293 Tasting Notes
Still roasty , mellow and delicious.
While sipping it I am thinking of Steepster, people here and tasting notes.
Since I joined Steepster 2 years ago a lot of folks here who have just “disappeared” and I was thinking of their last note. Did they know it was their last one? Did they feel sick and tired of writing notes ? Did they decide to only drink tea for themselves ? Did they have a major issue ? No chance to know the answer.
I’m feeling myself more and more lazy with my notes, saying less and less. Am I tired of teas ? I feel more like I would like to spend more time with some teas probably rather than trying news so often.
Sorry I am boring tonight :(
Thank you so much Sheherazade for sending me this lovely Oolong.
This is a delicious Milk Oolong but I am a huge fan of this type of type of teas so it may biaise a little my opinion…no it doesn’t !
Pretty pale yellow liquor so typical of milky Oolongs.
This one is less strong on milk and butter notes than several others I had and it is interesting as the flowery notes are emerging on the top with a mellow flowery texture.
It doesn’t beat my dear Theodor Milky Oolong but it is very very nice tea in a different category.
Courtesy of Sheherazade I am having this famous between famous tea.
I was a little suspiscious after reading so fantastic reviews about it and other really not.
My opinion is in the middle : this is a pleasant tea with this base I don’t like but the flavours are really working for what they are. Creamy, rich blueberry. Mellow blend.
Nothing to shout on the roofs for me but it makes its job.
Thank you Sheherazade for sharing !
I joined Steepster in 2012 and at this time everybody was drinking and reviewing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. I added it to my wishlist. And only requested a sample 2 weeks ago to Sheherazade who so kindly shared some with me.
It evocates christmas to me, holidays. Cinnamon for sure is for something in this feeling.
As for other Della Terra Teas I am not conquered by the black tea base kind of neutral, ordinary base. But the flavours seduce me. This is a lovely cookie.
Cooling it works even better and becomes a velvet cookie. Yummy.
Nicole sent me a big package of yunnans as I can taste several of them. Until now I didn’t really explore this type.
This one is delicious : malty, smooth. I am afraid being too much urban to detect the fresh brushed horses unfortunately but I get a kind og leather note.
Leather is a note I particularly appreciate in perfumes (like Calèche of Hermès or Cuir de Russie of Chanel). No exception for tea.
Thank you Nicole for sharing this yunnan with me.
Unfortunately this one is clearly not for me : too strong for my taste, almost like a coffee.
It has also smocky notes but not the ones I appreciate.
And even if I didn’t oversteep it at all (less than 4 min) I get a certain bitterness at the end of the sip.
It’s just not my kind but it would be a perfect morning companion for whoever likes strong & very malty teas.
