3858 Tasting Notes
I’m sipping on this tonight. Tasty! Here is my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2010/12/12/hazelnut-truffle-from-tea-forte/
This is a remarkable Sencha – very full-flavored … brothy! Very smooth and vegetative. Grassy … like a savory grassy flavor with hints of sweet. Not a bitter savory, although there are some bitter notes in there, but it is more of a well-rounded savory kind of experience for the palate. Very nice.
The final of the three teas from the December Steepster Select Box. A very good Houjicha, I’ve tried a couple of the Houjicha teas from Obubu but this is my first experience with the smoky roast. I am not usually fond of strong smoky flavors, but it works very well with the roasty toasty flavor of the houjicha, and I am enjoying this quite a bit. The smokiness really stands out.
This is a really pleasant Yunnan. A good one for those who might find other Yunnan teas to be a tad too smoky or peppery, this one is more of a mellow, easy-going kind of Yunnan. It does have smoky and peppery notes, but, they aren’t as pronounced with this cup.
I like this. It is a more seamless kind of Yunnan, with the qualities I’ve come to expect from Yunnan but delivered in a smoother way. Nice.
Having a cup of this today, made it latte, and added some maple syrup to sweeten it instead of honey. Yummy.
I’m finishing off the last of this tonight as I curl up and watch some TV with my hubby. YUM!

Yellow tea is my favorite, so I am always excited to try one I haven’t yet tasted. Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sharing this Yellow with me.
It has a delicate, sweet flavor with a hint of roasted nut in the background. It has a very supple quality to it – smooth and silky. A vegetative note in mid-sip, very slight but there, tasting slightly of steamed bitter greens with a touch of butter on it.
A very pleasant cup … and I’m off to write a review about it!
I brewed this in my Breville according to the suggested parameters on the package (or as close as I could achieve since the temperature variables on the Breville are at 5 degree intervals): 190 degrees F for 1.5 minutes.
Delicious. Very pale in color (beautiful!) and such a delicate yet incredible flavor. Smooth, creamy, with notes of grass and hay and flower. Such a wonderful white tea.
Very nice! Sweet, with creamy notes, and a nice tangy flavor too. Reminds me a bit of lemon meringue pie. The rooibos doesn’t become an overwhelming flavor here, instead, it compliments the fruit flavors quite nicely.
Delightful! Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea. Its one of the nicest Guricha teas I’ve tasted. It tastes so sweet and mild and smooth. An earthy taste to it, but not too strong, I would classify the earthiness as more of a vegetative earthiness. It has a pleasant nutty flavor to it too.
A very nice tea indeed.
