6852 Tasting Notes
this was another from dexter I’ve reacently fallen out of love with Peach, which is funny because that’s the first “flavoured” tea i really gravitated towards. This particular peach isn’t bad. I like that it’s blended against a yellow tea, making it a little different than some of the others that i’ve had. That being said, while it’s a nice tea because i’m not in love with peach currently, it’s not a hit for me. HOWEVER, for those looking for a light peach tea, this one is pretty nice :)
Stacy sent along a sample of this one for me to try :)
this is an oolong, which is not usually my faouvite, so bear that in mind. This particular oolong is halfway between a green oolong and what i call a roasty oolong. :) there’s a efeling of “green” to this one but it’s not over powering, while on the other hand there is also a more bread/nut like taste? it’s also got a bit of a juicy feel to it, though not like say a dragonwell :) Ont the whole, this was quite nice, though i’d rather see it in a blend than drink it all by itself :) Worth checking out for those of you that like oolongs!
dexter sent this one my way with her mini brithday package for me so i figured i’d give it a whirl asap since it’s a small one to drink up and i wanted a few straight teas this morning before i get in to some of my other samples.
This tea is delicious! It’s god a good heft to it – thick and malty while also having a sweetness to it. i am a fan! I may need to add this to my eventual tealux order if i ever get my cupboard under control. No spending this month!
thank you again for the generous sample green terrace tea! I need to try the other samples you sent soon (aiming for this weekend!). I am still a fan of this tea, though it may not be my favourite honey black tea. I like that there almost seems to be a hint of something in the background of this tea beyond the sweet honey taste. Maybe it’s plum? either way, this was a great cup to start my morning off :)
Yay for limited edition teas! I’m actually surprised there aren’t more reviews of this one, though maybe everyone’s just hoping it will last until the sale on Friday.
1st off – this is a REALLY pretty tea. i really like it. 2nd – this is a coconut tea (typically not my favourite but i want to try ALL of stacy’s teas!).
Stacy’s facebook comment mentions that “This tea uses a Bai Mu Dan base. The predominant flavors are coconut, 2 types of vanilla, and banana but rose, cake, tangerine, lemon, and cream flavors were also added.”
What do i taste? Coconut and…vanilla..and fruitiness, that i would call citrusy, but i’m not sure i could place the actual lemon and tangerine. For those that dislike floral teas, i would say that even with the rose in it, it’s not a floral tea. This is more like a coconut, creamy tea with pops of citrus….at least that’s what i’m getting tonight…but i’ve got a more to play with and and i’m a little curious how this would take cold brewing :)
