940 Tasting Notes
Thanks so much Cameron B for the sample!
This is a very cute tea and tasty too! I like it very much but it isn’t blowing me away like it has some of the other reviewers, perhaps because I’ve had quite a few other equally tasty Yunnan blacks :)
Good stuff though! Definitely my kind of thing. Glad I got to try it.
What? No one has reviewed this one yet?? OK, I’ll give it a shot :)
I just steeped up a cup. It smells SO plummy! I can taste plum and the brandy too, and some creamy something or other that my brain is trying to make cheesecake. I’m drinking this unsweetened so I’m sure sweetening it would boost the dessert-like factor, but I like it plenty well unsweetened!
I feel the base is perfectly matched here, and plum is such an unusual flavor to find in tea. Quite interesting and unique!
What a unique and delicious young sheng!
It reminds me of sencha, oddly enough. It is very sweet and sort of vegetal. It has a pleasant and delicate huigan, and is light on the cha qi scale. This might be good for people who are unsure about puerh but really love green tea!
I’m glad I got to try it :)
No notes yet. Add one?
Thanks Cameron B for letting me try the non-rooibos version of this tea.
I actually drank this one yesterday but was too lazy to log it at the time. SO MUCH BETTER WITHOUT THE ROOIBOS! Very yummy actually :D
I sometimes sweeten teas when I’m at home, so I tried it that way. Very s’mores a licious. heh. I actually quite enjoyed the smokey element.
Thanks for the sample Cameron B! :D
I hot steeped this one and poured it over ice to take to work with me this morning. I find I like these fruity Fauchon teas iced the best. The peach is very nice and the thyme is not too strong or too weird or too overpowering. I’ll definitely pick up a tin if I ever see one at TJ Maxx, but I checked my local store again last night and we are still Fauchon-free.
Now I kind of want to experiment with peach/thyme flavored desserts…ooh or maybe jam!!!
I totally forgot about this sample! Yang-Chu included it with my portion of the group TeaUrchin order. Thanks again!
It has a mild but pleasant bitterness, and its flavor lingers in my throat. It has a nice flavor but isn’t very sweet. I like it, but I do prefer some other shengs in my collection :)
It is hitting the spot. I was definitely in the mood for sheng this morning!
