419 Tasting Notes
This tea is like opening a long-abandoned spice cabinet whose wood took on the subtle ghosts of aroma from spices long gone. It is soothing and cooling like a fresh breeze carrying the scent of wildflowers. Simply lovely!
This is a very enjoyable! It is very roasty and savory, but at the same time there is sweet vegetal quality to it. It is more complex than any other genmaicha I’ve had. The only deterrant in this for me is the drymouth it leaves behind. It gets to be unpleasant towards the end of the cup
So far I’m disappointed in 52teas. They’re ok, but they’re just not great. This one is just ok too. Thebase was strong and the flavoring was mild It just didn’t impress me.
First hot toddy of the fall! I’m really enjoying trying plum teas lately and I really like this one It worls well with rum. Now I’m cozied up for the evening with my kindle and mug.
Thanks, Nicole_Martin for a packet of the Spinach Chive Flavor!
Good Golly Miss Molly this was salty! I felt like I was drinking soup created with too much bouillon. And I like salty things, but this was just a bit too much after the first couple of ounces. If I have this again, I will have a very small cup of it at one time.
I LOVE spinach. It’s my second favorite veggie next to potatoes, so I was excited to have a spinach tea. This was heavy on the chives and onion, so the spinach and green tea was kind of lost to those flavors. At one point the chives were so strong my eyes actually watered! -And yet I kept drinking it…
This makes a nice soup broth (though I would add some more spinach and maybe some rice to it), but as a tea? I dunno.
This is my favorite Kusmi blend. There’s just something refreshing about the lime flavor!
I’m determined to finish this by Saturday morning! This took longer than I thought!
Color, texture, and smell of powder: lighter green, not very clumpy.Seaweed smell, but nt overwhelmingly so.

C olor, texture, and smell of powder: Similar to 9, slightlyclumpier. Smells stronger of. Seaweed
Notes: A littlechalky. Slightly bitter. 9 was better.
I really liked this tea. Sadly I didn’t get to have it as a hot toddy.
MMMMMmmmmm! This went so well with the pumpkin scone from Alice’s Tea Cup that I treated myself to this morning. I needed something STRONG to get me going! This was particularly sweet this morning and I love the dark charcoal taste on the first steep. I’m on my third steep now! :-)
It’s a white tea kind of tea! Oh and thank you, Stacy for the sample of this and White Whisper with my last order. I forgot in my white whisper note!
This does taste exactly like cantaloupe. I don’t really know what else to say! It’s quite yummy, but not something I would drink all the time.
And am I the only one who thinks actual canteloupe tastes a little like maple? It’s kind of woody and sweet at the same time. I’ve always thought that and this tea tastes just like that.
