965 Tasting Notes
This is pretty refreshing, although I oversteeped it a bit and the rooibos is really strong. Noticeably stronger than the black tea at least. Aside from that I do get a bit of creamy coconut and mint and it’s quite enjoyable.
I should really try this iced though. I have a feeling drinking it warm isn’t doing it justice.
ETA: The creamy mint notes linger long after each sip…. Mmmmm…
Mmmm… Thanks again CrowKettle for getting me to try this tea! :O Now I know I love Yunnan teas. I even over-steeped this one and it was still great, albeit a bit malty. (Sidenote: albeit is a pretty sweet word eh? :P)
So this was a sipdown. I know I’ll need to replace it, but maybe not with this one. I have had better Yunnan’s, although not from companies that are as easy to buy from as DavidsTea. Yunnan reminds me of Zen’s Phoenix Pearls, which reminds me of Verdant’s Laoshan Black. Yunnan is the poor man’s Laoshan Black?
Oh – I’ve spent more time here than I have on facebook/twitter combined. I <3 Steepster!
This was a sadder sipdown! I really learned to appreciate it, but I resteeped it twice and savored it. Don’t need to replace it but maybe… Someday.
Sipdown! I enjoyed the last of this in the afternoon as I’d had too much caffeine in the morning. It was good, but not one thing I need to replace.
I’ve been too busy to log all my tea, but this was a sipdown. A fantastic tea too! As soon as I get my coupon from Verdant I’m placing an order for 1oz! :O
I’m getting apple butter from this one. Wow. I didn’t have that before, but I brewed this western style. Gawd, this is so good.
This was the tea that I drank the most of today, but today was my daughter’s first birthday and she was getting over a cold so basically between that and the ongoing crowd of people, I wasn’t able to let go of her the whole day. So, I couldn’t really make a lot of tea. :| I’ll live – it was a great day overall, and the baby felt better during the evening so she could visit everyone else.
I can drink all the other teas later!
This was in my Amoda box! I finally got around to reviewing it after packing half of it up for TerriHarpLady.
Now I almost wish I wasn’t sharing it!! Bahahahahah. (Not really though – I have some excellent samples coming my way).
I was surprised by this. It’s smooth, yet astringent in a good way, bold, and a touch smoky! I should have had this in the morning, but I’ll resteep it and stay up instead. It’s almost a little creamy too? Wow. I’m happy I gave the Amoda box a try!
It’s not Christmas (obvs), and it’s not a really great morning tea (in my head it’s more for afternoons or evenings), but I like it, and I want to have it now. I only have about 2-3 cups left! :O
No. Just, no. This isn’t for me.
Maybe it’s the green rooibos? There’s some notes running underneath that I don’t like at all.
21 to go and I’m at 100 teas again!
