1114 Tasting Notes
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.
Ooh, it’s been a while since I’ve grabbed a maté. I got a lot of heat/spice out of this initially (love!) which mellowed out with a touch of sweetener. I also get something buttery sweet like licorice (zero in here), and then some coolness from the mint. Biggest note is the maté, although it’s subdued to me. Quite enjoying this cup.
EDIT: Super annoying that, in my attempts to help Steepster flesh out their new database details, I can’t.. who puts in only partial flavors, or partial ingredients? Nuh-uh. Please Steepster, give us the ability to add these things, because the options right now are so incredibly limited. I’ve emailed at least hundreds of additions now, and just want to get cracking to get these pages looking right. Use us, the free laborers that you have! We want to help. Truly.
Gosh I love this tea, and keep on forgetting that I have it. Lots of notes here: cocoa, vanilla, coolness of mint (minus the actual flavor of mint, if that makes any sense), a touch of something creamy in the mouthfeel. I feel decadent every time I have it, and I should really have it a lot more.
