Recent Tasting Notes
Welcome back, Golden Monkey! You’re still a little more bitter than I’d prefer, but that’s probably due to your high caffeine content, so I’ll let it go. This time.
You’re also a little more flavorful than I remember, which is a good thing. You’ve got a well rounded flavor that’s enhanced by a pleasant aroma, which makes me wonder if I didn’t steep you properly the last time we met?
Either way, I’m happy to get to know you again, and look forward to our next encounter.
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.
I was a little unsure about this one – the smell struck me as odd though I couldn’t peg why. But the taste was wonderful – velvety is the best way I can describe it. Brought to mind dark chocolate – more so in richness and texture than actual taste. I thought it was pretty good when I started drinking it, but the more I had the more it grew on me so, by the end of my travel mug, I was quite the fan.
