269 Tasting Notes
This is a new local company that I’ve seen popping up a lot in stores near me. I’m always excited for new local tea places! If anyone is interested in trying these teas please let me know :) (website: http://www.whitecloudworldteas.com/)
I cold brewed this overnight. I definitely added too much for this. I forgot how much oolong poofs up! I can get the strawberry flavor, which is a bit sweet and candyish. But the tea is a bit too bitter. I will try this again with about half as much as I used!
Backlog: This is my first flavored matcha! Unfortunately I don’t really have blender access. So I put some of this and some milk in a seal able cup and shook it up! I feel like I put in much more than the required amount, but it tasted like milk up until I added a bunch in. I’m not sure how accurate of a representation this is since I probably committed some horrible taboo by doing all that. Anyway, this was reeeeally sweet. I don’t know if I would say that I got caramel exactly, but definitely lots of sweetness, almost to the point of too sweet. I would like to compare other flavors, and try different methods, to see how well I did with this one.
TTB Tea 13: I picked this one for my studying before the organic chemistry test tomorrow. I feel as though it was a good choice! The flavor is very nice without being astringent or bitter. It was malty, a little chocolatey, and rich without any added flavors. And it gave me a nice caffeine boost!
Flavors: Chocolate, Malt, Nuts
TTB Tea 10: This was going to be my first tea after returning from spring break, yesterday. I really needed tea too, I’m pretty sure I’m getting sick. Unfortunately, after steeping this one up, I only got a sip or two before getting completely distracted and forgetting about it. I definitely had some roasty oolong flavor, but I don’t remember much, or really any, peach flavor. It was still quite warm when I tried it, so perhaps this tea is one of those where the flavor comes out more as it cools.
TTB Tea 10: This is really good! It’s much more chocolate than mint. The mint hangs out in the background and and complements the other flavors. The chocolate really goes well with the earthy puerh flavors. I didn’t even need to rinse, and there was no fishy flavor! I really like this one.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth
