3045 Tasting Notes
pretty sure i don’t like this tea. I accidentally let the cup cool as i was distracted when i had it, so i’ll give it another shot. that being said, not much about it made me want to drink it once it had cooled off. That’s ok though, as i think i’ve gradually leraned that tealux = straight teas for me.
Sipdown! This is another tea from the lovely dinosara and man…this is delicious! I really am loving this one – i wish i had a bit more to send to gracebtlb as it might just fill the figgy void i know she has. This is a medium bodied tea, that tastes just like black figs to me. It’s like a fruit garden and reminds me of biting into a fresh fig. I love it! thanks dinosara!
sipdown! this is a pretty tasty yellow tea. It’s not overly strong. I wish there was a bit more sweetness to it, but it’s not too bad. There’s a bit of fruitiness to this that is nice, though as the sup cools, that blends into the background of things.
YAY! 200! now to get a few more in to account for the verdant blends i’ll be getting in a couple weeks.
This is uh…an interesting looking tea. I’m going to have to go with Terri on this one… i put a small taste into my mouth and then promptly had to spit it out. Ew…this is uh… not good.
sipdown! I think i need to get my hands on a few more norbu teas. This is a lovely tea. This is a tea with an earthy taste. there’s some sweetness to this as well, and it reminds me of something that i can’t quite place.
I’m so glad i bought an ounce of this before my sample arrived and i’d even tried it. This is the perfect fall/winter tea for me. It’s like a chai but then it softens as the vanilla comes to the forefront. Later, as it starts to cool, i can taste the base coming through more strongly. Lending an almost chocolatey sort of vanilla blend.
I bought this when i was in victoria this summer, hoping that it would be more like the other orange puerh that i tried from…shmiracles i think it was? In any case, i was really looking forward to that puerh with the subtle orange flavouring from the mandarin that it was packaged in. The dry leaf certainly smelled that way, but once brewed this tastes mostly like a woodsy bold puerh. Not a bad cup, but not what i was hoping for.
sipdown! this is a pretty good average russian caravan. This is not their smokey version, which suits me fine this morning. It’s a refreshing tea without the boldness that i like in a morning tea, so this would like be more of an afternoon tea for me. Overall a decent blend
Sipdown! this is a fantastic tea! It’s slightly malty with a bit of fruity deliciousness. There’s a sweetness to this that i am really enjoying that goes hand in hand with the slight citrus and background hints of slight bitterness. thanks so much terri (and nofars)!
this is a tasty smooth light brew. i love the honey notes in this and how the brew is just an overall pleasant cup to start the day.
