1032 Tasting Notes
I’ve been alternating between excited about and scared of this tea, LOL!
It SOUNDED delicious…then the dry leaf smelled kind of weird…then once steeped up it smelled delicious. I’m picky about my cinnamon teas so this was quite a gamble!
But I like it! I can’t really taste the puerh. Maybe it is adding to the earthiness of the coffee aspect of the flavor though. The cinnamon is definitely there but pretty mild. I don’t get the cookie part but I’m drinking this unsweetened and without milk. I have a feeling this is another one that would be really incredible if sweetened. I’m sure it would be fabulous brewed up extra strong with some sugar and cream, like a cinnamon latte :)
Thanks for the sample Angel and TeaVivre!
So excited to break in to my oolong samples, and this one was first on my list! I think Dan Cong is probably my favorite type of oolong, though I’ve only had a couple of different Dan Congs so far. This one is roasty and sweet, with a smooth sweet potato/honey thing going on. It is nice, but I prefer a more floral type of Dan Cong myself. If you like dark and roasty oolong you will probably dig this one!
No notes yet. Add one?
OMG! Thank you Cameron B for the sample of this tea…and she tells me it originally came to her from Dexter so thank you both SO MUCH!
WOW, so apparently I LOVE Tahitian vanilla beans in tea. The two from Whispering Pines that include them are my favorites from this company so far and maybe 2 of my favorite teas of all time! The dry leaf is very beautiful here too, dark twisty leaves blended with shiny golden fuzzbuds…mmm. So rich and creamy. The vanilla evokes a marshmallowy sweetness. Super dreamy tea! I love it!!!
Wow this is really good! Thank you cookies for the sample!!!
There is a sweet/savory thing going on here that brings to mind salted caramels. Not quite like anything I’ve ever tasted before! It is rich and malty like a good Yunnan black should be. Very nice, I would definitely drink more of this, and the fact that it is organic is icing on the delicious cake :)
Thanks for the sample cookies!
I drank this one iced with my lunch today. The blueberry flavor is nice and pretty natural, and the green tea is mild and a little vegetal. I think this would be better with a little tartness to offset the sweetness. Just my opinion though! Not bad, not spectacular either :)
