89 Tasting Notes
Let me say first off, that this is my first foray into Matcha. As I didn’t have the proper supplies, someone suggested I use my french press to get a froth, so thats what I did.
This…this is heaven in a cup. I think I used far too little Matcha powder after reading things up online, the ‘how to’s’ I read online about how to make it with the press had said use a teaspoon. I’m assuming their stuff was different because using that much here I got mildly flavored milk, but it was still delicious. It strikes me as a good alternative for a day when I’m craving hot chocolate but wanting something with a little more oomph.
This was sent to me from TeaSipper, and I’m really thankful for the ability to try it without paying an exorbanant amount for something I may not end up liking.
Super pleased with this, going to try more here in a moment with more powder because I really think the flavor being upped some wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.
Mixed this 75/25 with the Adagio Cream tea because alone its flavor is a little overwhelming. This was one of the first teas I ever bought and boy am I glad I gave myself time to retry it before giving up on it. Now that I’ve had more varieties of tea I think I can truly say that I like this. The pumpkin is lovely and very light when the cream is completely mellowing things out.
I feel I’ve done something wrong brewing this. It came out quite bitter in an unplesant way. I see it says its astringent in the description but I’m not sure if thats what I’m getting or if I just oversteeped. I don’t hate it with some milk and a touch of Stevia. But I’m glad I got it in a swap instead of paying for it. Hopefully when I brew the rest I find a way to make it easier to drink.
I was brewing this at my normal 3m time and I’ve found it comes out a bit bitter for my taste. Seeing someone made it at 1.5m in the review makes me wonder if that was the problem. At any rate this isn’t a terrible tea, I’ve been using my generic green tea to supplement it when I make it to make it a little less bitter. I’ll have to try making it for less time. I wasn’t realizing Sencha was a different blend of tea. facepalm
I really don’t know what I’m doing wrong with this. I’ve tried it twice now and in the bag its smells amazing. But once I make it…it tastes almost like cardboard. I know I got this in a swap and I remember steeping it once before. I thought I noted it so I’ll have to see if I enjoyed it better the first time. All in all its not the worst thing I’ve drank, but totally not something I’d pay for.
This is probably one of the best Chamomile based teas I’ve gotten, and as someone whos an insomniac, I’ve tried an unholy crapton.
Very mild and relaxing flavorwise, without too much of any of the flavors. I’m glad I got a good amount of this because its probably going to be a nightly/semi nightly drinker for me.
This…this is lemon with lemon and the scent of pledge. My husband requested it, so he can have it more then likely. Hot its almost acidic. I’m going to give it a shot over Ice the way its suggested in the description, and see if that makes it any better because WOO does it feel like I’m drinking pledge.
