734 Tasting Notes
The lovely Miss Roswell Strange sent me an awesome surprise Halloween card that included a sample of this tea.
I like this one. It’s a nice pumpkin spice tea. Mild pumpkin, mild spice but this seems well balanced to me. It’s a nice fall tea that I’m enjoying today.
Thanks so much Roswell for the surprise.
This is another “out of my comfort zone” teal courtesy of yyz. Thank you!!! Always interested in learning about new teas.
This is unlike any Darjeeling I’ve tried before. Zero astringency, nothing offensive here…
This has quite a bit of the “up your nose white wine” notes. It’s not floral, quite fruity, really smooth. This is a tea that could interest me in looking at more Darjeeling……
Sorry all, I haven’t been around much lately. Missing everyone!!! Between the turmoil in my life and the issues with steepster – I haven’t been posting much.
I’m a huge black tea fan, but I’m a bit snobbish about it. I like China blacks, but in truth I’ve only tried a few of the others and haven’t really explored them. I was quite excited when yyz sent me a care package with teas outside my comfort zone. Thank you so much.
In that package was this one. What do I know about Ceylon? Not much so I don’t really have a point of reference.
This tea brews up a beautiful copper red color. It seems light, with lots of high notes, and a bit fruity. This will not lure me away from my beloved China blacks, but it wasn’t offensive either. Really happy to have tried it.
Drinking this cold steeped tonight. It’s ok, it’s good. The peach flavor is nice, not fake and candy – I just wish there was a little more of it. The white base is fine, present but not in the way. This is a decent peach white tea. I have a LOT of peach teas in my house and this one is good but not my favorite.
On that note, drinking the last of this puts my cupboard officially at 299. Goodbye 300s, nice to know you, but don’t ever want this much tea in my house again. Operation cupboard reduction continues…..
It’s been hot here for the last couple of weeks and I haven’t been drinking much hot tea. It was significantly cooler today, and I drank a BUNCH of hot teas.
I feel like I’ve been writing negative or just ok tasting notes all day. Wanted to end the day with something GOOD.
This is beyond good – this is a great tea. It’s beautiful to look at and it’s beautiful to drink. There are tons of tasting notes about it, so I’m not going to go into long boring details. It’s just a great sweet potato, grainy style black tea.
This makes me happy tonight. :))
