965 Tasting Notes
I have been really looking forward to trying this! I made my first one at work today, so I did not have access to a blender. I took a mason jar with a scoop of the mix and when I was ready to drink it I added around 8oz of milk and shook vigorously. The caramel flavor is AMAZING! There is a slight chalkiness, but I’m going to blame that on me not preparing it according to package directions. I’ll try one this weekend with ice in the blender! Also I’d like to note that this is extremely sweet for me. It seems about the same sweetness level as a Starbucks green tea frappe. I normally drink my matcha lattes with probably half this amount of sugar. No biggie, I’ll just add more milk next time and I think it’ll be PERFECT! :D
Welp, I have a new favorite green tea. Blown away by the Verdant sampler box! Everything was amazing. This is officially my favorite of the group but they were all pretty spectacular. It reminds me of my favorite sencha but richer and more complex. I’m on a buying hiatus right now but I am seriously tempted to order more of this while they still have some…
Wow, just wow. Jasmine teas are one of my favorites, and this one is extra fine! I also really love a thick white silver needle like this. I’ll have to do a side by side tasting with my favorite jasmine pearl tea to see which one is my ULTIMATE favorite jasmine that I will keep in stock at all times!
Yum! Just got this today in a swap with Starfevre (thanks!!!) I made myself a mini serving just now with 1/4 tsp, around 2oz water and a half tsp of sugar. It’s good! I like white tea a lot. It will be interesting to try in lattes in the future, I can’t picture how it would taste with the milk or almond milk, but I like it by itself just fine! :D
I am actually drinking the new autumn harvest version of this tea. I’m not sure if it was the power of suggestion or what, but I taste apricots! There is a richness underneath the floral/apricot note. I am really digging this. Still in the early steepings- I can’t believe I’m supposed to get TEN steepings from these leaves! I am really enjoying this one and I haven’t even sweetened it! I might try sweetening a later steeping just for fun. I usually enjoy a tiny bit of raw sugar in my oolongs.
WOW! This tea is TRUE burnt sugar caramel flavor. Super rich and wonderful! I wish I had ordered more than just a sample of it…there’s a hint of maybe floral on top of it all? I assume that is a note from the oolong itself coming through. Goodness though, wonderful dessert oolong! Makes me think of the crunchy top of a creme brulee.
