4835 Tasting Notes
IT’S HERE! Today finally got here!
OMG I’m so excited.
And yes, I’m drinking another cup of this to celebrate!
Wanna see what I’m going to be doing? Check this out:
Tomorrow is the big day! I could use something to help me wind down! Chamomile to the rescue!
The pyramid sachet was mostly whole leaves with a little bit of dust. Not enough to result in sediment resting at the bottom of my cup.
I’m not usually a big fan of Chamomile all by itself. In blends, its ok, but, by itself, it’s usually pretty lackluster. But, this one is pretty good. I can taste a distinct apple-y note. Sweet and pleasant.
I’ve decided not to rate this one numerically, though. I like it for what it is. But I don’t generally like what it is… if that makes sense.
It’s been a little while since I brewed some of this. This is one hefty tea.
Malty and robust and just – plain – delicious! A nice caramely backdrop to it that melds nicely with the malty flavor.
I’m off to write a review about it for the Tea Review Blog!
Yes… again this morning!
Tomorrow is my class and I’m all excited about it, and drinking this tea in honor of my visit to Alberta Street to meet my favorite artist.
So, I brewed this one up slightly stronger than I did previously. Mostly just because I need to shake off the desire to go back to bed and curl up under the covers. The flavor is rich and delicious and it surprises me just how much I like this tea, given its ingredients.
I guess it just goes to show that just because I didn’t like one Lapsang Souchong, doesn’t mean I’ll dislike them all.
I received a bit of this from TeaEqualsBliss – thanks!!!
I have never tasted kawakawa before. But from what I understand (a little internet research) it has a rather peppery taste. When paired with ginger, wowza! This is one warm tea!
This is appropriately named. The ginger is very warm, the Kawakawa contributes some of that pepper taste too. It’s like a burst of pepper when the tea hits the back of the palate – but in a really good way. The lemongrass adds a little sweet-tart smoothness to it.
It’s different, but I like it.
I really like this tea. I think it deserves another star (at least one more, maybe a couple more!) so, even though it probably doesn’t count for much, Mr. Xu, I bestow upon you more stars for your fabulous tea.
(If you are wondering WHAT THE HECK I’m talking about, please read the description of this tea)
Sweet, creamy, decadent, soft, luxurious – these are all words that come to mind as I sip this tea. It’s like falling into a soft, fluffy cloud of wonderful and floating in the air on that cloud.
I am finishing up the last of my Strawberry Matcha now. Somehow… this is THE BEST chawan-full of strawberry matcha to date! As I sip this, I am sad that my pouch is empty! The strawberry is much more pronounced here, the matcha is delightful.
And now… I am even more sad that my chawan is no longer full…
