8876 Tasting Notes
noms. super productive day today in terms of work and a few errands and running. Even though it’s been stupidly hot, i have persisted and i’m so close to being at the point where i just warm up, run for 30 mins and then CD. It’s been a long journey (7wks, not counting the 4 wks i did before i injured myself) and when i started i could barely do the walk/run intervals of 60 seconds without feeling like i could die. Now i’m running 27mins straight and feeling good! I’m almost done this tea, which while i’m sad to see it go, is a good thing with the pre orders from 52 teas set to be travelling to me shortly. i love the smokey strawberry of this one.
I’ve been drinking eta today but not really taking notes or wanting to review anything. I picked this one out since it seemed like it might be an interesting experiment to try.The leaves are tightly rolled but expand in to long leaves. The taste is smooth…no “oolongy” notes here, just slightly sweet though light in the brew. I’m going to play around with the steeping times and water to see if i can get a bolder flavour out of this one i think.
