Made this as an eggnog latte with a marshmallow drink topper and though the marshmallow and eggnog are contributing a great deal of sweetness to help bring out the vanilla, the creamy orange is the finishing star of each sip. It’s lovely though I don’t know if I need to have it again. This one cup can make for a nice little fling that’s fun while it lasted and will be fondly remembered. Thank you Sil for the share!
Well, I can definitely say that this one is A LOT better hot.
While I’m still getting the same sour grass notes and buttery flavour I disliked so immensely in the hot cup, they aren’t anywhere near as intense and are mostly masked by much more pleasant fruit flavours. For example, there’s a red fruit sweetness that I’m sure is the goji and rosehip and the finish has a lovely floral and fresh orange note.
There’s probably no future where I would seek this out again after the initial awful introduction to it – but at least I’m finishing this off in a way where I’m neither dumping it out or gagging. That’s a win.
Thank you VariaTEA for the sample!
I was pretty sure I’d tried this one before, but looks like this is my first tasting. I must be mixing up the name with one of the many other French teas I’ve had the fortune of trying.
I cold brewed this one, but I kind of regret doing so because I really, really didn’t like it. I had an impossible time getting over the intensely buttery oolong that engulfed each sip paired with this really off putting sour note at the finish of the sip. Most of this got pitched, honestly. I think hot prep would have been better; I doubt it would have drawn out the same level of nasty from the base. But I guess I wont know until I put that theory to test; it may be a while though…
I need to forget this experience/distance myself from it first.
Flavors: Butter, Grass, Sour
So I don’t think I know what 1/2 the ingredients are in this tea but what I do know is it tastes like oolong and not much else. I suppose that is okay for some but I am just not a lover of oolong so I am thinking this is probably not for me. Still, it is always fun to try new things so thank you Sil for the opportunity!
Now back to studying…kill me now :(
pulled this one out today to try since it’s been a while. Was blown away by the orange smell of the dry leaf. Brewed it’s a creamy orange black tea – i suspect the vanilla is softening the orange flavour. It’s quite tasty and very much seems to me like something that should be had when there’s snow on the ground – a cool winter evening, where the stars have started to come out and there’s a fresh light snow falling.
20 away from my sipdown goal that i was aiming to get to by the end of august, but i’m making progress – last month i was 27 away heh. So there’s still hope that i can wrap things up by the end of the year, which is really all that matters anyway. I ended august at 90, which is still pretty good considering unplanned paris shopping splurges and butiki closing.
This one is from paris and i am still loving it. I’m nearly through the bag and that’s alright because i have a few other fruit teas that i can drink if this awful heat carries on in to september. Here’s hoping for a cooler day in EIGHTEEN DAYS though… even if it’s just for that one day :)
yay for engagement pics, wedding shoes and things starting to finally come together. One more thing off the list, so things are going well. This tea is becoming my go to work tea when i want something a little fruity but also richer than a straight up fruit tea. Enter…caramel fruit tea lol loving it!
noms. Another tea from Paris. I did my best to try and pick up one or two herbals while i was there since i knew i was short on evening teas for when i didn’t want caffeine. this is a really nice fruity, caramel blend. there’s some hibby in here, which has never bothered me so i’m ok with that :) there are vanilla notes here too…which soften the fruit and make it a really nice summer sort of tea.
From Sil, this one is an oolong with various fruits. It has a tart & tangy lightly sweet character. There is a vegetal quality to it as well. I’m tea starved, I haven’t had a cup for hours, so at this point I’ll probably drink anything, but luckily this is actually a nice cup.
Not somethings I’d stock, but nice to try.
Another one from Sil (206)
I only need 6 more sipdowns in the next two days! HOLY MOLY. I’m totally amazed.
And this puerh is rather good. It’s very earthy but I can taste a little bit of sweetness to it. It makes me think of caramel more than vanilla fruitiness, but it’s still good. I wouldn’t crave this often, but it’s a tasty.
Tried this one again tonight and i’m still not sure how i feel about it…on the whole, I probably like it less than i think i should. LOL I really like the puerh, which makes me want to try more teas from GC, but the additions are not up my alley. However, as always, i am super thankful to Ysaurella for sharing with me :)
