1932 Tasting Notes
The website recommended having this iced and so I did. The result? A tea that tastes like a fruity Popsicle. The peach is strong but complimented by a bit of orange citrus flavor. It is a bit like watered down juice (a flavor one might expect from a Popsicle). It is nice though not something I need to have around in. Any sort of quantity. Still, I could see this being pleasant in the summertime so thank you Memily for sharing
I have had 100g of this sealed and tucked away since January but after Fjellrev’s review last night, I decided I wanted to have a cup and since I am not getting my cupboard under control anytime soon, I figured why not. I am glad I did too because I really love this tea and I missed it a lot. Sometimes it’s just nice to revisit an old friend, especially one as sweet and marshmallowy as this tasty tea.
Well this was disappointing. I have been impressed with Camellia Sinensis so far but this is a huge miss for me, at least as a hot brew. It tastes incredibly artificial and almost has a clayesque flavor that is really putting me off. Every now and then I get a hint of fruit but nothing distinctive and it really isn’t strong enough to redeem the cup. The last of this sample is getting cold brewed or iced but I doubt this is one I will be sad to see go. Still, thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try this because it is one I certainly might have picked up in an order. Now I know better.
The first time I saw this tea was in a TTB and though I usually avoid pu’erh I meant to try this as per Cavocorax’s suggestion. However, I ended up forgetting and passed it along. Luckily, my tea twin Roswell Strange has me covered as she sent along a teaspoon for me to taste. Thank you!
Sipping on this cup, I am grateful that the pu’erh flavor is essentially non-existent. Nonetheless, this is still not a tea for me. It is mostly a hot cup of cinnamon water with some ginger and herb flavors to round it out. All not flavors in a tea I care enough to reach for so although I am happy for the chance to try something new, I am also glad it was just the one serving.
