415 Tasting Notes

72
drank With Open Eyes by Butiki Teas
415 tasting notes

0.5 tbsp for 200ml

Extremely mineral tasting- I felt like I was drinking a carbonated beverage. The strawberry is mild in flavour, more apparent in the aroma. The ginger is very faint. There is a baked-goods note; like a pastry on the roof of my mouth in the aftertaste. As the tea cools the strawberry flavour becomes a bit more punchy.

Thanks to Sil for letting me try some!

drank Lemon Cardamom Chun Mee by 52teas
415 tasting notes

1 tbsp for 375 ml

Smokey hints. Light lemon flavour. Green tea flavour is oceanic-mineral. The cardamom flavour is not overly apparent. There may have been some flavour lost due to age.

I will not give this an official rating because I don’t really like lemon-green tea and because I’ve had this one around for so long. I received this in my 52teas 12 days of tea box last year.

drank Grand Amour by Nina's Paris

Black tea base is smooth with a delightful straw-like note. Fruity notes are more present in the aroma than the flavour. There is a bit of a sweetness.

Thanks to Nina’s Paris for the sample!

1.25 tbsp for 375 ml of water

Very fruity aroma. Mostly cherry flavour creeping in on aftertaste. Black tea taste along side fruit flavours is a little astringent and overpowers the fruit.

Thanks to Nina’s Paris for the sample.

Thick mouth feel that lingers- makes you feel as if you just bit into a real marshmallow treat dessert. Marshmallow sweetness with a lovely roasted rice flavour complement. Green tea flavour is quite subdued- almost metallic in flavour.

Infusing at a lower temperature for a shorter amount of time seems to cause the bitterness to be subdued. The tea is much more enjoyable.
