1681 Tasting Notes
And that’s another matcha gone! (81) :O I try to drink one cup a day (a big one with 2 scoops!) and only keep 4 flavours open at a time to help out with the freshness.
What did I think? I like this – it’s creamy and sweet and enjoyable for times I don’t want to be overwhelmed by flavour (i.e., pumpkin matcha, or bubblegum). Would I get it again? Maybe. There are so many other options out there, but, I would’ve say no to more.
We went to the zoo today and I rushed out the door without any tea and while we had a great AWESOME day, (especially because no one was there!) I’m totally drained and in need of tea.
I wanted something fantastic, and this is it.
I can’t believe JustJames sent a sample of this as I would totally be tempted to hoard it. :P OTOH, when you have something fantastic it’s exciting to see how others like it too. Either way, THANK YOU. :P
And so, how to describe this? I wish I hadn’t drank all of this today in a way because my head isn’t quite able to describe this.
It’s liquid moonlight. Vanilla dancing with cornflowers. Soft perfume floating in the air and a touch of sweet blackberry fruit to give it some weight.
I had Adagio’s Jane Austen Mafia yesterday, and this is the grown-up version of that. Superb.
And here’s another fantastic sample from JustJames. The base is light and delicate in a way that I associate with french teas, while the smell of violets pervades the cup.
This is an enjoyable cup, but not one that I would go out of my way to pursue – I just don’t think I’m THAT into floral teas. Still, I won’t say no to the occasional cup.
