1032 Tasting Notes
Thank you Marzipan for the sample! I made this for breakfast without reading what was in the blend. I picked out the citrus notes right away, along with what I thought was vanilla (must have been the cream?) It also has a sweetness about it that I like.
I would never have tasted chocolate in this blend. So in that respect I suppose it might be disappointing. However, it was a really nice breakfast tea that I enjoyed quite a bit this morning, and it paired perfectly with a homemade maple pecan scone! NOMMMY!
I’m only on steep #2 but YUM! This is really good shu. There is a unique sweet/nutty note that I don’t get very often from shu puerh. I know I’ve tasted it before but I can’t remember where?? Mouthfeel is extra luscious with no musty notes. Very toasty, rich and satisfying.
I will definitely be ordering more of these discs when the new blends are up on the website. Definitely hits the spot! :D
Thanks Ost for the sample! :)
Well, this isn’t terrible, or anything, but it isn’t outstanding in any way. I imagine this would be a good one to brew strong, sweeten and pour over ice. The white tea is actually kind of greeny tasting, which doesn’t bother me, but I could see it being too astringent for some folks.
