6828 Tasting Notes
Terri sent more of this my way and I think i love it a little more than the first time. Bumping the rating up a bit but i am going to pass the rest of this on to someone who hasn’t had a chance to try it. Sharing is caring! This + maple made my day when we went out to the nerd store to pick up a game!
mmmm i like what this one does to my mouth :) It’s a little like that refreshing thing that happens if you use SCOPE…though this is nice and not as harsh as that intense mint flavour. I like this one better than the 1001 nights. Something about the white tea base softens everything and blends it together just a little more nicely. I don’t often NEED a mint tea in my cupboard, but this one would be really nice, especially in summer as a cocktail i think :) thanks for sharing terri!
i tried this one alongside white nights as they are both very similar in their ingredients apart from the white vs green tea. I have to say, i like this one less. there’s something about the green tea that doesn’t seem to blend as nicely with the peppermint and the lemon. It’s a nice enough cup but if i had to make a choice, i’d pick the other! thanks for letting me try these terri!
another one from terri, though indirectly from Charlotte zero. THIS is fantastic. Golden Needle tend to be hit or miss with me and this is a hit! I am a fan of this..i ended up drinking the cup up and hitting the bottom of it without even realising it. Thanks so much for sharing this with me terri. i think it might need to go on the list for a future order :)
terri sent this one my way the other day so i thought i’d try this out especially given all the rave reviews. I’m not sure if i did something wrong with brewing this but this really isn’t a tea i enjoy. I know i struggle with darjeelings on good days but yea. sooo not rating this because i think people who enjoy darjeelings would like this, but it’s not for me. something in the taste is just a little weird.
made a cup of this tonight on the stove just for fun. It was nice to try but there are others i prefer. I find that i don’t like it when the clove has a presence in the chai. That being said, the ginger aspect of this is quite tasty. It’s one of those middle of the road chais that i think might be relatively good in the long run. Except it’s spring….soooo in a few months lol
Final Count: 190
HA! if this keeps up, i might actually get through my required sipdowns for today and tomorrow. I’m hoping i can manage that, if only to give me a bit of a jump start to the week. Not much to say about this that i haven’t already said. It’s the closest thing to a watermelon tea that i’ve had…sweet and juicy and i like it hot and cold!
Another one from terri. Sadly, now that i’ve had the pumpkin ginger tea that she shared with me, all others fail in comparison. This is a nice ennough tea…a little heavy on the clove but still good. I’d put this as more of a pumpkin spice tea than i get anything out of it that is pie like. That being said, it just can’t compare to the other one…that i’ve hidden away with my anxi shou. it must hide! for a no good very bad day when i need a smile.
