5930 Tasting Notes
sipdown! this was a free sample with my american tea room order and not something i would have chosen for myself given that i strongly dislike coconut in 90% of all teas.
I can’t rate this tea, because i could barely drink it. the coconut smell was too overpowering, so i managed a sip before having to give up. What i will say, is that this DOES taste like macaroons. If that’s your thing, it’s worth trying out :)
Sipdown! While this tea is rather bland in it’s flavour profile as terri mentioned, I actually am really enjoying it’s refreshing taste. It’s similar to when you have a cold glass of fresh spring water. I’ve never had a silver tip oolong (is that really a thing?) but this was an interesting one to try. Oh how i wish i could spend a weekend or more just running around the uk and france buying tea sigh
something about this one is just not sitting right with me. I feel like this is probably much better than it’s coming across for me. It’s a darker roasty type oolong without that familiar oolongy taste that i dilike in roasty oolongs..but there’s something in the background that i am just not loving. wish i could figure it out. Not rating this one since i’m fairly certain it’s just me.
soooo not a sipdown but OMG, i forgot how delicious and wonderful caramel matcha smoothie/milkshake type drinks are. I really wanted a milkshake today but that’s not really doable since i’m not feeling too hot and ian is sick. So i hauled out the blender, tossed a bunch of this in with some ice cream, milk and a frozen banana… soooo good. i think tomorrow i’m tossing in reese’s pieces in to the mix to see how delicious and wonderful that will be with the chocolatey peanuty goodness. mmmmmmmmmm!
sipdown! I’m trying to offset all the black and oolongs i’m drinking today with a few other teas (and water!) lol today is a great day for not leaving the house…a)it means i’m close to the bathroom and b) my other half is sick and i am fighting whatever he has. So i’m drinking LOTS of fluid and resting…which means watching bad tv shows and also doing a bit of work.
This is a light tea, slightly floral but not enough to push it over to the category that i don’t like, Thanks for the sample terri!
SIPDOWN! you know what’s fun? mixing up the teas you’re drinking even though they taste nothing alike lol oopsy… so anyway this tea? it’s slightly floral…a little grape like and with a bit of sweetner it’s like the memory of ice wine. Over all not a bad little tea that i’m glad i got the chance to try, though don’t feel the need to purchase :)
not a sipdown! I tried this one in because i wanted a bit of flavour, without having to look through samples that i didn’t set out last night lol. Overall, so far, i’m underwhelmed. I think i need to overleaf this a bit. Mostly it tasted like a green oolong. As it cooled, more of the orange started to come through but the almond side of this is missing. Luckily i have enough to make another cup in the nearish future to see if i can get it right and have a tastier cup!
sipdown! i brewed this one alongside the other honey oolong from this company to be able to compare them in actuality rather than from memory… THIS ONE WINS. oh man…this has got the sweetness of the other one but there really is this caramely taste that accompanies this one. I actually would consider putting this in my cupboard… no idea how hard it is to get these teas here but i’ll have to look into it. thank you nofars and terri! yum!
