457 Tasting Notes
On a trip right now so have to brew the matcha in whatever fashion I can. Most of the time it involves dumping it into a small water bottle and shaking vigorously. This I brewed with hot water and stired with a plastic stir stick. Real fancy…
Definitely getting some hints of sunshine state oranges in there. Not as much…. Uh… Orange zing? As I thought there would be though.
Bukiti TTB. A nice refreshing oolong. Smooth flavors. A bit vegetal, I’m not picking up as much asparagus as others but maybe that will come with more steeps.’s a bit floral but only for the first few seconds; then its…. sweet grass, slight cream, maybe very lightly fruity?
Second steep just as good. Kinda over steeped it but it’s still good. No bitterness. A bit more vegetal a little less fruity.
This is a great oolong. Some of them leave me not feeling so great… for whatever odd reason. But this one is smooth and doesn’t give me any weird tingle sensations in my throat. Smooth with some sweetness. A bit of creaminess. Grassy. Actually this is the first time Ive had a tea that has more of a sweet grass. The dry smell is like cherrios….?
Flavors: Sweet, warm grass
This was a perfect fit for this morning. I slept… Very poorly. If you are a fan of rose flavor and rose scent you will like this one. Not only does it smell lovely but the taste is lovely too. Makes me want to make a big cup and go sit in a rose garden. Its a good blend of teas. The rose of course over powers the bases but that’s ok.
Ooooo quite good! Very fitting with my egg on toast. Woodsy, slight twiggy, chocolate, strawberry. Goes down smoothly. Good earthy undertones that flow so well with the rest of the flavors. I gave it a 4 minute steep time but it tasted just fine at 3.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Strawberry
