353 Tasting Notes
I am loving my new soy matcha lattes! I have four matchas in my cupboard and they are all amazing with plain soy milk. I can’t get enough!
On our drive back from brunch I noticed all the leaves on the ground. Autumn is my second favourite season after summer, and as much as I hate to admit it, the Pumpkin Pie matcha was a good fit for this afternoon.
I had this as a soy latte this morning. I haven’t had matcha in months and months, gah! I’m also trying hard to acquire a taste for soy milk, since regular milk has been hard on my stomach the last few months :(
This matcha soy latte was a success on all fronts. This is my least favourite matcha in my cupboard, albeit still yummy, and combined with the soy milk it made for a delicious drink.
I got to enjoy this whilst lazing on the couch reading some fan fiction. This is important because I work every Saturday, and this is one of the very few I’ve taken off for my friends wedding, and also because my fiance is working today. I have the house to myself for a few hours, on a Saturday – yay!
Thanks Veronica for sending some of this my way.
This tea is great! The strawberry and cream flavour is really there – it’s definitely best after it’s cooled for a bit though. I’ll enjoy the rest of my sample for sure.
This tea is perfection. In every sense of the word.
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.
Thanks Kittena :)
The black base here was nicer than other 52Teas I’ve had. The banana was a bit too fake for my liking, though it certainly wasn’t bad. I could taste both the banana and cinnamon clearly. I’m just steeping for a second round now.
