8479 Tasting Notes
Boychik sent this one my way a while back, and these days i’ve been trying to get through those sorts of samples. I have so much puerh in my cupboard and it’s sad when i don’t get to take time to drink it. So I’ve made a promise to myself to continue to make time for myself for my puerh and start trying to take back my life from work :) I drank this over the course of the morning, while booking our vacation! a month to go and we get some serious relaxation time. Spent a little more than i wanted to, but after the year that i’ve had – i need it.
This is a bold, rich puerh. It’s not for those who like wimpy teas. :) I love the colour of this tea…a deep red/burgandy like colour… was especially nice when i accidentally poured it all over the white floor haha.
Initial steepings of this were very woody, slightly leathery but with a bit of a sweetness to it? Later steeps the rougher edges that i didn’t realise were there, smoothed out and there was a hint of a tobaccos like flavour coming through.
I have to head out to meet up with my other half but i may drink more of this later.. it’s tasty! thanks boychik!!
My tasting notes are all out of order this morning and a little bit random. This is a tasty tea. I think my only complaint is that there’s just a bit too many cloves going on. I really like the vanilla, malt and smoothness happening going on. i’ll have to play with this one a bit more – maybe try it with milk and a bit of honey.
i think that this tea is the correct one. KallieBoo sent these my way a while back and i haven’t yet had a chance to sit down with them. I’ve been drinking this over the afternoon while helping my other half feed the little one he’s looking after. I am apparently better at making kiddo eat solids lol I don’t have much to say about this one beyond it’s feeling very middle of the road for me. It’s not bad, it’s not knock your socks off…it’s just kind of there. being tea. neither FANTASTIC! or OMG GROSS… just there. Glad to have gotten the chance to try this, but nothing i need to restock. :)
i think it’s the stevia in this one that is off putting…if the ingredients are wrong and there is no stevia, then it’s something to do with the orange. I don’t hate this….but the artificial taste that’s going on here leaves me thinking there is much to be desired here. Glad i only had a little sample of this.
Bonnie sent these my way a while ago and i thought that they would be perfect for today. I’m working from home so i wanted to get around to trying a couple of my puerhs since i have the time. I THINK the ones she sent my way are these ones, and not the other entry but i’m not sure how to confirm. Either way, let me just say. YES! YUM! love these!
It really is like like sweet flavored kettle corn. I will have to look in to more of these since these are really tasty and could be handle for travelling.
