1566 Tasting Notes
Aha!!! I figured it out. Ha!
Two minutes, and an underleafed cuppa = creamy goodness. Not so much on the blueberry, sadly. But then when I have a blueberry cream cheese danish, I seem to remember there being less jelly filling and more cheesey goodness anyhow, so technically it is somewhat accurate to my memory. Oh man I really like it that way.
(underleaf by about %10 to 15- for future reference!)
Yummy!! Very holiday cheer like. Gingery in the bread kinda way. I could barely taste the Lapacho note in there, and I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. Great for those who dislike the taste of Lapacho!
A pinch of sugar made it even more cookie like. Very comforting. I’m looking forward to using this up :D
Yep, this is a nice one. Not nearly as super fantastic as the Assam, but still good. The lady at the shop mentioned there was some Chinese tea in there. I can’t remember what region but I know it wasn’t one of the standard ones. Actually I keep thinking it was Hubei but I know it wasn’t because I do recall thinking “I wonder if that is near Hubei” for some reason. And yet I can’t recall the name of the place she mentioned. Silly brain.
Ok. So! This one is quite round in depth and profile. A little too focused on the Keemum like notes for my preferences. I’m not a fan of Keemum, personally.
With milk and sugar, it works well enough for me. A nice sipping tea that I don’t need to pay much attention to. Not something I’d repurchase though
Wow this is exactly what I hoped it’d be, only with less mint. I taste mostly black tea and lime. There is a hint of mint in the aftertaste. Boo. I’m not a rum fan but love the combo of lime and mint. Damn I was really pulling for mint. Ah well, it’s still pretty tasty.
Now this was made hot, and the leaves were ctc (I ordered a bunch of the iced tea bags, fully intending to rip them apart, since I didn’t want to order bags full of the stuff)
Next time, I’ll def make this iced. I can really see it shining that way.
Also I’m not a huge fan of the base but it kinda works here!!
Something about this tea bothered me and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Something about the mouthfeel.
Reminded me vaguely of a vanilla tea from way back that made me ill once but that isn’t quite it! I’m stumped… though I can certainly see how others would adore it. Managed to finish my cup, and enjoyed it kindof, but had trouble getting to the bottom.
Milk n sugar helped a little, making it more caramel icecream like. Still… Won’t be doing that one again!
