4835 Tasting Notes
OK… I couldn’t wait to try another of the trio of matcha teas from 52Teas.
I like this one a lot. The apple flavor sort of melds in with the flavor of the matcha to make it an almost a seamless flavor. This doesn’t taste like apple flavored matcha… it tastes like “apple matcha” – if that makes sense.
I like it a lot. I think the next time I have some, I might try it with a little cinnamon and nutmeg and have my own version of apple pie matcha.
Finishing off the last of the sample I have of this…
I must say that I REALLY like this tea. I don’t think I gave it enough credit yesterday when I first tasted it and I’m going to increase the numeric rating a bit because it really deserves it.
The Earl Grey here (or should I say, bergamot?) is much more subtle than one might expect from an Earl Grey tea, but that is alright, because where it lacks in the bergamot it more than makes up for with the very unique finishing note. It is creamy, sweet, and I don’t know how else to describe it… it tastes so good.
This tea is quite a treat for me.
I won these in the Art Contest that AmazonV held – thanks AmazonV!
Having tried (and loved) something similar from Teavana, I was very curious about these pearls. Alas, since I don’t have the pearls from Teavana anymore … I can’t do a side by side.
Anyway… this is nice. There is a slight smokiness to it but I don’t find it off-putting, perhaps because it’s paired so nicely with the chewy, bake-y flavor of it. And the malty note is quite pleasing.
Starting my day with another random selection from my collection of Zoomdweebies tea.
This is pretty good. I can taste both the chocolate and the strawberry although I must admit that I wish the flavors were stronger here… but then, if a little chocolate is good, a lot of chocolate is better.
It’s nice though. Pleasantly sweet. A nice tea to wake up to.
The aroma of the dry leaf is very lovely and somewhat difficult for me to find the words to describe it. I can smell hints of flower and fruit, as well as a caramel-y note and a very subtle earthy character.
The more I drink this tea the more I love it.
I just got finished writing up my review for this tea – it will be published on the SororiTEA Sisters blog on the 19th of August!
This is a very unusual Earl Grey. The finish is very different… it does have a creamy-ish finish, slightly sweet with just a hint of citrus.
This … kind of tastes like an Earl Grey creamsicle – made with bergamot oranges.
It’s nice. I’m enjoying this unusual twist on Earl Grey! It is also quite nice as it cools… this would be very nice and refreshing as an iced tea.
I love Genmaicha so when I received this sample I was very happy to try it.
This is a slightly different tasting Genmaicha than some others that I’ve tried. The tea tastes different – but not in a bad way, in a very, very good way! I can definitely tell that I’m tasting a sencha rather than a bancha – I can taste the fresh, bittersweet flavor of the sencha. This tastes a little less “roasty-toasty” (bancha has a natural sort of toasted flavor to it, in my opinion) than a typical Genmaicha, and a little more … complex.
The delicate bitter notes add a unique interest to this tea – it isn’t a strong or distasteful bitterness. I would describe it more as a semi-sweet taste rather than a BITTER taste… if that makes sense.
I really like this Genmaicha… a LOT!
I felt like I needed the energy boost that I get from Yerba Mate today – so I reached for some Chai from Mate Factor.
I really like this Chai – the Mate makes for a deliciously different chai. I went latte today, and it’s rich, smooth, creamy, spiced just right – DELICIOUS!
