with my other half. I’ll have to figure out if i want more of this one in short order since i’ll be in Chicago again, but i’m not sure yet. I like that this is fruity and caramelly, but maybe i just want those things separate? soooo undecided lol.
it’s oolong…it’s melon…it’s all gone! Still love this one, though it appears about 25g is enough to suit me when i pick it up. mostly because it starts to taste too much like an oolong if it’s been around for a little longer. Still, a deliciously wonderful melon tea that i will continue to enjoy in the future!
mmm..happiness is a cup of this one in the afternoon sun while i read my book. My other half is going to be working as much as possible over the next few weeks, which means that i’ll have a lot more time on my hands to be hanging out alone at the house. Suits me just fine as it forces me to slow down and do things like open up my books…sit…relax…drink more tea! haha.
thank you Angel for this sample. Sadly, i’ve had this a couple times now and it’s not the right puerh for me. There’s something about the taste that comes through on this one that just doesn’t work for me. Maybe it’s too green? not sure but i was still happy to try it. I know Angel has some fantastic puerhs that i do like, so i can handle not loving all of them :)
