8162 Tasting Notes
mmm dexter was kind enough to rehome this one to me as it wasn’t her cup of tea and i seemed to enjoy it the last time i had it. I have to say…yes. Bumping the rating up a little because it really is a great smokey tea with maple. this plus maple syrup is really damn good and was perfect yesterday in the COLD! haha
Final Count yesterday: 166 (plus the travelling tea box)
ugh i hate steepster somedays. and my computer. lost my notes on this one…suffice it to say that again, angel is awesome. However, i prefer the other teavivre puerh that i had today over this one, while this one is still a decent enough tea…it’s just not what i would prefer given the choice between the two :)
Final Count: 167
Thank you stephanie for sharing this one with me via Terri :) I’ve been wanting to try this one forever but since i know i’m not the biggest sencha fan, haven’t gotten around to placing an order. With butiki gone, i need to find a suitable replacement for my pineapple tea that doesn’t have coconut. blech. this one is pretty good. It’s still not as pineappley as i want it to be but it IS pure pineapple and green stuff lol. I mean, i can taste the sencha, which is a good thing as far as teas – you want to be able to taste the base imo…but for me, i’d love this just a little more if the base backed off a bit and let the pineapple be stronger.
All that aside though, this might be a good fix for those times that i just want pineapple damnit! :) Thanks for letting me try this one stephanie!!
noms. this is one from MissB and it’s super tasty. It reminds me of another tea though, that i can’t place and it’s driving me crazy. Maybe one of bayswaters teas? This one is less nutty though…and more sweet, maple..that’s been watered down. It’s not maple syrup…it’s more like something with an echo of maple on it. Delicious though! and a rather enjoyable flavoured cup! thanks missb!
Pretty sure this one was from kittenna this one is potent – super grape smell. brewed up, this is grapey but there’s a floral scent under it. it tastes like a floral sort of champagne like tea. I LOVE the smell but the taste of this one is better in the after taste than in the actual sip. lol Not a fan but i’m glad to have tried it.
