Recent Tasting Notes

Have you ever brewed a tea then fallen asleep before it cooled down?

Unfortunately, all I have to offer about this sachet I received from Togo is aroma notes :/ And thus it remains unrated.

I prepared this according to package directions: Western, 8oz, water off boiling, 4 minutes. The dry leaf smelled like sugar cookie, steamed milk and pine with a hint of anise. The liquor aroma was as expected for a no-provenance-given high mountain oolong: sweet florals like lilac and daffodil, steamed milk, pine forest and spinach.

Then I fell asleep. I awoke to a room temperature tea and in my grogginess, chugged it without paying attention. Oh well. I remember thinking it would be better to steep for a shorter time, maybe lower temperature and even with breaking open the sachet and steeping those nuggets gongfu. Hopefully Togo can offer his opinion of this tea soon.

Edit: I now see in the description that the tea is from Cui Feng mountain.

I have run into that problem a couple of times. My friend actually got me a christmas present to help combat it. He got me a copper tea caddy-thingy. It keeps liquids hot for around 12 hours. So… if start a session with a tea and start to feel myself fade, I quickly brew the tea out and fill the caddy. Then, I put the caddy next to my bed and sleep. When I wake up, the tea is still hot and fully tasty. It works pretty well that way! I can sleep for 10 hours and still have hot tea.

Don´t worry, it happened to me several times. It is sad when it is some unique tea, but it happens :)
It looks nice though!

This has happened to me too, and it’s even more frustrating when you only have one session’s worth of a tea.

Sometimes, when I’m drinking Shou pu’erh Western style, I fall asleep while drinking the mug of tea. Usually only happens with that type of tea, and it’s happened enough to definitely be more than a coincidence. I just find them SUPER relaxing…
