224 Tasting Notes
Made 2 matcha rolls today – one with pistachio creme, other one with strawberry yogurt creme. And after that i needed refreshment so i made a nice latte. Everything is so yummy :D
Enjoy the pics:
Another sampler and another tea that has been awarded for good taste.
Leaves smell like really fresh grass. Nice dark green color.
Tea is dark yellow and smells really nice.
It’s very good. Gotta wait a bit to define it cuz i had sheep cheese for dinner and it’s kinda still there on my taste buds.
Well to me it tastes similar to Dragon Well. But bit better. Easier to drink. This is best oolong I’ve had so far. The oolong tastes starts then it ends with that dragon well taste. Awesome combo.
Oh idk I just like it…
I did 3 steeps – just as good. Its a multi-steep tea ;)
Yay i got my DoMatcha tin yesterday. Won it on a FB recipe contest. Gonna make the matcha roll tomorrow. Today i started my day with a matcha latte :D
I absolutely love the fact that you can make so many different yummy things out of a tin of matcha. And this one is indeed a very tasty one too…
No more words here are the pics…
I just read the short story that was inside the Lost Malawi tin. Such an awesome idea to do that.
This one is slightly darker than the Emperor’s breakfast. It’s supposed to be a strong black tea. Color is more red than brown. I’ll post photos some other time since i got a whole tin of this one :D Smells creamish too. I know – weird word for a smell – but it really smells like it’s going to be creamy. I kinda like it when a tea actual tastes the way it smells – well when it smells good (duh). I don’t mind a bad smelling tea surprising me with a good taste ;)
1st steep 3,5 min
It’s less sweet than the Emperor’s breakfast. Tastes nice earthy, smooth and round. I can hint a bitter note. It’s quite good.
2nd steep 5,5 min
Much lighter than the 1st steep. Tastes different. Less smooth. More watery and bit bitter. Still don’t mind drinking it tho. But its a one steep tea i’d say…
Another thing i like about this company is that, on their website, they write down which of their teas, and in which percents, make good combos. Like – i remember reading that it’s good to add half a teaspoon of Lost Malawi in Emperor’s breakfast to make it tad stronger. There was also an oolong combo which sounded even more interesting.
Btw in the tea description here on Steepster you got a link to a kewl video about where this tea is made. Actually here you go:
I made tea from half a sampler again. Hope its enough to tell ;)
This one is one of those gentle breakfast blacks.
Leaves are nice black and yellow and totally twirled. Folks i think i found an amazing Tea company – and it was totally by chance…
Color is quite light for black tea. Smells very interesting. Kinda smells like it has milk in it :D Creamy smell.
Mmmm this is yummy! Another one i regret ordering just a sample ;) Best black I’ve ever had. Yumm. No bitterness at all. But you can still tell its black. Reminds me a bit of english breakfast. Its kinda sweetish creamy and earthy. Plus that awesome basic taste. Siiiigh… so good…
Giving it a second chance. OK it was the sink water that made it bad last time. Its grassy, smooth, just slightly oolongy – on the green side of it. I must say it tastes quite good this time. Really nice smooth taste. Very good drink when i want something plain and not sweet.
Very good rating. It’s a nice cuppa of tea.
