596 Tasting Notes

My favorite jasmine pearls. Light, subtle, delicious. Don’t use too many!

Have you ever tried SpecialTeas’ jasmine pearls? They’re my current favorite – although Canton’s are pretty darned good too!

Arg, My Canton Tea Gold Award Pack is sitting at my office and I’m away at meetings for the week. Reading all the reviews is killin’ me! I can’t wait to dive into these.

Smooth and slightly savory. Need to spend more time with this.

Enjoyable. Strong honey notes. I prefer Canton Tea Co’s Magnolia Blossom Dan Cong, however, this tea may be more accessible.

Blow me away why doncha? Herbal, sweet…Kusmi is right, this does taste like a liqueur. Delicious. Simply delicious.

There is a liquor connection. There’s a vodka infused with buffalo grass called Żubrówka. (Note the similarity in name.)

This is my morning tonic with a dollop of virgin coconut oil. Works well for Atkins dieters!

Cofftea

Is that as nasty as it sounds? I mean, it sounds effective?, but… lol

Lainie Petersen

Hah! Well, it isn’t awesome, but here is the deal: I love coconut oil as cooking oil and spread on low-carb toast with peanut butter and in cooking, etc. But I take coconut oil as a supplement, which means I have to down a lot of it during the day. It is very disagreeable to swallow oil (no matter how good it tastes in food) on its own, so adding it to a hot beverage helps. Since this tisane is also part of my regimen, it makes sense to combine them.

Sorry you asked? :-)

Cofftea

Well at 1st I read “olive” oil (brain on default, I suppose)… but coconut oil even sounds nasty (even if I would love coconut) lol.

Lainie Petersen

Hah! Coconut oil, particularly virgin coconut oil is actually really good. One of the best oils for green veggies. I put broccoli, etc, into a pan (dry) and let them cook a bit, then at the end of the cooking, I lower the heat and put in some coconut oil. (Virgin coconut oil doesn’t do well at high temperatures for too long.) It melts on contact, and I toss the veggies around. A little bit of salt, and ooh, so good!

Cofftea

lol well I like neither broccoli or coconut:) Go figure why I’m so in love w/matcha based on my dislike for greens lol.

Stephanie

This tonic combo actually sounds delicious! I have to try it. I love coconut oil!

Lainie Petersen

Stephanie: At the very least, it works, and isn’t a bad start to the morning.
