878 Tasting Notes
Guys… I just slept for 13 hours :\ Not what I planned at all. But I decided to sample this from the Traveling Teabox B. I didn’t really know what it was so I just brewed it like a white tea. It turned out nice. It’s very mellow. It has a sweetness to it that reminds me of apples and peaches. The flavors are very delicate but I still like it. I feel like it’s a good fall tea because it’s smooth but crisp with light apple\peach flavor.
I decided to have a relaxing morning with my new tea pet and gaiwan.
The aroma of the wet leaf is very sweet. Slightly floral. But there is still a touch of earth and smoke. Mmm :] The flavor is very sweet with light touches of honeysuckle.
Aroma is still sweet but the smokey note is starting to come out a bit more. The flavor is still sweet with a strong earthy note.
The aroma is sweet but the earthy\smokey notes are starting to take over. Ooo this steep is dark. Beautiful deep chocolate brown color. The mouthfeel of this steep is thick but smooth. The flavor is sweet with strong earthy notes. That touch of honeysuckle is in the background.
The aroma is still earthy and smokey but the sweetness has almost vanished. The flavor is very earthy with honeysuckle notes. There is a slight roasted nut flavor. But only slightly.
The aroma is kind of leafy and burnt(in a good way). The flavor is very earthy with toasted nut and sweet notes.
The aroma is slowly making it’s way back to sweet and earthy. There is still a nice burnt\smokey note to it. The flavor kind of reminds me of a raw mushroom. Still earthy. Still sweet. I’m catching a slight honeysuckle note again.

So this is the first tea I took out of the Traveling Teabox B! I’ve read so many great reviews so I had to try it. It is pretty delicious. Caramel and dark chocolate notes with a smoothness to it. There is a nice, rich buttery note to it, too. The aroma reminds me of crackers :]
