33 Tasting Notes
I made a wonderful soy matcha latte to get myself emotionally prepared for the huge snow storm that is coming to Utah. I whisked 2 teaspoons of this matcha in about 3 tablespoons of hot water. When it was well blended, I stirred in about 8 ounces of soy milk. I highly recommend you try it.
I’m not normally a fan of Japanese green tea, but I picked this one up on a whim. It is very mild and not too vegital, so it has been a very enjoyable tea for me. It took a few tries for me to brew it correctly, so be careful. It is easy to over steep.
So far, this is my favorite green from Teas, etc. It is mild and not too grassy.. a great afternoon treat.
I love drinking a pu-erh in the morning. Probably because it looks like coffee. This morning, this cup from teas etc. hit the spot!
I usually love pu-erh tea, but this one tasted particularly fishy this morning. And not in a good way.
As a long time fan of Adagio’s golden monkey, I thought I’d try this version. It was decent, but didn’t quite pack the punch that I was anticipating. Next time, I will try to make it a bit stronger.
I’m enjoying a bagged tea at work this afternoon. The lemongrass flavor overpowers any green tea that may or may not be present. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable afternoon tea.
This is a an average pu’erh. The flavor profile is rather one-dimensional. I enjoy drinking this in the mornings at work because it is dark and strong enough to be a good coffee alternative, and the pressed mini cakes make preparation simple.
Chinese green teas are very underrated in the tea world. I encourage all the Japanese Tea fans out there to try a Chinese green tea today.
This one is light and only slightly vegetal. A perfect complement to the Thai food I enjoyed for lunch.
I’m closing out the day with a mug of this white peony sweetened with a hint of agave nectar. Goodnight, folks.
