80 Tasting Notes
Trying to backlog some today….This one I love love love. Maple is so delicious in tea. I love having this one in the evening when I am craving a sweet treat. (I have to say tea has definitely saved me some calories these days) Anyway I love Frank’s honeybush blends and this one is no exception. It is exactly what I have come to expect from him. If you let it cool just a little bit you really get the full maple longjohn flavor. Yum!
Again I just can’t bring myself to put this in boiling water. (not sure why since this is the second green I’ve noticed that Lupicia states to brew this in boiling water…) So I did my normal steeping for greens. This is pretty good. Not my favorite gemaicha with matcha, but its not bad in any way. It’s just missing something for me I am not sure what though…..
Had some of this earlier today. It says to steep in boiling water but I don’t like the idea of putting a green in boiling water. So I steeped it at a normal temp for greens. It smells really good very sweet and floral. It tastes really good. I was a little worried about how sweet it would be with the sugar that is in it, but it wasn’t bad at all. A very nice green tea.
I got this in my New Year’s Happy bag. Which was a really awesome deal. Now I have to work my way through trying the different teas. So this one I am having after lunch since I was craving something sweet. So I was good and steeped this instead of having a cookie. Dry it smells like sweetened pineapple and coconut. Steeped it is delicious. Very buttery creamy flavor with just a hint of pineapple. I really like that you can taste the oolong more than the flavoring. Liking this one a lot. Yummy!
I love green tea. I also love cherry almond anything. So this was an instant buy for me when Frank put it up. Such a delicious blend. Sweet with a touch of smokiness from the gunpowder tea. Which helps to tame the cherry so it wasn’t too overpowering. Really yummy!
