244 Tasting Notes
Some backlog today, I got this awhile back (maybe a year or two honestly) and I never really enjoyed it. But with two ounces of it, and it’s age, I decided I may as well start drinking it down. And honestly, it grew on me. It’s got a really lovely fruity flavor to it, not too sweet but just sweet enough. Great during the summer once it’s cooled a bit after steeping.
Flavors: Apricot, Fruity
This is my absolute favorite tea lately, I feel like it gives me a dark, coffee-like, heaviness to it without the flavor of coffee. I love the density and it really helps jolt me awake in the morning (but I suppose thats puerh for you, huh?)
Today was a sipdown for this one though, so I’m definitely picking up more of this when my free tea reward comes out in October. Until then I’m on a tea buying hiatus…
I’m trying to drink down my stash because it’s gotten very much so out of hand. Eventually I’ll have to re-evaluate what I’ve actually got still…
I made this iced (running low on herbals to ice and it’s too hot for traditional tea) and it’s lovely. I’ve started making iced tea by the pitcher since it’s just so much easier that way, but it also ends up using more tea leaves, for better or for worse. I’m just glad to be finally making a decent dent in the stash!
Sipdown on this one today… I picked this up on a whim about a month ago and I’ve been slowly drinking it down. I love the lemon and ginger and since it’s yaupon it doesn’t give me headaches (yay!) I went into David’s last week and they said they no longer sell this one loose D: if that’s true, I’ll have to try some of their other lemon teas because I really really enjoyed this one and I’m sad to see it go!
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon
I got a sample of this from the T2 Fruity sample box and it’s fantastic! There are some definite cranberry and hibiscus notes in it but it’s really great – definitely something I’m going to pick up when I have some disposable income again and more room in my tea cupboard.
Flavors: Cranberry, Hibiscus, Sour
