659 Tasting Notes
I’m so glad to have finally tried a straight yerba. (Shouldn’t we just call it yerba if it’s not in a mate?)
Classic choice from Monstrositea and the fourth of four from the August box. Hooray for this! Glad to finally try it after being curious (and yet hesitant) for so long. I have gladly found that I really enjoy it.
My first taste of this sample was pretty negative, but I had some (recommended) dried pineapple in there with it. I think it was the dried pineapple that threw me off, actually. I gave it another go sans additions and it was much more like a Sencha I’m used to, but with the guts of an Aussie-grown blend in there. Interesting.
I’m going to try the last of this Monstrositea sample with some other Sencha I’ve got in my cupboard. (Then I’ll be able to sip down some more Sencha too, which is good for someone who isn’t often drawn to drinking greens.)
I really like this one as a refresher, a palate cleanser. I don’t really get any of those yoghurt/creamy notes but that might be due to the age of the blend? In any case I really don’t mind; I’m a fan.
Rediscovered my enjoyment of this blend lately and am quickly getting through the last of the supply that ashleyelizabeth sent on my fateful first Steepster swap!
