488 Tasting Notes
I can’t remember who sent me this sample in a swap, but thanks whoever it was!!!
It was maybe a month ago and I lost it but just found it again today :)
This is your basic chinese restaurant jasmine tea. Decent, very drinkable, but I have jasmine pearls I enjoy more. If it is really as inexpensive as everyone says, I may have to buy a tin for iced tea making! I’ve actually seen this at my local Asian market so that would be nice and convenient, too.
I woke up today in the mood for a puerh! That has never happened to me before! Interesting how our tastes develop :)
SO good iced! So good!!!
Peanut butter, apple, and matchaccino snack! http://t.co/Au97oAdE3w
I’m off work today babysitting the ceiling repairman fixing our living room. Since I’m at home where my kyusu is I decided a pot of sencha would be perfect! :)
Apparently this was from my very first Butiki order! I had one tsp left and it got lost at the bottom of the abyss that is my tea drawer. I dug it out this morning and have been enjoying it today. I can’t wait to place my next Butiki order! I’m running out of my favorites :( This one would be wonderful iced all summer long…
So glad I bought this one! Coconutty afternoon here :)
Today brewed 2tsp with 8oz water at 170 degrees for 90 seconds. Mmmmm tasty! So fresh. I LOVE sniffing the dry leaf. Almost intoxicating just smelling it!
Thanks to Angel and Teavivre for a sample of this tea!
I love silver needles- the little fuzz all over the leaves just makes it seem so alive!
This might be the RICHEST white tea I’ve ever tasted. It is hard to describe. The smell of wet straw dipped in white chocolate maybe? Its sweet, earthy and VERY smooth.
If you like white teas this one is a sure bet!
Oh how I love green teas! This was my first straight Dragon Well. Thank you Angel and Teavivre for the sample :)
I’m really much more familiar with Japanese greens. This is a less grassy and buttery than a sencha, but it is still sweet and very vegetative. It reminds me of steamed broccoli, where a sencha would remind me of kale or spinach. It is rich without being buttery, but VERY smooth!
Extremely enjoyable, thanks very much Teavivre!
