866 Tasting Notes
Thank you so much to Angel and Teavivre for sending me a generous sample of this tea. The dry leaf is a beautiful grass green. The aroma of the dry leaf is buttery and leafy. The flavor is rather different than other tie guan yin oolongs I’ve had. Usually I’m used to strong floral flavors but this has much deeper flavors. It’s woodsy, buttery, floral, sweet, and a touch of creaminess. I’m going to enjoy a few more steeps of this one :3
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Sweet, Vegetal, Wood
Another one gone! I completely forgot I had this tea. Good thing I’m going through my stash :3 I enjoy roasted mate far more than I enjoy regular mate. It’s a bit smoother. The flavor is still with this one. It has a nice cakey feel to it and is even complete with cream cheese frosting :3 This one will be missed.
Aaand it’s gone! I really liked this chai. Usually all chai’s taste the same to me but I love the chocolate in this one :3 This one is strong in the cinnamon and clove but the milk chocolate flavor mellows the spice and kind of rounds it.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Sugar
Another one gone! Yay! I feel so successful in clearing out my stash tonight. I will miss this one and probably restock soon! The flavors I’m catching are: strawberry, cream, a nutty flavor, and an earthy puerh. They blend so nicely together :3 I forgot how much I love this one.
Flavors: Cream, Earth, Nutty, Strawberry
Randomly picked this one tonight. I completely forgot I had this one. It’s enjoyable while I’m cooking dinner. It’s enjoyable. The oolong stands out in this one. Kind of a mineral flavor but still sweet. The strawberry and champagne lend kind of a tart note but blends well with the oolong :)
