670 Tasting Notes
I really really like this tea! It’s totally a taste of Fall! It makes me think of my yearly trip to Apple Hill, which is coming up soon! In fact, I have plans to go up there the weekend after this coming weekend! Farms with apples, apple pies, and other deliciousness. We are totally getting a whole strip of apple strudel this year! So, this tea is like a guilt-free version of all that! I will definitely be picking up some more!!
Yum yum yummy vanilla deliciousness! So glad I have a whole tin of this tea now! Although it does look so tiny next to the white teas. White teas are just so dang lightweight! The second steep was just as yummy as the first. Definitely need to remember to steep this one for 4 minutes to get the best flavor and not be afraid that the white tea will get astringent. It’s amazing!
This tea is confusing me. The shape of it is pretty cool. I put three spears in my perfect mug to steep. They take multiple steepings to unfurl. The first cup I had didn’t taste like much, but it did taste like an oolong. I just wasn’t sure what kind of oolong. I thought I was getting roasty notes, but then another sip tasted more like a green oolong. I’m in my second steep, and it’s kinda stone fruity, similar to a Formosa oolong I tried once. It’s not bad, but I can’t say for certain whether I’d pick some more up. Good thing sample sizes at Tealux are generous, because I’ll definitely want to try this one out again.
I’m not a huge fan of most green teas, yet. I say yet, because I hope someday to be more fond of them. I’m also not big on most apple-flavored teas. So why did I get this? It smelled amazing! That’s why! I was actually surprised how much I liked this. I think I prefer it to the apple cider-like teas. It must be the lack of orange. I didn’t get much of a pie crust note, but the apple is a nice baked apple flavor. Pretty darn delicious! Oh, and it helps that you can’t taste the green tea much. Ha!
Had another one of our chai outings with my coworkers today. This chai is so different than any other chai I’ve had. It’s really sweet. Makes me wonder how much sweetener they add, but it’s delicious! And peppery too! I was wondering today if anyone has bought this tea to make at home, and whether or not it tasted the same. Anyone?
One more awesome thing was that they are having a promotion, where a cup of tea to go is cheaper than usual! Nice!
