1108 Tasting Notes


This is super tasty. I’ve been blissing out on it all afternoon long. Nice and comforting for a BUSY day after a holiday at work!

I think the first time I had this one I oversteeped it. I like it much better this time!

Finally brewed this up at home where my variable temp kettle lives, so I can be sure I am doing it right! It is better than the last time I had it, but I think Dragonwell style is one of my least favorite forms of green tea. I’m sure this is a fine Dragonwell if you like dragonwells! I think it’s just too mineraly for me. I can deal with a mineral note along a sweet and floral oolong, but that is 90% what I get out of this one and not much else.


I iced up the re-steep and I actually really enjoyed it this way! Apparently I just don’t like it hot? Weird, but woohoo! I’ll do up the rest of my sample pack iced for sure!


I feel the same way about Dragonwells. Everyone seems to love em but they’re just not for me. Glad I’m not the only one!

Oh gyokuro how I miss you when you are away, hehe. I got my package from yunomi.us yesterday! 4 gyokuros for sampling and some salted Sakura blossoms. Can’t wait to try them all!

This is the best matcha! I had it as a frappe late this afternoon to cool off and re-energize!


Coconut matcha does sound nice. :)

Started my day today with a big to-go cup of this iced. Had a tough time at an outdoor art fest with 100+ degree heat indexes today. After this tea I just drank gallons of water till later on when I got home. Glad it’s over with. Probably one of my least favorite art fairs ever!

Smaug again this afternoon. Still good but I may have needed a little bit more caffeine….Zzzzz…

I made myself a treat for breakfast this morning! 1/2 tsp of this with a small handful of ice, half an avocado, a cup of milk and 2 tsp sugar in the blender. SO GOOD! The white tea flavor goes really well with avocado :)

Wow never would have thought. I can’t wait to try my sample from you:):)


Have you ever had an avocado shake? My husband taught me to make them. He learned about them in Brazil I think. Sometimes adds a drop of rosewater! They’re super tasty even without the matcha :)


Interesting combination! I’ve never had avocado in a shake either.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Never! Rose water??? Love it!!! I just never know where to buy it


Asian food store or international market!

drank Sencha by Harney & Sons

I have no idea where I got this sample sachet from Harney and Sons, but this is not a bad sencha at all! I’m fairly impressed :)

Gosh I love green tea SO MUCH! It’s so perky and green and comforting.


Me too!—which is so weird for me to say because I hated it for the longest time, ha. Yay greens.

Finishing up my sample of this today from BrewTEAlly Sweet :)

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre, Yunnan Sourcing, TeaUrchin, White2Tea and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
