243 Tasting Notes
Again from the virtual tasting…
Mmm cinnamon. This is pretty good, I love white tea but I don’t have a lot of white tea blends. The orange/citrus is fairly light, at leas to me, I could actually stand more (I love orange!) but I’m not sure how well orange peels transfer the taste. The chocolate is there was well, again light but I’m okay with that. Super tasty, love the stuff sTEAp Shoppe does, definitely planning a future order (with more Smokey Mountain sTEAp!
From the virtual tasting earlier today…
This one may need to be renamed, but it was still super tasty.
There was a definite milky quality to this, like I had added a bit milk already. Smooth and creamy. I had trouble tasting the caramel, but I could definitely smell it in the cup. For a tea with chocolate in the name, I didn’t get a lot from this blend. The fenugreek was interesting (at least I think that’s what I tasted), definitely need to get my hands on this so I can at least smell it plain.
Yum! I think it’s super awesome that sTEAp Shoppe doesn’t use “flavor enhancers” as they call them. Not that that’s a big issue in this tea, but something that I just find kinda of cool!
Anyway, on to the tea. I love green tea and mint, be it peppermint or spearmint. Either works! This one has peppermint but not a overpowering amount (which is really easy to do with peppermint). Not sure what the ginkgo brings, I’d have to see what it tasted like on it’s own. The stevia adds a nice sweetness, but again not too much. Nice cuppa. :)
