377 Tasting Notes
I have had this one for a while. It’s a tea kinda day. I love Pu’Erh and was excited to get this one. Thick body. Dark brew. I tried this time brewing in a Chemex…I don’t recommend that. I had to run it through a few time. To me it’s okay but not my favorite Pu’Erh . The flavor is a little metallic.
Discovered this from a chiropractor who I did production work for. I produced an informercial that air on my radio station. I find this to be soothing for my heartburn issues. If I need a little extra I put in a drop of ginger essential oil. I think it’s good for the price. I’ll probably put a box in my DJ boxes when weddings can get underway again. Hope everyone is doing well.
Happy Mother’s day to all the mothers. After taking my wife to breakfast I was going to make Pu-Ehr, but my wife asked me to make the tea that she likes. A combination of oolong and Teavivre Golden Monkey, or as my wife calls it Chinese restaurant tea. Finishing off the King’s Oolong.
Morning Traffic reporting…break out the good stuff. Hey all sorry to be inactive for so long. It’s been kinda hectic in my world. Job…or should I say jobs..family and heading back to school. They carry this at CAM Asian market which is just a phenomenal place. I love their street crepes that they only serve on the weekends. First of all I am a fan of Genmaicha and matcha. This is inexpensive but really good. It’s good as a mixer but I think it’s good straight up hot as well.
So I realize that it has been since June that I have done a tea review….what is wrong with me? Well….life. Let’s see my son Zebedee was born on June and work has been absolutely nuts. One day I’m in at 5:30 am the next it’s 9 or another time. Rarely is there a week where I’m not working 6 days straight and with DJ gigs sometimes is 16 hour days. It’s a challenging time right now in our house. Today I’m celebrating. It’s my birthday. I must have tea! Pulled this one out of the tea cabinet. I love a good Keemun. I opened up the sample and breathed it in! Leathery…malty…the qualities that are awesome about Keemun. It’s a good straight black definitely a good one to have on for number 36.
Sooooooo Happy Ice Tea Day! Is it a coincidence that ice tea month is 6 months from hot tea month in January? No celebration is a must. However I’m celebrating with hot tea rather than the iced version I’m having it hot. https://youtu.be/Xf2MNCu5oqM Yes a little Power Station for your enjoyment. I have a great affection for Ginseng Oolong. I love the sweetness the back end of the sip…funny looks and inquisitions from coworkers. It’s harder to get Oolong flavor because of the ginseng but it’s a pretty good base. If it was a poor quality you would taste it. I’m liking this one quite a bit. I don’t know if I’ll get “boost” from the ginseng but, I’m liking it regardless. Maybe next steep will be on the rocks.
