I wish that I had something witty to say about this tea…but it really just tastes like walnuts (and that’s rather delightful).
You can kinda taste the green base, but it seems as though it’s mainly there just to bump up the deliciousness and savoury goodness that is toasted walnut. I’m not entirely sure why I like this tea so much, but something about it just makes my tastebuds all kinds of happy.
I’m slightly undecided on whether I would order it myself, but it’s an enjoyable cup.
Mmmm, I love milk oolongs. Loooove. Of the ones I have, this is my least favorite, even though it is quite yummy, so I’m adding it to the sipdown pile. Especially since RiverTea supposedly has a great Milk Oolong.
Even as I was making it, though, I began craving Birthday Cake from DavidsTea, so I knew I wouldn’t be coming back for a resteep. But the leaves had barely begun to open after the first cup finished steeping, so I poured them into my Mason Jar to let them cold brew. I love watching oolongs unfurl.
The tea itself is just lovely. Lovely! The roastyness of the oolong and the creamy milk….guh. Hands down one of my favorite teas.
Backlogging a bit. Sort of grabbed randomly for a tea the other day – I wanted something black, and that’s all I knew. I remember this one being a luscious mouthful of fruit and melon, but this cup was a little disappointing. There was a faint aftertaste of berries and honeydew, but it was mainly just a cup of decent black tea. Not amazing. Just okay. A little dusty-tasting. Maybe I needed a longer steep time to bring out the berries.
Hm. How have I yet to open this? Okay, I will today. It smells of a bakery (odd considering the ingredients) and it does remind me of one as well. Have to admit though, I preferred this on the heavier side (suggested portioning is 1 tsp per 6-8oz. so I used 2 tsp for 16oz.) and only when it was almost cold. Hot, it was… meh. Ice cold, it got bitter. Warm on the cold side, it was… pleasant. Pastry-like. Rich. Sweet.
On a complete aside, I’ve decided to stop adding data into the database until everything gets added so that I can. Otherwise… I’m adding partial data, and that seems like a waste of time to me.
Another tea from the lovely MissB
A green, and I am not very green except for Oolongs.
The dry leaf is absolutely beautiful, mix of tea, flowers and berries.
The liquor smells cinnamon, light cinnamon. I didn’t want to take any risk , I am very suspicious with greens and steeping so it has been steeped for 2 minutes only.
This is a sencha and has the specific taste notes of the sencha.
I particularly appreciate the way the flavours are working together, I wasn’t expecting cinnamon and currant to pair so well together.
I am very pleased to have had the chance to taste this sencha.
The lovely TheTeaFairy sent this to me and wrote on the package “I’m pretty sure you’re not gonna like it – green with a kick”.
I actually didn’t mind it. Wasn’t offensive, nice green base with some spice. This style of tea will never be my favorite, but I drank MUCH worse today. This was just ok for me.
thanks to MissB for this cool sample!
i have had a thing for currants lately, and the formidable MissB must have noticed because my sample bag has CURRANTS!!! scrawled across the front!
what it should have said was ‘CURRANT CUSTARD, JAMES… WITH WHITE PEPPER SPRINKLED ON TOP!!!’ lol.
quite excellent. i prefer it more once it has cooled down and the flavours can all be detected, a titch of agave… wunderbar! i’ll buy this again.
unbelievably smooth, complex without being the equivalent of plaid with polka dots. very nicely balanced. i think whoever named it did the blend a disservice, the tea is much more complex than the cliche name, but isn’t that what the world has MissB for? =0)
I received a sample of this from MirandaGou in our swap. Thank you for including this one.
This was amazing! I am not sure what I was expecting based on the name, but it was a sweet green tea with hints of a nutty flavor. I really liked it! I have it on my list to order the Lemon Meringue. If I ever get around to ordering this I will add Walnut Ave as well. Thanks for letting me try this MirandaGou!
Thanks to Natlynn for this sample! I needed something with a little less caffeine but didn’t want want to go completely with out caffeine. I learned how to reset the Breville from F to C. Ok, I should have looked at the directions first instead of just pressing buttons randomly, duh:) The liquor is a lovely red, the dry leaf is fruity, the aroma in sweet and fruity with no sense of green tea. Which is ok with me. I didn’t sense the sweetness in my first sip, I added a little sweetener and was very happy with the result. Fruity with strawberry and maybe a little rhubarb (?) the overall taste was fruity, but one should expect that from the name.
Thanks VariaTEA for the sample. It was neat comparing it to Forever Nuts and all the similar blends, but it wasn’t much of a comparison because this tastes exactly like Forever Nuts anyway.
For that reason, not sad that it’s gone because I have lots of Forever Nuts left.
Thanks VariaTEA for the sample. I actually thought it’d be a sipdown, but there’s still enough there for one more small cup.
I seem to be acquiring lots of the “Forever Nuts” type of teas, and I think I’m making decent enough progress getting through then. The nice thing is that they’re all a little bit different – or so I thought. When I brewed this one up it tasted exactly like Forever Nuts, complete with the pink tea liquor. Honestly, if I hadn’t prepared it myself I would have had NO IDEA that they were different teas.
So, that said – it was good, but totally not special or unique enough to persuade me to buy this one over Forever Nuts which is much more accessible.
Another delicious-smelling pineapple tea from MissB! This has the potential to be really pineapple-y but it’s actually hidden somewhat by the sencha. It’s a little nutty and green, and anything else that’s supposed to be in here is lost in a generic creaminess. It’s a pleasant cup but I’m not sure it’s harmonious, and I’m not in love with it.
While I do enjoy this tea as a tea, it’s definitely not carrot cake and if I had bought it as a carrot cake tea, I’d actually be pretty disappointed. It’s a definite subtlety spiced blustery day tea. A tiny touch of sugar does a lot for bringing the spices forward, but I’m really finding myself longing for carrot and cake.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Nutmeg
Thank you MissB for the chance to try this tea. It is certainly very interesting. It tends to be different with each cup though. Sometimes it is juicy blueberry, some sips are tart, others are incredibly sweet. It is all pretty tasty though.
I decided to finish what was left of this tonight. I might grab more in the future as it is definitely a delicious blend however I have a lot of the chiffons left and I think I would need to get through those before I can justify buying some of this. Thank you MissB for sending me this to try. It is lemony and creamy and just a very pleasant cup.
On another note, why is “cannabis”, “green bell peppers”, “asparagus”, etc. flavor options but there is no “lemon”, “mint”, etc.? I find this very, very strange.
