3083 Tasting Notes
In some ways i’m greatful for the excuse to try this again soon since steepster was down. I had this in latte form on the weekend and it was DELICIOUS!
First Review? Backlogging from the weekend so I’ll be posting another of these again. What i recall from this tea though, that it was a nice fruity tea blend. I would also really like to try this cold sometime :)
This tea goes by another name now on della terra’s website – orange brulee. THIS is more of what i expected from the orange blossom oolong that i had before this tea. Not a bad little tea. I’ll be reviewing this again though since with the steepster outage i was terrible at taking notes down.
Backlogging so my apologies for the crappy tea notes.
I was not impressed with this tea. It was bland, unexciting and tasted a lot like mildly flavoured water. I’ll try this again especially as I forgot to write down my impressions at the time.

This tea wasn’t in the database as near as I can tell so I started a new thread. The company isn’t in here either. So first and first! No steeping instructions on the website so I went for a lower temp and my usual 3 mins.
This is a light tea. There’s a bit of floral notes in this, but nothing overpowering. I don’t totally taste ‘pomegranate’ but there is a fruity taste to this tea. This has a nice light gold colouring to is as well. I’m glad a have a bit more of this to play with later. :)
So what I’ve discovered about good morning sunshine is that I love it cold brewed IF I use the left over tea from an initial hot steeping lol. This brings the intense lemon down a few notches and really makes for a nice iced brew. Pretty sure that this will be what I do anytime I make it hot!

So this isn’t a bad little tea. It’s the first gunpowder that I’ve tried and I like how the smoky flavour isn’t up in your face. I found it to be a nice black tea with a hint of smokiness at the back of the sip. Not sure if I’d pick this up as a regular in my cupboard but I would totally drink it again!

You ever have that feeling like steepster is eating your tasting notes? I’m sure i’ve had this more than 6 times(though most of my tasting notes count for twice that…even 12 seems low). Anyway sipdown for me on this one! also added some of my 50/50 caramel to this and did a sipdown for that one too! :)
Today is going to be a loooooong day. So I opted to start out with a nice session of laoshan black to kick things off. Again, this tea makes me seriously happy. I love the way it changes as i re-steep it. I hopefully have some friends coming over in a few weeks and i’m looking forward to introducing them to this tea because they’re always complaining that black teas are bitter and lackluster. :)
I’m hoping this will knock their socks off!
