Recent Tasting Notes
My eleventy-eleventh note! Didn’t even realize I’d broken one hundred.
Made two cups in the Breville…yes, I know it’s for loose-leaf, but for two cups, there’s plenty of room in the basket for the bags. And it worked really well.
I’ve been brewing this with water that was too hot. I’ve never temped the water before, just guestimated the temp. This cup is fresh, clean-tasting, light. I can taste more of the guava as well, and the pineapple is even more delicious. Previous cups have been heavier, denser, but this one…it’s crisp and bright.
Put a tea with pineapple in front of me, and I’m a happy camper. This one is no exception to that rule. The pineapple is crisp, and the guava flavor gives it a nice tang. The fruit doesn’t overpower the taste of the white tea, either. A very good tea for summer; it’s also good iced.
Just a small bit of green tea to get me through the afternoon here at work. I really like the fact that I can taste the goji in this one (as compared to Zhena’s goji cacao, where I have yet to find it). This is my last bag of this I have (only bought a travel tin to try it out), and I’m not sure if I’ll get more. Chances are no, since there’s so many other teas out there that I want to try first. If it were on sale, though, chances are that it would end up back in my cupboard.
Today’s one of those days at work. You know, the kind where you can get nothing you want to get done accomplished because the phone is constantly ringing? Yup, it’s that kind of morning. So I needed a happy, yummy tea to both calm me down and give me a bit of energy. Green tea it is!
I can taste more of the goji berries in this tea than the raspberry, and both more than the green tea (which seems to be common for Republic of Tea greens, or is that just me?). This is sweet and just the perfect shade of tart.
Think it’ll sweeten my disposition whilst answering the phones? Yeah, I don’t think so, either.
