403 Tasting Notes
The first couple sips were very good but after that it lost its flavor. I was a little leery when I saw lavender in the ingredients. However, the lavender is more subtle. It’s there but doesn’t overwhelm or seem perfume-y. It’s gentle and soothing. I can’t rate it too high because, as I said, it seemed to loose a lot of flavor very quickly.
Mmmmm…. Yummmmy! Now you may wonder am I referring to Mal (from Firefly) or the tea. Ok, sort of both. The tea is smooth and lovely with a gentle touch of chocolate. I have really begun to enjoy genmaichas lately. The rice is really an interesting addition to the tea. It is interesting that adding the rice was a cheap way to extend the tea leaves for the less well off. Now it’s valued for its unique flavor. Anyway it’s a good tea and I wish I had it in my cupboard.
No notes yet. Add one?
Well, I know why I didn’t review/enter this tea before… I can’t find out anything about it. I spent so long searching that the tea has gotten cold.
It’s a nice tasting vanilla black. Very smooth. It has a nice mouth-filling taste throughout the whole sip.
Quite a nice tea but I have to stop buying so many black teas!. I’ve become more sensitive to caffeine and can’t keep drinking it later in the day. :-( It’s just that I like them so much lately!!
I am still loving this tea!
The problem is I am already running out because I’m drinking it so much. I think I’m drinking it just to be able to eat the brazil nuts after steeping. They are mostly full or half size nuts.Brazil nuts are my favorite nut. I’m pretending that there are no calories in the nuts because it’s a tea. I’ve been resteeping 2x’s . (It is always interesting to see what autocorrect does with resteeping: resetting, stepping, etc.) NayLynn sent me some tea with a sample of Brazillionaire . Yea! I am a lucky girl!
Another of my Small Business Saturday purchases.
Tummy is feeling a little wonky tonight. The mint and jasmine blend so well with the gunpowder green. Oh lovely!!
I bought this tin (3 oz.) to share with a few others but I may have to reconsider… do I really love my daughters? Do they deserve this good of a tea? Well… we will have to stay in suspense until closer to the holidays. Mwa ha ha! (How do you spell an evil laugh?)
