I classified this one as “unknown” the other day because I hadn’t yet verified the vendor—but this is it.
This is a satiny white tea you can taste. The blenders are pleasantly light-handed on the chai spices, which give it a great October-evening personality, but don’t overwhelm the light tea.
For my Steepie buddies that love subtlety in their cups, this would be a great fit.
Another unmarked baggie, but we’ll presume it was this one; same work friend has shared some other Remedy Teas with me.
A tea fail morning. Couldn’t get the eyes open, family talking to and over me while getting ready, so I let this go so long that not even a sploosh of half-and-half could counteract the bitterness. User error, not tea quality.
There is some good berry potential in here; it’ll just have to wait for a morning when better attention can be paid.
Work friend shared a generous sample of this one. It is gorgeous. You could put it in a jar and stare at it all day, it’s so colorful and zazzy.
And for a white tea, it does a good job of making its presence known. First cup was at work, so heated unevenly and with a bit too much water, and I still got a nice fruity-pie kick. Sweet but not tart.
Next cup gets more attention, less water, and is expected to be great.
I drank a cup of this on the way to work yesterday. I was expecting a big bang of licorice flavor, but was slightly disappointed. Yes, it has a nice, mild licorice spice mix with a nice sweet after taste, but I can find a stronger licorice taste in the Stash Licorice Spice tea. (I absolutely love licorice, if you couldn’t tell) I think I will use a higher tea to water ratio next time….
Picked this up a few weeks ago. My first impressions were that it was pretty subtle…too subtle for my tastes, but after several trials, I found that I was steeping it at too low of a temperature. Once I did this, the flavors really came out. VERY strong floral aromas (Lilac, orchid), light body, and a subtle floral, slightly-sweet taste. Overall, a good, balanced tea, but would prefer it to be a touch bolder.
My first non-floral flavored white. The coconut is definitely the main flavor; I didn’t really taste any vanilla, but it may have been the underlying bit that tied it all together. Overall a nice tea, the flavor didn’t dominate to the point where I couldn’t taste the tea. Has more body than a straight white tea, but not bitter. I didn’t follow the steep instructions on the label because 4-5 minutes seemed a long time for a white tea.
Interesting green. It smells wonderful! Lovely toasty white chocolate/vanilla aroma, both dry & steeped. At first I thought the green tea taste was oddly separated from the rest, but as I finished the cup it blended together nicely. Sweet, slightly creamy, but I might try this with creamer next time to bump it up. However, it was fine without any additions.
Not used to greens myself. Used about the recommended tsp to 8 oz ratio. It brewed up very light and seemed to lose the incredibly fragrant quality the blend itself had, but still smelled just enough. The taste itself was perfect; not overrun by cloying flavorings, and not bitter at all from the green. I’m really quite pleased with this, it’s a delightful treat! No need for sweetener.
Well I’m going on a very last minute backpacking trip this weekend, the good news is I didn’t have to run to the store and got my gear packed in just over an hour, not bad. Now I sit here decompressing with my dinner of pita bread, hummus and a shou puerh. This is sad given the fact that I have some delicious greek stuffed chicken sitting in my fridge that I made the other day, but there are some days that you are just too lazy to use the microwave. Yeah, I’m that guy.
I’m debating about continuing the story of everyone’s favorite traveling tgy, but its late, I’m getting up early and I’m not sure that anyone besides me reads it. Good thing I like to hear the sound of my own … keystroke? So tgy shall wait till next week.
Oh right I’m supposed to be reviewing a tea, I knew there was a reason I was here. So I love pu. Yeah I just said that. While I generally prefer sheng, there is something enchanting about shou’s. Delicious earthy flavor, rich deep intoxicating smell, and sultry good looks. Yeah I think they may be some of the most beautiful teas I’ve had. A deep rich almost purple color. Sometimes I forget how much I like puerh and since this is the only loose one I have its the easiest for my lazy butt to brew. Therefore when I haven’t had pu for a while this is usually the one that reminds me, “Hey moron, remember me, I’m kinda awesome.”
I wouldn’t say this is a particularly stellar shou, but then again I haven’t had that many that I would say are. It does however have that amazing rich earthy flavor profile and an incredible nose. Plus as my first pu, it holds a warm fuzzy spot in my heart.
Well now I saw stick some fresh leaves in my gaiwan and retire with my book. Goodnight addicts.
4 grams leaf. 120 ml water. 10 to 60 second steeps. 205 F.
This is what gives pu-erh a bad name. I bought these really not expecting much but more a a gimic gift for some friends that I am trying to convert to tea. And they suceeded in being just that, a gimic. This is a perfect example of what many mini toucha’s are, dust that has been sweep up off the floor. These are shu so you can’t screw them up as easily as a sheng but still.
They are fun to introduce new people to tea but other than that really not worth your time.
205F. 1gram tea per 30ml. start with 15 sec infusions.
