205 Tasting Notes
Joined in the Saturday Sample Sipdown suggested by Madeline Alyce on the discussion boards. This is sipdown #1.
The more teas I try, they more discerning I am about flavors I like. This one is a bit of a let down. It probably would be great as a tea latte with milk and sugar, but by itself, it falls flat.
My Den’s Tea green tea sampler arrived yesterday!! This is the first tea I’ve tried. I chose it to start because I love genmaicha.
It’s pretty good. Not as toasty as I was hoping and definitely more green tea flavor than the other 2 genmaichas I’ve tried. I’m going to brew another pot and see how it goes. I think I would prefer the regular genmaicha without the matcha. Overall, this is a good tea, but not my fav.
This is an amazing malty and rich black tea. I love how smooth it is. It’s also very convenient because it’s in a sachet. I took it to my small group gathering this evening and steeped it 3 times. All three were absolutely delicious. Gonna try for a 4th in the morning :) Thank you so much for sharing this LiberTEAS!
101, here we come :)
This tea is excellent and made up for the dud of a tea I had made before it. Speaking of which, anyone want 2 or so ounces of Buckingham Palace Garden Party?? It may be the first tea that I dump in a trashcan.
Back to this wonderful oolong. This is an emergency purse tea that I carry just in case I need a tea while I’m out. YUM!
It’s me with a new profile picture. My mom and I spent the day enjoying lunch at the Dragonfly Artisan Tea Cottage in Sylvania and shopping. It was lovely.
My mom had me choose the tea today because she says I’m the tea expert :) I chose this because my mom loves fruit teas. It is wonderfully fruity and sweet on its own. I’m learning to enjoy fruit teas more. If you’re ever in the Toledo area, the Dragonfly is the place to go!!
