201 Tasting Notes
Needed a nice strong malty tea tonight and this hit the spot! In the past, I would have added milk and sugar, but I’m loving this all on its own.
My house is a disaster and what do I do? I reorganize my tea cabinet.
My sis sent me a sample of this last week. I love fun surprise packages in the mail. This loose leaf and the sachet Green Tea with Thai Flavors are quickly becoming a staple.
I am amazed at how much my taste in tea has changed in the last few months. I really enjoy green tea so much. I never thought I liked them. Sometimes quality of tea matters.
This was in a $2 sample pack I got from the Whistling Kettle. Of the six samples they sent, 4 were green. All have been great!
This is my first sencha as far as I know. It’s crisp and grassy. Yum.
Lightly smokey and toasty. Yum! This is a great oolong for people who love genmaicha or hojicha.
Update: Second steep is even better than the first. Loving this tea.
This has been such an enjoyable tea that I’m sad to see it go. I love watching the tea leaves unfurl. So beautiful. The floral honey flavor is excellent. Oolongs really are the best.
Sipdown. I really did enjoy this tea. Sad to see it go.
Discovered I am out of milk after making this. Sad to not have a milky rooibos tonight. It is still yummy on its own.
I had to drop of a return to UPS and my favorite tea shop is right next door, so naturally I had to go in :) Just to window shop. Right. Picked up another ounce of the delicious peach oolong they carry and grabbed some of this to try. So glad I did. I purchased it loose leaf.
It’s very nice and tart with the pomegranate flavor. The oolong beautifully expanded in my Teaze. I should have taken a picture. Next time. Like the peach oolong, I really thing this would be amazing iced. I’m going to have a lot of fun this spring/summer :)
BTW, my sissy just joined Steepster!! You should follow her. Her name is Anna. She sends me tea and brings me tea when I see her. Gotta love it!!
Sipdown sadness :(
