1592 Tasting Notes

90

I finally opened up a package of this tea that I had bought from Teavivre a long time ago. I love the shiny purple packaging. Upon opening it up, there was another plastic bag inside that I had to peel off the tea leaves. The tea leaves were sticky and looked glazed. I put them in a small teapot and watched as the water turned a translucent and slightly muddy honey color. The leaves expanded and were medium-large in size. I love oolong teas, but this is the first time I have had this blend before. This tea tastes great! It has a floral and sweet taste to it. I love how the honey is infused in this tea, and it isn’t overpowering either. This is a delicious tea. I have one more packet left!

Flavors: Flowers, Honey

I used the last bits of this tea blend to make chai over the stovetop. I used 8 cardamom pods, 6 cloves, a handful of black peppercorn, and a cinnamon stick. It was absolute divine! I made enough for my husband and my dad, and they loved it too. This has a nice tea base, and since the tea blend itself was barely spiced, the one that I had tossed up was perfect with this tea.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 30 OZ / 887 ML

drank Thai Tea by Love is Tea (LIT)

I received this from yssah a long time ago as well! I have always been a fan of thai tea, and I used to make a lot of it at home too. This one is exactly like the tea I used to buy! I can’t smell very well right now because I’m sick, but I can sense slight hints of that warm slightly lemongrass-y, slightly medicinal scent that it usually has. I am awful at describing this scent, but it smells.. well.. just like thai tea. I had to use a finer meshed tea bag for this as there is a little dust in there. It brews a beautiful wild, orange! I brewed this in a mug and added sugar and milk to it. Usually I make this over the stovetop and use sugar and condensed milk. Must do that next time!

hmmmm, thai tea. I always get it at this sushi/thai restaurant I got too. They don’t put lemon grass in though I think.

There’s no lemongrass in it that I could see. It is definitely a different taste. I can’t really describe it. :)

Tamarind? I hear that is an ingredient sometimes.

drank Almond by Love is Tea (LIT)

I received this from yssah a long time ago. I finally was able to sample this. I love the bits of almond in this black tea, and almond tea is one of my favorite teas to drink. I love almonds and almond milk … and I love the warmth and the amaretto taste to it. It is delicious. It goes great with milk and sugar and definitely a good dessert tea.

Flavors: Nuts

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

This is a delicious sample! I love the pellet like black tea. It smells spicy! Added milk and sugar to this tea because it is very strong and astringent without it.

I love dragon well tea. This is a staple green tea for me. This one does not disappoint. It is smooth and buttery! I love this tea. I hope Andrews & Dunham will have more green teas in the future.

drank Caramel Apple Oolong by 52teas
1592 tasting notes

I used up the last bits of my sample! This is super delicious! The brew was a nice, light-medium amber brown. The scent was amazing. It smells exactly like caramel apple! The oolong was a nice base because it didn’t overpower the taste. This is a great blend!

Flavors: Caramel

I finished up my sample! I finally got this right today, which is great! I steeped this longer than usual and it brewed a nice medium brown. The scent was chocolate! I added sugar and milk to it, which definitely brought out the flavors more. It was creamy and I could actually taste a bit of strawberry even though it was faint. Delicious blend.

Flavors: Berries, Chocolate, Cream

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Rose Tea by Lupicia
1592 tasting notes

I received this in a swap a long time ago. I was nervous to try it because of all of the rose petals. They are very pretty and the blend has a little black tea in there. I used the whole sample and steeped it in a small 8oz glass teapot that my mom gave me recently. The rose petals are pink and very beautiful. The liquor was a pale pink/brown. It tasted surprisingly good! It is light and slightly floral. It is not overpowering and not bitter at all. This is a great tea! I wish there was a little more black tea in this blend.
