737 Tasting Notes
I’m headed out for a walk with a friend, so I decided to make the last of this sample from Dexter3657 to take with me.
I don’t mind the rooibos, I love the cinnamon, I’ve added brown sugar and milk, things are good.
I decided to move to caffeine free hot drinks for the rest of the evening. I’ve had a lot of tea today. :)
I do like this one. I wouldn’t call it pumpkin, but it’s cinnamon and other spices, and rooibos. The rooibos is almost drowned out by the cinnamon, which is awesome. I like it with a little honey or brown sugar to bring out the spices more.
If I see this on a shelf, I’ll probably pick up a tin. It’s a nice evening tea, it’s easy because of the bag (no picking rooibos out of my strainers), and it holds milk and honey or sugar pretty well.
Finally finished up this sample from Heather.
I really wish this tea were still available. I like it. A lot. I even picked the mini marshmallows out of the leaves to float in my mug. That’s dedication.
I’m, umm, not even going to put this one in my cupboard. The rest of the sample will go to my mom and brother. Thanks, Dexter3657, for sharing. :)
Interestingly, even with a 5 minute steep, the leaves are still fairly tightly curled. I wonder how long it would take for them to look like leaves..?
Smells like burnt chocolate dirt pie. It’s a flavour in tea that I just can’t wrap my head around, and I really can’t stand. I know other people like it, and more power to you if you do!
I’ve had two sips. I can’t drink this tea. If you like those dark roasty chocolatey earthy teas then you might like this one. I’m going to have to pass.
This is not a tea I’m expecting to enjoy – just need to say that up front. Cilantro tends to taste soapy, and I don’t care for bai mu dan.
And after the first sip, umm, no. It’s interesting, yes. Delicious? Not to me. But I can see how people would like this tea.
After sugar: Hmm. A little better, but still no. I’m getting more pineapple now.
I’m about 1/3 through my mug trying to pick this tea apart. I need to stop and move on to something that doesn’t taste quite so much like chutney.
SO GOOD. It’s a little astringent today, but I usually steep my teas in 195F (90C) water and I steeped with boiling this time.
Smooth caramel and vanilla and tea. Delicious. I’m debating on getting this one this weekend as well. So hard to decide, but I think I’ll leave the gift teas in my list, and not get more of this one. I just don’t ever reach for it, and I have 3 or 4 cups left to savour. That’s more than enough for the next few months. :) I do have a lot of tea…
Mmm. Delicious and fruity. A little astringent. Mmm.
I think my brother will like this one. :)
Yep. Having this again. With a little honey it really reminds me of Vicks orange vitamin c lozenges. Haha.
Something I’d pick up again on sale, but I don’t have to keep it in stock. :)
Out for Chinese food with a friend tonight, and we’re served puerh instead of the usual green! So awesome.
It’s actually a really nice puerh, too. Not what I’d expect for a cheap late night diner. :) Tastes like dirt. In a good way.
It looks pretty as it steeps, it turns into a neat murky red berry colour. Like natural dye. :)
Tasting it, I get tulsi and fennel. That’s pretty much it.
I don’t care for this one so much, so do any of my current swap peeps want to try?
