1377 Tasting Notes
I had this tea hot again last night, and I really do prefer it this way. I finally got a kick of ginger nearing the bottom of my cup!
So I think I’ll hot steep the rest and pour it over ice/chill it in the fridge. Quite a tasty tea, especially with that ginger!
There are a few places that stock this tea, and I have a feeling it’s all from the same Grandpa. :)
So good. Rich and malty. Possibly astringent or bitter, but this is totally a tea for cream. So that’s how I’m having it. And it’s delicious. I could see this tea being a morning staple.
Just a note: I’m consuming this tea while eating some seriously sub-par bacon flavoured potato chips. Mackie’s of Scotland also has Haggis flavour, and I’m sooooo glad I didn’t get that one. The chip texture is also kinda meh. They’re not properly crunchy, rather they’re hard. Would I try another variety? Yes, but not the Haggis.
Sadness! This one is almost gone. :(
Oh well. It’s delightful, and I know I need to get more if I or anyone close by does a S&V order. :)
This is a really decent spiced white bagged tea. I’m glad I got it whenever it was I picked it up, but I don’t think I need to get it again. Today it’s mostly chicory and white tea that I’m tasting, with a few spices and a little sweetness.
And I’m still under 260 even with the new teas, which is nice. I might drink a few more easy sipdowns tonight, or maybe not. :)
I picked this up on the weekend to share with my parents. It’s super cute! As it brews the star POOFS up and becomes huge.
Sadly, the flavour was not for any of us. I would say “strong marine notes” but it tasted like kelp. So seaweedy.
Still, I’m glad I had a chance to try it. Such a neat idea, and I’m sure that people who like darker oolongs would like this a lot more.
3 steeps later and I’m neither tea drunk nor awake. Is it bed time yet. Mom says it isn’t, which makes me sad.
This tea is delightful. I haven’t had another sun moon lake before but I couldn’t resist because of the name. Nice and sweet assamy malty flavours. Sil and MissB will definitely be getting some of this.
Finishing this sample up tonight while I 20/10 my house into submission. I’m going to Nanaimo tomorrow, and will pester my friends until they take me past the Tea Desire! So I’ll soon have lots of this tea. :D :D :D
A nice introductory flavoured puerh, this is mostly caramel and there is no mushroomy fishy weirdness that seems to put people off this general type of tea.
So if you like caramel and are starting to investigate puerh, try this one! So good. :)
