828 Tasting Notes
Holy Fruit Salad, Batman! Thats what this smells like, a fruit salad on a summers day. This is a sample of some Hawaii only tea that was brought back from a recent trip. Generally I like it. Its very interesting in the sachet, with little silver balls and whatnots. It tastes a bit like a fruit salad as well, which makes a good tea for a morning like today, where the temp is going to be way up high. A refreshing oolong.
Ahhh. Meadow is the chamomile that I have been looking for. This is as rich and flavorful a chamomile tea as I have ever said. This was part of a bunch of teas that I got the last time I was in Oregon, and I really, really like it. I am always questing for a good chamomile to crown my evenings. This isn’t available anywhere locally for me, but thank goodness for the internet. I’ve got to try some more Smith Teamaker teas now.
Ah, Comoro. Vanilla Blacks decaffeinated little sister. I would be more weirded out by a decaf black tea, if it wasn’t so lovely. A way for me to have the flavors of my beloved Vanilla Black in the evenings, without running the risk of being up all night. This is a delightful vanilla balm for the soul, and a great cup for the end of a long day.
Ah. Ahhhh. This is the stuff. Yume was an impulse buy, and I should listen to that impulse all the time. This is wonderful, simply marvelous. Fruity and light and simply wonderful. I am working on a month long 50000 word writing project, and my writings are always powered by tea. This is the perfect pot to start off this novel. Yume has beautiful fruit and vanilla flavors, though I don’t get much of the rose out of it. Yum!
My parents returned from a trip to Hawaii and brought me this tea. I LOVE this tea. Its light, and seems to sparkle across the palate, which may be a weird thing to say about black tea, but there you have it. Its got rose in it, but its amazingly subtle, and just turns into a light and delicious tea. The sad thing is that this tea is only available in Hawaii, and I am rapidly running out of this. Sadness. I will save my last couple of pots of Loke Lani for a special occasion.
