235 Tasting Notes
This is delicious.
Thick and creamy with a nice pine-like brightness that is sweet, similar to my beloved Silver Buds.
I definitely see the crispness like fresh napa cabbage (slight twinge of bitterness that makes you salivate) or fresh granny smith apple (like when you bite in and your tastebuds go wild with the sweet tart flavour).
Yum. Yum Yum
I iced this crazy tea as I didn’t really care for it that much hot, so I wanted to see how my opinion changed when it was cold brewed.
It’s good, probably better than hot brewed (it’s been a while).
I find though there is a strong note of dirt and wood.
Under that strong note is a mushroomy black tea that is sweet with hints of possibly malt, though not the characteristic malt you get with a black tea.
I like cold steeping this tea better I think, but its still not a favourite.
I hoarded this tea. Thankfully, I have the early picked spring from this year.
Definitely still creamy and delicious though!
It’s such a lovely sweet TGY filled with honeysuckle and what reminds me of mango sticky rice with mung beans. This may be due to the thickness of the liquor for the coconut aspect, but the aftertaste I’m getting for the 9th infusion reminds me of perfectly ripe mango. There is a bit of a vegetal broth-like note that reminds me of the mung beans. Oh Thailand. I miss you
This is such a delicious tea. I can’t believe the flavour even after all these months!
Had two cups of this tonight. It’s nice, but I find it a little strong on the florals side of things. Maybe my water was too warm? Occasionally I felt like I was drinking perfume.
I can see the potential it has, so maybe I should just play around with the steeping parameters. It did have really nice rock sweetness to it. I have hope.
I picked up 50g of this to ice finally.
SO SO GOOD.
I’m drinking it today instead of coffee, which has sadly taken over due to its availability and energizing characteristics.
I need to suck it up and just drink my tea all the time, instead of saving it for when I have filtered water only. Aka.. I need to be less of a tea snob so I can actually drink the tea!
…..Either that, or buy a water filter for the office. Thoughts?
Onto this tea:
Cold-brewed in the fridge results in an amazingly creamy lime gelato flavour. I honestly am so satisfied with this flavour as it tastes like creamy and sweet lime gelato.
I love this tea.
So many cocoa notes and good malty comfort.
It reminds me of the last week my love was here before he deployed. He made me this tea every morning with breakfast. First time in a long time that I’d eaten breakfast, or made tea in the morning. I can’t function in the morning you see. Definitely a night owl!
Regardless, after a 12 hour shift, this is a lovely tea with good memories attached.
