2196 Tasting Notes
I had to copy Morgana and make myself a cup of this.
It’s an herbal I’ve had for a while, so I used a generous amount, and must have got a bunch of vanilla in my cup.
It smells like soft, gentle, lemony pudding. Tastes like lemongrass, mostly. But it’s too hot to do anything more than delicately slurp, hoping you get enough air in that your tongue doesn’t get burned. Ahh, there’s some vanilla.
I do like this tea, but it’s one, like Morgana, that I can’t see myself drinking often, though I do enjoy it when I occasionally sip it.
Edit: I totally got this because Moldavian dragonhead is an ingredient. Hahaha. That, and I like lemony things.
This is a Lychee Chinese Black I got from Bear With Me, last time I visited. IDK when that was though. D:
It’s really really good. I’m having it with some cream, because it’s what I had in the fridge. Super fruity and floral, although I’m not sure I’d really pick out lychee flavour. So much of a lychee is the experience peeling it, and then the funny texture of the fruit. :)
Thanks so much! I have enough for another mug, but I think that will go quickly…
Drinking this today for a bit. Here’s hoping it goes better than last time! Especially now that I have a bit more experience with sheng.
Now my opinion is that it’s pretty light. There’s a neat thickness to it, and some smoke and leather, but it’s nicely mellowed. Yum. It’s a little bitter, a little sweet. Just what I was wanting, actually!
At this point in my taste evolution, I’d say I’d like more of this tea. LOL. Oh well.
Oh, this one is interesting. But in a way where I don’t think I want to drink it.
It feels pretty rich. Kind of like a gunpowder in the way that it’s a teensy bit smoky/earthy with some sensations of being in the open air on a mountain side. But the green vegetable notes are really not agreeing with me. :(
Thank you, fuzzypeachkin, but this is so not for me. I’m not sure if it’s the age, but I would think that this tea would age pretty well due to its shape and apparent processing.
Edit: Also marine notes. That might actually be it. Sorry tea, it’s definitely me.
Oh. My god.
I’ve had these samples for TWO YEARS.
I’m so sorry, fuzzypeachkin and CrowKettle. I’m drinking them today I swear. O.o
Anyways, this Assam is a decent Assam? It’s a little sweet. Malty with that typical Assam flavour. I’m actually drinking it WITHOUT milk, which is almost unheard of, but it’s nice. I haven’t had a straight Assam for a while, so I’ll just sit here and enjoy the cup.
