232 Tasting Notes
A big thumbs down… Thippppph!
I enjoy DAVIDs Oolongs, but this one was a bust! BIG TIME! To the point that I am happy I only asked for 10g. It’s very vegital, though I don’t mind a veggy taste it really does not mix well with the intense fig smell or the melon taste…
I’ll be happy when this is done.
(Please note: I combined this tea with Ginger Pu’erh, to make a full pot of tea)
Good Gawd! I really read to get more of this for my cupboard for evenings where a little cinnamon is needed to calm me.
I would suggest against enjoying a bath with this tea, as I could smell the less appealing notes of the pu-erh. But the cinnamon taste ran right along the center of my tongue, from tip to back, and it did not take me long to polish off the entire pot!
Note, I used 1.5tsps for agave to sweeten the 32oz pot.
O… M… G!!
Sweet! Literally. I wish it had been tasty enough to keep my attentions long enough to finish it. But I will admit this would make a fabulous weekend tea (if only because of the sweetness)
I did not detect any other flavours, but I would not doubt that I either understeeped of the water was not hot enough – I was a little distracted this morning: “Are you kidding me?! A December Rain Storm in AUGUST!!?! WTF?!”
32oz tea pot ~ Check
Nepal Black ~ Check
An hour to myself ~ Check!
I only put two perfect scoops into the basket this time, because last night I noticed that when I put three scoops of black tea in to the basket I ended up with a brew that is “too much tea” that I had an espresso black liqueur.
I could have used maybe a half perfect scoop more? Or maybe not? Right now it is perfect enough with 2 perfect scoops to not need any milk or cream. I should have bought a pot long ago because I am finding that I am brewing delicious pots, this tea has gone up a few points for me.
So, I know that I mentioned the last of the Watermelon tea was mixed with this one… as a result, and because the Luscious Watermelon was a donated tea to my Summer Camp site, I brought the Goji Pop/Luscious Watermelon mix with me to work.
Again we used the Rubbermaid pitchers, and again we used 3 T-sacs per pitcher (this nearly drained me of Goji Pop and I will have to make sure I head into a DAVIDs soon for more.
The children preferred the “pucker power” of the Goji berries, and some of the children who have been drinking herbal teas with me all year, noticed: “HEY! Hey Erin! You can taste the watermelon on the (varying parts of the mouth)”
And quite a few of the children left begging their parents to take them to DAVIDs again, for some more yummy teas!
I tried a sip of this when I was in the store to find out why another tea is no longer doing what it is supposed to do. And found this to be an enjoyable green. Enjoyable enough to take home 10g to see if I really care enough for this tea to add it to my cupboard.
I ended up using the entire 10g in my new tea pot, I brewed this up and this morning it is GONE! So at least I know either my husband woke up incredibly thirsty and downed the entire 1lt of tea in one shot, or he just did not realise he was drinking MY TEA! He can have his “poisons” but seriously he should leave mine alone!
sigh so sad that I did not get to try this one at home!
Oh, Oh WOW!
This tea was in my to-go cup yesterday and WOW! I must’ve steeped this one perfectly because it was so good, so-good! That I did not have to add milk or cream or anything to it really. And I actually finished the entire cup! When I get to work the kids are so busy that I usually forget my tea and end up sipping it cold and if it is black I make a “sour pinchy face” (or what the kids call the: we’re not eating that for snack face")… No I clutched this travel mug to my body until the last drop!
I don’t remember what it tasted like, but oh dear God, I just know that if it was good enough for me to hold on to until the last drop, I know it is good enough to take the next empty tin into DAVIDs and ask for 100g of this!
