737 Tasting Notes
This tea was pretty good! It’s definitely an assam, it has all those assam-y flavours. It’s fairly light and thin, but very flavourful.
Not really a tea I’d go for again. I tend to prefer my assams to be in your face strong, taking milk and/or sugar well. I think this one would be overwhelmed with milk. If you like assam teas, definitely give this one a try.
The second steep sat for about half an hour (oops?) and it’s definitely drinkable. More sharp and tannic, yes, but it’s not overwhelming.
I made up a pot (on the stove kind of pot) of this as a latte when my friend came over to make me mark papers with her (I love marking papers. Some are SO BAD, but then some are really good!).
Neither of us liked it, even as a latte. It was too artificial and bitter tasting. I think the rest of the leaves are going to have an “accident”.
This is more for me than anything. I tried this tonight. Steeped about 45 seconds.
So not for me. (Self, do not get tempted by this tea in the future!)
Sadly it’s way too green and vegetal, verging on bitter grass. I see why the note says to not oversteep it!
This tea is from Dexter3657. Thanks! :)
This is so good. It actually survived in my travel mug during my winter walk really well. It still had nice flavour, and isn’t too strong with a 2 minute steep.
I have to try it in a ceramic mug instead of a stainless travel mug, but so far it’s on my list of “teas to buy”!
Another green tea today. I thought I only had a cup of this left, but it looks like after this one, there are THREE more cups in my package! What a generous sample from CrowKettle. :)
This one is a bit tricksy. You have to steep it cool or it goes bitter. 160F works for me, and brings out the lovely citrus flavour. Mmm.
I really like this green tea, but not enough to buy a whole tin. :) I just don’t reach for green teas often enough to make it worthwhile.
Now I’m going to make another mug of tea and go for a walk, and pop into work to pick up my mittens and kitty toque.
This is another tea I love that I always forget to reach for.
Smooth buttery dragonwell, freeze dried strawberries, delicate toffee, a little warmth from the ginger. Mmm. I’m not sure I really taste the pieces separately, especially with no sugar added, but it’s just a delightful party in my mouth. :D
I’m already almost finished my second steep of this tea. I made two huge mugs of it, as my tummy isn’t too happy about the amount of sugar and dairy I’ve been consuming the last couple days.
So delicious with a little honey. The second steep sat for a while, so it’s all about the ginger. I don’t mind at all. :)
Om nom nom. Made a couple pots of this while a friend was over tonight. So delicious. We had it with a little soy creamer.
I only got 25g, and I seriously regret it. MOAR TEA!
Hmm. Needs to be overleafed. Is oily. Has floaties. Incredibly sweet.
Good thing I like the flavour. :)
Just with some soy creamer. The spices are so nice right now. It doesn’t make me crave a pumpkin pie, though. Not similar enough to my mom’s recipe, and I’m not sure there’s really any pumpkin in there.
(I used 1 heaping tbsp in a 16oz mug.)
The new package of this I opened this morning has only a few tea leaves. Oh well! Sweet mulberries and coconut, it still tasted great. I’m so glad I found this one 2/$5. But I need to start drinking it more, as I still have 50g unopened.
