671 Tasting Notes
I am not sure at all what the name of this tea is but it is from L’Angelica Istituto Erboristico. The best I can tell from using Translate is that it is an Italian company involved in healthy solutions for living. :)
JanieTeo sent this in the Christmas card swap. Her note on the package said “lavender, damiana and wild rose.” It smells heavenly. The taste is sweet, floral and fruity. I would guess this is a tisane. It is one that I would love to keep on hand if I ran across it somewhere. Very good!
This was just odd. There were nice fruity notes but then a smoke smell to it that killed it for me. This was woody and dusty, which I usually like, but then that smoke… not so much a smoke taste as a smoke smell. As it cooled I also picked up what I think were spice notes. Thanks for the sample, Ost!
Can’t believe I haven’t had this before. Hm. Since the white tea isn’t very strongly flavored, the bergamot really comes to the forefront and pops up in your face. This is a super highly perfumed tea. I generally like EGs but I also like to taste tea with them. I don’t think I’d choose a white EG over a black, based on this experience. Thanks for the sample, cookielady!
This smelled like wine and chocolate. After steeping it smelled like hot cocoa and coffee beans. 2 1/2 minutes was either far too long or I used far too much leaf. This was really bitter. I tried adding sugar to see if it would level out the bitterness somewhat but no luck. It just turned odd. Thanks for the sample, NayLynn!
Maybe it was just my imagination but the scent of this was very strongly milk chocolate. :) Taste was a a bit non-specifically fruity. The wet leaves smelled of wine. And I poured some into a clean paper cup to test the milk chocolate thing I don’t think I was crazy -this smells like a Hershey bar! :) I might quite like to have this on hand some day. Thanks for the sample, Ost!
