6170 Tasting Notes
SIPDOWN! (229) Happy to have made it under 30 before i leave for a week but it sucks that i really don’t have the effort/energy to put in to bringing tea with me and trying to find somewhere to make it. I don’t mind this one, but it’s not a re-order for me. I’m glad i had the chance to try it but that’s as far as i need to take it heh
thank you shmiracles! this was a tea i wasn’t expecting to like, as it’s a green oolong. So i’ve been putting it off until today. I had the tea earlier today that had osmanthe in it…so i figured today was a good enough day to try this.
Overall impression? Not too shabby. It’s not overly floral, which is a plus for me and it doesn’t have that weird oolong-y taste that i don’t like. But there’s also nothing here to really entice me to come back to it. I’ll drink the rest of my sample but nothing to be wowed over…but it IS another tea off my “ALL THE TEAS” list! :)
mmm i like the one. Especially when i get distracted and drink it lukewarm and the strawberry POPS and has an aftertaste of brown sugar. yep. I’m glad kittenna convinced me to get 50g of this even if it was a discontinued tea. At least i found another david’s tea i enjoy and it’s been fun drinking it down :)
SIPDOWN! (232) Guess my next goal is trying to get to 200 by the end of July even with my inbound orders. eek! I finished off the last of this one by dumping it into a pitcher to cold brew today. Mostly i just wanted something cool to be able to drink tonight while i’m testing over night. Another release…another sleepless night. I find that it’s hard for me to get around to hot brewing teas with releases, so i have a few cold brew teas on the go.
Still enjoying this one quite a bit, so i may need to pick up more someday.
i think i’m almost done with this tea, or it really is just a tea for winter with it’s spiciness. I had a cup of this one because kittena had made reference to French Toast possibly tasting like this one. It does smell like this tea, but the taste is less similar, though i understand why it would certainly remind someone of this tea. Overall, not a bad cup for this morning.
Thank you Cavocorax for sending this my way! Since kittenna suggested this might tastes/smell like frank’s pumpkin caramel cheesecake tea, i figured i might as well do a side by side since i had some left. Opening this package was like opening a package of caramel pumpkin cheesecake, only slightly different… This comes across as less french toast than frank’s pancake breakfast is to actual pancakes…if that makes sense. there’s cinnamon in this one and it’s more like a cinnamon cheesecake sorta black tea. i think i prefer pancake breakfast as my go to morning breakfast tea if i were picking on.
There’s no astringency to this like there is the potential for with the pumpkin caramel cheesecake…and while this does remind me of that tea, this is a smoother, less spicey tea in comparison. of course without the side by side comparison, i’m sure i would have thought the same thing as kittenna. heh
While not a bad blend, thankfully nothing i must have in my cupboard always. I’ve got another cup or so of this that i may just try as a cold brew for fun :)
