301 tasting notes

One hour sleep last night bleh.

It’s very clean, no fermentation notes, earthy. It was mellow and somewhat light until the 5th infusion then it became rich, thick and creamy buttery mouthfeel. The dark liquor smells of apple cinnamon and earth. Throughout the infusions, there were no particular notes that really stood out, it’s like they said, it’s pretty balanced. With the earth, there is some dried fruit. I didn’t get the bananas but got a little citrus and apple. I noticed some cinnamon and spice notes but they are subtle as well. Towards the end, it did get more peppery. It’s good and I can’t call it ordinary nor can I say extraordinary. I think it would be a good daily tea, during work when you want something tasty but do not need the focus.

It must be going around. Both I and my next neighbor have been complaining of sleeplessness, not normally a problem for me. Hope you enjoy some refreshing rest soon!

ONE hour?!

Tea-sipper, yup, sucks >.<. I tried to sleep, was tired, but just wasted my time so got back up. My fitbit said 1 hr so I must’ve fallen asleep for a bit. Hopefully, that means I’ll fall asleep early tonight :P. hehe

Yikes! I used to have reasonably bad insomnia (I think anxiety and poor sleep habits were the culprits), and I found that listening to ASMR videos on YouTube both calmed me and distracted me from thinking about how I couldn’t sleep, which helped the process immensely. At present, though, I’m so overtired with the baby that I usually have no problem.

Hope you get it sorted out!

I’ll go check that out. I used to listen to sleep mpgs on my phone, that helped but I don’t have that app on my phone anymore. Thank you Kittena. :)

Profile

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong, Black & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. Just as long as it doesn’t have any artificial sweetener.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
