232 Tasting Notes
So far I haven’t been too impressed by the Yezi Tea samples, but this one!
This one surprised me!
It’s creamy and malty. Hardly any earthiness at all! Definitely something that I would buy again if they had a really good sale or free shipping!
The win of the night! :D
Flavors: Cream, Malt
This is seriously the perfect tea to relax to. Had a horrible night,and barely slept thanks to pain. It’s just the perfect tea to have when I want to relax. I can’t say that enough. xD
It’s become my tea to drink after I take pain killers, because other tea has the habit of making me more awake…so can’t relax.
This tea is just awesome. So glad I got 5 tins of it! ^^
I have learned over this last year that some teas turn bad for hours in a tumbler. Primarily straight teas that I’ve tried it seems. Though some flavored teas kinda lose their strong flavor too sometimes.
But this tea!
I went out to eat with my family. Then went to Starbucks, and then church and this tea was good all the way!
It stayed strong, peachy, and perfume-y! A great tea to put into my tumbler.
On a sad note though, kinda running out of this tea. D: Luckily I have to go down to UCLA to get another nerve block shot in December so maybe I can swing by the Lupicia store before! That would definitely make that day so much better!
Can’t wait to get more of this one! The best peach tea I’ve had so far!!
So. The description for this tea is: Cream, Honey, Smoke, Vanilla.
Least according to Steepster.
This tea is nothing like that description. Perhaps it’s because I steeped it for three minutes instead of two, but…doubt it’s that.
For me this one is strong and earthy. The bready-ness made it drinkable, but…there’s just so much earthiness. Makes me not so much of a fan, to be honest.
Would rather not feel like I am mainly drinking dirt. xD But it’s not horrible. Just not what I expected or hoped for.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Earth
Well. This is a weird one. xD
Got a couple tea bags of this from The Cookie Lady. Didn’t seem like something I’d like, but I figured I might as well try it! I get surprised so often in the tea world, I figure that everything deserves a chance!
So when I opened the package of this, it didn’t really smell like tea. In fact, it smelled like BBQ chips. None of my teas have even been near foods, nor have I eaten anything BBQ flavored. So that was confusing, but also made me more excited. xD
The steeping on this was like 10-15 minutes long also, which was really weird. And I kept forgetting (thanks to vicodin) and having mini-heart attacks that I was wayyy oversteeping the tea. But apparently these kinds of things steep for a long time I guess?
As for flavor, it didn’t taste like BBQ chips, which kinda disappointed me, to be honest. It would have been soo weird if it had tasted like that, but almost good-haha! The actual drink tasted more like dirt and peanuts. xD
It’s not horrible. But not anything I’d drink again.
It was exciting to try it though. It’s been a good day for trying all sorts of different teas! Glad I could try this one, even though it wasn’t the best.
Thanks, The Cookie Lady! :D
Flavors: Dirt, Flowers, Nuts
Apparently it’s amaretto that I am tasting. :O Don’t really know what that is to be honest, but if I were to describe it in other words, I’d just say that this tea tastes a lot like cherry and berries. Not really sure how else to describe it.
It’s interesting though.
Definitely taste the woody rooibos, but it’s not overpowering in this cup, which is good. Anyway, this one is interesting. Not sure what to think.
Thanks Albertocanfly for broadening my tea horizons!
Flavors: Berries, Cherry, Wood
In the birthday package Albertocanfly sent me, she threw in a whole pack of this tea! Really have fallen in love with this one. Trying to save it though since It’s not available online and I don’t have any store around here that carries it. I will savor this tea!
The more I drink it the more I like it, and the more I find myself craving it! It’s delicious! If you like genmaicha-you’ll like this one too!
Bumping my rating on this one!
