1220 Tasting Notes
I am tempted to go out and get some green curry right now to eat with a resteeping of this tea because I bet it would be AMAZING.
I can so clearly taste the coconut milk in here and it is so good. This is the first time I’ve ever had a pouchong but I can taste how good of a tea it is too. Floral, buttery goodness with the most delicious coconut flavor, I do not want to stop drinking this ever (except that there are 5 other Golden Moon teas to try so maybe later).
This is the best tasting coconut tea I’ve ever had, and I really like coconut in tea. I am definitely buying more of this in the future, because this little tin is going to be lucky if it makes it another month around me.
I still am amazed at how this smells like white chocolate and yet contains no chocolate. The cardamom in here is just so good. I love it and the vanilla. I know I said before I thought the vanilla gives it that white chocolate taste but I think it’s also a bit of the cardamom somehow.
I really do love this tea. It’s nice and light from the white tea base but it’s full of such good flavors.
It’s a bummer that the only loose leaf option is to buy a pound or just the sample :(
This is the last tea from the 12 teas of Christmas that I hadn’t tried.
I didn’t think I was going to like this, because I cannot stand that popcorn flavored jelly bean. But it is so very different because the butter here is not disgusting.
It is a savory tea, that’s for sure. It’s a lot like pancake breakfast, but I think even more buttery. The popcorn taste isn’t nasty at all. It’s like a salty aftertaste, with more of a savory taste from the grain. I like it.
We’ll see if it’s enough of a like to spring for some more.
I am not a fan of Assam, which is probably weird because I like malty flavored cold drinks but I guess for me, hot doesn’t do it?
It just tastes like a vanilla aftertaste that typical vanilla flavored things taste like. Where is the in-your-face vanilla others mention? Come to me!
Even though it’s not as vanilla as I hoped, it still tastes a bit like melted ice cream..or maybe that’s just the aftereffects of tasting some Thai tea ice cream at 10am and ice cream is still on my brain…hm…ice cream for lunch.
So apparently my favorite hockey team is run by drama queens who took a player out MID-GAME AND SENT HIM OFF because they traded him. So to enjoy all the ridiculous rumors right now, like he’s going to 3 different teams, I figured this was a fitting tea as they are the Canadiens.
This is still super tasty, and somewhat of a soothing thing to drink so you do not blow up at people on the internets because you are too busy being like “it’s like drinking maple syrup!” to be mad. Now if only I could give it to people through the internet so they calm down…
I saw this in Whole Foods before I saw anything about it…since I saw people say good things and I love cake, I kind of purposely just went back to get it…
O. M. G.
Adding the beetroot to color the tea more red is freakin’ genius, and just like in traditional red velvet you can’t taste it! It is delicious and chocolatey, sometimes I get a big taste of blackberry but that’s no problem.
I swear there’s even this slight tang to it like cream cheese frosting.
Entirely worth the ten bucks for the canister. And I have cake flavored vodka, can anyone say boozy tea latte when I actually buy milk sometime?
I think I prefer oolong by itself…gasp. Or apparently with peach. I don’t know what my thing is with peach, so I figured maybe I’d like orange and got this.
It’s still tasty, but I am just not getting all the things I love about oolong. It’s like they’re hidden behind the orange. It’s a bit more like orange spice than just orange though. Hopefully when it cools a bit more I can taste a bit more oolong! I feel like there’s just maybe a tiny bit of a floral flavor but I require more more more.
When I was taking the infuser out of the teapot, I was hit with the smell…it took me back to when I got a mint chocolate chip Lipsmackers lip balm…wow. That is exactly what this tea smells like.
And it’s kind of not a good thing, because the chocolate scent in that lip balm was so clearly artificial. It smells like chocolate but it’s just not enough like chocolate, you know? That’s how this tea tastes, at least when it cools. Straight out of the pot though it’s not bad.
I do love the cooling of the mint, and every so often I feel a little pinch of the pepper.
I’m not gonna give up on it just because it cools into what tastes like liquid lip balm. It’s too cute for that.
Ok so awhile back I said I got a panda gaiwan on eBay. Here it is with 2 of the cute little cups that came with it! http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxnvzmGPU81qz5e5oo1_500.jpg
Since I somehow had yet to drink this tea I decided to play with the gaiwan finally..man I am glad burning my fingers doesn’t phase me.
I put three steepings of it in my mug and I am melting away in deliciousness. Butter, cream, subtly sweet, you know what, I think frosting should taste like milk oolong.
I can’t say anymore, I’m too busy drinking.
