691 Tasting Notes
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!
This is definitely the WRONG time for me to be tasting such a delicate tea for the first time-I’ve got a cold and my sense of taste and smell have definitely been deadened a bit. I was determined to taste a cup today anyway, because I’m placing a Verdant order today. (Last day of Laoshan teas 25% off!) Thanks so much for including this in our swap BrewTEAlly Sweet!
My first steep has a pine/spicy note. Completely unlike anything I’ve ever tasted! I would call this steep savory and not sweet.
2nd steep and the spicy pine note has blossomed a bit more. The liquor feels thick but tastes so light!
I’m definitely going to need to at least get another sample of this when I order today, so I can try it again when my palette is clear.
I feel like I’m tasting the secret heart of the tree. Something pure and wild and normally meant only for itself. This may not end up being something I want to drink every day, but it is definitely something I’d like to explore in more detail! Thanks again BrewTEAlly Sweet!!!
