570 Tasting Notes
I am really enjoying this one. I was a bit concerned that it wouldn’t be as flavourful as I’d hoped, but it is. Yay!
I believe this is delicate, because it came as a sample size envelope, and I’m finding it quite flavourful. That sift vanilla I’m accustomed to. I would buy this one for my own cupboard.
I threw both this and French Vanilla matcha in the fridge with milk this morning to sit all day. Now it’s time to compare.
Upon first sip, the vanilla is here with a hint of, is that cinnamon? It’s very subtle, but there is something that isn’t just pure vanilla. Or maybe that’s what Madagascar vanilla is? It doesn’t seem to be cinnamon exactly, but I can’t figure it out. Not nutmeg either, since I generally do not like nutmeg.
I just checked the French Vanilla, and it’s definitely only in the Madagascar. Fascinating.
I would say this one is tasty, but I don’t really need it in my life. I’ve drank half the jar and only one sip of the French Vanilla, but I am preferring the FV.
Thanks for sharing both these awesome matchas Cavovorax! Also, is this one delicate?
Normally I would reach for Laoshan Black or Cream Irish Breakfast for the morning, but this morning this was calling out to me. Maybe it’s because I’m starting to get more excited about leaving now that I’ve finished all but one presentation and wrote my exam yesterday.
I can’t get over how delightful this tea is. The raspberry creaminess is great. The scent is so bold and tart, it just screams summer. And it’s a black tea! My favourite. The more I sip away, the more this reminds me of a hot raspberry lemonade. Is there lemon here? I think it’s the raspberry tartness tricking me. Regardless, I love it. Thanks so much for sharing Cavovorax!
I have a feeling April will be an expensive tea month. Rivertea is up, as well as Butiki, and I’m running low on LB.
Also, I’ve taken to only bringing water to school because my water intake was really slacking, so now it’s back on the rise. However, it is such a pain with back to back classes, having to use the washroom between every single class. My kidneys seem to have excelled in filtering as of late because I can’t even make it through an 80-minute lecture without feeling like I’m going to burst. But I need the water! Le sigh.
It looks like I’m the odd one out here but this one isn’t for me. Inspired by Fjellrev, I mixed it with plain yogurt, but it has a bizarre perfume flavour happening. I can’t quite put my finger on where I know the perfume from – but I do know it from somewhere. The only problem is, I would have to take another bite in order to find out. The scent was the same, so I don’t think I’ll give it a go in milk.
Thanks MirandaGou for the sample! It’s always awesome to be able to try different matchas, even if they don’t work out.
Also, I searched specifically for “Cranberry Matcha” and only 52Teas came up. I went to enter it into the database and it gave me the message: this tea is already entered, find it here. Uhh, why didn’t you just show me when I searched it? Hmm.
This is another great vanilla black. Angrboda knows her vanilla blacks. The vanilla here is more mellow, but still apparent and the base complements nicely. Not nearly as intense as Fru P, but still lovely.
I could see this being a good late night tea. It’s comforting in a vanilla way. Perhaps this one is more accessible than Fru P?
It is truly delightful when raspberries in tea are done so well. This one is awesome! The scent wafting from the cup seemed very tart, and I was slightly wary of trying it, but it turned out to be quite tasty.
The coconut seems to be coming through in creaminess, and apparently what I thought were white chocolate chips were actually meringue hats. Thank goodness I read over that haha. Also, the description about sandy beaches and tanned skin is so fitting right now!
Thanks Cavovorax! What an exciting evening of tea tasting.
This smells divine. Hehe.
The scent is ever so much stronger than the flavour, but the flavour is still tasty. The nougat goodness is great. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. Sweet in a natural way. It seems even more flavour comes out as it cools.
I’ve now had two Bayswater teas and I really enjoyed both of them. I’m quite excited to visit Vancouver. I didn’t even have to Google their address because it was on the tea envelope.
Thanks Cavovorax for sharing!
P.S. I was packing up all my beach stuff and realized my epipen is expired. Agh! Thank goodness the pharmacy already had refills on file. Phew.
Sipdown of this great sample from keychange this morning.
Even as it cools, it seems to get better and better. I’m intrigued now. I plan on trying every first flush Darjeeling from Butiki. The hay flavour in teas seems to get me. Once I have it, I must always have it. White Rhino had the same effect with the hay quality.
P.S. My non-tea drinking friend sent me this last night. I thought it was pretty funny. http://s770.photobucket.com/user/courtneyns/media/Steepster/tea_zps66db2496.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0
I am so close to a sipdown here, but I must find a way to get more. I love this tea, however infrequently I drink it. It’s just comforting in a delicious, bready way.
I ordered 3 oz. last time, but I think 2 oz. may be a safer bet this time around. It’s lost a wee bit of flavour because it takes me an age to drink.
Burn baby, burn. This is
I’ve already added it to my Amazon cart. I couldn’t believe the whole package was for 6-8 oz. of water. I used 15oz. and it is strong. Delicious, yes, but strong. It was also awesome to just watch all the crystals dissolve instantly upon my pouring boiling water in. Thanks OMGsrsly!
