991 Tasting Notes
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
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.
Thank you so much Ost for the sample!
This tea wasn’t even on my radar…but it should have been. It tastes just like one of those crunchy almond cookies some Chinese restaurants serve. YUM! My only complaint is the base tea is kind of flat and boring. Which is really the problem with most flavored teas, no matter how good the flavoring! sigh
