325 tasting notes

A new tea, since I have been very good at finishing old teas, and wow what an indulgence this tea is.

First it is very pretty, filled with huge petals and tiny tiny perfect little rose buds, an incredibly beautiful tea. I used more leaf than normally and am glad I did, this deserves to be intense!

I am somewhat baffled by the other taste notes here on steepster, I get very strong coconut and chocolate notes, with some pistacchio and almond in the background. A very smooth base, as expected (and I think I should have gone a bit hotter and shorter, though no harm was done) and if I did not quite get before this the concept of dessert tea, I get it now. It is totally dessert in a cup, a not too sweet, not filling but a very pleasant intense taste. A very indulgent lovely tea!

(not sure if I prefer this or Tribute. Will selflessly test it!)

oh the dominant note is coconut ? I was expecting pistacchio more…

I dunno! For me, because it was unexpected the first thing I noticed was the coconut . but the pistachio (and almond!) are truly there as well. But nobody else mentions the coconut, might be just me.

It is amazing though!

no no you’re not the only one, I checked on the French forums about teasand I saw other people mentionning coconut…

cteresa

Oh, that is nice to know, that I am not imagining or got totally the wrong tea (not that it would have happened anyway at their own store, but I know it has happened to me before particularly with a very pretty but very dishonest and/or unorganized tea store at Porto!)

Profile

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
