90 Tasting Notes

drank Imperial Keemun by Steepster
90 tasting notes

I like the smoky, woody, earthy taste…
I wish there had been a little more to the package;
I would liked to have over leafed it a bit.
A hint of cacao which would be enhanced by a Padron Londres…
“Flowery” got me to wishin’ ;-)

drank Earl of Anxi by Verdant Tea
90 tasting notes

Mmm…I have enjoyed one pot of this today and about to do a re-steep
and enjoy a second pot. I frequently brew a pot of tea to enjoy rather than by the cup.
This tea is so lovely… Hints of citrus, flowers, and yet a bit woody…
such a perfect blend….

Preparation
2 tsp 14 OZ / 400 ML

Yanxin’s puer, ginger, elderberry, licorice root, etc. ~ the elderberry and licorice root are among my favorite elements as well as the puer. The dry version smells a bit perfumey?
, but the steeped tea is not at all perfumey and rather is rich and decadent.
I would definitely recommend this as well as order again. Thanks Verdant, for another
fabulous creation…This blend is AMAZING!

A nice, bold cuppa
I spiked it with a bit of honey…
talk about Heaven…
wonderful way to start the day

CelebriTEA

This one stands up well for a solid re-steep
(2nd steep is great!)
Thanks Harney & Sons…
I love that you supply quality bagged teas…

drank L'Abricot by Fauchon
90 tasting notes

This smells as divine dry as it tastes brewed.
A subtle apricot without added peach.
The black base is perfect; without any detected astringency.
It is lovely sweetened with a bit of stevia.
I would not sweeten with honey as I am afraid it would
upset the delicate balance…jmho…
Thank you, Miss B, I appreciate your generosity.
This tea is beautiful ♡

drank Passion by Tazo
90 tasting notes

Sooo…Tazo calls this an exuberant herbal infusion and I AGREE
A little tart,but I just LOVE the hibiscus & orange peel …
The passionfruit is understated but contributes to a successful YUM!
I dont care so much for a second infusion and prefer a new bag evry time
for that fresh sweet/tart… that I fall in love with each sip
I am glad there are some wonderful bagged teas out there
for times like now when I am stuck in the hospital…

♡Love this Tea♡
My favorite from Steepster Select.
Nicely floral,but pleasantly sweet with just a touch of stevia.
With the second steeping I get a bit of fruitiness and honestly
I steeped this about 3 times…I simply enjoyed it all throughout the day.

Preparation
2 tsp 14 OZ / 400 ML

drank Nutmeg Cream by Butiki Teas
90 tasting notes

Not posting a number…I accidently over steeped it and it was God awful.
Can anyone offer me their best steeping instructions for this?
Thanks a bunch!

Suziqzer

I’m not familiar with that one yet, so I can’t help you but the name sounds enticing. I hope you can find it’s sweet spot !

CelebriTEA

Thanks Suzi…I love Nutmeg…I am thinking I need to steep it shorter…
Perhaps add a little honey…? Hopefully, I can turn it around…

Verdant’s review is spot on.
I love bergamot (here grapefruit & orange)
I have never been big on chocolate in tea, but lately
a couple have really turned my head….
This being one of them ;-D
Congrat’s Verdant…this one is worthy of Celebration!
Great for a bubble bath, reading a book by the fire or
Or just plain relaxing in your favorite cuddle nook~
This lovely tea makes dealing with these terrible low outside temps bearable ♡
