3157 Tasting Notes
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 :)
this tea is growing on me. I am quite digging the smokey notes of this, though i do prefer it with a little maple syrup. It’s not in your face or imposing but it does have a smoothness to it that i like. I’ve got to get my butt in gear and get some running around done so this is doing the trick of waking me up!
thank you dexter for sharing this one with me. While this tea is on the sweet side, it’s also on the wimpy side. the flavours aren’t super strong, and there’s a bit of astringency to it that leaves my mouth a little dry. Not a bad tea, but there are for sure others that i’d prefer over this one most days.
Tonight, I am digging this one a little more than the. Orange cream. I’m still a fan of both over lemon chiffon though :)
Mmmmm….had a cup of this tonight. Still delicious, still enjoying it :) evening watching movieswith my other half + tea = yay!
Finally had this on its own instead of in milk. Yeah nope. It was much improved when I added a splash of toasted caramel liquor but not by much. Tis is for sure a milk type latte tea!
Cup of this tonight with a little added puerh to make it more tea like. An improvement for sure but still nothing I love. Cold brewing the last of this to see how that works out :)
sipdown! (174) I had another cup of this today and it was pretty tasty. Less malty than a number of assam i’ve had with a mild bit of astringency. Over all a decent cup. Thanks for sharing Alice!
sipdown on this one! Terri sent this my way and while i was drinking it, all i could think of was that THIS would work with the ginger much better. This is really nice – i think it would work well as a base in a number of blends :)
