335 Tasting Notes
Just had a nice dinner: black japonica rice with black beans, spaghetti squash, saffron, cardamom and a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar + some tofu with home made tomato chutney. Finishing this with a lovely cup of jasmine tea from Mandala Tea. Actually wouldn’t mind sharing this with some of you :)
It has some nice notes of apple/cider. I steeped it longer than the recommended time and that’s how I like it. For me jasmine is a perfect after dinner tea.
Bought some Zodiac tea tins as a gift for my friends, went to Adagio website and could not see the link anywhere. Strange … Anyway found it via search. Bought Leo blend for myself; looking forward to some flavored teas for a change.
The smell of this tea is intoxicating, it seeps through even when the tin it closed.
Pisces is light, yet very flavorful blend that packs a punch of all different flavors blended together. I can taste the grapefruit, chamomile, rooibos and lemongrass but none of the flavors overwhelms the other.They all come together nicely. What a treat!
I’m afraid I’ve been completely sucked in the world of Pu’er.
I have never tried Sheng Pu’er before and Wild Monk Sheng Pu’er has been a marvelous introduction. To me it tastes like sweet, dried apples/hay/grass, no bitterness whatsoever. When it cools down I can detect some smokey notes. It’s a complex tea you really want to drink more and get to know it.. Pretty sure I will re-order.
I’ve been drinking quite a lot of pu’erh lately, so this is a welcome change. It’s light, floral with hints of honey, apricots and peaches. Looks very pretty too.
Ordered Pisces blend for my friend as a gift and even with the box closed it smelled SO good that I decided I must order it for myself as well.
Ordered from Mandala tea for the first time; exited to try all the new pu’erh teas.
I took a risk with this blend because I really dislike licorice.
It turns out that this is an awesome blend. I could appreciate the richness of Shu; the ginger and pepper gives it a little zing. It’s nicely balanced and the spices add to the taste instead of overwhelming it. I barely noticed the licorice :)
