82 Tasting Notes

drank Loke Lani by Lupicia
82 tasting notes

I didn’t think that I’d like this tea because the dry leaves smelled very floral. After brewing, I was pleasantly surprised. This does taste like an earl grey first with a subtle passion fruit at the end. All in all, another well balanced tea from Lupicia, but nothing extra-special to make me reach for it over any other tea.

Flavors: Flowers

Preparation
1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

The package specified a 3-4 minute brewing time & I brewed for 4 minutes. Next time I would brew for 3 minutes and maybe add some sweetener because it was bitter for me.

The chocolate is more in the aroma and the mint is very strong.

Preparation
212 °F / 100 °C 3 min, 0 sec

This steeping starts with a floral scent and finishes with a sweetness. It tastes less floral and more balanced than when I drank it last.

I brewed this for a shorter time & removed the tea so that it wouldn’t continue steeping. This steep was less sweet and less spicy. Maybe it depends what spices you get in each serving?

drank Ginger by Yogi Tea
82 tasting notes

I reach for this tea when I’m feeling under the weather but not up for a pu-erh. Or rather, am lazy and only want to deal with tea bags.

This is very aggressively spiced, which I like. The spice is warming and bounces between ginger, pepper, and licorice. It finishes with a little sweetness and I find that the bottom of the cup is more sweet (and less enjoyable) that the beginning.

I met Joseph Wesley at the recent NYC Coffee & Tea Festival. His packaging is amazing and he was great to talk to. He provided me with a sample of this tea and I brewed it for myself & my fiance while working from home today.

The tea is reminiscent of a meyer lemon tea I’ve tried from Zen Tara Tea, but it is very clean with a slight sweetness. It tastes almost similar to a dark oolong due to the astringency, but it is very balanced and refreshing. Upon smelling, I get a faint roasted, earthy smell which translated into a smooth taste. The middle of the taste is mineral and hints of roasted chocolate or caramel, with a slight end-of-a sip citrus hint.

Flavors: Caramel, Cocoa, Earth, Lemon Zest, Malt, Metallic, Mineral

drank Lemon Chiffon by Red Rose
82 tasting notes

I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I tasted a sample of it and took a bag home from the recent New York Coffee & Tea Festival. By the packaging and fact that it is a grocery store brand, I was not expecting to like it at all, but I did!

The smell is absolutely divine, like a a rich lemon. The taste is actually quite complex and well balanced. I could almost literally taste a nice zingy slice of lemon meringue pie while sipping, including the crust, filling, and even creamy topping. This is quite a unique tea and goes well as a “tea time” or dessert tea, but it is not too sweet to deter me from drinking it at other times of the day.

Flavors: Coconut, Cream, Lemon Zest, Vanilla

Preparation
5 min, 0 sec 40 g 8 OZ / 236 ML
