3021 Tasting Notes
I was talking to a friend about this matcha which got me craving a cup. The sample I originally had was delicate and I quite liked it but my purchase was for the distinctive level and I am getting quite a grassy taste. I will have to try underleafing (underpowdering?) and see how that goes because right now it is like indulging in creamy grass.
Made a giant mason jar cold brewed. I was surprised to see it looked almost fizzy by the time it was done. Now I am sipping on it and getting a lot more floral notes than in the hot cup. It is also lacking a bit of tart to make the pear “prickly”. In future, I think I will stick to having this hot but it is not a bad cup either way.
This is one of the teas I grabbed out of the Great Canadian TTB and I am so glad I did because it is a tasty caffeine-free option. The rooibos is virtually non-detectable leaving room for the caramel to shine through. However, this stops itself from becoming too sweet and having a monotonous flavor by complimenting the caramel with a hint of coffee deliciousness. Thank you Jeweled Thumb for including it as it is something I have wanted to try for a while now.
Got this as a sample in my most recent Butiki order and it is just as good as I remember…maybe even better? It really is the best coconut I have ever had but combined with the banana and toffee goodness, it is pure perfection! JustJames, you and Stacey make a magical pair! This will definitely be stocked once I can get my hands on more :)
Thank you Dexter3657 for sharing this tasty tea. It has an almost cherry-like quality while still staying true to its name. Very good for anyone who is a lover of marzipan. Personally, I enjoy it from time to time but am not so in love with the flavor that I need this stocked. Although, I wouldn’t turn down a cup if it were offered.
Sipping on this now, I feel like I expected much more than I am getting. All the reviews seem so overwhelmingly positive that I thought this would be a mindblowing taste experience. Tbh, it is not. Don’t get me wrong, the tea is good but it is not something I NEED to have stocked. It mostly tastes of a black tea with a hint of honey sweetness and a few chocolatey notes here and there. Good, but not as special as I had hoped. Oh well.
keychange, I can’t thank you enough for the generous sample you gave me of this tea! It is so delicious that I wish I could drink it everyday, though I am trying to make it last. Luckily, I have still been able to have it pretty frequenly because you shared so much. Plus, I don’t need to hoard anymore because the awesome NayLynn was kind enough to order me 4 oz and send it along so I can avoid Harney’s insane shipping prices. It is people like the two of you that makes me love steepster sooo much!! This is truly the greatest community I could ever hope to be apart of :)
Thank you Dexter3657 for sending me a sample of this in a generous surprise package! This is my strawberry milkshake tea and I have missed it but am refusing to order from HI until I am back in Toronto so this was a very welcome addition.
Today, the base is a bit more prominent than in past cups and there is less creaminess but it still has a nice strawberry flavor so I am happy. Once again, thank you so much for sharing and brightening my day with your unexpected surprise. With that in mind…
I AM MOVING IN LESS THAN A MONTH! The reason I mention this is because I know how generous everyone is on steepster. I never expect them but you guys have surprised me with packages time and time again. However, since MY ADDRESS WILL BE CHANGING, I would hate for someone to generously send tea that would just get lost in the world :(. Thus it is probably best that you DON’T SEND ME TEA to my Montreal address (except for the swaps I already arranged) as I don’t think I will receive it.
