335 Tasting Notes
I enjoyed this sample for 2 days.
I love it. First of all id like to report that i brew sheng with boiling water. yes. its much better because it doesnt taste like mellow smooth green tea anymore. i dont want mellow green tea, i want something special, some punch. it wasnt bitter either because thats the tea or maybe my taste buds changed. either way im happy sheng drinker.
First several steeps were amazing. what would you say to potato chips flavor but without grease? sweet, slightly bitter, delicious. some slight tobacco. those flavors of chips and tobacco were very interesting and made me hungry. Burger would be the best but i had only chicken in my fridge. anyway its too late for after midnight snack. Time to go to bed before i get some other food cravings.
Lovely Stephanie sent me a sample. I tried it 3 ways
First – plain. Robust and smooth, some florals and malt. Perfect breakfast tea , not on empty stomach. Egg and cheese on a crossaint.
Second- with condensed milk. While it was yummy I probably overdid it. Because when it cooled became too sweet for my taste. I’m partial to condensed milk and can eat it right out the can. Gross, right?
Third – splash of milk and maple syrup. Dessert in a cup. Let me just say this tea was gorgeous chocolaty color. Not every tea takes milk well. Sometimes it looks murky and disgusting . Not this tea. Fabuloso with milk. Maple syrup just tiny bit rounded out florals and malt.
To conclude, no additions as a breakfast tea and milk + maple syrup as afternoon
I resteep it @5min. Was very satisfying cup, almost like original
This is my last sample from GTT.
I love it . Super tasty

This tea is so flavorful, smell is amazing. Plums, longan, honey and chestnut( I think) or some kind of other nuts(?)
Delicious. Lingering aftertaste long after finish my tea.
I am so glad being able to try, thank you so much Green Terrace Tea.
