1535 Tasting Notes
Yet another from the traveling box. I really need to get it moving again. Hopefully after I get paid either tomorrow or Monday.
Anyhow. I liked this. It was rather rich and malty for a white yet still had the white tea(silver needle, I think?) characteristics I used to love. Maybe this is how I can fall back into whites? There was a time I adored them all!
I got two steeps out of it, and probably could have gone for three or four if there had been time.
I wonder who put this in the box. Since I’m the first to review anything from this company…
Oh man this is good!! Another one from the travelling tea box.
At first I was skeptical. Surely this one would be too much for me. But it is super pleasant!
Other reviews are so right. With a splash of milk, it’s just perfect. Spicy, refreshing, and brisk. Quite astringent mind you. My mouth is super dried out feeling.
Still, if I see this in a store, I’m gettin it!!!
Cardboard? Yeah I kinda see it. but I don’t hate it.
Something about vanilla and coconut always has that profile, in my mind anyhow.
A dash of milk and a teeny bit of sugar make it uber creamy.
So while I wouldn’t run out and buy out the shop of this one… I wouldn’t turn down another cup! :)
Also, I don’t see much chocolate here. Or maybe that kind of chocolate that’s been so washed out that it tastes more like vanilla!!
I took a few days off from black tea with milk. I’m glad I did because it made todays cuppa extra tasty! Seriously. Rating bump deserved just for this one cup! :)
Extra malty and flavourful this time around. Me likey.
On the health front, I am still waiting for one of my doc appointments to be made. GP said that if they don’t call me within two weeks after his referral (they faxed the form in) that I should give them a call. So I’m left waiting… to find out how long I need to wait… sighs.
Oh and I had my sleep clinic follow up last night. Apparently I have positional sleep apnea. They want me to wear this shirt to bed since I only have sleep “incidents” when on my back. This should be interesting… http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/anti-snore-shirts-sleep-apnea
Another one from the traveling tea box.
Noms! when hot… super noms. All smooth and creamy and white chocolate notes… with a hint of coconut that works really well here.
Cold, ehhhh. Still good, but not wow good. More standard what I kinda hoped for(not wanting to set expectations too up there!) but on the high end of that.
No sugar or anything added and I found it quite sweet on its own. Possibly too much so for those who prefer unsweet tea.
So points for hot goodness. A few points off for uber sugary-ness.
From the traveling tea box. Not one I would have purchased for myself before trying it… as I generally don’t like papaya. Love mango though!
Dry, it smells super fruity. Like a tropical punch, but a bubblegummy one. That aspect comes through in the brewed tea as well, only not quite as strongly.
I haven’t got much else to say really. Fruity mango noms. Pairs surprisingly well with Puer! since I’ve never tried the base, I don’t really feel qualified to comment. Then again I’m still on the first steep so there may be an update fortcoming ;)
OK so I didn’t get citrus from this at all. A bit of spice which I presume was the cinnamon and the rest was all puerh. A bright one, I’ll give it that. and I’ll accept that the brightness is possibly a result of the grapefruit, but I would never have picked that out, let alone something fruity. I also get something else underneath. Bread? that isn’t quite it. Hmmm.
I did really enjoy this blend. Maybe one day I’ll buy some :D
Wow these ttb pickings are hitting it outta the park!
This tea is confusing me!!! Minty and nutty and coconut and… bah!
At first it was so flat that I couldn’t taste much of anything at all except the brazil nuts. Not impressed. So I added some sugar and apparently too much. Only half of a teaspoon! Sheesh. Now it’s all super strong mint and coconut and I don’t know what else… but something else too.
Now I do think I like it. I’m just not sure how much! somewhere in between a 75 and 85?
This stuff smells like heaven!! from the box yet again.
I often think and even say I don’t like coconut but then I smell a pure sweet young coconut scent and remember that I do adore some coconut. Happy sighs.
It’s very creamy on it’s own. Just the way I love it! :D
I’m not sure what level of flavouring this is but I do wish it was a bit less. I can’t really taste the matcha.
Also, it looks like I am the first person to review this in almost a year?!
