93 Tasting Notes
The thing about rooibos is… it’s not tea.
Not in many peoples eyes, anyway. And I do see their point; it’s not a camilla.
I hated rooibos at first because my first rooibos tea was disgusting. A dear friend of mine had me try it, and I just couldn’t finish this little cup of rooibos. That’s very impolite in Greenland, and while she was out of the kitchen I threw the 80 % of the tea out in the zink and drank the rest of it with a smile when she came back.
Yes, I am 100% evil
Another friend of mine kind of forced me to drink rooibos. His was just better.
It wasn’t a clean rooibos either – but something with vanilla or almond.
I still can’t drink a clean rooibos just like I can’t drink a clean pu-erh without forcing myself.
This is one of my fave’s. Everyone I served this for says: “This smells like christmas!”
It does. And it soo easy! The teabag can be in the mug forever and it just taste better and better. Well… I do like malty teas, so maybe that’s just me.
…I only have two rules when it comes to tea shopping.
1. Package must look good.
2. Tea must smell delicius.
I would never ever buy this tea if it wasn’t for the smell. It’s… special.
It reminds me of fastfood, the nasty disgustingly greasy kind. I love fastfood. It’s awesome.
Anyways. This tea smell like friture but it taste like coffee! Seriusly!!!
Like it a little. hmm… like it…
Yes, this is my kind of coffee.
…Strawberry and green tea.
I always get the UGH feeling when those two meet in a mug. They kind of clash. Both ingredients has a bitterness to it. Combined they are just to much…
But I couldn’t help myself when the sweetest ekspedient let me have a whiff of this. I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!! I don’t need to drink it; Just throwing into my closet is fine. Just having it in my home like a perfume – I needed to buy it.
It’s bitter but it’s not that bad. Maybe if I steep it for a shorter time and cool it down…?
Then maybe… Just maybe, it could turn out to be one of my fave!
Looks into the can
Yummy berries. Good leafs. Is that strawberry? YUM… and that looks like orange.
What’s that?! Is that a… PEARL?!
A jasmine pearl???
Wonder if it’s part of the blend or a mistake. Found four pearl in total. I don’t mind. I love pearls. There is nothing wrong with the tea either. It’s a fine yellow liquid. Bought a kettle so I can boil the water to precise 80 celcius. Good result… The small dusty things are dancing slowly to the bottom. Some of them stand still for a while.
I like that. It’s like matrix.
Smell of heaven. Sweet and flowery.
The taste is sharp but sweet. Can’t taste the berries, can’t taste the pearls, can’t taste the leafs. Why? Because it’s blended into a symphony. Perch does that a lot – I don’t mind.
I LOVE IT!
Hello Steepsterias ;)
Long time no see! I had to go to Denmark for some checkups in Copenhagen.
This, sadly, means I didn’t drink any tea for ages. But I did think of tea, and all of you,
when I went on a shopping spree. I am now the happy owner of … a lot of tea :P
This is one of the teas I bought i Perchs teashop.
If you ever visit Copenhagen, you should really try stopping by their adorable little shop.
I just love how tiny and cute it is! And the service is just great
…I am a traitor.
Since last week I started drinking smoothies in the morning – my boyfriend seems to think it’s a better “breakfast” than my morning tea. He is soo wrong. I can’t eat anything before afternoon, It’s a family trait. I get sick and tired by eating too early. Like my father used to say:“It’s still in the middle of the night” at 08:00.
So this week I just walked around like a zombie to my classes. It may very well be that my better half get’s energy by breakfast (his stomach is like a acidlake 24 hours a day) but my stomach don’t work before 12:00.
I miss my morning tea!!!
sipping this tea is too smoked for afternoon…
That’s what it reminds me of! Risengrød is something you get at christmas. Uhm, don’t know the english word for it, but it’s rice boiled in milk (?) covered by a layer of a blend of cinnamon and sugar. And a spoonfull of butter in the middel.
This smells exactly of risengrød – The cinnamon/sugar/butter combo.
The liquid is dark orange with a lot of dust in it. Fist sip taste exactly as expected, like risengrød without the rice. But this combo is very spicey!
Hmm.. 7 stars out of 10. But I rather drink it next winter.
This tea has a lime green color.
It’s still salty, but in a pleasant way. This brew also has a little seaweed notes in it… But this time it’s perfectly balances. It makes me thirst for another sip, while I type. It’s like good food – you know your full but you can’t stop because it just taste so good. You’ll eat it, just for the taste!
