1179 Tasting Notes
okay I KNOW I logged this one atleast once. Not fair, now that it’s gone weak and stale… I can’t accurately describe what it tastes like. Vegetal, sweet, very light. That’s about it!
Too bad this is another sipdown. Thanks QuiltGuppy for the sample. I miss you!!
Third times a charm! Very little nausea to be found. Yay! =D
Sample sipdown!! I’ve been trying far too many new ones lately and I need to focus more on purging. AND getting to know the other new ones better :D
Since this was in the baggie, it also seems to have lost a bunch of flavour. Oh well.
This lost quite a bit of maltiness over time. My cup was ok. Nothing special, but decent overall.
That’s one thing I’m looking forward to, getting down to a reasonable amount of tea so that it doesn’t loose flavour by the time my packet is done!
Much improved, much improved. Seriously. Milk and honey. Fixes everything. Bonnie! you know how to fix a funny chai lol. Thanks for the tip!
Sil have you tried it that way?! It’s quite good!
Very mild in the spices, but widespread and complex. On the swallow, I can taste chocolate whereas without dairy, all I get is fake sweetness. Yup, I quite like it this way. Not sure if I’m inspired to place an order, as I’d like to try out some other Verdant teas first. Also, it is somewhat limiting as I’d like to be able to enjoy it plain as well. That factor alone lowers my rating a few points.
Update: Now that I’ve finished the cup, there is a cooling sensation almost like menthol. Interesting!
Ugh. I have a headache.
So of course I made a smoothie, what else is there to do!?
Hmph. I can’t taste any of the berry at all. Boo.
First time I used this, it didn’t turn out that great. Thus, I’m letting it settle a bit before making another go at a regular cuppa.
Btw, does anyone know of some fun/interesting web shows? Pretty much just regular tv, posted online/youtube… A friend was asking me about them but I could only think of a few.
Also, does anyone else stream television from the internet? I use CH131.com or tv-links.eu but I’m always looking for options. (that can be viewed from Ontario that is)
I am really liking this. Seriously, it’s good!
Have you ever had a really sweet, I mean naturally sweet, green tea? I’m getting that sort of caramel flavour here, along with another, deeper type of sweetness that extends throughout the sip.
In the middle, there is a slight hint of cocoa and the aftertaste? milk. Very milky.
Interesting, I really like this blend!!
Now that I’m out of the Queen, I’ve been drinking this on its own. Not terrible.
Still about 60g left, but somehow the leaves get used up faster than I expected. They aren’t ctc, but cut up into tiny little squares. Does it take up more room that way? I’d have thought less!
So for today’s cup I steeped 3min 20sec and added chocolate syrup. Maybe I should have added an extra thirty seconds because the overall tea flavor was a little weak. I prefer stout, hardy teas with alot of malt. I find that factor to be hit and miss with blacks. Am I doing something different or are my buds off? Hmmm.
Underwhelming. Similar to a few others I’ve had, but not very intense on the flavour. Compared to Sweet Temptation, this came in a distant second. Not bad, just a little weak! I’m a little spoiled :P
I definitely taste the toffee influence though. Next time I’ll try adding a bit more leaf.
Also, I tried adding milk. That helped make it creamier!
Have there really been no posting notes since I crashed last night? I was so looking forward to reading a few notes before braving the boxing day sales today.
What tea will I choose to keep me functional… I’m thinking a matcha and a black tea. (odd there are no formatting items in my note, why is it in italics)
Oh and I had a cup of Berry Chocolate last night with some vanilla syrup. It was great but I think I’ll try the next one with chocolate. I received the pair in my stocking! :P
