81 Tasting Notes
I call it Jasarrific! Its jasmine cup of tea and to have a sample of this decent tea really gets me to envision myself in a jasmine bloom! The green tea was spot on with classic pairing of nutty notes accented with floweriness and hint of sweetness. It can however be a bit to bitter or really tangy if he greens are brewed too long, but overall its a nice tea best enjoyed hot or cold!
This is another tea that I have tried from a sampler kit I bought a week ago from a whole foods mart. I got the pick me up of the Ceylon, the richness and character of a Chinese black tea , but the vanilla was found lacking:( I like the tea but certainly a more pronounced vanilla flavor that can level with the tea is perfect! Malty and a bit piney with vanilla goodness!
I got myself multiple samples from a Whole Foods, out of the 6 this tea really stood out the most! Its a good example of a union of harmony between a delicate flavor and the brightness of tea, and it is quite re steeped making it quite a buy! The flavor profile is a cross of near hibiscus thanks to the sunflower bits, giving the tea a flowery smell and a slightly sweet and tangy taste. The rhubarb gives the tea heartiness and while the tea blend brings the liveliness out of it. I certainly would want more!
I got several teabags from a friend of mine who ordered it straight from paris. I personally have not been to well acquainted with Mariage Fieres teas as its quite rare outside the US or elsewhere without ordering online. Its certainly a fine treat as the tea itself is quite in harmony with the bergamont and mint which really complemented each other well. The first sip was like a rush of cool breeze in my mouth and a citrus finish, the gunpowder definitely gave it a nice calm feeling. I feel an urge to hug my friend for this generosity and certainly shake the hand of the Mariage’s tea master!
All week long I was have an urged for matcha since I did not have any last year. It certainly a treat parting from a Trader Jones and having one served hot just soothes after a hard day. Its really tasty kinda like sugarcane minus the intense sweetness but grassy and vegetal. Its another fine product of Rishi and the tea producers!
Another tea that first introduced me to chai and its wonderful spiciness! To me its simply wonderful on the first sip, the spices did not throw me off but instead welcomed me with open arms! I knew then chai was the perfect match for me and mostly certainly important an proper introduction to Indian cuisine which I’m madly in love for! Its just so nurturing about chai and if its sweetened with some milk its almost like heaven itself…awesome!
