696 Tasting Notes
I don’t think I’ve ever logged this one but tonight I just want something… different.. I will admit that I hate the aroma of the dry leaf. It smells like vinegar. Very off putting.. But good news is that the vinegar aroma disappears after it’s brewed. The flavor is nice. The cucumber is very natural tasting and it blends well with the sweetness of the white tea. There is a nice vegetal note. It’s quite relaxing, actually.
Thank you Angel and Teavivre for a sample of this! Mmmm I was craving a rich black tea and I hope found my winner! I opened the package and a rich cocoa aroma spilled out. The leaves are beautiful, too. Mmm the flavor isn’t as rich as I was hoping but it’s still very enjoyable. This tea has light cocoa\caramel notes but there is something vegetal to it. Like sweet potato.. or raw string bean. There is a touch of malt, too. I really enjoy this tea. It’s nice and comforting.
Another from the Traveling Teabox B. I couldn’t help but smell this one and fall in love. Mmm it smells so creamy and sweet. Mm the flavor is creamy with lovely hints of caramel. It’s nice but there is nothing that makes me go wow.
Decided to try this one out of the Traveling Teabox B. Hmm… I can’t decide if the flavor is good or not… My boyfriend said it tastes like breakfast. Like eggs and hollandaise sauce.. It does have an odd taste to it… It’s sweet from the berries but I don’t think the ginseng blends well. I keep trying to like this cup but.. I just don’t think it’ll happen..
Took this one from the Traveling Teabox B! It smells awesome. The dry leaf has a nice buttery but slightly floral aroma. Mmm I love buttery oolong aromas. Mm this oolong is awesome. It has rich buttery notes with a light floral aftertaste. It’s sweet and has a slight woody-ness to it. Mmm I will enjoy every sip of this one!
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.
Enjoying this out of my gourd. The first steeps are so unbelievably strong but once you get to steep 3 or 4 it’s perfect. I wish someone was here to hang out with me so I could actually pass it around. I’ve always wanted to do that.
This one is from the Traveling Teabox B. I’ve always been curious about this one so I was happy when I saw it in the tea box. Ooo the aroma is delicious! The flavor is nice. Nice juicy tangerine flavor and a nice creamy note. I can even taste the guayusa under it all :]
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.
Aroma is nice. Sweet and earthy but still has that burnt smell to it.
The flavor is sweet and earthy with light hints of honeysuckle.
The aroma is nutty, sweet, and earthy. Mmm the flavor is sweet and nutty with mellow earthy notes. The flavor is mellow and sweet. Slightly floral.
MMm I really enjoy puerh so this was a nice treat.
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 :]
Ooooo the second steep is very nice! Vanilla and butter notes. sweet and rich but smooth. Mmmmm so happy I got to try this :]
