786 Tasting Notes
Well I have been staying up a lot lately and today it finally caught up with me. So I’m here feeling tired but can’t fall asleep D: but then along comes Swiss Vervaine Melange! Hopefully this will help with my problem.
This tea is very odd. In a good way of course. There is just SO much going on with it. Lemony, minty, fruity, spicy. So I’m just going to say it’s very herb-ish. Well it is a herbal tea.. anyways.. I do enjoy this tea enough that it just might have earned a permant spot in my tea cupboard. Well I’m off to see if I actually fall asleep! Nighty night!
This tea reminds me of something from Starbucks.. but a lot better. It has caramel rooibos, chocolate rooibos, and hazelnut rooibos. The most dominant flavor is the hazelnut followed by the caramel. The chocolate lingers in the background. The hazelnut always reminds me of coffee but the carmel and chocolate kind of even it out. This tea is actually pretty good. A nice cup before bed or just to relax with.
The first time I tried this I think I may have steeped it a minute shorter then needed. It was so weak! So I upped it a minute and added just a TINY bit more and it was amazing. This oolong kind of has a heavier flavor. Kind of earthy with hints of woods and a slight apple aftertaste. I really enjoy this one. I wish I had ordered more!
Thank you to Nicole for sending me this! It smells so good in the bag. It’s a bit stronger in vanilla though. As soon as I poured in into my cup I got a HUGE vanilla smell in my face. Oh it was so nice. The taste is mostly vanilla with a hint of jasmine aftertaste. It’s creamy and floral. Very delicious! I think I might have to order more for myself!
I love this peach oolong. It’s one of the only teas I’ve reordered. There isn’t a whole lot of the peach flavor but enough to make it a tad sweet without an icky aftertaste.. It’s kind of a juicy peach though. If you’re in the mood for a mild fruity oolong this might just be the one you’re looking for.
