505 Tasting Notes
Tasted pretty much like a good strong pu erh should, in my opinion, though I can’t really say I noticed anything that set this one apart from the others I have had. It tasted fine, and deep and rich and only a little bit fishy. I should add that I did not rinse the leaves, nor did I steep this one gong fu style. Perhaps I’d have a different tasting experience with this that way, though as this is just a small sample, I won’t really have the opportunity. I’ll see if I can save the leaves for a third steep tomorrow.
I’m not sure who to thank on this one…it comes from OMGsrsly but the package has stuff Sil sent her to pass on to me, so it could be either.
Having this due to tummy issues and not wanting caffeine in the evening. It’s definitely minty, and there is a hint of rooibos, but no throat weirdness, but also no chocolate unless you consider the vanilla like flavour like white chocolate.
I’ll probably finish the sample from Amoda, but it isn’t something I’m likely to buy again. I have other similar options here.
Having this as my evening tea, as it’s a caffeine free blend. Part of my New Years resolution is to reduce my caffeine and increase my water intake. It’s going ok so far, only I have very few non-caffeine blends to choose from, and I dislike a lot of herbals. I’m also not a huge rooibos fan, though I seem ok in this and the other DT blends.
I do definitely get nut, with sweet apple and spice.
I have just a little left. I do like this, so I might order more of this for my evening drinking, but I think I might prefer the straight honeybush from Champagne Cider. I’m not sure if I like this as much as I used to, so I have dropped the rating, but I do still like it.
