1425 Tasting Notes
I made this to bring to work this morning.
Objectively I do like the smell and the flavour of these roasted oolongs, but it was just too much. Which is interesting because a lapsang souchong is generally fine in the morning.
I think this one needs to be relegated to shorter steeps at home and not in a travel mug. I also think I should focus on the super green and floral oolongs, as I seem to like them a lot more.
Made this morning, with cream. It’s a general sort of creamy chocolatey mildly coconutty tea. More chocolate because I added some Crio Bru to the steeping basket, which was nice.
I had it with a dollop of cream.
I don’t think I’ll get it again. It’s not bad, but it’s not something I always want to drink, like either Creme Brulee or Divine Temptation…
Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut
A fandom blend from Shmiracles! Thank you!
The reference is sadly lost on me. But the tea smells caramelly, so I drank it. And it’s only near the bottom of the cup I get any bergamot from it.
So, it’s pretty good! I am quite enjoying it!
Thanks for the sample. :) :)
I made this in my not-a-Timolino and brought it to work today. Ahh, the memories. I used to drink this “Grandfather Style” at an old job. Just kept refilling my mug all day.
It’s essentially a cinnamon puerh, with some citrus. In this case, it’s grapefruit although I think the peels might be orange? IDK.
It’s good. I like it.
SIGH. This is the strawberry tea I’ve been looking for.
Only it’s not. Because no black tea should require 185F water and a less than 2 minute steep to be drinkable.
So. Amazing flavour, terrible base. I guess I’ll keep looking.
I’m having this hot tonight, and I must admit, I’m enjoying it more hot than I did cold! It’s like… the lime or margarita jelly beans. It’s an incredibly sweet flavour, with some ginger coming through gently in the background.
Not sure I’d get it again, but I’ll definitely drink it all up. :)
So good. I made a cup of this to take out with me this evening, as I went and picked up new runners (they had to order them in because they don’t make the kind I like anymore!) and have dinner and drinks with a friend.
Mmm, tea. This mix is so good. I’m almost through the 200g I bought.
Dinner was also so good. And so were drinks. And then we went for a walk and it was lovely.
Hmm. Shaken with almond milk and a few ice cubes.
I’m just not sure I’m a huge fan of the flavoured matcha anymore. I’m getting such a chemical aftertaste that I’m not going to be able to finish this glass.
So frustrating, because a year ago I LOVED these flavoured matchas. But now I really prefer plain matcha. I can always add my own flavouring by using vanilla sugar, or chocolate milk, or whatever fruits I want in a smoothie.
(3/4 tsp in just over 1 cup of liquid.)
Oh wow! I don’t think I’ve had this one with cream before. It’s so good this way! Apricot and orange are NOT a flavour combo I thought I’d fall for, but I did.
Still, I think the 100g tin will be enough. Fauchon teas are expensive even in Europe, I think mostly for the seriously lovely tins. (I’m still looking at Madeleine de Miel, just because I’ve never seen these flavours before, and… honey tea! <3 http://www.fauchon.com/en/the-madeleine-au-miel.html)
