1592 Tasting Notes

Ever since I gave birth to my baby girl (6 months ago!), my love for tea has been on the decline. I haven’t had time to truly enjoy making and sipping tea. On top of that, my husband and I moved to my parents’ house. They have a keurig. I had succumbed to it! Recently, I have been getting into tea again.

Anyway, today I decided to try this sample. It pains me to have so much tea sitting around! This one smells faintly of sweet syrup. There was one piece of cinnamon and popcorn in this. I was very excited about that. Upon brewing, the cinnamon wasn’t very overpowering. In fact, it was well-blended. This tea didn’t need any additives at all. It was naturally sweet. The black tea base wasn’t overpowering either. Good tea blend overall. Next time I will try to brew this for longer and add milk to see if it changes the flavor at all.

Maybe the problem is partially practical. Hot tea and a baby…dangerous! Try cold brewing loose tea. The hydration is good and tea can be calming.

I received a generous sample from Yssah! Thank you so much. This tea has some rice and popcorn mixed in with the spiky, green leaves, which look like sencha. Delicious blend. It is roasted with vegetal flavors to it that are not too prominent. This is flavorable, however. Good blend.

I finished my little sample that I got from TTB! Delicious tea. I love the deep orange flavors and the spicy cloves. I had to put this tea in a disposable teabag since there were a lot of fine black tea leaves (crushed?). The cloves were blended well and were not overpowering. This is a good black tea that tastes good without additives.

I had one piece from the Traveling Tea Box Pass B, which I think is stuck at the moment! Anyhow, this is a good tea! It smells like sticky rice, and it almost tastes like it too! It is green and crumbly when steeped. I removed the first steep like I usually do with pu-erh, and I drank the next one. I would have done more steeps if I had more time, but I didn’t. It is a mild tasting pu-erh for sure. It is light and brews a pale yellow green color. There is some rice taste to this green pu-erh with slight astringency towards the end of a sip. I am glad to have tried this interesting and new-to-me tea!
