4846 Tasting Notes
This is one that I hesitated trying until now… because, well, it’s Pu-Erh, and that’s my typical response to Pu-Erh. Hesitation. Apprehension. FEAR! Mostly because I am still “acquiring” my taste for it.
This one is actually quite good (for a Pu-Erh). The earthy aroma and flavor are not as strong as in many of the Pu-Erh teas that I’ve tried, and it has a very pleasant body and sweetness to it.
I’m off to write a review for this one.
Delicious. Rich, smooth, malty with a lovely dark caramel-like undertone. I like this with just a drizzle of agave nectar to bring out those caramel undertones even more. I am contemplating adding some chocolate cream to this… not required for enjoyment of course, but, everything is better with a little chocolate!
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.
