1113 Tasting Notes
Hi Guys!!!! I’m back from vacation :D
Is Steepster done acting up?
I am glad to be home where the good tea is. I was able to drink one decent cup each morning while on vacation but that was it, and since the water wasn’t excellent they were really only mediocre cups…
I did however find a place to buy a couple of teas in Vegas. My husband and I stopped at http://artisanalfoods.com/ and my husband picked out a couple of spices we can’t get in town and I got a little 100g 2010 Menghai shu brick (my first shu cake!!!) and a 20g package of Phoenix Dan Chun yellow tea which I am excited about. It was hella expensive but sounds delicious. I think they source their teas from Silk Road but I couldn’t find either one on Silk Road’s website. Anyway, I’m drinkin the shu now and it is really good!
I had over 1,000 notifications here when I got back, so please let me know if I missed anything exciting because I’ll never get through all of them! I’ll respond to my PMs soon though.
Missed you guys! :D
Wow this is really good shu! Sweet and rich :) Definitely something I would drink again.
Steepster is making me sad. Still acting up all the time. I can’t get discussions to load at ALL!
It makes me not want to hang out here so much anymore…this was really good shu though and I never would have gotten to try it without hanging out on Steepster :(
I drank this tea yesterday while I was at work. I really enjoyed it! It reminded me of a Kenyan Silver Needles I got from Butiki Teas, with some interesting sheng notes mixed in. Very unique! I finished it up, and before I was going to write my tasting note for it I decided to go stretch the canvas print I had just made…AND I TOTALLY STAPLED MY THUMB! :-O
It was pretty painful. If you want to see, check it out here (not for the squeamish!) http://twitpic.com/ebiscg
Anyway, I never got back to my desk to write this note. My manager took me to the MEC and a doctor pulled out the staple and gave me a tetanus shot and some pain killers. Last night was rough, it was pretty painful and I had trouble sleeping. It seems slightly better today and I am back at work! I could use a nap though…and/or some tea!
Oopsie, I posted my note in the wrong place the first time….
I’ve been enjoying my sample of this :)
It is a sweet, floral sheng, which is right up my alley. Sorry I didn’t have time to write a more detailed note, but this is definitely one I would drink again! Work was nuts today…the energy from this sheng has been much appreciated.
Another puerh from my mystery sample box :D
Oh wow, this sheng is SUPER smooth! I would not have guessed it is so young! I am REALLY digging on this one. It has fruity notes that I always appreciate in a sheng, as well as a brisk energy. I’m really glad I randomly chose this one this morning, it is a winner!
