Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox – Round #5 – Tea #33
I think I lost my ability to pick out specific pu-erh flavors. The pu-erh I’ve tried recently has just tasted like PU-ERH to me. Maybe I’m not using as many leaves as I normally would. I’m just finding them okay because they don’t have the depth of flavor I like in pu-erh, but then if it’s too dark it seems like I wouldn’t be able to pick apart specific flavor notes. Maybe I’ll try an old favorite pu-erh soon and see if there is a difference. All three steeps had similar flavor. Useless tasting note, sorry!

This has happened to me too. weird. Also my notes for a sheng from the olympics is just ‘pleasantly sour, a bit shengy but different tasting’

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
