1613 Tasting Notes
So I’m finally trying this. I guess I can see why Sil didn’t like it. Very jasmine. So floral. Wow.
Also kinda resiny (almost minty). And grassy.
This is really neat. I think I like it a lot. Not something I’d need all the time, but the flavours are super unique and it’s a nice change from the black teas I tend to prefer.
Thanks so much, Sil!
Ohhhhhhhhhh my goodness. This smells AWESOME. Thank you, Dinosara!!
I had to add 1 wee chunk of rock sugar to this, based on the amazing smell. Seriously, it’s butter and salt and caramel. How do they do this? And the leaves are AMAZING, and will survive one or two resteeps as well.
And now that I’ve been distracted by laundry (and sewing plans eee!!!), and I’m back to drink this, this tea is amazing. I mean, I’d totally prefer a black tea base so I could buy it and drink it ALL THE TIME without getting oolong drunk, but wow. Delicious.
It’s a super buttery oolong that is definitely an oolong. The butter-salt-caramel flavour is spot on. If you like these flavours, definitely try to give this one a try because it’s amazing.
Thank you so much!
(1.5 tsp per 12 oz)
Hmm. This made a pretty thin tea latte, now that I’m out of eggnog (again).
But still, it’s nice with the chocolate biscotti. Unfortunately the cookies aren’t quite what I was looking for. They’re pretty good, but the flavour isn’t quite right. I’m going to make some almond date biscotti later this weekend I think.
As an ahem eggnog latte. Tea-nog lattea? IDK. Whatever. It doesn’t have coffee and I’ve mixed the tea with warm eggnog.
So. Freaking. Good.
I need to go get some soy nog or almond nog tomorrow, see how they do with this treatment.
(3 tsp tea in 10 oz water, 6 oz nog.)
WOO I have more of this OMG! Thanks so much, Dinosara! I might end up keeping a good chunk of it for myself, because although I prefer rooibos to honeybush… this is just SO good.
And weirdly, the German packaging calls it “Emily”. Weird.
Anyways, it’s delicious. Caramel and strawberry, with some vanilla as well I think. Too bad honeybush goes sour on me, but it’s still tasty. It would be SO good as a latte. I’m just having it with milk.
As a tea-nog latte this morning. There were 4 tsp left, but 1/2 tsp was crumbly bottom of the tin bits, so those went into the compost.
I don’t love this tea. It’s very very drying, a little green, and somewhat pithy. Unfortunately even the eggnog couldn’t hide all those flavours.
Oh well. My mom knows to not get me another 100g!
(3.5 tsp in 10 oz. 6 oz eggnogs)
