Recent Tasting Notes
It’s alright… it’s not as sweet as I was hoping.
It has a smokey aroma that I’m not too fond of. The straight tea tastes alright, but again a bit too smokey for me.
Turned it into a latte, and it’s passable but I wouldn’t buy this again. Smokey aroma and slightly smokey cardboard taste.
Flavors: Pumpkin, Smoke
I don’t have a proper whisk (used a large metal one) so that might affect this review but: pleasant drinking it straight, a little grassy with no bitterness. It’s my first foray into straight matcha that’s not in ice cream form though, so it’s not as “sweet, creamy, delicate” as the description would have you think. But that’s just my beginner’s palate not appreciating this yet?
Mixes well into a latte… that’s probably how I’ll drink this.
P.S. Drink it soon after you make it! Again, probably an issue to do with lack of a matcha whisk but the matcha clumps back out of solution and sits at the bottom if you leave it alone.
It’s my first time drinking genmaicha so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Having my first HUGE tumblr of the tea and the verdict: I love it! It’s unlike any other green teas / teas. Smells and tastes like burnt rice. Although I have to admit the burnt rice taste seems to overpower the green tea. I could even see that there seems to be more rice than green tea in the can.
Nevertheless, this could be my everyday tea as it is light and smooth. Btw, I have the habit of just leaving my tea leaves steep while drinking it. While many may think that it gets too bitter if you oversleep, but not to me. For this tea, it doesn’t get any more bitter. May not be the correct way but who cares! As long as it tastes great!
Flavors: Popcorn, Rice
I have arrived home after Christmas holidays at my parents place. The first thing I did when I got in the door was put on the kettle to make some tea in my new teapot I received for Christmas. I have had this tea (Choconut Oolong) on my shelf for a long time – I actually have a tin of it, which is quite a lot. It is from Winter 2013…and we are heading into 2016…so yes, quite awhile. Since I got the teapot for Christmas though my memory was jogged of this tea, and a couple others that I haven’t tasted in a long while. I have been fantasizing about drinking it again and what the flavour was like. So here I am…sipping away. It is quite what I remembered, it smells and tastes very much like hazelnuts to me though I can also taste a roasted almond flavour. At the end of a sip I do get a very sweet hit, which I am not terribly fond of as it tastes a bit artificial. It’s still a relaxing and enjoyable tea.
I’m still pretty new at writing tea tastings so pardon if my descriptions are not very intuitive yet, I am still learning and developing my taste palette.
Flavors: Almond, Hazelnut, Sweet
Sipdown. Added the rest of sample packer to my steeper. I got a lot of artifical taste from this previously, so I added milk to hopefully mask it. It’s still not a great tea.
I stopped drinking rooibos a few years ago and I am now finding that I don’t care for it. Giving me weird woody aftertaste.
Flavors: Artificial, Wood
This is the 2014 version please be advised! It was a lovely little pumpkin spike cake tea. It had a full creamy mouth feel and such an authentic flavour. It was a surprising treat! I really enjoyed it. I believe it came from Marzipan in one of my first transactions with her. She really is the most terrific person, in case you weren’t aware. :0)
Flavors: Cake, Pumpkin, Spices
This is my staple/ everyday tea. I don’t use sugar in Earl Grey, so I have to steep this one a bit on the light side because it can go bitter if steeped for too long. The bergamot flavour varies quite a bit from one batch to another, so each new bag that I buy is a bit of a surprise. My daughter finds it too bitter, but I love it.
Advent calendar [8/24]
I moved back into my parents’ house in 2011 and promptly began my addiction to tea. This tea was one of my first purchases during that time period. When I found that today’s tea was Cherry Blossom, I had the most fantastic flashbacks to drinking this tea while at my first job in my field. This tea was one of my favourites from that time period. I can still picture drinking this out of my Bodum travel mug with the pumping lever.
I was so excited to drink this one that I probably steeped it for 30 seconds too long. I dumped out the pot and re-steeped it. While the original infusion would have been better, the second infusion was incredible.
Taste-wise, it’s got lovely hints of grass and sweet cherries with a smooth aftertaste. I really liked holding this one in my mouth in small sips. This tea was best as it breathed and cooled down to 40-50 degrees.
I think this is a tea I’ll have to pick up. I definitely need more of this one.
Flavors: Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Floral, Hay, Smooth
Day #4 of tea!
Finally, a black tea, haha. This one is a classic DT offering I think, and a solid flavoured chai. It isn’t my favourite, and I don’t go gaga over it when it shows up in the fall collection, but I do enjoy a mug of it every now and again . Clearly, since I saved some of my stash to add to the advent calendar.
