5074 Tasting Notes
sipdown! this was a share from dexter, who is awesome! Sadly, this one falls a little flat. It’s not a bad cup of tea but there is a floral note hiding in the tea that i am not the biggest fan on. It’s not enough to ruin the cup for me thankfully, but it is enough for me to pass on needing to pick this up. I appreciate the share though, since i was curious about these teas but missed the chance to try them recently :) thanks dexter!
sipdown! Morning tea! I actually am really glad i had at least one sipdown today because my verdant monthly teas arrived via my tea mule. Hence i’m even further away from my black friday goal, even though i HAD actually made it at one point. Here’s hoping i can get a couple more in this week before the weekend hits!
I am greatful to dinosara for sharing this one with me. While i have loved drinking this one, I have to admit it’s not an unsually spectacular keemun, and therefore i’m not sure how it ended up as a reserve tea. Still though, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
sipdown on this one. 1 out of 3 for the first month of verdant’s blend club is ok i guess. Not a fan of this, though i do like it more than the norther wild one. I tried this one cold to see how that fares and sadly it a whole lot of star anise, which i don’t mind in moderation but it’s overpowering even the mint in the cold brew heh.
sipdown on this one! This is the last of the tes for this morning as i need to go out and run some errands…more to come when i get back though as i have a few things on my list i want to drink up today if time allows and i’m in the mood :) I am a fan of this one…it’s creamy and fruity. I think i need to give terri an excuse to pick up a few more from this company so i can try some more and maybe make a small purchase haha
another tea from Alice and i’m glad our sentiments are of the same mind. I am not overly a fan of green oolongs, but i continue to try them to see if there are any that will change my mind. I have tried a large number of milky oolongs, with Mandala being one of my favourites.
This though? it’s different from most milky oolongs. Alice’s notes indicate that it’s flavoured so I’m going to hazard a guess that’s why. all milky oolongs i’ve had previously were unflavoured. over all this isn’t bad, but there’s a little too much in the way of “green oolong” and not enough delicious creamy milky oolong for me to really get behind it. I’ll likely have another cup of this and share the rest with one of the tea girls who prefers green teas :)
