8818 Tasting Notes
I feel bad. I totally had this one yesterday but omg was work insane, so i didn’t get a chance to track anything. I am a fan of drinking this one a little more western style over the course of the day. I’ll be sad when i finish these up, but also happy since it means i’m working on drinking up my puerh!
mmmmm sample from crowkettle this one is quite lovely. thankfully i brewed it at a lower temp than usual for my blacks, as i hadn’t registered it was a darjeeling. I like the cherry flavour this has going on as well as the sweetness from the cream. might need to think about ordering some of this for myself…
honestly, where did the day go? I can’t believe it’s already nearly the end of the work day and i’m still scrambling to get things done. :) Pulled this one out and it’s just not the right harvest or something. This used to be my favourite of the keemuns with teavivre and either my tastebuds have really changed or this harvest just isn’t as awesome as previous. It might be time to order up a few samples and re-rank them :)
Finished this one off today – So many teas to drink and so little time! End of May will be here before i know it :) Even playing around with this tea, i couldn’t make it hit the sweet spot that others seemed to have found. It always felt like a creamy black tea. not a bad cup, but not what i’d like to see form 52 teas :)
Sample from crowkettle ok distraction set in while i went to go write the tasting note here. I wreked my foot this past weekend, so this morning, the husband drove me to physio so that i could get an assessment and now i’ve got to go to my dr to see if she can get me some x-rays so that we can figure out what exactly i’ve done. Ultrasound indicates i “probably” haven’t broken any bones…but a few more tests to be sure. All this..2 wks before i’m supposed to be hiking in the grand canyon hahahaha
so i don’t love mead. but i was hoping that this concoction would be up my alley since i do really enjoy genmaicha. However, this is pretty close to mead and therefore not quite what i want. Glad to try it though as it was calling to me in my last order :)
