Light, mellow, meh.
26 Tasting Notes
Thought I’d start back to the “cuppa before bed” with the matcha in my fridge. It’s old enough that I doubt it’s as potent as it should be, but this did okay, considering I got the water too hot. It’s definitely a bit bitter tonight, but my own fault. But the tin is nearly done, and I have an un-labeled container of more old matcha in the fridge that I think I’ll just use for matcha lattes, etc. I’ll go order some new, fresh matcha tomorrow.
Hooray for bold, wild tea on a chaotic day!
This tea is rich, bold, and has that sort of “yeasty” note under the lighter, more pervasive muscatel flavor. Some days I like it, other days, not so much…it’s a mood thing with this tea. Some days (like today), it’s exactly what I want.
It’s been cold and rainy for the last two days…making Lapsang the perfect compliment to the weather.
I do adore this tea – smoky, smooth and sweet. It’s my rainy-day tea, and that describes today perfectly.
Something sweet and light for this afternoon…a harbinger of spring? Perhaps…
Rich, bold, smooth, peppery and a little smokey – this is just the perfect example of a damn fine Yunnan tea. I am enjoying it immensely. Serious yumminess.
Hoping this will perk me up for the afternoon…
Thought I’d try this for my afternoon cuppa – it’s a bit drying, but very smooth and rich. I’m quite enjoying it.
Comfort tea today…
It’s not even cold, snowy or rainy today (which is when I drink this most often)…just felt like something smokey. Yum.
A little chocolate pick-me-up for the afternoon…
I wasn’t sure where to put the “steep time”, since this tea isn’t steeped. Love Matcha for that late evening “kick” when I’m writing…so healthy too! I mix it up “thick style” – like a bold “fresh” flavor.
Hubby and I have been drinking a sample of this I got – it’s a fabulous blend, and great before bed. Seems to be helping ward off a cold for hubby too (along with goji berries…).
I can always count on A&D for spectacular tea…and this is no exception. Smooth, bold but not too bold, naturally sweet, with a little cocoa/caramel taste, it’s just a superb keemun all the way around. Perfect for waking up this morning.
It’s warmer out today (41!), but I’m drinking this anyway. Smooth, smoky, and a discussion piece at the office (because everything smells like smoke). :-)
If I had to pick just one absolute favorite flavored tea – this is it. I miss it the most when I run out, and long for it until I have more.
This is my kind of chocolate and roses. There’s a kick of peppery flavor too that I find quite lovely. :-)
This tea is my chocolate. :-)
I was in the mood for something sweet and light this afternoon, and glad to have this one on the shelf. I like it, it’s very smooth and mellow, but refreshing at the same time.
I was in the mood for something fresh and citrus-y this morning, and this fits the bill nicely. The base is a lovely tea without the harsh qualities often used in flavored blends, and the peels give it just the perfect amount of sweet-tart sensation and aroma. Very nice blend.
I’m pretty picky about flavored teas, but this one is pretty good. The base tea isn’t terribly interesting (probably a Ceylon tea, which I’m never fond of), but such is the reality of many flavored teas. I drink this straight, no milk or sugar, and enjoy it for the sweet almond cookie flavor (which is light, but rather tasty).
I like this – it’s a very smooth and filling blend that I appreciate in the afternoon to keep the munchies away. I drink it straight up, and quite enjoy the nutty caramel-like flavor.
