Recent Tasting Notes
Note: I paired this with a tad bit of vanilla green
Smell: very refreshing minty
1st steep: very smooth, minty, refreshing, almost a smooth creamy quality. I guess the creaminess might be coming from the vanilla.
2nd steep: 85degrees, 2.45minutes, brewed then left in the fridge to cool here since it is such a nice sunny day today, tastes delicious and refreshing, just as good as the hot first steep!
The only thing that kind of turns me off of this tea is that it is mint oil and flavours instead of actual mint leaves. That is too bad
Just have time for a quick note before I take off for the airport and fly to Moncton for work. This is a very nice chai. I made it with 1/3 hot milk and 2/3 steeped tea with a couple of teaspoons of sugar. Nice and relaxing. I don’t find it much different from other chais in my stash; I was hoping for more of a ginger kick. Still, I enjoyed this very much.
This is the first decaf black I have had. It is interesting. The black base tastes a little different than usual blacks. I am certainly getting the peach taste in this tea.
I guess I just feel like something is missing from this tea. haha….I guess it is the black tea!
I still like it and will certainly finish the 25g I have.
Dry leaf smells like a fresh peach
Colour: light yellow
Smell: light peach flavour
1st steep: very delightful. I get the green and white tea tastes. At first, I could taste the peach and the chamomile seperately but then they blended together for a nice smooth taste.
2nd steep: 85degrees, 4minutes, less peachy and more chamomile taste with the white showing through more and the green less.
I can see this one becoming one of my favs from my local tea shop!
One thing that I love about green/white blends is that the second steep hardly ever tastes the same as the first. I like that!
This is nice and smooth.
It tastes very similar to DAVIDsTEA Read My Lips. I would have to say it is a little creamier but less chocolate-y that DT’s version though.
Colour: nice light brown/yellow
The smell is just divine…..and the taste is good too. Light notes of chocolate, I taste a little of the black tea, and the mint coming forward in each sip.
Backlogging: I finished this bag off and haven’t written anything until now. So I haven’t had it for awhile but wanted to log it.
This isn’t as sweet as I thought it would be. It is a tad bitter and astringent but I do really enjoy it.
It does smell very yummy vanilla.
This is a good walnut tea. A little tad bitter but that is the way walnuts are supposed to taste.
Adding a smidgen of milk makes it a nice treat but I usually like my teas “naked”.
I don’t really taste the cloves or orange, but I do taste the cinnamon and it is a nice compliment.
I cold brewed this tea last night to see if I liked it better this way. What a difference!
It is so much better now. Sweet and yummy enough to not need extra sugar.
I will certainly only make it this way now.
There is still a little bit of a strange aftertaste, but it is tolerable now.
Upping the rating significantly
This is a pretty good rooibos. I have no idea what buckthorn is supposed to taste like though.
The taste was slightly bitter but also slightly sweet, with a nice creamy feel.
I like it because it is so different from all my other teas and it is nice after a heavy meal day.
