2778 Tasting Notes

This is the second tea thats coming to work with me.
I’m really loving the smaller cupboard size, as it encourages me to drink things that have been neglected, and this tea has been neglected.
And thats too bad. Its not the best Darjeeling I’ve had by a long shot, but its perfectly nice! Its got a sweet mellowness thats lovely to try.
There isn’t a lot of this, so sooner rather than later this will join the ranks of the sipdowns, but thats also kinda thrilling.

I’ve brought my tin of this to my desk at work, and it’s been a really lovely part of my work day.
This is a lovely black tea blend, with a hint of something coco-y, and a light and refreshing brew.
I’m getting much more interested in unflavored blend, and its really nice to discover the complexity that can be found in tea.
Noms.

An imagined conversation with someone about tea

Them: Hey
Me: Hey.
Them: How’ve you been?
Me: Good! You?
Them: Good. Do anything fun this summer?
Me: Yeah! I’ve been getting tons of sipdowns in.
Them: Uhhh
Me: (Oblivious to their confusion and discomfort) Yeah, I’m trilled. My cupboard was really getting out of hand, but I’m trying to find the perfect cupboard size. I cant remember the last time my cupboard was so small, its like 20 something teas right now.
Them: Oh, well, I meant-
Me: (talking over them) Plus I’m getting the teas I feel are more appropriate for the summer drunk in the summer! I’m not going to have any out of season teas when the autumn comes around, and I can buy fall tea with total confidence.
Them: (Desperately) Oh. Great, well, good seeing you, I’ve gotta-
Me: (Continuing on) Like Jingle Bells! I know its got a Christmas-y name, but really, its a light and fruity blend, I like it much better in the summer. I got to sip it down today, and I’m excited!
Them: (Edging towards the nearest exit) Well, great, I’ve suddenly got to go as I’ve just remembered my entire life is on fire. Bye!
(They run for it)
Me: (confused) Oh, ok, bye!

Sipdown!

I’m not really digging this.
It smells fantastic in the bag, and when the hot water first hits it, but I find it brews up so mildly that it barely leaves an impression.
Which means that its getting drunk much faster than I expected it to, but still.
Its generally inoffensive, but not very exciting. When I sip it down I won’t get more, as I’m trying to curate a more interesting collection of teas.

The current time is around 6:45 a.m. The temprature is 70 degrees.
Ugh.
I am sweating through my cup of this.
I’m finding this quite nice, a light and almost fresh breakfast blend, which hits just the right flavor profile for a summer morning.

Time of waking- 4:00 a.m., to take someone to the airport.
I managed to come home and sleep for about an hour before I had to get up to go to work.
It is going to be a very very long day, with me floating through the world.
This tea is nice, but rather more mild than I expected it to be. Theres a somewhat woody note to it.
I am going to need a near permanent stream of tea today to stay functional.

I have a tin of “100 Year” at my house…like it very much.

This is one of the new office teas, and I’m glad its there.
This tea is almost a non-entity. It barely tastes of anything, though sometime its a little bitter at the bottom of the glass.
I will not be even slightly sorry to see it sipped down, and being at my desk will help!

I’ve seen quite a few positive reviews about this one and was considering getting some. Though I haven’t tried it myself as of yet.

Summer sucks. There, I’ve said it.
I wanted tea. I had tea. I am now sweating like a sinner in church.
At least it was tasty?
Excuse me, now I have to go stick my head in the freezer.

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
