191 Tasting Notes
This is the only non-sample sized tea I got in my Yezi Tea order. Thought I’d like this one best. But gotta admit, kinda disappointed by this one.
It’s pretty earthy above all. Once you get past that you begin tasting sweet potatoes. But mostly just earthiness. It will probably grow on me since I have an ounce of it, but…it’s just alright for me right now.
Flavors: Earth, Sweet Potatoes
Hm…this one is interesting. Not sure how I feel about it. Not a favorite, but it’s interesting.
Cocoa, chocolate, and earth are the main things I’m tasting.
I just have no idea how to feel about this one. xD Feeling a little stumped from it…but it’s interesting. Glad I got to try it. Maybe I’ll figure out what I think when I re-steep it.
Thanks for the sample, Sarsonator! :D
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Earth
Got this tea as a sample in the Verdant order I placed a while ago.
Was hit by a wave of chocolate when I opened the bag. That must be a good sign, right? :P
Well definitely is! Cocoa and chocolate all the way with this tea! Another enjoyable cup tonight. Mann I’ve been on a black tea kick all day it feels like. Good tea day! :D
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa
This is the last of the samples that kimquat sent me. Oh my goodness.
This was is the best. I’ve tried quite a few good teas from that swap…But this one. Wow. This one is amazing.
Cocoa. Honey. Graham Crackers. Raisins. Chocolate.
This tea is just incredible.
Might actually by my favorite from Verdant so far.
I think I over steeped it by a minute or two, but it’s not bitter at all!
Wow. You just have to try this tea. So good!
I am definitely gonna buy it if It ever becomes available again!
Thank you so much, kimquat, for broadening my tea horizons! :D That was a fun swap. ^^
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Graham Cracker, Honey, Raisins, Sweet
Another one from kimquat.
Eh, thought this one was gonna taste a whole lot better than it actually did.
Literally all I taste is cream. Definitely sticks with the name. But I was expecting something more for some reason. xD
Glad I got to try, but not something I’d ever drink again. Once is totally fine. :P
Thanks, kimquat for the sample!
Got a sample of this from kimquat a few months ago. Finally getting around to it.
This one is absolutely delicious!
Sweet potatoes…Baked bread…Ugh, so good!!
Hints of earthiness but hardly noticeable. Definitely another win! Probably something I’d consider ordering in the future even. :O
Flavors: Baked Bread, Earth, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes
Got this one in my last swap with mj! Was going to try it like a month ago…but somehow it got lost on my shelf. Finally recovered it while organizing my tea the other day. So finally getting to try it!
This is so chocolatey! So much dark chocolate…wow. xD
It’s so strong and rich…Don’t think I had expected it to be this chocolatey!
Definitely a winner!
Thanks again for the sample, mj! :D
Flavors: Dark Chocolate
Got this tea from…Mandy I think??
Well whoever it’s from I definitely owe them some tea because as skeptical as I was over Creme Brulee teas lately, I actually thoroughly enjoyed this tea. I can’t even place what I like about it so much….
I’m getting a crap load of caramel from this tea right now, and it’s amazing. It’s strong and sweet. Don’t even need to think about adding anything to enhance the flavor. It’s delicious! Definitely a win!
If I ever place another Simpson & Vail order, definitely getting this one!
Flavors: Caramel, Sweet
