576 Tasting Notes
Cold brewed this one for the first time in the fridge overnight. I mentioned in previous tasting notes how the peach flavor is more of a gummy candy peach flavor. That candy flavor really works well in the iced form of this tea. I think I may even prefer it iced over hot. Anyway, it’s a nice refreshing iced tea! (I’m clearly a little insane for drinking iced tea while there is a snow storm raging outside, oh well).
Ordered this at Starbucks this morning to have something warm to hold onto and sip on while walking around outside doing touristy things. I didn’t realize when ordering “green tea” that this had such a prominent lemongrass flavor. I don’t really like lemons or lemongrass in general, so I will not be reordering this again, but it was a nice hand warmer at the very least!
I had to grab a bagel while I’m in New York, so we walked to a cute little bagel place around the corner from our hotel. To my surprise, they had Mighty Leaf! This breakfast tea was so much better than the cardboardy Tazo one I had yesterday. I may pick some of this up at the grocery when I get back home.
My 200th tasting note! I know a lot of people around here have way more, but it seems like a lot to me since I just recently got into tea. Anyway, I’m so happy that my 200th is this tea because it is pretty amazing. I will just add to my previous tasting notes for this tea that it does not resteep as well as LB, but that is to be expected because of the genmaicha aspect of it.
First thing I noticed was large chunks of what looks like dried raspberries, impressive! The tea itself tasted much the same.. like dried raspberries. There was also some other tartness that I assume comes from the pomegranate flavor. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever even had pomegranate before, so it’s hard to identify. Anyway, this tea was very fruity in a dried fruit sort of way rather than juicy-fruity.
Sample sipdown. Considering I just bought a bunch of oolong samples from Teavivre, this sipdown is somewhat of a relief. While I like the sweet honey and earthy tastes from this oolong, I think there other oolongs out there that fit my tastes better. Anyway, I will definitely be resteeping this throughout the day until it runs out of flavor, but probably not reordering in the future.
