425 Tasting Notes
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
This tea was a bit sugary when brewed up hot but cold brewed overnight this was a maple syrup delight with hints of apple and a bit of tartness thrown in from the cranberries. Almost like a dessert.
This tea was fun. It was a lightly flavored vanilla black with a very light orange finish. It was perfect for my afternoon light reading of the Aunt Dimity series.
I am jealous of anybody that lives anywhere near Philadelphia. It seems like you have some pretty awesome tea shops. We literally have no unique shops near me. The only tea room that I know of just serves Bigelow with springs of mint. Which is fine. I would love to have a shop like The Random Tea Room near me.
Enough of my ramblings. . this was a fantastic maltly slightly astringent black tea. I really liked it. As it cools, the astringency became more pronounced and that part I wasn’t to keen on. But overall a decent cuppa.
I love the name of this one. I am one that does have a cup of coffee some mornings instead of going with tea. Some days I just need an extra push.
This tea was a tasty blend of black tea, puerh, vanilla, and butterscotch. All of those flavors came thru nicely. I didn’t pick up any hazelnut so I’m going to play with the parameters a bit more. The tea leaves remind me of butterscotch candy.
A yummy way to wake up that’s for sure.
This tea has the “WOW” Factor. It really does.
This tea reminds me of those caramel apple green suckers I used to eat all the time when I was a teenager. I think they still have them-just can’t remember what they are called.
Delicious caramel with green apple notes and a lovely green tea base. I’m in green tea heaven! Really Recommend this one. Iced or hot, this was a tasty tea.
Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Sweet
I don’t drink a lot of oolongs but I think that needs to change. This was a nice smooth oolong. Almost malty. Pretty good. I had this in the form of a tea sachet. I could see myself wanting to get more of this.
I was so excited yesterday when my tea cup from Bulgaria showed up! I love this beautiful tea cup. I don’t have anything like it and now I feel “fancy” when I drink out of it. I’ve nicknamed it “Beauty”. Is that weird I named my tea cup?
Happy Tuesday all!
Every once in a while you come across a tea that has the “Wow” factor. A lot of teas taste pleasant and are enjoyable, but they don’t have that knock you off your feet kind of good going on. This does. I have never had Soursop Tea before and I couldn’t believe how good it was. This tasted just like Cinnamon Toast Crunch without the sugar overload. You have to let it simmer for about 15 minutes but after that, you are greeted with some kind of deliciousness.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Sweet
