1116 Tasting Notes
Ah phooey, I oversteeped this slightly, and went with the wrong steeping temperature. The bag says 185F, I should have done my normal 175F. It’s still lovely, just a bit astrigent, when it’s normally buttery, fruity and delicious.
An interesting tea, that surprised me a bit. Dry orange, some spice, almost like the Bengal Spice I used to adore, with extra added orange in there. I doubt I’ll buy any, however it’s a really nice cup that I’m enjoying this evening!
Thanks to KittyLovesTea for sharing this cup with me!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange Zest
Perhaps I steeped this a bit too long, because I’m getting little of it. I can tell it’s a green, I can kinda taste coconut in it, however there’s zero chai anything. It actually tasted a lot like the Marani I just had, so much so that I had to look for a second to make sure.. maybe I got them mixed up? No, I doubt it .
Floral pineapple? That’s what I get from this brew – more pineapple than floral, and only as it cooled a bit. When it was still just freshly steeped, I got little of anything out of it. Now… it’s pineapple, then floral, then almost a soapy flavor. Not really my thing, however glad I got to try this sample gift from TeaGschwendner. Thanks!
Surprisingly floral in a few of the sips, which I’m (kind of?) okay with. Little cilantro anything sadly, which I love, and a touch of pineapple after the sip. I wish there was more pineapple, more cilantro, and less-to-no floral notes. It’s a lovely light tea though, vegetal and really flavorful as the cup progresses.
1.5 tsp in 8 oz, notes of floral, pineapple, vegetal.
