drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas
624 tasting notes

1.25 tbsp for 375 ml

Thin-tasting. Slight chocolate flavour. Sweetness. Not enough genmaicha flavour coming through. Overall, bland tasting. Slight odd bleach-like note that I think is associated with the chocolate taste.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 30 sec

i swear there’s just something wrong with the reblends from frank. :(

Sil

(not that this is a reblend but it practically is…)

TastyBrew

I get that weird chemical flavor too. Strange.

The scent of the brewed tisane has a slightly Forever Nuts by David’s Tea tone with an overwhelming scent of hibiscus.

Slight creaminess. Overwhelmingly hibiscus. I’m getting an odd cabbage taste note into the aftertaste.

Thanks to Indigobloom for letting me try this!

drank Jamaican Me Crazy by T by Daniel
624 tasting notes

Sweet coconut. Very full flavour. Complements sencha green tea flavour very well. Slight fruity tone.

Second infusion is quite good with the green tea flavour being more apparent and coconut moving to the background but still present.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

it’s operation sipdown time! i hope…

Kittenna

Op, another T by Daniel that I missed out on :P (I could have sworn you guys offered them all to me, but maybe you just made me sniff them all. I was pretty distracted!)

Sil

i thought we gave you this one…i remember telling raritea to pull it from my bag

Kittenna

Yep, I thought so too, but I went through the pile of teas from you guys that evening and wrote everything down, and I only had 2 teas from T by Daniel, Trina’s Tiramisu, and Wild Cherry :)

Sil

Wild cherry is china tea, not T by Daniel :) I’m sure i’ll have more to kick your way just poke me when i post a review heh

Kittenna

Yeah, as soon as I said that I was thinking that I had already seen Raritea review all five, and that wasn’t one of them. Guess I somehow ended up with only the one T by Daniel sample!

Indigobloom

I don’t recall seeing this one either. Must have been when Kittenna and I were swapping other tea!

Sil

No we passed all 5 around. Maybe we gave Sharon too many of the same tea lol

drank Grapefruit Green by Lupicia
624 tasting notes

1 tablespoon used for 248 ml

I’m detecting a Gyokuro-like scent in the aroma.

I would have appreciated a bolder Gyokuro flavour in the taste. It seems to be subdued and the taste is slightly sencha-like. Good grapefruit flavour. I get a real post-grapefruit eating tingly feeling on my tongue.

Second infusion using 188 ml. Grapefruit flavour is pushed to the background but the grapefruit citrus mouthfeel is still present. Slight quick sour note from the grapefruit. Soft sweetness present. Green tea flavour is more apparent with roasted tones.

Thanks to Sil and Kittenna for sharing this with me!

you just let me know if you want the rest of it lol

TastyBrew

Ooh. I love grapefruit. I may need to try this!
