90 Tasting Notes
Today is one of those days I am hurting so badly, I am unable to brew some tea.
Thank God for tea bags! It is just that kind of day.
This tea is starting to give a smile to my morning :-)
I have a terrible sinus infection which is giving my chronic pain a run for the money.
Back to this tea, I have previously done a legit tasting note on this tea,
But I just had to say, I REALLY like this tea…
I think I like it more each time I drink it.
This tea reminds me of when myself and my late husband were married in Jamaica…
with the traditional wedding breakfast.
This is a sweet morning pick me up.
After a quick rinse, I am drinking steeps 1-3 together (steeped 5 seconds each time)
The aroma to me is a bit muddy with an uncooked sourdough bread flavor.
The taste is complex, unbelievable, and I am blown away by the flavor.
This is woody, deeply earthy and smokey…my first time to try a smokey flavored tea…
it is all this, but with the sweetness of sourdough cookies.
Drinking with 1 packet Pyure Stevia (best stevia, no aftertaste)
(NEWBIE in the world of Pu-ehr,please forgive if my tasting notes are not the most sophisticated.)
Slightly dry aftertaste, but so0oO worth it :-)
This tea is quite lovely.
As an Earl Grey fan, I could say the taste of Bergamot was lacking, but only slightly…
and to be perfectly honest, it perfectly suits this tea.
You can taste the perfectly balanced Bergamot & Saffron (I love BOTH)…
The Frankincense is ever so subtle, but definitely there both in taste and in the perfume
of this tea. I am finding I am loving this tea more at room temperature.
I might add, it only takes one packet of Truvia to sweeten the entire pot.
This tea leaves the lingering feel of silk on your palate…mmmm….
You MUST try this tea.
The more I drink, the more I want…not one tinge of bitterness or astringency.
What a smooth, creamy, oh so lovely tea.
I love every element of this tea~
saffron, cedarwood, frankincense,jasmine, goji berry,bergamot~
what a lovely balancing act performed within this one tea.
This feels like Christmas, and my silly mind can imagine
the three kings who traveled to see baby Jesus sipping THIS tea.
I just needed to stop in and give the “number” a nod and a boost.
I had this again at my Auntie’s for Thanksgiving.
I first had given it a lower rating based on the fact the resteep is not really drinkable.
BUT~ I TRULY love this tea!
I am now out of the samples my Auntie gave me, and I must purchase some.
Wondering how this will taste (iced) come Summer?
