617 Tasting Notes
I bought a sample of this with my last Verdant order. I love green teas, but this is not my favorite. I feel like I should love it though! I wonder if I am steeping it wrong or something. It is a little bit too astringent or something for me. I do appreciate the vegetal and mineraly flavor and sweet smell. Also there is a richness I appreciate. Maybe I just steeped it too long…
I got this in my swap with brewTEAlly sweet
Hmm…I’m not sure what to make of this! It’s kinda vaguely green tea and fruity flavored, lol. Maybe I’m not big into bamboo. I think I’ve only had it in tea one other time and it was strongly artificially flavored (Bamboozled from David’s) so I couldn’t really even taste the bamboo. Anyway, it was fun to try this but it’s not really my thing :)
I forgot to pack tea to drink at work this morning! Luckily I have a few bagged teas in my desk for emergencies, so it is time to try this one.
WOW, this will teach me to forget to bring tasty tea! Bleh! Super bitter, vague fakey citrus taste…count me out! The only thing pleasurable about it is the scent. Also HURRAY I can smell things again! Glad I only had the one bag of this though.
Yum! I think I really like this, but I’m not going to rate it till I’m 100% over my cold. I am feeling 50% better today though, yay!! Anyway, I love pineapple, and jasmine, and green and white tea :) I don’t really get why the corn is in there it whatever, doesn’t bother me.
Thanks again for the swap brewTEAlly Sweet!
