309 Tasting Notes
I’m surprised it wasn’t in my cupboard, I bought it last summer during Anniversary sale. I’m sure I got lots of unaccounted teas. Time to do inventory, my cupboard is exploding( nothing new). Today I decided to compare it with thepuritea Red Dragon Pearls( got few samples just before they went out of business). I always feel sad when small business companies close down.
Well, I had total of 5 steeps 1,2,3,4 and 5 min apart side by side. It’s cocoa, bready,sweet with some slight peppery notes at the end. The Teavivre was more flavorful and potent. By 3rd steep thePuritea exhausted itself and was watery.
I’m sure if I wouldn’t compare them and had only thepuritea on hand, I would like it a lot. But Teavivre is a winner
Meh. I don’t know if its my taste buds or this tea is not flavorful enough for me. I cannot taste lemongrass at all. As it cools I find coconut and some faint ginger. Smell is coconut. Very weak. I tried to sweeten it w/ sugar. then added some milk . just didnt work for me. This was a free sample with the purchase
I had a craving for a mint tea after all heavy and spicy food we had. Very refreshing. I like Moroccan tea in general but I think this extra lemony flavor adds something special, sweet citrusy flavor. I think it’s balanced and pleasant. Probably will be excellent as iced tea
It’s bitter and I don’t want to drown it in milk and sugar. Tried diff parameters. At Steven Smith the lady suggested to make it 12 oz water 1tsp 5min steep. Bitterness decreased but it was kinda diluted not enough flavor. I prefer H&S Nahorhabi Full leaf Assam
