8570 Tasting Notes
I had this one this afternoon while trying to add all my teas in to my cupboard lol It takes a while because i need to date them, add them to my spreadsheet, find them in steepster, add them if they aren’t there…but i’m done. At least until tuesday when i get the teas that my tea mule is bringing up for me lol
When i left on my trip, i was at 95. Now that i’m back, my cupboard is at 133 ( + 7 inbound, so nearly 140 if i don’t’ drink some before the teas get here…)
I’m back….for at least a week before i leave again. This is very nearly my first cup of tea in a week, with the exception of the sample i had while at Adagio – vanilla oolong (which i almost bought surprisingly enough..) I had this early this morning on my walk to pick up a package from dexter and get some breakfast…still not used to having a house with food versus reataurants. Especially not since tonight i’ve got an overnight which will have the worlds worst food provided. blech. So glad to be back with my tea for at least a little while…even if i did over splurge on tea while in chicago lol
I asked for a cup of this yesterday while at adagio…not sure what possessed me besides being a sucker for most things “vanilla.” I think it helped that it’s a dark oolong and not a green one….it just smelled so lovely.
And you know what? I liked it. Me! An adagio non herbal tea that I liked…. So much so that I nearly bought some and even this morning, I’m contemplating it….though I’m for sure running out of room in my suitcase to get things back as a carry on…
final verdict on this one now that it’s a sipdown? Lovely taste but with an astringency to it that makes it good for me , as a morning tea. I’ll need to have a few more of my other teas before deciding on a final breakfast sort of tea but this one is pretty good :)
I’ve had more to drink but this is all i have time to track at…hopping on a plane in a few hours. Final count before leaving: 95 let’s see what the damage is when i get home haha
I’ve had this a few time over the past couple of days but haven’t had time to log things. Since it’s my last cup, i figured i should at least get something in here :) On the whole, i’ve rather enjoyed this one – preferring it to the marangi estate assam that i also picked up from norbu. Mostly, i’m just left wanting to try a whole lot more teas from norbu :) thanks again NoFarS for introducing me to them!
