Recent Tasting Notes
this tea tastes simply magical.
drinking this tea is like witnessing the birth of a unicorn, and said unicorn looks into your eyes and says it’s first words…and it’s your name. oh and for the purpose of this review, i’m going to say unicorns are born without the horn because…ow oh and i’m also going to say that they’re totally real. totally…
sidenote: forever nuts brews PINK and tastes like an apple pie baked by jesus himself.
Now that my cold is well and truly gone, I can actually taste my oolongs again. Milky and I spent the drive home together. Oh how I love this tea. Milky, buttery, creamy, smooth. Then a little bit of floral and a hint of green. I need to go do steep 2 now. I think monkey picked and milky are neck and neck for my fave oolongs. Time for a steep off!
Mmmm….wow! I bought some of this today at the Westboro Ottawa shop. The smell of the tea was heady and aromatic in the store. I couldn’t quite believe this was unscented, as the tea had a delicious condensed milk smell with very little green to it. A colleague at work came up with the same description “condensed milk” without prompting. Maybe we’re psychic…or maybe it is just very accurate.
This evening I pulled it out and started steeping. The first infusion was very pale and very fragrant, although the liquor was not nearly as full bodied as the aroma. I expect this often on a first infusion, and I was looking forward to the second.
Second infusion – WOW, This was it. A delicious, sweet, milky oolong like you’ve never tasted. Some floral coming through as undertones, but primarily sweet, milk, and some caramel. The liquor is rich and coats your mouth like a good scotch.
I’m now on infusion three, and the milkiness has yet to betray me. I may be in love. swoon
My only criticism – the steep time on the bag is far too long and it doesn’t mention multiple infusions. (Mine was about 90 s to 2 min at 90 C – ipad is not happy with the slider bars below).
Blarg. Spent last night in the company of someone I don’t particularly care for, and ended up drinking far more liquor than intended in an effort to make them easier to deal with. It didn’t work. Luckily I had the foresight to drink water before bed, but I still woke up this morning with a deep desire for cold pizza and Detox tea. This is one of my favorites, but I always forget about it until I’ve got a hangover HA! Hell, I was drunk when we bought this tea on Saint Patrick’s Day a year or two ago. But it does the trick and makes me feel better.
Still love this one. Spent Thursday night erm “hanging out” with a friend from college and did the same thing tonight. Pair that with all of the deliciously terrible for you food we’ve been eating, and my body is about to go on strike. So yesterday I spent rehydrating with vitamin water and powerade, but when the “hanging out” started, I had a cup of detox by my side. It was an experiment to see if it would help…it didn’t. I’m ready to get home and curl up with a big mug of this and sip my hangover away.
