5049 Tasting Notes
Stacy sent along a sample of this one for me to try :)
this is an oolong, which is not usually my faouvite, so bear that in mind. This particular oolong is halfway between a green oolong and what i call a roasty oolong. :) there’s a efeling of “green” to this one but it’s not over powering, while on the other hand there is also a more bread/nut like taste? it’s also got a bit of a juicy feel to it, though not like say a dragonwell :) Ont the whole, this was quite nice, though i’d rather see it in a blend than drink it all by itself :) Worth checking out for those of you that like oolongs!
dexter sent this one my way with her mini brithday package for me so i figured i’d give it a whirl asap since it’s a small one to drink up and i wanted a few straight teas this morning before i get in to some of my other samples.
This tea is delicious! It’s god a good heft to it – thick and malty while also having a sweetness to it. i am a fan! I may need to add this to my eventual tealux order if i ever get my cupboard under control. No spending this month!
thank you again for the generous sample green terrace tea! I need to try the other samples you sent soon (aiming for this weekend!). I am still a fan of this tea, though it may not be my favourite honey black tea. I like that there almost seems to be a hint of something in the background of this tea beyond the sweet honey taste. Maybe it’s plum? either way, this was a great cup to start my morning off :)
Yay for limited edition teas! I’m actually surprised there aren’t more reviews of this one, though maybe everyone’s just hoping it will last until the sale on Friday.
1st off – this is a REALLY pretty tea. i really like it. 2nd – this is a coconut tea (typically not my favourite but i want to try ALL of stacy’s teas!).
Stacy’s facebook comment mentions that “This tea uses a Bai Mu Dan base. The predominant flavors are coconut, 2 types of vanilla, and banana but rose, cake, tangerine, lemon, and cream flavors were also added.”
What do i taste? Coconut and…vanilla..and fruitiness, that i would call citrusy, but i’m not sure i could place the actual lemon and tangerine. For those that dislike floral teas, i would say that even with the rose in it, it’s not a floral tea. This is more like a coconut, creamy tea with pops of citrus….at least that’s what i’m getting tonight…but i’ve got a more to play with and and i’m a little curious how this would take cold brewing :)
Final Count: 142 – 9 days left to get to 95!
drink drink drink…. cold brew of this tonight because it’s HOT like SUPER HOT! like UGH hot…trying to make sure to have at least one cold brew in the fridge at all times for days like these. However, not much to say about this one because it’s just sort of a generic cold brew…not tasting like anything specific but also not tasting bad. sooooo yeah :)
stupid computer crashing, losing my post! let’s talk about this tea and how it smells AMAZING and how the chocolate and the strawberry and the espresso like flavours just work. I’m not sure if this will be one of my long term favorites from stacy but if you like dessert teas, this one should be on your list to try. Unless you hate chocolate and strawberries lol
