719 Tasting Notes
I arrived back last night after a looong day of travel and a month away. In my travels I managed to stop at the Harney SoHo store and pick up some teas – woot! This is the first cup of tea I’ve sat down and enjoyed in over a month and I am impressed.
There’s definitely coconut with a light flavour of chocolate, nothing overwhelming in the chocolate, which is great. The tea base is great too. Overall an excellent tea that’s calming in it’s own way, or maybe that’s because I’m exhausted hah! Either way, I’m happy I picked this one up.
This is sadly my last teabag of this tea. But on the upside I’ll be home in two short weeks and the two hour drive may be worth it to pick up more of this. I shall decide then. Or maybe as I sip away at this, while still working on this paper.
This tea is amazing.
Thanks whatshesaid, and congratulations :)
This is a lovely oolong. It’s not overly strong, but very smooth and slightly vegetal. I’m not an expert by any means on oolongs, so I’m none to sure of what else to say about this one. I do prefer my Butiki Gui Fei, but this one is still quite enjoyable. I plan on resteeping this multiple times this afternoon.
Thanks Stephanie :)
This one is almost identical to David’s Coconut Oolong. Yum. I’d really have to have them side-by-side to decipher any difference. For now I’ll just enjoy this lovely cup of tea as I read article after article and write yet another paper.
On my second steep. I love oolongs for inspiration.
I enjoyed three steeps of this. How lovely.
Also, I’m trying to swap out everything I’m not loving before I’m gone for a month. Feel free to check out my swap posts and stuff in my cupboard if anyone’s interested. Thanks!
Thanks Faith for this one :)
I’m quite enjoying this tea. The cocoa is lovely and the chicory/licorice root (I’m guessing) adds a subtle almost-spiciness I wasn’t expecting. It more smells of cocoa than tastes of it. The backdrop is all peppermint. The ingredients work well together. The tea has a strong flavour, yet not one single ingredient overwhelms the rest.
This is one I’d consider having around to bring to work/school since it’s teabags and easier.
The resteep this morning is still quite flavourful. Yum.
Holy delicious! Wow. It must be the sugar and caramel. This could satisfy a sweet craving in one sip.
I followed the directions for 1 tbsp. of matcha, 1 cups of milk, and a few ice cubes blended. Amazing! I may have to order this. And the Coconut MATHCAccino, since I adore coconut.
I knew there was a reason I wanted to try this tea. It is so delicious. All the black teas I’ve had today have been near perfection. What an excellent tea day!
This has a lovely black base with a mixture of flavours that complement each other nicely. Like a cinnamon bun without the overwhelming sweetness – pretty much exactly like brioche. Yum!
I may have to look into ordering from American Tea Room.
Thanks jessiwrites :)
