1473 Tasting Notes
Another oldie but goodie, a good standard to help me wake up without the use of coffee, which does my tummy no favors. But this puerh is juicy and the perfect morning pick me up.
I live! Fall is on the way and it always gets me back into tea, I can’t help it. In the past year I’ve been on a cruise, I moved in with the in-laws for a month and a half, my wife lost her job and found a new, better job within a week, and I was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Woo. Busy year, but overall a good one!
Reached for this tried and true favorite due to wanting an oolong I can steep over and over and over and not get tired of. I made it in a steeper and put it in my new raccoon lock top mug, the first time with just a single ice cube to cool it enough to drink and the second time with the mug full of ice so I could enjoy a refreshing drink on this warm Toronto afternoon. As always, a+. Will always be one of my favorites.
Side note, I’m dying to see the back of one of the raccoon nordic mugs, all I can find are pictures of the raccoon on front with his little mug of tea. Does anyone out there have one they can snap a quick picture of for me? I’m trying to convince myself I don’t need it since I got the matching lock top mug, buuuuuuuut…yeah. Tempted.
It’s just so cute and I’m still kicking myself for not getting the multicolored raccoon mug from 2014!
So I’ve gone through nearly 100g of this tea and today I had my first bad cup. To be fair, it was also my first time trying it hot and I do sweeten with stevia, so that may have figured in here, so I’m not adjusting my rating at all. But it was painfully artificial and not good at all.
