2141 Tasting Notes
Wow all my teas are going nuts and I don’t know if it is the water or my tastebuds. Today, this tea doesn’t have the spice I usually love but is rather sweet and vanilla-y. There is also a fair taste of orange peel that I am not a huge fan of. Nonetheless, this is still a tasty cup, just not the cup I know and love.
Roswell Strange sent this to me and I think my taste buds are off because to me this is tasting almost exactly like Cantaloupe & Cream. They are both melon white teas but usually Stacy’s flavors are so spot on that I feel like I must be crazy. Nonetheless, it tastes great and I still have one serving left to try. Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me.
I enjoyed this tea earlier so much that I decided to make the rest of it. Unfortunately I may have not had enough dry leaf for a cup so the taste is very watered down. This is not how this tea should be remembered as it is so much better than this. Thank you JustJames for the sample, this tea will be greatly missed.
Well that is the last of this sample. I have realized this is best when hot because as it cools the taste becomes a little artificial and chemical tasting. However, when hot it tastes like a sweet juicy pear. As tasty as it is hot, I usually won’t reach for teas that are that finicky and for that reason I won’t be ordering this tea. I am glad I got to try it though and I definitely enjoyed the sample while it lasted. Thanks Roswell Strange!!
I am finishing the last of this sample Cavocorax sent me while I watch Blackfish for the second time. Of course my mom waits until after I finish to tell me she wants to watch it. At least it was good so here I am sipping away and watching the documentary. This tea is tasty, the main flavor is the bergamot but I get a lot of the base as well. The caramel and vanilla mix together to add a sweetness to the cup. I have been enjoying this tea while it lasted but now as I finish it up, I don’t think I will miss it too much while it is gone. Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this and other Harney teas with me. Thanks to your samples, I learned the ones I thought I would love (Paris and Florence), I did not like as much especially when compared to some of the others you sent that I didn’t think I would like as much (SoHo and Boston Blend) but ended up really enjoying. That’s one of the great things about swaps so thank you once again, your swap is greatly appreciated :)
Mmmmm….Thé de Lune! This tea is one of the few florals that I actually really enjoy. I am sipping on it now and watching Blackfish, a documentary about the killer whales at Sea World. The two are a very strange combination as the tea is so delicate and floral and reminiscent of sunny Parisian afternoons while the documentary is talking about the deaths of trainers and the dangers of keeping the whales in captivity. Nonetheless, both are very interesting. Thank you JustJames once again for sharing this tea!
I don’t know what I did with this cup but it is tasting very weak and watered down today. I am getting vanilla water which is especially upsetting as this is the last of my sample. Oh well, c’est la vie. Anyways, thank you Veronica for sharing this tea with me. I am very glad I got to try it out.
