1191 Tasting Notes
Thank you so much to CHAroma for sharing!!
I had the Marshmallow Genmaicha earlier this week, and realized afterwards that well, I should have saved it to compare with this one. but alas I did not and here I am drinking this one all by it’s lonesome.
Anyhow, I’m surprised to like the Cherry version more than the Marshmallow.
I don’t get any rice flavour, but definitely something fruity, and faintly cherry. Cheesecake? I’m not so sure. Would need to try another few cups to suss that out.
Overall, I like this. Not love though. and… am I the only one who got a minty/cooling sensation from the Marshmallow version?!
In any case, I only have a few minutes. Sorry for the hasty note!
It’s been a busy weekend, so when I finally got a chance to sit down with a cuppa, this is what I chose.
And I gotta say, this is the first apple tea I’ve really enjoyed!
There was so much of it in the package(traveling tea box), that now I regret not taking more… so that I could have added more of something else! heh, yeah that’s the reason why :P
Anyhow, with just a touch of sugar, this was a hair too apple like, or rather, the black base was pretty hidden. That said, the apple part is really nice. I mean, feel like I’m complaining about there not being enough icecream on my pie.
Second steep turned out just as tasty.
Aghhh and now I’ll be thinking about this one until I can have it again! but I don’t wanna take it into work because I am in the process of taking all my teas home and can’t have caffeinated teas in the evening so it will have to be my Saturday morning treat :P
At first, when this was hot, I quite enjoyed my cup. The ginseng sweetness was interesting, but certainly not typical of my normal tea rotation. It definitely lingers!
But then when it cooled I started to dislike the fake sweetness, because it reminded me of splenda, which I cannot stand the taste of. Overall, I give this one a thumbs down. Not something I’d try again, even if it was offered to me free of charge.
Although… the oolong part was nice. I suppose that is about the only positive thing I have to say here heh
I do not. Like this tea.
First cup was grainy, bready, and a touch floral. Kindof a Jasmine floral that stuck in the back of my throat. Some sugar spruced it up, but even then I had trouble sipping it down.
Then… I made the mistake of brewing a second cup. MORE Jasmine! eeek. Added some sugar. Well that didn’t work so I tried it with milk. Still bad. Down the drain it went.
This came from the traveling tea box and it’s the first one from the pile I didn’t like at all. Ah well, can’t win’em all :)
Thanks to whoever gave me the chance to try it!!
EDIT: and now I’ve made another cup of tea, a White Peony from STE and I can still taste the jasmine and none of the delicate notes I was craving. Dang that stuff is potent!
Ever have a really low day for no apparent reason? Ok well maybe I have a small one, I’m just worried that it’s bringing me down so much.
I need a hug. and positive thoughts, about getting a job before this one ends or else we will have to sell before renos are done. Sighs.
Even this tea didn’t do anything for me.
Raising the rating here. I think this is my fave tea of the moment. and green is my least preferred type. Yup it’s that good.
So sweet and ohhhhh did I mention it tastes like sugary spun goodness? I get redundant when excited :D
Picked at random from my sample pile. I don’t even know who it came from as someone keeps messing up my batches! and Mum says she would never touch my teas… uh huh…
Anyhow, thanks to whoever provided this lovely tea! I won’t hazard a guess as I can think of three people it could be!
As for the tea, wheee was it strong! but good. The vanilla was just right, not too strong. and the blueberry meshed really nicely with the Ceylon base. Not a strong berry taste mind you, but a true one. I’d order this if I was out n about!
Mixed this with Almond milk. Didn’t add anything since I wanted a baseline for how the mint and nut dairy mixed. Peppermint was still strong, but almost perfectly muted. I can’t wait to try this with some caramel! Mmmmm
Lowering the rating a smidge. Gnight y’all!
okayyyyy there is no way this tea hasn’t been rated yet. I know for a fact that I submitted one ages ago, as did a bunch of other people. This is just ODD.
Anyhow, I have tiny bit of this left in one of those mini tins that DT sells. It’s over a year old so I expected it to be pretty bland but I think it’s held the flavour pretty well! More peach, less almond now.
Still haven’t made it past three steeps. I want my spicy note!
