807 Tasting Notes

So I just picked up this nifty little electric kettle and it’s amazing! It heated the water perfectly to 175°. For some reason I feel like I’m getting a little bit of a sweeter flavor from this. It’s delicious.

MMmm I finally tried this one again and it’s much better :] water to matcha ratio is fixed so I’m able to get nice little tart notes of cranberry instead of watered down smartie. Mmmmmmmmmmm :]

Today is a matcha kind of day :] This smells so good! It kind of has a hint of the cherry medicine smell to it but that was expected.. The flavor reminds me of cherry tootsie pops or a cherry sucker :] Oh my goodness. This is good.

I received this as a sample in my last order. Well I needed a nice pick-me-up yesterday (yes I’m back logging) so I thought I’d give this a try. The smell was slightly tart and was so delicious! The flavor was full of creamy, lime goodness. The only complaint I had was that it left a bad aftertaste. I would definitely order this again :]

This sounds really good! I love all things lime. I’m thinking I need to get a DT order together in the near future!

This morning has been interesting… I’m attempting to make a raw tomato bread and my blender wasn’t big enough to hold all of the ingredients so I had to get creative and blend everything separate. Ugh. Let’s hope it turns out.
I needed something to relax with and for me matcha is as relaxing as it gets. I love sipping out of my little bowl :] This smells amazing! It’s more of a raspberry candy smell though, like most of Red Leaf’s fruit matchas. The flavor is light and sweet. To me the raspberry is very juicy and natural tasting. Very nice :] The sweetness of the fruit blends so well with the matcha. MMMmmm :]

175 °F / 79 °C

Thanks Finn88! Well the first time I tried this it was waaaayyy strong. So I cut the brewing time and I’m hoping it’s a little better. Well it’s a little better, but it still has a weird aftertaste. I can get the cola and cherry flavor but the aftertaste is just breaking the deal for me :[ Maybe this will have to be tried as an ice tea or something. More experimenting is to be done! I’m determined to like this tea.

Thanks Ze_Teamaker! I’m having a serious laundry day and I saw the word ‘chocolate’, So I thought eh, why not? The smell of this lovely brew is very minty and herbal. That is exactly the flavor too. Except as it cools I’m getting more and more little hints of the dark chocolate. I really can’t decide if I like this or not. It’s got so much going on with it. I just can’t decide if I like the chamomile and chocolate together…. Hmmm….

Thanks Finn88! I LOVE the flavor of this tea. I’m getting coffee, almonds, and a little sweetness from the chocolate. These flavors blend so well together and it’s not overpowering. The flavors are light but there enough there to have a nice cup :] Thanks again!

When I saw that this tea had pine needles in it, it gained my interest. I did think that this was going to have a stronger pine needle taste to it but it’s actually quite mellow. The flavor is kind of buttery and has a crisp, outdoors thing going on. This tea reminds me of sitting in my tent waiting for the rain to stop then going outside into the crisp, cool, fresh air.

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 :]
