970 Tasting Notes
Mmmmm. This is the best pumpkin tea I’ve had all season. So yummy. Definitely need to try this as a latte. But I recommend this to everyone who is a fan of pumpkin. It’s creamy and pumpkiny and perfect.
Freaking love this tea. This is the first tea from Tealish that I have absolutely adored. I think I need to stock up. Razmintazz is a close second, but this is my favorite Tealish tea. It’s just so juicy and tasty…yum. The name alone is enough to bring a smile to my face.
Love this tea.
Also, how did I reach almost 80 followers? I am not that interesting! XD
Oh, this is good. It’s so, so good. Hot, it’s delicious. Cold, it’s out of this world. This is the grape flavor that Through the Grapevine promises but doesn’t deliver. But the oolong is present as well, in an amazingly creamy way.
Love. I’m definitely adding this to my “to-order” list.
This was lovely at work today. Juicy and sweet, but not overly so. I have enough left to make a jug of iced tea, so that’s my next experiment. But I think this is one to rebuy, I love a good juicy tea.
Let me put it this way: Saturday, I took a 1 liter thermos of honeybee into work, that’s enough to fill my travel mug 3 times. We were so busy for the whole 10 hours that at the end of the day, I’d only had time to drink half of it. This lovely tea was much needed on that long day. The good news is, the boss (who I was working with directly) told me I did a “phenomenal” job. Unfortunately, I believe I just "phenomenal"’d myself into working every Saturday with him XD.
Hrmmmmm. Just….hrmm. This tea was my tea of the day today, my little liter thermos full as I made my way to what turned out to be a painfully long day at work. It was tasty, sure, but I dunno. It was presented to me as “Mom’s Apple Pie…but better!”, but I have to disagree. Mom’s Apple Pie kept me reaching for more. This tea is just…okay. Probably won’t restock.
Not rating this quite yet, because I think I did something wrong, I must have. I can taste the banana bread, and it’s quite promising, but then it is overwhelmingly bitter. So bitter it erases the taste of everything else. So I’m going to try a shorter steep with a lower temperature. If I get to the end of this 26 g sample without having a good cup, I will cry.
So there are two absolutes in my tea-drinking habits:
1. I will only like a green tea if it is heavily flavored, and even then, it’s iffy.
2. I take my teas with sugar.
And yet, here I am with a straight green with absolutely nothing added to it, and I’m loving it. Loving it! I’ve been absolutely aching to try this tea since I first started chatting with the owner of Verdant Tea, David, about tea folklore and he shared the story of this tea with me.
I even broke out the YiXing teapot we got as a wedding gift and then never used. This is lovely. Incredibly, wonderfully lovely. It tastes green and crisp and delicious. And yes, we both taste snap peas!
Friggin’ love this tea. I was exhausted yesterday with a long day ahead of me, so I made a cup of this to sip on the bus ride to work.
Bad idea. My transit takes about an hour and a half…half an hour into this, the honeybee kicked in and I was WIRED and stuck on a bus for another hour. Booooooooo.
This tea is amazing, though, and gives me a (pardon the pun) “buzz” like nothing else!
Edit: Also! We’re trying to do a bit of stash-busting, so everyone have a look at my tea swap list, let me know if there’s anything you want! I’m sure we can work something out! http://steepster.com/discuss/641-swaps-lets-swap-some-tea?page=10
