258 Tasting Notes
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.
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.
I iced a big bodum of this today as well. For some reason, I never seem to get the caramel flavours of this. I do always get a strong lemony bergamot with stone fruits and some vanilla wafers in the background. I like it, but I do find the bergamot to be a little overpowering sometimes. Florence is more delicious in my opinion, though this is still a delight to drink (especially as a base for an iced matcha shake with almond milk)
I made a massive bodum of this for icing. The first thing that it reminded me of was long life oolong by DT. I think I like this one better, as I can taste the green and black tea, sans the floral that I get with the LLO due to the oolong base.
Overall it’s refreshing. Peachy keen and does not need sweetening for iced which I really like. I don’t think I’ll restock this, but I am enjoying it as a nice summer drink
