42 Tasting Notes
I just entered Tea-Ecstasy!!! Made a little blend of 2tsp of Golden Monkey and 1tsp of Citron Sonata. The Sonta takes a little of the edge off the Monkey and boy is it GOOOO-OOOD. I should note that I steeped in 16oz of water.
Started the day with some Gunpowder today. Even though I have much more experience with Hodgdon H380 gunpowder in my 22-250 handloads…this gunpowder is almost as warm and smokey as squeezing off a round at 300 yards.
I have a Jasmine Oolong, Moroccan Mint combo job going here. Not too shabby, but a little weird. I am giving it a low rating, it might be growing on me, not sure yet.
This one came as a sample. I like it, don’t love it. The flavor isn’t very strong even when I steeped it longer than normal.
My first tea and maybe my favorite. This has turned into my afternoon blend about an hour after lunch. Nice and relaxing. Tip Top Tea.
I just returned from Teavana with this little number. Steeps to a deep copper color and even straight up is the B-O-M-B my fellow tea players.
My sales person said I could make a “Naughty Monkey” if I added some milk and sugar. I can imagine that being killer, but I am drinking for health benefits AND taste, so I don’t want to go that route. Ill-behaved primates aside, this is one good tea.
Quickly becoming my favorite. Only got it as a sample but have pretty much cashed that already. It has a smokey type flavor I totally didn’t expect from a green tea. Great straight up but even nicer with just a tiny bit of sugar.
Love this one. Got it in a sampler but will likely buy some on my next shipment.
