1774 Tasting Notes
MissB had this yesterday and it reminded me that I asked Sil to add some to her order for me, and then I hadn’t tried it in the month I’ve had it.
And everyone just GUSHES about how amazing Mandala teas are!
So I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m on my third steep in my 16oz mug, and will be going for a 4th fairly soon. It’s not as rich as I had thought it would be, and I was initially shocked by the puerh taste, but then it’s been a long time since I’ve had puerh so that’s not that surprising. It’s dark and earthy with a nice rich chocolate taste to it. It’s really amazing. Seriously. It’s not that often that I’ll drink 64 oz of ONE tea in one day. That’s saying something.
And with that in mind, this is by far worth the price. I’ll have to try some of their other puerhs. I’m just happy I started with this one (I could only justify buying one, but I think this was a great choice).
Thank you again VariaTEA for sending me some of this. I know I was complaining for a little about not being able to find this ANYWHERE in stores so I was really grateful for the sampling of CS tea bags!
And this is really good. I always cheat with tea bags and throw 2 in my 16oz cup just to make sure the flavour is strong enough, and it was the right call here. I really get Sugar Cookie from this. Like, actual cookie and sugar sprinkles. Amazing!
I’ve got 2 more bags of this that I’m excited about.
Thanks VariaTEA for this! I forgot I had it when I implusively bought a sample of this on the weeknend. Whoops! But since it was in my spreadsheet twice this counts as a sipdown (162!) AND lets me try a tea I was curious about.
I think I should have steeped this longer – it smells amazing! Strawberry and cream and wow! Sadly, the taste is much milder than the scent suggest.
I do get some strawberry and cream. I just wish it was more. I’ll have to remember to try steeping for 7 min when I have the other sample of this!
I keep forgetting about this one and I still have about 3 oz of it left! That’s at least half of it gone at least!
This has a dash of milk and a decent amount of maple agave in it. YUM.
I really need to drink a lot of this done before spring because it’s best in the winter cold, and I don’t think it’d still be good for next winter. It won’t be hard – I just need to remember how good it is!
Who doesn’t like smoke and sugar and maple?
