597 Tasting Notes
This is SO good. So so so good. It actually does taste like an almond cookie, creamy and a bit sweet somehow. I think a bit of sweetener and milk would make this into a legitimate dessert. I just got a sample’s worth, but I will absolutely be getting more.
Dropped my phone in a sink full of water today. Luckily only for a few seconds, and it is chillin in all of the rice I could find in a plastic bag…here’s hoping it recovers. I can’t afford to replace it.
This is tasty – I am glad to have a bit of a break from teaching, as student teaching is now over, so I have days where I can resteep a bunch of times. I am at my parents’, so my skills as a tea brewer are being tested a bit. I only have my kettle that boils water so I estimate temperature, and there is no water filter so I am aware flavors might not quite be true.
That might be the case with this one, which tastes predominately mineral with floral creamy notes too. It got more floral and less creamy with each steep, and I steeped it three times before being done with it. Overall, I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t super special.
This was good, but not very original. Most herbal teas I’ve had use mint to kind of cover up what I assume are more medicinal, less appealing flavors. I do like mint, but I wasn’t wow-ed by the flavor. As for the relaxing benefits, I was already pretty relaxed as it was right before bed. I didn’t have trouble falling asleep…but I don’t have trouble with that too often so I am probably a poor test subject. Glad to have tried a sample though.
I really like this – it has surprisingly low astringency, as most assams are rough on me, but it is very strong for me to sip plain. It tastes best for me with a dash of milk, so the nutty malty flavor can really come out and shine.
This is delicious – it is very creamy, with a hint of floral. I gave the second steep to my aunt who has never consumed an oolong in her life, and she was very impressed. It was her first cup of non-teabag-dust tea, actually. I think this one made a very nice first impression. This one is right up my alley too, and it is clear there are lots of steeps left in it.
I am trying to drink up the assams, because this subscription is really letting me know that assams aren’t my thing. I do enjoy them with milk…but that really kills any nuances in flavor. I enjoyed this very much with milk, and it was undrinkably strong and astringent for me without.
