860 Tasting Notes
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 :)
I do love this tea and I’m sad it’s gone. But that means one step closer to reducing my stash and getting new tea! I have a long way to go… D: I like this tea because the coconut isn’t overwhelming. The nutty/buttery oolong is the dominant flavor with coconut kind of hanging out in the background. I added a little bit of honey to this and it tastes exactly like a coconut macaroon. MMmmmm
Third one from by box :3 I thought this one would be taken over by ginger.. But it turns out puerh is the dominant flavor! Ginger kind of hangs out in back in the aftertaste. It has a nice little kick to it but not enough to completely ruin the cup. It complements the puerh’s earthy flavor.
My mom gave me a Numi Puerh set for Christmas so I broke it out this morning and tried few :) This one has a pleasant aroma. Herbal notes with mint and earthy puerh. It has such an interesting taste! Honestly basil reminds me of spaghetti… so now I want to use my gift cart and go to Olive Garden… haha but the flavor is good! Mint, basil, and puerh are all present. Puerh is the dominate flavor followed by mint and finally basil in the aftertaste.
Thank you Angel and Teavivre for a generous sample of this tea! The dry leaf smells sweet and kind of buttery with a touch of floral. The taste is sweet, buttery, smooth, and slightly nutty. It’s very mellow but very easy and smooth to drink. It almost has a silky mouth feel to it :) I really enjoy this green!
