Recent Tasting Notes
Pu’erh teas don’t really do it for me, but I also don’t dislike them. I’m quite indifferent, I think. I’ll drink it, especially when it is citrus-y and flavorful like this one. I love how the citrus works with the earthiness of the tea, probably from the licorice root? I don’t know. It’s a very nice blend.
The second steep is considerably better than the first, as well. Much tastier.
Wow, interesting. I knew this was better cold than hot. I’ve hot brewed and then tossed in the fridge before. Last night I put 3 tsp of this tea and 3 tsp of cherry tisane (Wild Cherry – Teaopia) and 4 cups of water in the fridge to steep. I left it there for about 18 hours, and what I got is something between cream soda and cherry Kool-Aid. I think I overdid the cherry it’s almost drowned out the “cola” but I still get the “chemical” taste that makes it seem like soda. I can drink this, it’s not GREAT, but getting close to good.
I changed my rating from 1 to 36. I still think this is really nasty on it’s own, but I’m going to keep tweeking the cold brewing and see if I can find the right ratio.
I bought this tea when it came out and I loved it at first! Then I wanted more and they were always out of stock. Fortunately, I found some at a David’s shop near my house. Now, everytime I’ having this tea, I’m wondering why I wanted it so badly. It’s good, I still drink it, but honestly, I’m still searching for the orange and chocolate tastes. It doesn’t taste what it smells. But you can also don’t care about this fact and just enjoy the tea as it is.
This is PERFECT for me. It is exactly what I think it should be. I LOVE this tea. It’s earthy, it’s coffee, there is a bit of chocolate? or maybe caramel? something rich hiding in the background. I’m relatively new to the whole world of tea, I may not have the correct vocabulary to describe this, but OMG it’s good comes to mind.
I got a new job the other day and decided to celebrate by treating myself to copious amounts of tea! I ADORE mate (can’t live without those stimulants!) but was worried that the artificially flavoring would make it cloyingly sweet.
Scent: Tootsie rolls + raspberry flavored cough syrup + maple syrup. Yuck… its not very appetizing. Every time I take a sip I’m expecting medicine. Luckily this mate tastes completely different than it smells!
Flavour: its pretty decent, but not the best mate or dessert tea I’ve had. I honestly expected it to be better because of the rave reviews I read. Its smooth, chocolatey and surprisingly thin, with an artificial almond aftertaste that coats your mouth for a while. This would make a good dessert mate though, I’ll try it next time I get the munchies! I can see myself craving this on a cold, rainy morning.
This almost reminds me of a yellow curry dish that I buy sometimes. There’s no curry, but a lot of the other ingredients in that dish are in here (ginger, lemongrass, coconut). I don’t know if I will reorder this one, but I will certainly be finishing the bag in some capacity. I can imagine this would be delicious iced.
This does not taste like a pu’erh, and for me that’s not a bad thing. I like the bg fruit pieces and the softness of the white chocolate. This would probably make a great base for a tropical smoothie. I may or may not reorder this, but I’m certainly not disappointed.
At last, DT’s rendition of a coconut oolong. I appreciate how the dry leaf smells like actual coconut. Not artificial at all, and I can tell already that it’s going to be creamy. Coconut milk oolong, anyone?
The first steep was slightly floral with milky undertones. When I first tried this yesterday, I was a little unsure about it. The coconut seemed out of place for some reason. The second steep was better, creamier, and the coconut, warmer.
The second round this afternoon is much better. Again, the first steep is a little floral, a little milky, and the coconut is like true coconut shavings, slightly sweetened. The second steep is super heavenly. Coconut milky and buttery.
I’m loving that paradoxically dainty and rich oolong aroma paired with coconut.
