Sipdown, and what a pleasant one at that!
This tea is just so pleasant, I hesitate to properly describe it in a way other than YUM! It’s a little sweet and fruity, and more body than most whites I’ve had. I’d love to see how the other Doke harvests are, as well as some of the other whites Stacy has to offer. I’m curious on the White Rhino, and maybe a few others.
Thanks CrowKettle for letting me have the rest of the pouch.
Sipdown! Having the last of this one from Cavocorax tonight. I meant to have it last night with my Della Terra day, but never got there.
I really like this one, and now I wonder if I ordered this with my joint order with CrowKettle or not. If not, then next time when some of the other items we wanted come back in stock.
This is sweet and nutty, but in a way that is different to Forever Nuts from David’s. It has more body and depth, from the honeybush/rooibos base.
I’d definitely get more to have on hand for nighttime tea. I’m so glad I could try it.
Sipdown! I decided to have the rest of this one after chatting with Anna on Facebook earlier. Since I’m on the west coast of Canada and she is in Italy, it was bedtime for her. So I thought that Eve would be nice.
This is still a very pleasant tea, though the flavours are a little too mild for me. I can get a little of the juicy fruits and some sweetness. This is another one that I think I like better cooled rather than hot, but still good either way. I think I prefer Sur La Lune better, for the types of fruit notes.
Thanks for letting me try all these Nina’s teas, VariaTEA!
Sipdown, and another I seem to have forgotten to write a note for, though I swear I did…did Steepster eat my note?
Anyway, not an amazing tea, to be honest. I think the cinnamon is a little overpowering, and I can’t really taste much else. On this last steep, I opted to add some milk, to see if it would make the icing pop a bit, but it just tastes kinda funny with the cinnamon note.
It’s not horrible, but nothing that is wowing me. I do thank VariaTEA for sending me this, as I’m always on the hunt for a good caffeine free blend, and I handle honeybush better than rooibos. Unfortunately, it’s just not a huge winner for me.
Sipdown! Yay! Good genmai cha…I can just barely make out a hint of cocoa, and there is a sweet creamy feel and taste from the marshmallow. But it is still pretty close to a regular genmai cha, just a little sweeter.
(somehow I missed my note the first time, so this serves as the same note for both tastings)
Thank you VariaTEA for sending this my way to try.
I think the berries and fruits in this tea pop a bit more when the tea is cooled, though I can’t really make out individual notes, as they all seem to meld together for me. I think I like this better cooled than hot…but it is good either way.
Thanks for letting me try this one VariaTEA as I think I like this one the best of the Nina’s except for Japon. Which is pretty much perfection.
It was a relatively warm day for us here today, so in addition to my Coco-Lemon Thai iced tea to go, I added 12g of this tea.
It smells and tastes pretty much the same, so it is pretty good. I am getting more melon than cucumber, I think, but that’s ok. I am getting mint.
It’s pleasant enough, and I may repurchase later when it is warmer for some cold steeping, but right now, I don’t have a super need for more of it yet.
I had to get up at stupid o’clock this morning to take hubby to the airport. He’s off to San Fran covering Macworld for work…but he is back on Saturday, so not too long. Anyway…on to the tea.
So I had a mediocre experience with this one the first time I tried it, but had read that some people found it better with milk, so I said that next time I would do it with milk too…
So, it worked! It is MUCH BETTER with milk. I could actually taste more french toast flavours. Hoorah! So I’m upping the rating, since it is way better with milk.
Thanks to VariaTEA for letting me try this one! It’s a nice morning tea, with milk.
