1850 tasting notes

This tea has been on my “to try” list forever it seems like, but I never got around to samping it or picking some up. But fortunatley that has changed now since Alphakitty was kind enough to send me some of this in our last swap!

The tea smells nice and lemony, coconutty, and also the somewhat more intangible “fresh and green”. The flavor is quite nice. It’s not too heavily flavored, which is good because it keeps it light and that fits with the tropical blend. Honestly I’d like a little bit more lemon to it, but the coconut is creamy and nice. The green tea in there even makes the coconut taste fresh, and I have the sensation of eating chunks of coconut right from the shell. Yum.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
