240 Tasting Notes
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.
Oops! Put this in the Oolong Laoshan first.. my mistake >.<
I had this tea with my dear before he deployed. He likes green teas so I wanted to show him what a high quality green tea tastes like.
We just got back from Thailand, so we were very familiar with the tastes of lychee. As soon as I opened the packet, we both said lychee right off the bat. So strong and delicious, as if I was peeling a lychee!
The tea was very delicious with notes of lychee, creaminess of an oolong, and definite fresh and sweet sugar peas. I really enjoyed this tea, and so did he :)
Such a delicious tea. Glad I decided to break into this one.
It tastes like Laoshan Black, but with a sweeter, more caramel edge. I would say this is closer to a caramel brownie than LB is…. But also with a side of vanilla ice cream. Or maybe is it caramel ice cream with pineapple? It almost reminds me of buckwheat too… one of my favourites for bread. Lovely tea
I had a cup of this today at work. It’s not a tea I crave often, but it was a comforting tea so I went for it today.
My wonderful boyfriend was deployed to Afghanistan yesterday. I’m a sad panda and the tea was a nice choice for a yummy comforting brew with creamy vanilla tones and softer bergamot. I do enjoy this earl… but I would give up all my tea just to guarantee his safe return. sigh
I need more comfort teas. Suggestions open.
