309 Tasting Notes
Cup of the morning. Generous sample from Stephanie – thank you so much.
This is my first guayusa tea. The smell is incredible. It’s like blackberries and citrus. Stacy is famous with her flavorings. I do like it on a hot and humid morning when you don’t want anything heavy but need some boost. I added tiny bit of maple syrup and it made it shine. I wouldn’t mind a little more of lime. Prepared according to Butiki parameters.
Thank you Stephanie, it was fun
This tea is delicious . I have to admit I’m partial to Yunnan blacks. Very rich and satisfying. Malty, creamy, some chestnuts. As cooled I’ve got some slight spice which was welcoming. It’s fun tea and I’m glad I picked it with my recent order. Made it western according to WP parameters. I have to try it gongfu , my usual style of brewing Yunnan blacks.
Finally I got my WP. I was so excited to try this particular blend. It’s new and sounded dreamy from the description. And it is . This chai is very smooth, spices are balanced and so fresh. It is strong. After few sips I decided to add some milk and touch of maple syrup. Delicious. Second resteep@ 4 min as good as first one. What makes this chai special is wonderful Bi Luo Chun base which never gets astringent or bitter.
I prefer it with some maple syrup, no milk needed.
This is a sample from Stephanie – thank you so much
5g 100 ml gaiwan 200F
I’m going to continue later. I love it. It’s nice, sweet, juicy bell peppers. There is slight cooling sensation in after sip in earlier steeps. I wonder if it continues later on. Enjoyed it a lot.
Thank you Stephanie for the great experience. I would buy it if it would be some specials
Bad Steepster, just ate my note :(((
Ok, this tea is a free sample with the purchase – thank you Scott
5g 100 ml 212F
This tea is very rich. Dark burgundy color and very thick, almost viscous.
Woody and sweet but not overly. Some plum and cherries detected. Very strong sweet aftertaste
I had a very nice gongfu session and will continue tomorrow .
This tea was kinda disappointment . I probably didn’t brew it right. 195F 5 min produced slightly chocolate flavored water. I just couldn’t figure out parameters fr my Steepster fellows. I had such high hopes. Oh well…
I have 1 tsp left to experiment.
Thank you so much CharlotteZero for sending me many amazing samples. I don’t see your notes lately, but I hope you will come back. Miss you <3
This tea is a super generous sample from Terri HarpLady – thank you .
OMG. This tea is something I experienced only in some sheng. Besides being sweet and fruity ( I pick plums mostly), some nuts, it’s rich with eucalyptus notes. What it did to me is I have cooling sensation in my stomach. This is nice feeling on a hot day. I feel very peaceful that even my kids don’t bug me. Prepared gongfu 4g 100 ml 205F
Wonderful tea, I think I want to buy it right now.
Thank you so much Terri for giving me a chance to try it.
Sample size. This is nice, especially after heavy lunch. Roasted oolong, chestnuts, subtle sweetness. Would be perfect if they serve it in Chinese restaurant, many times tea is just gross there. I liked it.
Resteep was good and I decided to add tiny amt of maple syrup. Worked perfectly taming charcoal flavor.
