Recent Tasting Notes
This was different. The taste was somewhat surprising. I didn’t know the blended flavors and so I tried to guess and ended up with caramel oranges. Which I’ve never had before. And don’t think I ever want to have. (On the plus side, hubby really enjoyed this a lot – so I suppose it is a personal taste thing).
This was my first experience with a pu-erh tea. I steeped it for about 4.5 mins at about 200. It has a pretty interesting flavor to it. You can taste the earthy flavor it has to it. The smell (while not bad at all) has a small seafood smell to it. This smell does not transfer (completely) over to the taste. Do not get me wrong this is a pretty good tea, but if you do not like earthy teas this one is definitely not for you.
After this cuppa I’m officially out of this tea from my stash…bummer…it was good while it lasted. Altho I have read some other reviews here about the “cigarette” type taste…I have noticed this with my last cup – I oversteeped AND added more than the suggested amount of loose leaf to the steep…I can see how some may pick up the smoky tones…I do believe, or at least with my latest experience, the cigarette-type taste (or aftertaste) may come from steeping too much – too long…suggestion – steep less for a shorter time – as I haven’t noticed that until now…might be more pleasant for you. I did, however, enjoy my overall time with this tea and will, again, revisit it, someday…
I always like to see what others say about the teas I have tried and have retried. Just noticed Mindala’s note about my postings/obsession with Foxtrot. Okay…I’m ready to admit it…I LOVE this tea. There I said it! :P I’m not usually into herbals unless its peppermint which this blend does have. And I am not usually a fan of chamomile ‘just because; but again this blend has it and it works well. Among other things. I think I’m a fan purely because it’s a creative blend that makes you ponder “just what it’s all about” and then you move on to pondering other things. Let’s just say it makes everyone a poet who partakes. ENJOY!
Very heavily flavored. Spicy, almost like a chai. A bit overpowering for me – I think if I were in the mood for something very strongly flavored, this might have hit me better. As it is, it’s a little too strong for me to want to enjoy frequently. But I can see the attraction of it. It’s a good tea, just not my cuppa.
