476 Tasting Notes
My first impression of this tea was not very good. All I tasted was black …Ceylon? I’m not very good at identifying black bases. Kinda bitter. As I let it cool down I experienced more of the flavors but not as much as I thought I would. I’m going to try this again tomorrow with some …honey or something added and see how it changes.
I love vanilla black tea so I had to try this one. the vanilla smell on the dry leaves is quite nice but honestly I’m not enjoying the flavor as much as I thought I would. Somehow vanilla just seems to go better with black tea in my opinion anyways. It is light and I can barely taste the green tea but it’s definitely there
Another tea with interesting ingredient! Bamboo. Not something I would have thought to flavor a tea with but it works. Makes me think of the HNL airport and their outside garden for some reason. It’s truly a unique taste. Grassy sencha with that interesting flavor that bamboo gives it. I think my favorite part is the after taste it leaves in your mouth.
An interesting name for a tea. I do like unique names though because it makes you think about more then tasting notes, aroma and color. For instance with this tea I imagine a masquerade with a lady who has a butterfly mask. She’s slipped out onto the back terrace to sip on this tea.
Sencha? It looks and tastes like it. I really enjoy that the peach flavor doesn’t get covered up by the peach flavor like it does with many peach teas. Though it is still quite strong with this one. (And suddenly I’ve jumped into Star Wars) haha
When I first read their ingredient list for this tea I thought it was a joke. I still kinda do. Fog? What is that supposed to be? They have a crazy mix of stuff but it works well. It reminds me a bit of peach but the apricot bits don’t make me think peach. Also not tasting much Lychee. This is quite good warm but I am enjoying it more luke warm.
I’ve been completely forgetting to mention that these are from the Hidden TTB. Just been so happy to try so many different teas! I’m loving this one! I’ve tried a few different versions of this by other companies and this one definitely ranks near the top. It’s like sipping apple pie. I’m going to munch on a Trefoil in a moment and I’m sure that will enhance this.
Oh yea. Good pairing.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Cream
Cumin in tea is weird. This tea is… odd. Not gonna lie. I do not think of butter tart I think more of a main dish then a tart. It’s a bit spicy. Not like chai but …I don’t know know how to explain it. Nice earthy base mixes well with this tea. I won’t rate this one since it’s not bad but I just am not a fan.
