1400 Tasting Notes
I should have rinse this before drinking it – it’s very potent, although less earthy than many of the puerhs I’ve had. Less flavor than I was expecting as well. I’d normally think this was a straight puerh than a flavored one. Also, it brewed up a purplish black.
The steeping instructions here and on the website are very different than on the packaging; I’ll have to review that first next time and use those instructions instead. Leaving the rating off for now.
Funny, I usually avoid white wine and savor my reds as I find whites give me a headache. So it was only after I drank this that I read the ingredient list and discovered the reasoning behind the name (duh me!) and that there was jasmine in it. I’d say the grapes and the jasmine blend together beautifully, although this is pre-sweetened, and thus, much sweeter than I expected. I doubt I’ll seek it out again, however it was a tasty tea, and a must-try for white wine lovers.
Thanks jump62359 for sharing this so generously with me!
Hey hey, I had this earlier today! Only was able to get to it after it cooled, and I found it a bit floral for my tastes, although quite lovely for a deeper green. I think I oversteeped it however, because it was also a bit bitter at the end of the sip.
I wish I remembered more, however it was a crazy day, and I just feel like I can settle down now (at 2:54am!) Thank you Ysurella you’re incredibly kind for sharing this with me. :) I owe you!
Well, I accidentally steeped this for over 20 minutes, so… it tastes like medicine. Pills. Yea… not going to rate it, because it’s definitely user error. Bah!
Thanks though Suziqzer, this definitely has my name all over it! :) I love me some herbal tea.
Kinda, sorta surprised I had to add this Steepster. Isn’t this a novel idea, a white chai? I’d think Steepsterites would jump on it!
Anyway. I added it, because I’m drinking it, thanks to a lovely surprise gift from Suziqzer. It’s a light, creamy blend, with a kick of spice from the red peppercorns, I believe. It’s a nice blend, a bit surprising really, as I’d never considered using a white for a chai… didn’t think the tea could hold up such bold flavors. I do like it though!
