7538 Tasting Notes
this tea is all over the place. popcorn, apple bits, toffee, black tea, oolong lol… but it smells delicious. in the grand scheme of things, this isn’t bad but it’s nothing spectacular. The flavour comes across as an almost typical tofee flavoured tea. I’m not getting anything new from the popcorn, though there’s a hint of sweetness in the background of this one that makes the tea a little lighter than your usual black toffee tea. Not too shabby but not intensely amazing either :)
pulled this one out today to try since it’s been a while. Was blown away by the orange smell of the dry leaf. Brewed it’s a creamy orange black tea – i suspect the vanilla is softening the orange flavour. It’s quite tasty and very much seems to me like something that should be had when there’s snow on the ground – a cool winter evening, where the stars have started to come out and there’s a fresh light snow falling.
This is an interesting one. this comes to me from MissB and is tightly compacted. I let is sit for a while after a 10 sec steep. almost all the water was absorbed in to the cake. My first couple of steeps of this one, i was getting an almost menthol like taste…bordering on mint…but really faintly. it was a weird experience. the aroma of the tea however, was much more earthy/leathery like. Later steeps the tea was much more cedar and wood with almost an aftertaste of smoke but not strong.
this was an interesting tea and one i might consider purchasing in the future.
reposting this under the correct tea sorry about that Wymm!
sooo thank you Wymm tea for this sample! Sadly my other half thought he was being nice when he cleaned up the kitchen along with two of my samples from wymm tea. Luckily i had at least had a couple steepings of them. So without having run through the full round of this one – i found it to be a really pleasant puerh. It had a really nice sweet smell to it and the overall feeling while drinking this was that it was light, refreshing, not vegetal…slightly sweet with a slight edge to it that i was really enjoying. thanks so much wymm!
