688 Tasting Notes

This tea is a really enjoyable cup, but I can’t rave about these snails as much as others do. The bright taste of this tea isn’t well rounded to me. I feel like I am missing something. Its like a golden monkey but with out the dark notes and I have to say the dark notes is what I really like. I wouldn’t pass up a cup of this, but I probably won’t seek it out either.

I had this with milk and sugar and it was amazing. I really really like the teas that come out of the new 52 teas, particularly the chais!!

My H and S order arrived last night. This tea was one of them. From the description I was secretly hoping for a much creamier tea. My first cup was just strong Berg. It wasn’t bad, just not what I was expecting.

This is one of my morning go to teas. I have maybe 3 cups of this left. I went to see if I could order more and sadly this one is sold out. Maybe it will be back?

In the past few days I tried this tea both gong fu and western. I think I actually enjoy this more western. It is a great cup on a cold cup. This was the last cup An enjoyable purchase.

Bio

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea.
