8562 Tasting Notes
Since Stacy is going to be leaving the tea scene, i thought it might be nice to pull out the last little bit of this. I have enough for maybe another cup after this one and I’ll be enjoying it as i celebrate having been fortunate enough to begin my tea journey when Butiki was still around. Thanks for so many awesome teas Stacy!
terriharplady my dearest tea sisiter, let me have a bit of this when i was at her house exploring her teas haha. I have to say that this is a really delicious tea from YS. It actually hit the spot a little better than LB this morning, but don’t tell LB that! I brewed this one western for ease and was left with a really delicious, slightly sweet but malty cup of tea. i didn’t get much astringency in the cup, which was nice. I’ll have to try the other teal of this variety that i picked up from terri as well and see how it compares.
oh boy. it’s finally over. I’m home and not planning on going anywhere else unless it’s for vacation! this was one of my first cups of tea – having not really been able to drin much over the past 5 weeks. So nice to be back with my tea collection and able to drink my favourites and sample all the news teas i picked up last month!

i tried this as a sample while at David’s today. I don’t recall much about it, besides finding it rather tasty. I picked up some more to play around with at home, since i think this might do well as a latte given the flavouring. over all though, the only “pumpkin” tea from david’s that appealed to me after smelling them all.
Tea Count: 138 (was supposed to try and get to 90 by the end of september…way to go terri! and nicole…i’m putting that all on your two! lol)
I picked up a little more of this today as it seemed to be just what i wanted given that i’m sick. I like this one a lot more than others but, that being said, it still isn’t anything i need to have in my cupboard for long. It’s one of those teas that you know would lose it’s appeal (or is that a peal? apple-y) after having mulitple cups. Still though, great cup for watching game of thrones with my other half tonight before i’m off again in the morning.
mmmmm this was one of the teas i snuck from terri when i was visiting her. I’m trying to get through some of my samples so that i can get back to focusing on my larger quantities of teas. This is a really smooth tasting tea. Now, granted i’m a little sick so i’m not sure i’m catching all the nuances today but it’s a rather pleasant cup of tea today. Not overly malty, but still has some maltiness to it. It’s smooth, and there’s no astringency to this. The description mentions floral notes, but i’m not getting any of those, and that makes me a happy camper. Is this better than my favourites from Yunnan? Nope. But i wouldn’t turn a cup of this down for sure. :)
sipdown! this was my other cup of tea from this morning, mostly because I’m feeling guilty that i’m so far behind in my sipdown goals….because i lost a month of tea drinking AND continued to buy things LOL. and pick things up from terri… eep! Back in chicago tomorrow as well, so i need to try my best not to pick up more tea from tea gsch… or adagio while i’m there…. heh.
this was a nice cup of tea for today…the weather is MUCH cooler than phoenix lol and being sick = i want comfort. :)
oh man… 6 weeks down of this travelling thing for work and i’m ALMOST at the end of this. I’m home for a day, which has basically allowed me to switch out my suitcase and be off again tomorrow morning. I managed to relax just a little in phoenix, so my body decided to get sick. Thank god there’s only 2 more days of travelling and then i’m done for a time. It’s been a great experience but seriously, going for a month without my tea is not a good time. So of course, first cup today was this one :) good ol’ reliable. i love this tea.
