940 Tasting Notes
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!
I’ve been drinking SO much tea today because I woke up with a sore throat. I had a cup of this, several cups of my “wellness blend” from a local shop with echinacea, licorice root, chamomile and mint, and a cup of banana dream pie. Not going to review anything till my palette is accurate again. Meh. What a waste of a gorgeous day outside AND a day off work feeling crummy :/
MMmm, this is a nice comforting cup on a rainy afternoon. Mild black tea with berry and vanilla flavoring. I’m drinking it sweetened, and am getting just a tiny bit of pleasant tartness from the raspberry. Very tasty, but I’m not getting any “cake” flavor from it. Smells WONDERFUL.
Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet!
Ahhh. This is just what I needed this afternoon. Super rich, dark, and spicy! It tastes like unsweetened Mexican chocolate, with a touch of earthy pu-erh and citrus peel. Sweetened this would be an AMAZING dessert or latte tea! Another winner from my box of goodies from BrewTEAlly Sweet :D One of the best I’ve had from Della Terra actually!!!
Mmmm! Creamy limey goodness! So smooth! I’m fairly impressed with this David’s blend. If I ever end up buying some I’ll probably mix it with some additional sencha, as its light on the actual sencha. I am drinking it hot but I’ll probably try the rest of my sample over ice.
Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet! :)
I got this in a swap with T.C. WAY earlier this year! It has just been hanging out in my fridge…I never tried it because upon sniffing it I could tell it was SPEARMINT matcha. I’m really picky about mint at times and generally strongly prefer peppermint! I decided to taste it this morning to make sure it is fresh before I pass it along to another Steepster in a swap! I prepared it as a hot latte with honey, and it is indeed fresh, and better than I expected! I suspect it would be AMAZING mixed with some HOT CHOCOLATE! :D
