4 Tasting Notes

Thought I was looking at a black tea/flower mix when I opened it since I hadn’t personally ordered it but got it from Ashmanra in a box of tea gifts. When I saw the steeped color, I knew it was indeed a green tea, but decided to enjoy it anyway, especially since I had just dumped a one-steep-too-many purr-eh.

Light tea, and though I steeped it for five minutes instead of three, it was not bitter. I’d pair this tea with a banana muffin to increase the sweetness. That’s just me.

Eight ounces of boiling water; 1 1/2 teaspoons of tea; three minutes. I added about a teaspoon of black sage honey and a couple of tablespoons of whole milk.

This is tasty and light. Coconut Truffle is a nice afternoon tea. I love the fragrance of toasty coconut wafting in the air as the flavor crosses my taste buds! The chocolate beckons for some spice so next time I brew it, I will add some red pepper flakes.

Eight ounces of boiling water; five steeping minutes.

After waking up feeling like I’d become a sword-swallower in my sleep, I thought this would be a wise tea choice. I had drunk plenty of powdered ginger teas in the past, so what-the-hay, Blue Ginger made sense. I’d already soothed my throat with half of a banana popsicle so my palate was optimistic.

The tea is nice and dark. The ginger isn’t overpowering. The tea has a strength to it but in no way is it bitter. Wondering if there is another steep in this bag.

Second steep was lighter, but still plenty flavorful.

Greetings! Ashmanra is one of my favorite tea geeks and she speaks highly of you, therefore, we’re probably friends already and we just don’t know it.

Thank you. She’s a hoot and a holler! Looking forward to the adventure!
