467 Tasting Notes
So this is teabag #5/6 that I’m having tonight.
smells of cinnamon and nutmeg
tastes of cinnamon and nutmeg, maybe a hint of earth in the aftertaste
I wouldn’t call this a pu-erh. It tastes like a cinnamon tea. Their Emporer’s pu-erh is better.
The other teabags I finished today: Sakurambo (black), Darjeeling 1st flush -Lupicia; Jasmine green, Earl Grey – Rishi. #6 – will be Momo oolong Lupicia
Sipdown. After the 6th teabag, my tea count will be 251.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Nutmeg
I’ve been really working on drinking down my green teas. Those teas are my least drunk overall and tend to be very old.
1st time – 5/10/18
185F, 5g, 200ml glass teapot
smells of green beans, peas
fuzzy thick texture, cotton, mouth fells silky – faint hint of sweetness
This is a texture tea, mouth coating with an aftertaste of sweetness.
2nd time. 6/18/19
So I did a dumb thing and left this open and exposed to air.
1 min, 170F?
faded, faint sweetness, vague green something, kinda creamy
Flavors: Green Beans, Peas, Sweet, Thick
I really liked this tea when it was fresh. My only concern was size -4oz is a lot. I didn’t finish this tin in a timely fashion and it showed in the tea.
Cold brew – sweet, juicy and vetegal
Unfortunately, this has really deteriorated. It’s lost much of the sweetness and fullness of the previous brews. A much muted sipdown. Probably a repurchase – it won’t be 4oz worth though
