865 Tasting Notes
Does anyone else enjoy looking back at their old tasting notes? I think they are silly. I’m surprised I haven’t drank this one down faster. This has been one of my favorite teas and I only have about two cups left D: The flavor is still spot on. Delicious banana and cheesecake notes. The genmaicha gives it that crust flavor. Mmmmm
I finally have a few days off from work. And do you know what I’m going to do? Drink obscene amounts of tea! I’ve missed my tea :( Anyways, I’ve been saving the last of this sample for when I can just enjoy it. I love this tea! It’s sooo good. It reminds me of those cinnamon almonds you get at sporting events or any kind of event, actually. It’s full of cinnamon, almond, and custard flavors. Mmmm :)
Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon, Custard, Sugar
This was a sample sent to me by Shmiracles. I usually try to stay away from lapsang blends but this one had a different aroma to it. It pulled me in. The flavor is so much more than smoky lapsang. It’s tingly and slightly spicy. The peppermint and ginger/cinnamon make the lapsang a little less overwhelming. It’s a delicious blend and would make a nice winter time tea!
Also received this one in a swap a loooooong time ago. I was craving a muffin this morning so I thought this could do the trick. I’ve been excited to try this rooibos but there just hasn’t been a good time to try it. So I’m doing it now! I added a touch of honey. The aroma of the tea is just delicious :) And the flavor is very muffin like. It even has that moist muffin-y feel. It’s sweet and even has a nice nutty flavor going on. It kind of mixes with the butter flavor. Oh. This is really a good rooibos. I’m kind of sad I don’t have more of it :(
