205 Tasting Notes
Green tea is growing on me. This was one of the 6 tea samples I received from the Whistling Kettle today.
When I sip it it tastes very creamy and then leaves with a grassy green tea flavor. The blueberry notes in it are wonderful. I really like how complementary all these flavors are together. Yum!! 0 calorie pie for a new year resolution.
Absolutely excited to receive this in the mail today. The Whistling Kettle had it in a flash sale the other day on this and I picked up a bunch of samples too. Looking forward to trying them all.
I am not a tea purist. I added a bit of milk and sugar to this delicious dessert tea after noticing it was a bit bitter. I think a 4 minute steep was a bit too much for the delicate flavors. There is an interesting play with floral and maple notes. I like it. Looking forward to my next cup.
Lemon Heaven is what this tea should be named. It’s a perfectly smooth and delicious rooibos. It reminds me of Adagio’s Lemon Cloud. It also reminds me of the amazing lemon meringue pie my grandmother used to make. WOW! Definitely a dessert tea worth trying. YUM! It made my Flikr Happy365 photo for the day. A bright tea for a dreary winter’s day.
Happy Hunger Ga…wait, I mean Happy New Year!
Some mornings I wake up knowing exactly which tea I’m going to make and some mornings I can’t decide. This morning, I thought I’d kick of the new year with the tea everyone on Steepster seems to adore. I picked up a sample of this when Verdant had their free shipping last week.
At first infusion, I’m tasting a smooth almost wheat-like flavor. It leaves a buttery feel on my tongue. Sadly, I’m not getting all the other notes Verdant lists on their site. We’ll see what the next couple infusions bring. Overall a good black tea to with which to start the year :) And may the odds be ever in your favor.
Update: Second infusion tastes much like the first. Going to set the leaves aside for later and brew up a different tea for now.
