3 Tasting Notes

2036 tasting notes

Hi everyone! We just got back from Italy last night. We had a wonderful time! It was very hot there so mostly I drank cold water (frizzante), an occasional beer, or a glass of prosecco, pinot gregio or chianti with dinner. I developed a taste for espresso, which didn’t happen the last time I went to Italy, and which I hadn’t thought possible. I started the morning with an American coffee with latte, a cappuccino or espresso. Sometimes I had one of those with lunch or dinner as well. I needed it to keep up with my self-imposed schedule. There was so much to see and so little time.

I did have a “tea” one night with my tartufo, a lemon ginger herbal concoction that was quite lovely.

But anyway, I’m back and resuming the project of working my way through my white teas. This is a never opened sample I’ve had for a while, as are most of my samples these days.

I steeped at the Breville setting for white tea, but I have enough to try it a couple of different ways, too. The package says steep at 185 for 2 minutes. That sounds like a recipe for not tasting anything to me, but I’m willing to try it. I am also planning to try it at the parameters for the Ancient Moonlight and see what that does.

At the temp I used, I got a clear golden-yellow liquor, but not much in the way of distinguishing flavor. It’s possible this is because I had some flavored black tea leaves left in the Breville basket while I was gone and mostly what I smell and taste is something I can’t be sure isn’t partly that other tea.

For my second tea this morning, I think I’m going to try this one again at the settings recommended on the package and see what I get.

Welcome back!

Italy! How wonderful! Where and what and tell us more, please. Let us travel vicariously through you.


Rome, Florence (with side trips to Pisa and three of the five Cinque Terre towns), Maranello for the Ferrari museum (for No. 2), Venice, Merano for the Lamborghini museum (also for No. 2), Bellagio and Milan. Bellagio is my new favorite place in the world. I would live there in a heartbeat!


Ah! My happiness is now complete. I have been to Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan. The others are a mystery to me. I will look up Bellagio. Thank you for sharing your experience.
