1602 Tasting Notes

Took this to work today in my Libre mug. I’ve been taking food to work with me everyday. I ran out of meal stubs. :) This particular Earl Grey is so light and delicious. It goes down very smooth. The flavors aren’t in your face as other Earl Grey teas that I’ve tried.

Good tea!

Delicious! I’m not feeling well today, so I decided to have some of this! My attention span only allowed me to do 3 steeps! This hit the right spot today.

I was super excited to break open this tin! The artwork is fascinating and beautiful. I love the grungier colors. Definitely a plus! When I saw all the dried, murky green curled up balls of oolong, I got even more excited! woo! It smelled SO good. It was floral and sweet.

Steeped, the color of the liquor was a nice orange-yellow color. Again, the smell was delightful. I’m not sure what kind of tea this is exactly. It is a scented oolong tea. The taste is so floral, but the first thing I thought of after my first sip was “BERRIES!” There is definitely a light, fluffy berry or fruity taste to it. It is barely noticeable but it adds such a nice touch to this tea. I have to give this tea 100. My favorite right now!

I was able to steep this 3 times via gaiwan but I wanted to write all about it so I stopped steeping! I bet this can go on for more steeps. It is absolutely SO good! It got even better the more I steeped it.

Yum. This log reminded me that I should have some of this somewhere still. I wonder where it is – now I really want to break it out!

This tastes so delicious today! I steeped it for longer than usual and the flavors really came out. The warm spices came out. A great tea overall. It went great with fried rice too!

I wasn’t sure what this was called. I received this in a swap, and it was called Chai Chai Blend with Rock Sugar. Upon further reading its a mix of White Ayurvedic Chai, Samurai Chai Mate, and German Rock Sugar.

From the bag, it smelled like cherry soda. It didn’t translate the same way in the cup. In the cup, it smelled more like sweet ginger and other spices. It brewed a very light white/yellow color. The taste was sweet and delicious! It was mildly fruity and I could taste a tinge of ginger. Overall the rock sugar made it so sweet! Yum!

drank Sweet Autumn Tea by Lupicia

I received this as one of those free monthly samples in the mail. I forgot that the yellow wrapping meant rooibos. Nevertheless, I opened it and realized it was rooibos! It smelled sweet when it was dry. After steeping it, it smelled strange to me. I guess its the sweet potato, pumpkin, rooibos combination that threw me off. I don’t want to type this out… but it smells a little like vomitus… I was hesitant to taste it, but I love trying new things so I put it to my lips. The taste is nice, mild, and sweet! It was flavorful and delicious after I got over the initial scent. It is very very scarcely starchy with a chestnut type of flavor in the background. Delicious.

I used up the last bits of this tea yesterday. It has been so long since I’ve written a lengthy review on steepster or even visited steepster. Residency has taken up a lot of my time and energy. I will miss this tea. It deserves to be placed in my wishlist. The floral and slightly milky scent was delicious! I steeped this about 4 times before I got distracted. It was delicious after every steep. I love how the leaves unfurl. It is so beautiful. Milk oolong is one of my favorite teas. I am happy!

I’ve got to order some of this. I wasn’t terribly impressed when I first tried it, but I love milk oolongs! What size cup did you use to steep so many infusions?

Charisma

I love milk oolongs too! This isn’t my most favorite milk oolong, but its among the top 10 for me! I used a 4oz gaiwan and a lot of leaves. I forget how long I steeped, but it was around 15-30 seconds for the first 2 steeps. Then I increased it to 1 minute for the following steeps. :)
