487 Tasting Notes
YAY! My Persimmon Tree samples came in the mail yesterday! I went with the white sampler, but after seeing how nice it is I think I’ll end up ordering the green sampler as well. Anyway, this is the CREAMIEST coconut tea I’ve ever had! It makes me think of a coconut pudding. Delicate white tea flavor, too. Mmmm…quite nice :)
Blech. I made a jug of this iced. I’m getting mostly rose from it. Very little tea or any other flavors. It is a nice, natural rose scent/flavor, but I guess I’m just not into rose tea. I love roses though…one of my fave flowers :) anway, I’ll probably swap the rest of this in a week or two when my schedule is less hectic, so if you’d like to try it leave me a note!
Classic straight black tea! Naturally sweet and somewhat fruity. There is a tangy wine-like quality to it. I did not expect much from these fannings, but I was more than impressed. That is what I get for doubting Nina’s! Everything is top notch.
Thanks again for the samples, Laurent :)
Happy Friday everyone! Man I love this tea. I am drinking it warm today but I need to try it iced, SOON! And maybe buy some real watermelon to eat, too. So super hot here in southern Indiana right now. Luckily nice and icy cold here in my office though, heh.
YUM! This is the last of my untasted samples from my most recent Verdant purchase. “Rich” is the first word that comes to mind. I’ve never tried Big Red Robe straight, but now I am curious about that one. The dark roasty teas and cacao nibs are nicely balanced by the cooling chamomile and mint. Man, I think this would be an excellent fall/winter blend. I could see craving it in the winter! Really quite good. I’m enjoying it without sweetener, but I bet a little bit would really kick it up a notch :)
It is a pu-erh kind of day today. I have PLENTY of teas right now, but not a whole lot of pu-erhs I really like, and only one serving of this one left!
Ahh, this is much better. Had to get the icky rooibos taste out of my mouth! Mmm, jasmine :)
It is unfortunate that I am the first one to review this tea. I really do not like rooibos! I did try it anyway, and I can appreciate the black tea in this blend, and the vanilla/orange flavor, but that is about it. I think a rooibos lover might really dig this tea.
Sorry Laurent! Thanks for the samples though :)
Finally trying my foxy roxy sample! I love how this tastes exactly like banana bread, yet I can still taste the delicious base tea underneath it. I’m shocked at how natural the banana tastes! Kudos Stacy. This is a delicious tea :)
This is a pretty decent as a flavored iced tea. Your basic “tropical” fruit flavor with a decent enough generic green base tea. I bought it because the proprietor told me it was her most popular selection. I actually preferred the Mystic Dragon! But both are fine. These flavored greens are the kind of thing I prefer iced, which is perfect for summertime! :)
