414 Tasting Notes

1 tablespoon for 248 ml

I can taste a mixture of the coconut and raspberry- but only very faintly. This blend reminds me of “Fantasy Island” by David’s Tea. The black tea base is a little too astringent. There may have been some spearmint contamination from my Nearly Nirvana sample sitting beside it.

Great flavour combination. The spearmint is the predominant flavour which balances well with the jasmine. The white tea gives the slightest pleasant astringent edge.

drank Toasted Apple by Bluebird Tea Co.

Candy green apple flavouring. Slightness of blunt astringency or smokiness. Toasty rice flavour. Green tea flavour complements the apple taste very well. Green tea flavour is mild and sencha-like.

Predominant flavour is lavender with chamomile in the background. Hibiscus is very well blended- I can’t pick it out in the blend. There a slight lemony zing which I’m sure the hibiscus is accentuating.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

A little astringent. Jasmine is not overpowering and balances well with the fruity passion-fruit flavour.

Thanks to Sil for sharing this with me!

I think that this tea must have lost some flavour in transit.

:( That’s unfortunate. Btw, I’d suggest splitting future samples into unflavoured/mildly flavoured/strongly flavoured to prevent contamination. I’m very glad that I took some strongly flavoured things (e.g. cloves, cinnamon, mint) away from my other samples, bc otherwise I think they would have all tasted like that. I’m not gonna offer you another sample of this from my bag, because I’m currently very possessive of it, but when I order more in the future (it’s a when), remind me and you’re welcome to have some, with minimal transit time :)

That’s a good idea! I was using two boxes to transport but I guess I could have used another. There were one or two in the mildly/non-flavoured box that accidentally got away from me and made friends with some of my more delicate teas! Don’t worry about another sample- I have so many more to try!!

(Oh, don’t worry – your sample was entirely from Sil. I’m just saying that although I don’t think she’s going to order more, I will be!)

drank Paradise Green by Lupicia

1 tbsp for 248 ml

Smooth taste and mouthfeel. No astringency. Floral tone in background near after aftertaste. Fruity note most like a creamy papaya but it is a lot fainter than what I’d like. Presence of green tea with a slight vegetal hint.

A little astringency. Authentic plum aroma. Marshmallow aftertaste. Sencha base flavour comes through. Odd sharp metallic/pungent/slightly swampy note that has a zinging sensation on the tongue.

Dilute flavour. Slight creaminess. Sugary aftertaste. Lime flavour throughout. I would prefer this flavouring with a green tea base.

Maple syrup or marshmallow-like sweetness. Lavender is stronger than the bergamot but I enjoy the balance of the two. No excessive astringency.
