6601 Tasting Notes
holy mother of something…THIS is orange! It kinda reminds me of orange syrup…the stuff that is the concentrate of the orange pop you get in restaurants. a little more sour, but over all generally that was the taste. I’d probably love this much more if i could’t taste the stevia coming through, but even at that it was still a really tasty cup :)
free sample from my order. I was looking forward to trying this one to see whether it stodd up to some of my other shou favourites. I have to say, i’m sort of glad that it didn’t. While it was a pleasant enough shou, it was pretty middle of the road and generally average. on the earthy woody side and smooth enough in it’s finish. nothing to write home about.
free sample from teavivre! thank you angel and the rest of the teavivre folks!
this one is not my favourite green from teavivre. it’s slightly vegetal but lacking in that really FRESH! taste that i’ve come to love from other teavivre’s green teas. this was a little green bean like…a little grassy and overall pleasant even if it won’t be a favourite of mine. Thanks a bunch teavivre!
hot brew – there’s a cold brew in the fridge waiting for me as well..
this is sorts of like pineapple gemaicha. Toasted rice, green tea, pinapple chunks….all smells point to yes! However, brewed up, it’s a little too sweet for me with a slightly burnt taste that comes through along with the juicy pineapple. Overall, not a bad little tea but i’m curious about the cold brew :)
tea from beelicious! this was an interesting one that she added to our swap. I’m all for surprises so i didn’t really know what to expect when i brewed this one up. this is essentially smoke + eucalyptus. This almost works for me…almost. The smoke is more campfire smoke than the more subtle smoke that i love. however, it’s an interesting blend and i’m glad for the chance to try it. :) thnaks bee!
