431 Tasting Notes
A deliciously light and broth-y, vegetal, with a full mouth feel with a fresh flavor. With as many green teas I have had in the past I must say this one left a memorable impression. I will be mentally keep this one on my “Must Have” list.
Plus Notes (Hubby): Tasted an earthiness tone with vegetal notes. Found the aroma nice and tasted delicious.
Thank you Jas eTea for the opportunity to sample this little gem.
Wow, way better than expected. I say this because when it comes to earl grey of any kind I tend to be a bit picky. However, in this case I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. No flavors were overwhelming and the lavender and bergamot played very well together. If I ever reach for an earl grey in the future. Chances are good it will be this one.
Thank you EPI for this sample. :)
A wonderful example of a fruity rooibos blend made right. Thanks again Kyle of EPI Tea.
Mild in flavor. Not your typical bold Irish Breakfast but could work for some. A full review on my blog…
I have been drinking this matcha these past two days thanks to The Tea Spot and I must say I am happy I had the chance. I have had several different types and grades of matcha and find this one best suited for homemade matcha latte’s. I simply used heated milk, a little sweetener, and about one teaspoon of matcha. It is such an easy recipe and completely adjustable to your liking. I found it to be very satisfying. The natural sweetness of the matcha came through first and strongest. I also noticed mild vegetal notes. The matcha seems great for making speciality drinks and I’d venture to say even matcha infused ice cream. I would recommend better packaging that would help contain the matcha better. If drinking this in traditional fashion I would consider it a nice starter matcha.
Wow, this tastes amazing. I remembered the last time I had this that I liked it as well but I am on my fifth infusion using my new Crane Gaiwan pictured here… http://instagr.am/p/KSgR3RyqQ2/ and all I can say is that I truly believe that this Gaiwan has improved upon perfection. I can’t believe how well it is holding up. I love the sweet liquor I get and just how silky each sip tastes and feels. Truly a gorgeous oolong.
Thanks again Two Leaves and a Bud for sending me this sample.
I honestly wasn’t a huge fan of this one. It was a little flavorless and the flavor I did get was a mineral like taste. Only once did I get a vegatal flavor but it wasn’t nearly as strong as I would have preferred.
I hope someone else tries this and experiences something better. I have enough for two more cups and will give it a try again and change my steeping perimeters. I hope to get a better result. Until then, this was not my cuppa.
First, I want to say “Thank you” to Two Leaves and a Bud I really appreciate your sending me this tea to sample.
Can I just say “Wow” I was very surprised by this one. It’s rather good actually. It’s light, fresh, and has best lingering note that only occurs in a Darjeeling. I am not sure how to put that flavor into words but I am sure you know what I am talking about.
I’d say try this the next time you want a Darjeeling. :)
