560 Tasting Notes
Did you know the difference between vanilla and French vanilla is eggs? Had to look it up. They say french vanilla is a bit more camarel, floral, and custard like. I can see that now. This matcha brings out that flavor pretty well. Custard, definitely.
Cream. Vanilla of course.
Yea. I quite enjoy this one.
Used almond milk and mixed matcha with water.
I need some whip cream. Currently drinking this cold because it’s warm out. Just threw 6 oz in the blender followed by 1tsp of matcha. Great chocolate smell emits itself from the package. The taste is also much better then I was expecting. Oh man…. I just had a great thought! Mix this with the orange matcha. Oh that is so happening!
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
