37 Tasting Notes
So I ordered this as a sample, but since DT didn’t have enough to send me a full sample (they sent me an additional full sample for free), I only have a bit of this. I am really enjoying this tea. It’s creamy and buttery, and I wish I had more!! Hopefully I can get a few more steeps out of this.
This is my second time trying this tea; I just got it last week. I am really enjoying this blend. The strawberry flavor is great, and there is a hint of spice and a taste resembling pie crust/creaminess. This will go in rotation with Lemon Chiffon by DT for my nighttime caffeine-free tea. :)
So I had this the other day….I’ve never been a huge fan of strong florals, but I had never had jasmine tea before and was open to trying it. However, maybe I overleafed because this was too floral for me. I can see how others find this tea amazing though.
I love this tea. The scent of the dry leaves is the most amazing blueberry bakery scent ever. Steeped, I get a creamy blueberry on a nice black base. I’m happy I have a whole bag of this – I just hope this gets reblended at some point.
I finally broke into my sample of this tea tonight. I can totally see what the hype is about with this tea. It’s malty, roasty, and dark but not too heavy. I didn’t even need sweetener with this but I wanted to treat myself with a teeny bit of brown sugar. :) Hopefully I can get a few re-steeps of this so I don’t go through my sample too quickly!
Had this again over the weekend. I have to admit that I’m hoarding my last few tea bags of this because I don’t want to buy more tea (I have enough and I’m moving in 1.5 weeks) but don’t have any other genmaichas in my cupboard. Hopefully I can sipdown some of my Della Terra samples to justify placing a Verdant order for their genmaichas….. :)
