51 Tasting Notes

February’s sample of the month. This isn’t one of my favorites from red leaf. It tastes similar to blueberries, which is nice, but the aftertaste is more like cough syrup. I should also say that I’m not usually a fan of fruit teas, though. I’m not going to rate it for that reason. :)

This is the last of the three samples I sampled from Yezi. Love it! It is floral and sightly nutty. And the finish I can only describe as…buttery. I am on my second steep and it hasn’t lost any flavor.

This was my second of three samples requested from Yezi recently. I’m not so experienced with white teas, and so I steeped the first cup a bit too long. The resteep was better. Delicate, subtle, slightly floral and sweet.

Quite easily the best jasmine tea I’ve had! There is no astringency whatsoever and the jasmine is so floral and smooth. This is one of three samples I requested from Yezi. I didn’t know what to expect but I’m quite pleased. The packaging is very cute yet simplistic, and I enjoyed the little hand written note and happy face from the owner. :) Thank you!

This was January’s free sample of the month. All of Red Leaf’s matchas I have tried have been amazing and this is no different. If you like French vanilla ice cream this one’s for you! I made this one in plain cold almond milk.

Preparation
140 °F / 60 °C

I feel like I’m drinking blueberry juice!! With maybe a slight tang of the cream cheese flavor. Excellent! I only ordered one of each of the new SBT flavors on black friday and this one is on my reorder list.

drank SBT: Lime Cola by 52teas

Apologies for the extra brief tasting note. I’m a woman of few words. This is so cola-y that I can practically taste the carbonation. And the lime adds an extra layer of flavor, very zesty.:)

Potent stuff! The first time I tried this I used way too much rooibos for the amount of water, so here’s my second go.

The coconut is definitely there, but not as strongly as I had imagined. It smooths out the strong woodsy rooibos base for sure. Coconut cream pie isn’t the first thing that comes to mind while drinking it, but I must say it isn’t too shabby. Resteep time.
