8556 Tasting Notes
sipdown! the last of this is off to my tea sister terri to try :) i’ve been drinking this all morning while i get the house a little more tidy for friends who are coming over tonight. I’m hoping that i’ll have time to finish tidying up AND maybe make some chocolate chip cookies…now that it’s fall i just want to bake! haha I love this tea. It might be one of the very few white teas that i keep around in my cupboard. It’s got the right balance of sweetness to it and actually HAS flavour – something i find most white teas to be lacking in. OFten it’s just warm water to me when i drink other whites :) I also really like that i can continue to resteep this one and it lasts for a number of steepings :)
sipdown! but it will be back…soon :) i had this in the morning as my wake up tea with my everything bagel with herb and garlic cream cheese. Perfect start to the morning! I love this tea. Today i drank one cup normally – this is smokey with a bit of brightness to it, some hints of cedar… soo good. Added a splash of maple syrup to a second cup and it was even more delicious. I do love my smokey teas with a splash of maple! thanks again for sharing this one lala! happy to return the favour anytime!
Final tea of the evening – while settling in to watch some walking dead in honour of Halloween. I’d forgotten how much I enjoy this tea so it was a nice tea to revisit. I like that it’s clearly a rooibos but super uber fruity and not that woodsy sort of rooibos. We’ve got friends coming over for games tomorrow night, so that should be a lot of fun.
Final count: 80…made my goal after all, even though I didn’t get to drink tea most of september! Woot woot! Though I still have a few teas from April, so I still haven’t made it to my “6 month goal”
this one worked a little better today. I actually preferred it as it cooled, so maybe i’ll try this as a cold brew. I’m still not quite getting buttermilk but as i do like the base, i can see finishing this off. Not a reorder for me, and i’m glad to be getting the chance to share with a few folks :)
noms. at this rate i’ll be through all my WP teas in record time! I think i’ve been starved for new straight teas so these have been a welcome addition to my rotation. Not much to keep on saying about this one beyond the fact that it’s a great little tea full of delicious cocoa notes and a slight sweetness that makes me smile :)
mmmmmm boychik sent this one my way and ive been saving it for a day when i could drink it all day long! :) Rather than take a long series of notes on this, i wanted to just sit and enjoy it. Overall impressions – this is a fantastic puerh! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great journey.
this was a bold, strong tea to begin with and lasted for maaaaaaany maaaany steeps. Initial steeps were sort of earthy but also sweet and smooth. i picked up leathery notes and what i guess i would call sort of citrusy? i think i’m going to have to track this one down and pick up a cake. thank you so much boychik. I’ve really loved some of these fantastic offerings you sent my way!
