4834 Tasting Notes
I love this tea! I just wrote a full-length review for the Tea Review Blog which should publish soon.
Today, I added a pinch of salt (which I didn’t think of yesterday), and I found that this makes it taste even more like buttered popcorn. It tasted like it before, but what it needed was salt! The agave nectar makes this a sweet kettle-corn-y treat! I love this! LOVE THIS!!!
Okie dokie, well, given my penchant for unusual tea flavors (with the exception of peanut butter flavored teas… sorry, still not going for it), you know I had to order this one.
And … OMG it is so good. I added some agave nectar which make the popcorn taste more like kettle corn but that’s OK because I LOVE KETTLE CORN!
It tastes popcorn-y and buttery and the black tea is robust and a little astringent. I really like this one a lot!
Having one last cup of this before I send the rest off to my SororiTea Sister!
I love the beautiful light color of the liquor. The flavor is really nice too – the cranberry and rose are in very pleasant harmony with one another – sweetness from the rose, a hint of tart from the cranberry, and the sweet, fresh taste of green tea. So lovely!
This is a very nice Oolong – much different than I’m used to, so it’s a rather nice change of pace. I can taste notes of spice and even a hint of bitter in the sip – not an offensive type of bitterness, but a savory one that adds a nice contrast to the sweet, nutty flavor. Roasty-toasty flavor is very pleasant. I’m not getting a strong vegetative taste, but there is a nice peach-like background to it.
A very good Oolong!
Hmm… this is interesting. I like the lime in this. The hibiscus is a bit strong, but the earthy quality of the Yerba Mate does manage to cut through some of the hibiscus. I think I’d like this one better without the hibiscus (or a lighter touch of hibiscus). This is palatable for me with a drizzle of agave nectar, a bit too tart without it.
Decent, not my favorite Yerba Mate blend, but, it’s not bad.
I received my Tea Magazine from Lupicia today with a sample of this inside.
I am very pleasantly surprised by this tea. It has such a lovely champagne and strawberry scent – very strong scent! – and that carries through in the taste. I’d prefer a cup of this on New Year’s Eve rather than champagne!
Very nice indeed! I like this very much!
This tea hasn’t been added to their website yet, it is one that was offered as a bonus when I placed my order before Black Friday.
When I opened the package I was a little surprised to find that it looked like hot cocoa mix! So I emailed them to ask about how to steep it and they got back to me within an hour! (This company is one of my favorites when it comes to customer service)
This is really delicious! Smooth and spicy! Chocolate-y yummy-nummy-ness!
It is a little messy to steep because the mixture is so finely ground (well not messy to steep but messy to strain!) It requires a little patience but it’s worth it.
