775 Tasting Notes
why does steepster go wonky and dead around 3p everyday? i mean, i’m not REALLY complaining, i’m just kinda curious.
i have a Hario gongfu teapot that i’ve really wanted to use so i decided to try it now even though this tea isn’t really gongfu material i don’t think. maybe i’ll get one of those little over the cup strainers and then use the gongfu whenever i want. :)
i smelled the tea, and was like ‘this seems nice, why didn’t i buy more of this one?‘…aaaaand then i tasted it. and it’s a hibiscus tea. and we all know the blah blah about hibiscus teas. so i’ll just spare us all and say it’s pretty. and nice enough. and i won’t buy more. and i’ll give my sister the rest of my sample. with love xox
exactly what i need right now.
basically i’m having tea for lunch cuz i had a big breakfast and i’ll have a big dinner.
brought a handful of davids ‘24 days of tea’ with me to try.
my very last box from them arrived last night. now i have the winter tree teapot and bubble mugs, as well as two gongfu teapots and bubble mugs. i’m ready for a tea party! as soon as my communal house finishes renovating our kitchen i’m gonna put all my tea and accessories in the cupboards and take pictures.
I WAS gonna save this to drink with my sister. but I have bad impulse control and wasn’t thinking when I packed it for my trip. black tea black tea black tea!
it’s a nice tea. Not sure it’s my favorite or anything, but it’s nice. Maybe best at night after dinner like as a cocktail alternative. It tastes … adult.
appropriately drinking this tea as i read this http://archiveofourown.org/works/324584?view_full_work=true
the scent of this tea is very strange to me, sweet but ‘off’. and it intrigues me over and over.
i think i like it?
i’ll have to get back to you on that.
