7440 Tasting Notes
i picked this one up without trying it in my august uncommon order because of the description: Feels Like: morning in an old library i hate descriptions like this…how does that tell me what the tea is like? yeah it doesn’t. until you drink it..and then you’re like OMG i get it!!! i love libraries and reading…and i am super happy with this tea. Dry, this smells like delicious chocolate and guiness. brewed there’s a slight amaretto/marzipan taste underlying the chocolate. i love this one. I love it slightly less than the passage du desire, but this is still a great tea imo. Different, smooth..soo nice.
God i love this tea. It smells like caramel and smoke and bourbon and amazing ness. I forgot to add a little maple to this cup as i really think that would make it extra delicious. That being said, i don’t NEED it in this tea to enjoy it. It’s just a really artful blending of
smokey, without being too smokey.
I figured i’d have another cup of this before sending the rest over to omgsrsly to try. I am digging this one more and more. today i’m getting more of the juniper and lemon balm along with the thyme. I certainly is an interesting experience and i am looking forward to seeing what the future holds with these august uncommon teas.
mmmmmm noms. this is much more the strawberry black that i hoped the lamington one would be. not that i needed the lamington one to be strawberry black, i just wanted more strawberriness to it. i found it here. I also think the vanilla in this one does a great job os smoothing things out and making this feel like a strawberry cake. In other words. NOM
hmmmm this tea is much more like a cinnamon black to me. There’s a subtle element here that almost makes me think cookie, but it’s not super strong. What i think is a little funny about most of the new 52 teas i have is that the instructions for all of them basically say, wait to drink these. IE. when they’re piping hot, they won’t have the right balance of flavours. Not a big deal for me since i often forget to drink my teas right away but seems funny to think about. Overall, still enjoying this one.
Initial thoughts on this tea? MOAR BANANA… albeit once it starts to cool off, the banana does make a bit more of a mark in this one. my initial take was that it was too green oolongy for me, but as the tea cools, that OOLONG taste rolls away and blends more with the banana. i like that this isn’t fake banana – it’s ripe, tasty banana. noms.
I had this one yesterday and I think i nede to have it again before finalising my thoughts on this one. truth be told i was expecting the strawberry to be a little more present. The coconut in this is lovely, and i’m not a huge coconut fan. not sure i really got the whole sponge cake vibe but like i said, need to try this one again :)
