7966 Tasting Notes
Stacy sent this as a sample in our shared order and i figured i would try it again since i haven’t had it since my unfortunate time with it before stacy made me two friends. Well, i still don’t like this version lol there’s still that same bitterness that just feels off, though i’m thinking it’s more the base+ chocolate rather than the marshmallow…. now that i’ve had a chance to really get to know 2 friends for a while. :) thanks stacy!
So… Stacy did what she always does when i order from her (it’s been a while it feels like…though a mere 5 months has passed) and challenged me with the samples she included. I never ask for specific teas – rather it’s more fun to let her pick and choose unless there’s a really green tea i want to try or something. This was one of the samples…and my main problem with White teas is they typically taste like warm water to me.
This one has a smell that reminds me of really fresh green tea, but dialed back. Drinking it, it’s still closer to water (sorry stacy) but there ARE subtlties there that i can appreciate. i get no floral notes as stacy did (thank god), instead this is just a more mouthy feeling white tea. Not quite “green” but closer to that than warm water. :) Not a tea i’d need to order again at this moment in my tea journey but i DO like that i’ve gotten to try it. I also think that if you are a fan of white teas, you’ll enjoy this one :)
thanks for sending this one my way Cavocorax sadly i think the peanut butter fell out of the envelope on the way here because this is pretty much just 52 teas genmaicha. Seems others have found the same thing to be true, so at least im not alone. I guess on the other hand as well, i’m pretty picky about my peanut butter so maybe thats a good thing haha . ON the upside? another tea tried! woohooo!
Thanks again for this one keychange this is actual a backlog from yesterday as i needed a good ol’ harney tea when i got home in the rain. Moody grey days = SUPER bright colour wearing sil…so i was getting funny looks on the bus. and hten it rained…and i got wet and had this tea and it was lovely. :)
So i like this cold brewed the best. There’s something about adding a splash of sugar to this after it’s been cold brewing for a while…just the perfect combination of tasty drink + spicy kick at the end. think koolaid (but not super sweet) with a punch at the end of it… just loving it!
Another tea from this morning, but sadly, there is still a little too much left in this sample to burden cavo with…but maybe tomorrow! haha. This was a good strong cup for me this morning, and if it’d had sugar cubes i totally would have held one between my teeth while drinking it, JUST BECAUSE! Thanks again to terri for sending me all these lovely teas. I’m certainly looking forward to placing an order with the devotea in future because of them :)
and because it’s getting fun to say…. Another tea for Cavo! ah hah hah hah hah ha!
yes, had a lovely cup of this today and the rest of the sample is off for cavo to try since she needs more chocolate teas in her life. This one’s not too bad…closer to a milk chocolate than a dark chocolate and pretty tasty, though given the price and the distance, likely not one i MUST HAVE! Thanks again for sharing charlotteZero
FInally got around to trying this one today – it’s been one of the teas hiding in my cupboard from my last mini lupicia order with Cavo from a few months back. This isn’t half bad, though i think i want to try cold brewing it. I generally enjoy lupicia’s strawberry flavouring, and in this blend there is a hint of that sour note that rhubarb brings to the table…it’s just not overpowering of crazy sour. I think the cold brew might help to smooth out the black base in this case, which i think is what is making me not ADORE this one.
