992 Tasting Notes

I think Ost sent me this sample! Thanks Ost!

I like pouchong a lot. Nice and light and floral. Pairs very well with sweet fruit like peaches. Another fruity winner from Lupicia!

Mmm, another awesome sheng sample!

This is tongue tingly stuff. Kind of sweet with pleasant bitterness/astringeny, too. When I exhale after sipping it is like spicy flowers. Very enjoyable and complex!

Love this one

Thank you Marzipan for the sample! I made this for breakfast without reading what was in the blend. I picked out the citrus notes right away, along with what I thought was vanilla (must have been the cream?) It also has a sweetness about it that I like.

I would never have tasted chocolate in this blend. So in that respect I suppose it might be disappointing. However, it was a really nice breakfast tea that I enjoyed quite a bit this morning, and it paired perfectly with a homemade maple pecan scone! NOMMMY!

I’m only on steep #2 but YUM! This is really good shu. There is a unique sweet/nutty note that I don’t get very often from shu puerh. I know I’ve tasted it before but I can’t remember where?? Mouthfeel is extra luscious with no musty notes. Very toasty, rich and satisfying.

I will definitely be ordering more of these discs when the new blends are up on the website. Definitely hits the spot! :D

Yay! So excited to get mine now!!!

Thanks for the sample Ost!

This is a rich, complex black blend. I like it but I feel like it needs something. Like it is missing a top note or needs more natural sweetness? Anyway, this is good but I strongly prefer Golden Orchid and Cocoa Amore :D

I know what you mean about missing top notes. Some teas are all bass notes and while those are tasty, they feel thin or incomplete without the middle and top notes.

Tealizzy

You guys are making me think about that song “it’s all about the bass, ’bout the bass, no treble!” Lol!

I like this horse dancing to that song Tealizzy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qon7K1LfxCY

Another lovely Nina’s sample from Marzipan :)

Mild black with zippy grapefruit tang. Subtle but not in an unsatisfying way. I bet some sugar would really make this one sing!

Thanks for the sample Marzipan!!

Wow, this reminds me of that old Bigelow standard “Constant Comment” tea, but not all fakey and chemical tasting! Also not so in your face strong with the spices. Very balanced and pleasant. Good stuff!

Oh, nice to know!

YUM! This is very good! Thank you Ost for the sample :)

It is very vegetal, with a little sweetness to balance it out. It reminds me of a cross between a milk oolong, TGY oolong and dragonwell green. It has a nice full mouthfeel to it. Quite silky indeed! Good stuff!

Cheri

I really liked this when I had it.

ashmanra

This was one of the first teas that win my hubby over. We love it. They list it as a green but it has absolutely got to be a milk oolong.

Cheri

That’s how I felt about it, too.

drank White Peach by Harney & Sons

Thanks Ost for the sample! :)

Well, this isn’t terrible, or anything, but it isn’t outstanding in any way. I imagine this would be a good one to brew strong, sweeten and pour over ice. The white tea is actually kind of greeny tasting, which doesn’t bother me, but I could see it being too astringent for some folks.
