860 Tasting Notes

Thank you Alphakitty! This is such a pretty tea! I never, ever have luck with black and green blends. Their either too bitter or too weak. Sadly, this came out as too bitter. The aroma is lovely, though. The flavor is still very floral. The one I taste the most is rose followed by lavender. But it’s still bitter :( it would have been amazing if I didn’t ruin it.

This one is best brewed at around 185—you can get a few steeps out of the leaves too if you still have some! I made it way too bitter my first time too haha

KallieBoo!

I tried 185 but I think I steeped it too long :\ it was still good, just a tad bitter :P

Thanks ToiToi! The aroma of this tea is like a freshly baked vanilla cup cake. Brewed it smells like short bread cookies and black tea. Which by the way is the PERFECT snack. The vanilla is actually pretty strong. Most vanilla teas I’ve tried are weak in flavor. This is the best one I’ve tried yet. It’s creamy, smooth, and now I’m craving the short bread cookies on my kitchen table and I can’t have them :( (I’m in a hotel in the middle of Idaho…) Thanks again!!

ToiToi

Glad you like it! I do agree this one has really strong vanilla fragrance. :) I made milk tea with it quite often!

Thank you Alphakitty! I was excited to try this tea. The aroma of this tea is heavenly. I love the flavors. I can catch some cherry, berry, and almond flavors. It reminds me of a cherry/almond cookie. Mmmm :) thanks again!

Thank you ToiToi! This one smells delicious. Lovely fruit notes. Mostly peach. Once it’s brewed the apricot aroma starts to come out. It came out a bit bitter but it is still good. Has a nice fruity flavor. The bitterness goes away and the peach really comes out as it cools.
Also… Yay for my 300th tasting note :D

Thank you Alphakitty! I think rooibos was an excellent choice as the base. It works well with the other flavors. I’m catching light notes of chocolate and banana. It’s not super strong in both flavors but it’s just enough to make it delicious. It makes me think of banana creamies. It’s sweet and has a lovely creamy note to it. I really enjoyed this blend :) thanks again!

Alphakitty

So glad you like this one, banana is not really my thing so I wanted to find a better home for it ^^

Woke up to this lovely cup today. I love my Breville. :) I haven’t had a good white tea for a while so I thought I’d make this today. This tea has a natural sweetness about it. It’s very delicate tasting and I can catch little fruity, floral notes. Maybe it’s time to place a Teavivre order!

I think I’m getting used to the flavors of this tea. And I like it. I used a little less leaf and got a wonderful sweetness out of it. It still has that astringency to it but not as much this time. There is a bit of a floral note to it, too.. thanks again, Momo!

Woke up to this wonderful tea. The flavor is very crisp and fresh. I’m getting a nice, light vegetal note that has a bit of sweetness to it. Mmm :)

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
