836 Tasting Notes
Drinking this one this afternoon to compare to the David’s Pumpkin Chai I had this morning. Well, they’re really in two totally different leagues. First off, this isn’t even a chai, though it does have somewhat prominent cinnamon/nutmeg notes. 2nd of all, I can actually taste the base tea! Clean is how I like to describle this Ceylon. Also, the pumpkin is detectable and not at all artificial. Adding brown sugar really upped the brûlée notes. Sorry David’s, Butiki always wins in my book!
YUM. As I was brewing this one, the caramel scent was driving me WILD! It is a heavy, rich and earthy puerh base, but the sugary sweet caramel overtones complement it wonderfully. Thanks very much BrewTEAlly Sweet for including this in our swap! I went on the Enjoyingtea website and am sad that the smallest amount they sell is 4oz. With the kind of stash I have, I try to buy 1oz or less of most teas.
I should have ordered way more of this wonderful tisane. I’m going through my pouch alarmingly fast, and it isn’t even cold outside yet! Next time I place a verdant order I should order like 4 oz or something, lol :)
This brew has been very good to me since I’ve been sick. I’ve been stirring a honey/turmeric paste in with this in the evenings and I think it has really helped. I feel almost better already!
I REALLY enjoyed this today. I savored 2 steeps, one before and one after lunch. I could see myself getting into darjeelings! Despite my head cold I got lots of sweet grassy, flowery, hay like flavor from both steeps. Somehow it tasted like a sunny autumn meadow in a cup!
Thanks very much teamore for including this bonus sample in our swap :D
Hmm, this is interesting. I’m not ready to rate it yet, but my review is mostly positive!
First of all, this tea smells GREAT! The flavor is like if you mixed spiced apple cider half and half with some weak green tea. I feel like this is probably a Dragonwell type base, which is not my favorite type of green tea, and I think whatever it is could stand to be a little more assertive. I think if I steeped this a little stronger next time I will like it even more! Also I bet it’d be super good sweetened with brown sugar or maybe buckwheat honey!
Thanks teamore for this swap sample! I was really glad to try this one :)
Holy cow, this is unflavored? Even with my cold I am still getting SO MUCH caramelly goodness from this tea! Could it be that I’ve never had a milk oolong before? How did that happen???
Thank you so much BrewTEAlly Sweet for this sample! This is definitely something I want to explore in more detail!
