334 Tasting Notes
Thank you for the sample.
It does indeed smell like a watermelon.
I have to admit that I’m not a watermelon fan (in terms of taste). What? Shocking I know … Furthermore, I associate watermelon flavor with cheep bubblegum. Having said that, this was really nice. It was light, sparkly and very delightful. It would probably make a nice iced version.
I bought this because I recall that I liked grape sencha from Den’s tea.
The smell is intense but I LOVE the smell of concord grapes. In fact I could just smell this tea and then daydream a bit and then smell it again.
The taste is light and less grape-y than I expected but I like it that way. It’s a nice and refreshing blend.
From all the new Zodiac Series Cancer and Capricorn are probably my favorite so far. With Capricorn I try to be careful not to overbrew it, then it has just the right amount of creamy goodness.
Some neat write up for Apothecary Green by Verdant Tea. I love old botanical prints; so cool.
Finally I got to taste the blend for my own sign. It’s a nice, a little bit smokey oolong with smooth peach flavor. Not bad!
Ordered some new stuff from Butiki Teas; I have never tried anything from them.
Tomorrow Verdant tea will be featured on http://moodsandappetites.com/
I will not rate this because It is my signature blend.
It’s slightly sweet and nutty, the taste of the assam really comes through.
Over the weekend updated the labels for my 4 Seasons blends. “4 Seasons. Autumn” is probably on of two personal favorites of all of my blends including Zodiac.
