326 Tasting Notes

Thank you for the mystery tea Verdant. I didn’t look on here to see what it was before I opened it and when I did I figured it was a straight black tea. Oolongs and greens teas are the only ones I seem to like plain so I’m glad this is an oolong. It’s smooth and has a nice almost ginseng after taste to it. Somewhat vegetal but honestly I don’t know the correct words to describe oolongs. They truly have their own flavor.

Preparation
1 tsp

drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia
326 tasting notes

This tea is awesome. I love pineapple and coconut mixed together. The aroma when you open the bag is just heavenly. Pineapple tidbits waft to your nose accompanied with a gentle oolong. And the taste… yea. Perfect amount of pineapple and coconut so as not to over power the oolong. I’m loving the oolong base they used. Grassy with a vegetal hint.

Flavors: Coconut, Pineapple

Preparation
1 min, 15 sec 1 tsp

Mmm, this sounds lovely! I do NOT need more tea, but I’m seriously considering a Lupicia order one day soon.

beelicious

Water and almond milk
I’m using a scissors from now on… i ripped it open and it dusted the counter top. Not much spilled but still.
We’re enjoying this one. Think the milk and water milk is a bit off but luckily this matcha is good enough that you barely notice. The french vanilla makes me think of silk fabric. Everything about this matcha is so smooth.

Deep, rich, and velvety looking color. Never have I seen water such a color. It almost looks like blood and I’m kinda creeped out. My Delta biscoff cookie taste great dunked in it. Odd aroma and ingredients. Carrots?

Ok trying without the biscoff now. Sorry not liking this one. Think I got my hopes up too much. It’s too tart. And the hibiscus is overwhelming. Blah… Also I think the use of milk powder is unnecessary. Can’t even tell it’s there. Maybe I should have added something….

Amazing. Oh is that tasty. It doesn’t need it but next time I’m going to try it with my amaretto honey. Used almond milk. 8oz milk and 1/2 tsbp matcha. This is my favorite thus far.

I love this one. It’s probably my favorite RLT matcha that I’ve had so far.

drank Kirara Rice Tea by Lupicia
326 tasting notes

Generally genmaicha is my favorite tea. I’m wondering if I over steeped this cup though. The marine like flavor is over bering. Every time I take a sip I imagine myself on a dock with lots of fishing boats. Seldovia, AK. There is still that good ole grassy flavor that keeps drawing me back for more sips.

As I sip more the true flavors come out more. I’m on my second steep now and it’s much better. Grassy ricey goodness with a slight seaweed flavor.

Preparation
Iced 1 min, 15 sec

drank Lychee Barley by Lupicia
326 tasting notes

Open the package and pow, lychee punch to your face. I love lychee and trying out new tea/‘teas’ was one of my objectives with this black Friday. Also was looking to see if it resembles a Hawaiian tea I once had that I thought had barley in it. In a way it kinda does.

The more you steep the tea the lighter the lychee flavor becomes. It’s quite good cold but I think I enjoyed it a bit warmer. In a way barley tea reminds me somewhat of a pu erh. Perhaps it’s because of the earthy undertones?

This is my favorite of their barley teas so far. :)

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA
326 tasting notes

I’ve never eaten an orchid but if they were edible I’m sure this is what they would taste like. Amber in color. Light floral scent. Tastes of… so many flavors. Yogurt, cake, orchid, vanilla, and something I can’t quite make out. Oh maybe that’s the oolong. How interesting…

Preparation
2 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA

Creamy custard! I was a bit surprised as I wasn’t expecting that. Honestly I thought it would be too strong with the chamomile. Truly wish it was thicker and to actually be custard. Though honestly I’m not tasting the apples like I was hoping.

Flavors: Cream, Custard

Preparation
8 min or more 2 tsp

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it with something added. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
