1918 Tasting Notes
A sample from CrowKettle who got it from Fiddling!
Not as lemony as I expected, but still quite good. This is definitely something I need to get a sample pack of with my next order from H&S.
It’s quite a murky looking green tea, but something about the flavour is just.. I like it.
Sipdown! Thanks, Heather!
This tea is definitely berry. The berry flavour, especially after adding a tiny bit of sugar (1/8 tsp for 1 cup), is nice and juicy. I don’t really get maple from it, but that’s OK. I’m sure I could have brought it out by adding maple syrup to the tea instead of sugar. :)
While I’m enjoying this cup, I’m not sure I’d go out of my way to get some. There are other fruity teas I prefer (Fruits D’Alsace) to this one, as the base teas are more in line with my tastes.
Sipdown. Thanks, Incendiare!
This one is realllly disappointing to me. The dry leaves smelled SO GOOD. Chocolate, sweet sugary milkshake.
I made it as a latte with some unsweetened almond milk and water, then added sugar. It’s (really) tasty, but does not live up to the promise of how it smells. :(
Definitely would be willing to try this again (maybe not as a latte, or with more leaves, or something!) as it smells SO delicious.
My rating is :( , which is not numerically translatable.
So the first time I tried this tea, I wasn’t such a fan. Too much bitter walnut skin in my cup. After having a few cups, though, this is really nice. Not sure if I’ll add it to a future order (there are other teas I “need” more from Butiki!), but would definitely be glad to be a recipient of it.
Today I added a small amount of brown sugar, and I’m getting a lot of banana. So neat. Yum. :)
Oh, hey! I recognize the flavour of the sea buckthorn now thanks to Redberry Tonic from DavidsTea.
Pretty cool, that.
I haven’t had this in a while, but I really do like this one. I only have a couple cups left, but will be signing up for Teavana emails so I don’t miss a sale. I’d really like to get more of this one, but… I don’t want to go into the store.
This evening, I bagged the tea and am leaving the bag in my cup as I refill it over and over with hot water. Yep.
I went through and reorganized my Real Life cupboard as well as my Steepster cupboard. This sipdown means 183 teas! YAY! I am giving away a bunch of teas I know a friend will like, and there is another bunch that will be up for grabs on the Steepster boards if no one from Facebook takes them.
Such a relief.
I hit the sweet spot on this tea today. A touch of creamer and brown sugar, and it tastes amazing. Caramel, pumpkin spice, a bit of a cream cheese note… Yummers.
I had one serving left, so I just made it up as a latte. 50/50 unsweetened almond milk and water. A little brown sugar. Steeped slowly on the stove while I organized my tea cupboard and pulled out some teas to give away, and some teas to sip down.
Mmm. I’ll have to get another coconut oolong. This is still really good, although I think the coconut is about to go off. Too bad all the other available coconut oolongs are mail order. If DavidsTea still had this one, I’d definitely head out in the next couple days to refill my 50g tin. As it is, a coconut oolong gets to sit on my shopping list until I happen to order from a place that carries it.
