5357 Tasting Notes
this was one of those random purchases from Stacy where I was trying to do something with the dollar value and needed another tea to balance things out. Since i have a ton of teas with lots of caffeine i picked this one for when i have people over who don’t want any. This is pretty nice. It’s nothing with a WOW factor but then i wasn’t expecting that. It’s a nice, calming evening tea for relaxing with. If you like chamomile tea – this is a nicer version that your generic type brand from most places :)
So i think I’ve had maybe one puerh to date and it wasn’t that impressive. I ordered this one on a whim to give it a try and see if i could get into it or if it was a type of tea to cross off my list.
The aroma off this tea while steeping is one i can’t quite place.If my other half was here tonight i’m sure he could tell me but I can’t figure it out. It’s an aroma that left me a bit worried as to the taste. I should know by now that Stacy hasn’t steered me wrong yet- even if i don’t LOVE it, i won’t hate it.
I’m going to have to have more of this… There’s a bit of fruitiness but it’s almost like the taste of the texture prunes have. yeah this doesn’t taste like prunes..but like dried prune’s textures…when they’re all mushy in your mouth. It’s…really good but it’s different. there will be more tastings to come, perhaps on the weekend when i can give this it’s full attention. :)
Totally found a wee bit of this left in my cupboard the other day and made this into a cold brew! It was super tasting after getting home later-er this evening and being on my own to try and refrain from making another 129692829743 tea orders for cyber Monday. It’s hard! There are so many teas out there I want to try…I really need to make a conscious effort to do a few more swaps in January to cross things off my list that way.
Ok so I tried this again as a cold brew on a white thinking that might help. Not so much. I it don’t like floral teas. I’m SURE there is someone out there who would love this tea but it is not for me. At least I can say I gave it a fair shot and drop it into my trade box. Yes…I now have a box of teas I need to get around to trading lol
Soooo i feel bad that this is my 500th! tasting note and I don’t have much time to craft it at work today. Release weekend means that we’re having a few issues this morning :( However, i have to say, if you’re a fan of strawberries this is wonderful! I made this as my smoothie this morning and it was fantastic! It was like that perfect strawberry ice cream where the strawberry taste is GENUINE! not that artificial strawberry taste you get from “neopolitian” ice cream.
I picked this up as distinctive and it is pretty much spot on for what i’d want in terms of flavouring level.
mmmmmmmmm! Another winner from Stacy! I am totally digging this today as well. I’m a little sad that I don’t have any sweetner here at work as I think that this would be that much better with just a hint of sweet added. This is not a sweet tea…it’s blueberry…that kind of blueberry that is both sweet and sour. I am really digging this as a blueberry tea.
OMG. THIS…THIS is a wonderful tea! Seriously in contention with my other favourite blacks (Laoshan Black from verdant and Zhen Qu from Butiki). I could not get enough of this this morning…now that it’s gone i just wish there was more. Thankfully I have a bunch to drink through so a new order is not quite yet ready for me and stacy. heh I really need to get through a few more of the tea i recently (and not so recently) purchased from her. but this one…it’s wonderful!
