4729 Tasting Notes
SIPDOWN! I forgot i had to add in 2 butiki teas to my cupboard so there really is no likely way i’ll hit 200 teas this weekend – a more reasonable goal is probably 210, so i’ll aim for that. I didn’t brew this traditional style – i wanted to see if this would hold up to my usual brewing and it did! Thank you nicole for sending this my way. I’ll like pick up more of this at some point from either S&V or H&S. It’s a pretty decent addition to my cupboard for those days when i don’t want an overly bold tea or a malty one. I’m interested in trying it “traditional” style as well some day.
Had a cup of this one today as i need to work on drinking my older teas. Thankfully my teas are all still less than a year old, but there are a few that are getting up there and this is one of them. I always forget how tasty this cup of tea is. I really need to compare it to lupicia’s “lychee” tea that i have in my cupboard to see how different they are and which i like the best. :) still enjoying this one! love the lychee flavour
Into the swap box this one goes. It’s not a bad tea but the matcha really doesn’t add anything to the taste as far as I can figure out and it’s a pretty “average” genmaicha. there are a number of others i would drink before this one. Again, though, that’s more of a personal preference than this tea being a “bad” tea. If you enjoy genmaicha’s this one would probably be a tea you’d enjoy. I, on the other hand like them on occasion only, and therefore want to stick to the truly exceptional ones that i have had :)
So it turns out i like green mate better than roasted mate, but still not so much. I tried this today while trying to get ready for the day. While it isn’t nearly as yucky to me as roasted mate, it still has an odor i don’t like and it a pretty “meh” cup of tea. Into the swap box it goes in case others want to try it.
last tea of the evening…wanted something that i knew i would like and still work towards my goal. This, along with raspberry cream are probably the two 52 teas that i have that are hardest to drink up since i know they’ll be gone when i’m done. One of these days i WILL remember to try this as a latte, but tonight is not the night. I really do love this blend and thank you nicole for adding to my stash of it haha :)
