Oh cool, since I added these Austrian teas to Steepster, the tea shop has gone online! Decent photos! Good times!
Now that I’ve finished the oolong, time to hit the jasmine. Again, I’m not a green tea drinker but gosh I’ve been enjoying a mug at bedtime lately. There’s something kinda cleansing about it, especially when I’m full of food! Burger Mondays are intense.
And I did it! I finished an Austrian tea, finally!
Funny, I have never really considered myself a green tea drinker. I just don’t really reach for them or feel like them, but in an effort to sip through my ever-dwindling cupboard I pulled my socks up and got to it.
And really enjoyed it.
So now I’m gonna go drink through another one. (There are four.)
Tonight for some reason I reached for one of the greens I never reach for but have never been able to bring myself to throw out, considering they were beautiful and thoughtful gifts from a dear friend on the other side of the world.
It was an oolong. I very quickly remembered how much I do genuinely enjoy oolongs. Bloody heck. Maybe I’ll get through this little guy after all!
Backlogged: I used this in a cocktail on Ginuary.com this year and it worked a real treat. Who knew that tea was a solid base for old punch recipes, rather than water? Apparently it adds a nice zing—I have to agree!
I thought I was going crazy trying to find my tasting note—I was SO SURE I had already written one—but then I found it under Sencha Mango, which I used for ANOTHER cocktail back in Ginuary.
I do love how well gin and tea marry. :D
Ok, after another mug of this one (now I’m confident that it’s an oolong) I’m changing my tune a bit—it’s nice but it’s quite weak; I definitely don’t like it as much as the Tung Ting. Which is good, actually! Look at me hbi g opinions about green teas beyond “it’s a green tea”!
The question is, do I bother finishing the small packet of this or do I justvin it? Can I bring myself to bin a tea? Is it the age of the tea that’s affecting the flavour (though this COULD be a yes I think it would be a loose one as this is a mild oolong by description in any case).
I am ON IT this week.
This is supposed to be an easy drinking green, though I can’t pick much of a difference between it and the oolong (it’s similarly rolled leaf) but that’s probably just because I’m a GREEN NOOB/DON’T CARE. ¯\(ツ)/¯
Still enjoying getting through these, after saying that.
I have read a bunch of reviews of people talking about how wonderful, creamy and smooth they are, but all I taste is bitter cardboard. I feel like I’m missing out on something!
