609 Tasting Notes
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!
So, it would appear that I have had this tea before at least 2 times. :) I guess it is unremarkable. Either that or I’ve simply had too many black teas to remember them all at this point. This time I got some mild fruity notes when hot that vanished as the tea cooled. But yeah, unremarkable basic black tea. Thanks, NayLynn!
This smells very spearminty and vanilla-y. There are what look obviously like apple pieces and then a whole ton of little white cubes, which look like sponge pieces but I guess were pineapple? I taste apple, a bit of mint and chamomile – though that isn’t in the listed ingredients. I tried adding cream but that just made it stranger. Another David’s that is not for me. Thanks for the sample, NayLynn!
