836 Tasting Notes
I had been hoarding the last of this sample which I got with a Mandala order a while back. This is probably one of my favorite shu puerhs. I’m pretty sure I prefer it to the famous Phatty Cake as well! I will just have to order more eventually.
Happy Mother’s day to all the Steepster moms!!! Hope you have great days :)
Thanks Marzipan for a sample of this tea!
I have electricity again, YAY! Apparently what we experienced yesterday was a “Macroburst”. They’re kinda scary! We were also pretty lucky. I think we are one of few houses in our neighborhood without some kind of property damage.
So, this tea is pretty good for an herbal. Chocolatey chai is exactly what it tastes like! I still prefer a more bold flavor than most herbals can give me. I might give some of this sample to my mom for Mother’s day tomorrow to see if she likes it. She can’t have caffeine at all but really enjoys tea and anything chocolatey :)
No notes yet. Add one?
I’m finally tasting the 2014 version! Thanks for the sample Garret
Well, this is a delicious sheng. Not the same as 2012…no smoke at the beginning, a little more bold. Still VERY enjoyable though with a great energy! I’m glad to report that it is a suitable replacement for the last harvest :)
I still plan to use the rest of my sample to do a side by side comparison! Then I should be able to write a better note! :D Fun!!
Thank you so much Courtney for sharing some of your precious Bavarian Cream with me!
This is one of my favorite matcha flavors now. Really good and creamy and vanilla-y :D
It has been a really long time since I actually ate anything filled with Bavarian cream, but it seems pretty spot-on flavor wise!
Thank you Marzipan for a sample of this tea!
This is quite good chocolate tea. So many of them I have tried were artificial tasting, or not paired with a nice base tea…this one is good though! Not quite as good as Fauchon chocolate eclair, which is my favorite, but definitely one of the better ones I’ve had :)
