1779 Tasting Notes
I’ve had bad luck with my last two cups not working out (dumped immediately), so time to try an Oolong instead of a third black.
This is just what I needed!
First steep was 90 seconds as the package directed. It’s very creamy, buttery and has lots of spinach notes. It smells like tasty oolong and the tea itself looks barely yellow.
Second steep: 110 seconds. It’s a deep golden yellow this time around, and the creamy butter has subsided. I’m getting spinach notes still and other oolongy flavours. Very rich.
Third steep: 120 seconds. It’s almost orange yellow, and very vegetal. Very enjoyable.
Roodswing came over on the weekend for a bit of a tea swap and she left me with some of this. It tastes exactly how it sounds, and I love it. Nice and simple – nuttyish vanilla goodness.
The company sadly is lacking ALL information on its website, but hopefully that will change as I’d like to look at future orders! (Yes, yes, they’re a “local” company, but Fort Langley is still a few cities over. :P
Not much time to rate this but I like this. It’s warm and toasty and a touch creamy and it does somehow remind me of chocolate. I’m happy I grabbed a little pack,and it turned out great even with DavidsTea standard brewing instructions.
Do I store it with my black or white teas? :O
I’m getting low on this and, as I’m making an order of Murchie’s 1894 blend for the book/tea club, I made a cup of this to see if I should re-order it.
Sadly – no. Not this time. It has some really good notes, and there is an interesting taste where the green and black mix together, but I just can’t make myself fall in love with this tea.
Maybe I’ll add some green tea to my order instead. :D The prices for 2oz are just SO GOOD.
