512 Tasting Notes
Trying this one next to the Pouchong Oolong tea to see which one of these straight teas I prefer as they both say floral to taste.
So, this one steeped up goes a orange-ish/brown. I like the colour, but I knew there was going to be some pow to this one compared to the other.
I found this one to be definitely roasted and very strong. I actually don’t care for this one at all. There is some floral to it, but I get a lot more roastedness and I almost get a bit of… bitterness to it. I think this one would be much better with a three minute steep instead of the four that I went with. I used the exact same water as the other tea, but this one just isn’t working for me.
Sipdown. Sad sipdown.
I miss this tea already. I made the last bit of this one as a latte. It didn’t really do it justice the way I had hoped, but what can you do? Anyways, I would love for this one to come back, but since it’s been a few years since it was out, I have my suspicions that it’s not coming back. :( So sad. oh well.
I have had this tea for a while and I really wanted to like it. It wasn’t a cheap tea.
So I got it and honestly I have not been all that impressed with it. It’s very weak watermelon flavour paired with floral, which is something I don’t care for. I have tried this one both hot and cold. Today it’s cold and I just… I don’t like it. Anyways, I think I’m going to say goodbye to this one even though I have a bit of it left. Oh well. Live and learn
Sorry for spamming with so many reviews tonight. Just playing catch up.
Either way, my husband got this one iced with agave and I really didn’t think it would be good. I don’t like pu’erhs that much so when he got it, i thought… no.
Anyways, it was actually pretty good. He like it a bit more than I did, but it wasn’t too bad. It was definitely a juicy orange but it did have the slight earthiness to it because of the pu’erh.
I got my husband a tin of it and hopefully he’ll enjoy it.
I don’t think I’ve reviewed this one yet! Okay, let me just say, I’m OBSESSED! Like, seriously. I bought a tin of it to take with me when I went up north last wee and I completely forgot it at home and I was so mad. Then, when I went to see my in-laws, I went and got some more so I didn’t have to go any longer without it. It’s just so amazing. I have to have agave in it to make it that lovely lemonade flavour that is sweet and yummy but oh man. SO good. I’m seriously over the moon for this tea.
Sound a bit of this one hidden in the cupboard. I knew at one time I had it, but didn’t realize I still had some.
Either way, I’m enjoying it as a latte. I probably shouldn’t have done it this way because A) I’m almost too full to enjoy this one; and B) I don’t like mint teas in latte form for some unknown reason. I really don’t know what that is, but I really don’t like them. They are fine and taste just fine and all that, but as a personal preference, minty lattes are just strange to me.
Anyways, will finish this one soon. Maybe I’ll try it iced? Maybe I should practice my cold latte making. That might make me enjoy it a bit more?
