4046 Tasting Notes
Backlog from this morning. Thank you Scheherazade for sharing this with me! This is a super wonderful delicious tea. There’s no bitterness to this and it’s very much what i want the majesteas leslievill strawberry patch tea to be. This is the taste of fresh juicy delicious strawberries! now of course my delemna is whether to have the last of this cold or hot. oh man.
SIPDOWN! Figure i might as well finish this one off today since it’s the straight cacao that i prefer. Not that I have any of that one left but hey, not to worry! Still enjoying this one and it’s nice to start my day off with a few good teas (i’m ignoring the first two i drank today). Costco trip later this afternoon once my other half is off of work. I don’t really want to go since it’s a little chillier out there today but i figure i’ll just pack some tea and get through it.
choco mint! thank you :)
Decided i would try this one western style today and save the last bit to try gonfu another time. I think this tea is over my head. Or i’m having taste issues and don’t realise it (stupid allergies) Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely tea but as i go through the steepings, I am not getting nearly anything that others have. Overall this pretty much tastes like a fine black tea. I suspect that is in part to my preference to strong bold blacks. I’ll save the rest for a rainy day and see where that journey takes me then.
backlog and a sipdown from yesteday!
I’ve finally figured out that with della terra, i much prefer their vanilla + mint teas than their caramel teas. The caramel just isn’t strong enough and has a bit of an artificial taste to it that i’m not a fan of. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t occasionally pick up one of their caramel teas up occasionally in a sampler pack, but if i were to pick up an ounce it’d be a vanilla/mint tea for sure.
Backlogging from yesterday and a sipdown!
Had a large pot of this last night before we went out to visit friends. It’s been a bit cold/windy the past few days so this was perfect in the evening while my other half and i took a few moments to just sit and be resting. I will for sure be adding this back into my cupboard in the fall as the leaves start to turn and the season gets colder.
I could have sworn that I’d logged/drank this before today but apparently not. Or i simply forgot to write a tasting note. Thank you Ysaurella for this sample! Another Marriage Freres tea to knock off my list :)
I don’t think i’ve had chestnuts in a really long time, so i can’t say that this tastes like them. However there is a deliciously pleasant “nut” and vanilla flavour to this tea that is wonderful! I also really love the way it smells. I really like that there is no bitterness to this and there’s almost a sweet fruity taste that disappears almost right away when you sip it.
Thank you again for the wonderful swap Ysaurella
