5925 Tasting Notes
i think that this tea is the correct one. KallieBoo sent these my way a while back and i haven’t yet had a chance to sit down with them. I’ve been drinking this over the afternoon while helping my other half feed the little one he’s looking after. I am apparently better at making kiddo eat solids lol I don’t have much to say about this one beyond it’s feeling very middle of the road for me. It’s not bad, it’s not knock your socks off…it’s just kind of there. being tea. neither FANTASTIC! or OMG GROSS… just there. Glad to have gotten the chance to try this, but nothing i need to restock. :)
i think it’s the stevia in this one that is off putting…if the ingredients are wrong and there is no stevia, then it’s something to do with the orange. I don’t hate this….but the artificial taste that’s going on here leaves me thinking there is much to be desired here. Glad i only had a little sample of this.
Bonnie sent these my way a while ago and i thought that they would be perfect for today. I’m working from home so i wanted to get around to trying a couple of my puerhs since i have the time. I THINK the ones she sent my way are these ones, and not the other entry but i’m not sure how to confirm. Either way, let me just say. YES! YUM! love these!
It really is like like sweet flavored kettle corn. I will have to look in to more of these since these are really tasty and could be handle for travelling.
mmmmm this is fun and tasty. I like the spicy edge to it that makes it interesting. Really glad that folks have been awesome and let me try out a number of WP teas before i went to place an order (there are a bunch of you! so thanks!) it’s like an echo of sichuan caravan…only not because it’s a totally different tea and has no puerh lol but there’s something there that reminds me of it while being very much it’s own tea :)
Final Count: 96
sooooooooo….i picked this one up, since a number of folks were fairl certain that this would be a tea for me. Also, the idea of pine needles in teas, appeals to me because i adore bellocq’s pine needle tea. What i failed to realise…and that’s on ME…is that this has a jasmine presence. As in…that other thing i dislike a lot…though not as much as bleramot…though sometimes MORE than blergamot lol.
Soooo i love every thing about this tea…. the needles…the initial sip..the brew… until the jasmine punches me in the face. I can probably finish off the rest of the ounce i picked up, but this is not for me.
Terri picked this one up for me and i’m ever so glad to have it. The only thing that makes me sad is that i like 2013’s harvest a little more, but i waited too late to try and place my own order. So now, the only version that i can pick up is this one. And it’s not bad…i really like it…but i recall loving the 2013 a little more heh. That being said, i love this and want more. Thanks so much for facilitating this one landing in my cupboard terri!
