201 Tasting Notes
This tea really is dreamy! Caramel corn meets green tea in a wonderful carnival version of genmaicha. If I had to rename this tea, I would call it creamy caramel toasty popcorn.
Big thanks to Sophie and Laurent at Nina’s for this sample. I will definitely be purchasing this when I have a little extra $$ for tea. It will be a dessert tea staple in my cabinet.
Update: The cooler the tea gets the more caramel I taste. I bet this would be awesome iced. I MUST BUY THIS TEA!!! My cabinet demands this as a staple NOW!!
So excited to have caught the flash special at Whistling Kettle on this last week. I only have about enough for 2 more cups. Need to refill :) My love of green tea has grown with this, hojicha and genmaicha. All 3 will always be in my tea cupboard!
Tomorrow, I’m going to my favorite little tea spot for a free class on making your own tea journal. So cool! http://www.facebook.com/events/334497076655599/
I love this tart oolong. For my Happy365 photo today, I made a photo sheet of my tea making process.
This tea is beautiful as the leaves expand and unfurl in my Teaze Infuser. It was fun to put this photo sheet together.
This is one of the most beautiful teas I’ve tasted. The dry leaves and flowers are just lovely.
This is the strongest coconut flavored tea I’ve tasted. It has almost a buttery feel on my tongue. Loving it :)
I think it would make an excellent latte or iced tea.
Update: Made a foamy tea latte with second steeping. Yum!
2nd steep is so much better than first. It has an almost honey like flavor. I still think it is a great combo of English Breakfast and Oolong :)
This tea is such a comfort after a busy week. I love how smooth and vanilla-caramely it is. A delicious dessert before bed. An early bedtime is called for this evening.
New favorite peppermint/clove winter kind of tea. I love puerh and this blend is wonderfully spicy and earthy.
I’ve tried different temps and times but this tea still doesn’t do it for me. I think I’ll pass it on to a friend. She might have better luck.
A delicious staple for a busy afternoon.
