39 Tasting Notes
I don’t think I prepared this correctly. . . it’s so mild it’s almost not there at all. I pick up a vague vegetalness that clings to the tongue a bit after I’ve swallowed. I do adore the currrrrrly little leaves, though!
I’m gonna hafta make another cup before I decide whether or not I like it; indeed, or if there’s even anything to like.
The liquor brewed up a pleasing bright red. It smelled juicy, but indeterminate. The tartness was satisfying, but the watermelon tasted artificial, like a jolly rancher. It wasn’t bad, and I’d happily drink it again; I wouldn’t actually buy it, though.
I received this as a sample in the Republic of Tea catalog.
Gotta love those office Christmas parties, eh? This was my secret santa’s idea of an ideal gift for me.
It’s not bad! (which is a good thing, since I now have SO.MUCH. of it) It’s a standard green tea flavor; mild, not exactly bland, but it doesn’t really blow my skirt up, either. I’ve learned that I don’t like to drink it until the loose matcha dumped from the packet settles to the bottom. Drinking the loose matcha gives the tea an instant tea mouth feel that I find unpleasant, but the flavor itself is better with than without it.
