253 Tasting Notes

This is very yummy!! I am actually full of tea and had some leftover hot water to use up so I threw this teabag into a cup. I am still drinking it even though I’m somewhat water logged, lol,,,,it is that tasty!
It tastes like those old Lipton noodle soups in a box (do they still have that? probably) that I would have as a kid on a snow day.
The box says that this mix contains 6mg of sodium so this is definitely a lovely little starter for a quick soup that you could add spinach or other easily heated veggies to.

Flavors: Broth, Fennel, Salt

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Spring Downy Pearls by Steepster

Dry leaf are nicely rolled balls of white tea that have a surprisingly salty aroma.
Smells a bit like sheng and produces a fairly clear liquor,,there are the little fuzzies from the tea leaves floating in there and a champagne color to the liquid.
The tea is not very sweet and it has a bitter note that is not unpleasant, like bitter melon.
It is pretty smooth and no astringency but I have had a much better example of this type tea and found that this one was a bit one-note. No sweet, no fruit, cream or any other flavors but the bitter melon so I didn’t like the lack of complexity or balance.

Dry leaf smells so woody and soil-like. I am not a big fan of shou :( so this is not to my taste.
The liquor is fairly clear and it’s pretty smooth. If I was ever going to drink shou, this would be pretty good for that type of tea. It is just a type that I really don’t care for so I am not a good judge of it.
It tastes like sweet wood growing out of the ground.

The dry rooibos mix is very fragrant,,smells like vanilla marshmallow treat.
Liquor is red colored and has that rooibos scent and flavor. It is sweet with vanilla notes and a touch of honey. It’s very sweet and rooibos tasting.
If you like rooibos, you would like this. I don’t really care for rooibos so I am not a good judge of it.

drank White Jasmine by Steepster
253 tasting notes

Dry leaf is really nice smelling, just like jasmine growing in your garden. The tea is also very pretty, silver needle buds with bits of flower mixed in. The only thing not pretty was that it was very crushed and had lots of tiny bits and pieces instead of whole, intact buds.
Despite all the broken pieces and particles, the tea is quite clear and a nice champagne color.
I have an aversion to Jasmine tea and pretty much won’t try any of them, so I was quite surprised that this is actually kind of tasty!! It’s more white tea flavor with subtle jasmine. It has a jasmine and cream flavor.
I actually enjoyed this jasmine tea and this was the one I was dreading in the Steepster Box and didn’t want to try, lol.

I don’t generally enjoy floral teas, but jasmine can be quite nice if it’s not too powerful. :)
