5241 Tasting Notes
I received this in the mail today from lala as a surprise sample and knew i had to try it right away. I am generally not a fan of coconut, but i loooooveeeee mango. Since i’m under the weather today, the simplicity of a tea bag appealed to me a lot. Opening the package i was blown away by the coconut, which kind of scared me. But then, the mango creeped out. It smelled like fresh juicy delicious mango! I brewed this one up at a green eta temperature rather than the recommended black from the instructions.
Seriously? This is really good for a bagged, COCONUT, tea no less. Looks like others haven’t had nearly the luck that i did with this one but man i really like this. It would for sure be one that i could tuck in my drawer at work for those days when you just need a quick bag of tea.
Thanks so much for this surprise sample lala!
mini sipdown, in that i finished the first 50g bag of this that i picked up, so i’m not officially on the last bag. I think that if david’s ever discontinues this, i’d be inclined to pick more up…though that being said, i likely wouldn’t know about it until after the fact lol. I like the tanginess of this tea. I probably should stick to cold brewing this, since they’s why i picked it up but today i just really wanted that lime flavour.
Had some of this in the afternoon. I’m apparently sick – yesterday and today i’ve just been sleeping or lying in the bed a lot. I haven’t had nearly enough tea in my opinion but i wanted something a little different. I like this much better than the first time i had it. Maybe it’s because i steeped it for less time. I don’t really get chocolate out of this, but i do get mint and marshmallow, which is enough for me today. over all not a bad cup today.
I had another cup of this one since i’m very nearly through this small bag I purchased. There are new Stacy teas on the way though so I can’t complain :) I really like how dark and roasty this oolong is. It reminds me of coffee but not because it tastes like coffee. It’s just that is had that deep, rich, textured taste to it that really nice coffees have when you drink them black. Really happy i tried this one when i did. Still really digging it and loving the resteeps that change it as i drink it.
I could have sworn i’d tried this a long time ago, but apparently not according to steepster. Another sample from Terri which i’m glad to have. I’m not sure how i feel about this tea. Brewed, it smells like hazelnut. But drinking this i feel like there’s something in there waiting to jump out and bite me. hmmm i dunno. maybe i’m just in a weird mood. this DOES taste like hazelnut though. I’m just not sure i like the base it’s blended with..or something.
