520 Tasting Notes

The only time I see this tea is when we layover in MOT. The water is too hot. Losing an hour of sleep sucks. So does this tea. It becomes bitter way too quickly and even before that there really isn’t much to it.

Sounds good. Smells like a lite version of Marketspice. The taste, however, is not what it smells like. Slight orange and cinnamon flavors but overwhelmingly it’s mainly orange pekoe.

I’m sorry but that’s a terrible name for a good tea. Mist, yes. Graveyard, no. Moroccan Mist might be better since mint tea is big over there. There is a bit of biter grass and a slight sweetness from the marshmallow root but other then that it’s completely spearmint.

I love the name, but that could be my semi-goth teen remnants speaking!

A sweet smell, sweet flavor. Though somewhat familiar I can’t quite place where I remember this sweet smell. Oh wait. Jasmine! That’s what that is. Maybe it was tainted or is that how it’s supposed to be? Either way I like it. Slightly floral with a bit of grass and hay. Very slight earthy notes too.

When things say island it elicits the thoughts of tropical fruits, beaches, the ocean etc. Nothing about this tea shouts island to me besides the fact that it was made on an island. I honestly find it a bit bland. Greenish should at least have some grassy flavors but this… maybe some hay?

Cinnamon! I love this tea for all the random flavors I get from it. This time on the first sip and a few after I’ve been tasting cinnamon. Not incredibly strong flavor of it. But enough to make you go …yum

The grassy floral notes in the scent of this tea were amazing in the store so I had to buy it. I’ll have to revisit this one again as I feel that the steep I did following the instructions wasn’t quite as good as I was hoping.

I’m not really sure of whether this is a tea of the Perennial Tea room or one of their teas that they buy in bulk from other companies. Either way it’s an interesting tea. Might be good with some wine added. It says 3 minutes for steeping but I had forgotten I was steeping it (my daughter was not wanting to eat breakfast) so I ended up steeping it for about 10 minutes. Surprisingly, it has no bitterness. In fact I think it’s quite good. The spices definitely have a bit more kick then they probably would of at 3 minutes. Actually, the more I drink it the more it reminds me of a chai.

Preparation
8 min or more

On national tea day I happened upon the Perennial tea room in Seattle. If you live in Seattle or will be visiting I highly recommend this store. They are incredibly nice and very knowledgeable. I had smelled a sample of this tea and the lady behind the desk said “If you like how it smells just wait till you smell this from the jar.” She was right. Its amazing. Very smooth and the coconut extract has just the right amount so that it’s not too over powering.

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 flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
