drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
520 tasting notes

After trying Golden Honey Dew I had high no expectations for this one. It’s good but not quite as good as I was hoping. Also seems to be better cold. There are definitely melon flavors; honey dew, cantaloupe, …. ok I’m sorry. I know I spelled that wrong but it just corrected itself. That is amazing. Anyway…. The first steep was pretty bad. But also kinda hot. I don’t tend to like teas hot anyway so maybe it just really didn’t appeal to me because of that? The colder it is the better it seems to be. Maybe I should freeze it? Just kidding.

As far as oolong goes I can’t taste much over the melon flavor.

Flavors: Cantaloupe, Honeydew

Preparation
3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp

drank Anastasia by Kusmi Tea

Interesting name. I would have thought a tea named Anastasia would pretty much be lemon though. I’m not really a fan of citrus teas. If I liked citrus I’d probably like this. Like the cloth tea bag. That’s different. Tried to like this one bit really don’t. Not enough bergamot for an earl grey. Can’t even really taste it.

As soon as I ripped open the bag a sweet fruity fragrance hit me in the face. Slightly floral but mainly fruity. Kinda fake fruity fruity though which I dock points for.

drank Nine Lotus by Mandala Tea

Very smooth. Grassy notes. Slightly nutty. Slightly sweet. The wet leaf smells so good. Slight marine/seaweed in the smell but not in the taste.

I need to do a quick confession. Think I ruined the pumpkin pie. We’ll see in 30 minutes. I’m sitting here drinking this tea thinking it’s not quite what I thought it was going to be. Nutty and grassy start with a surprisingly sweet finish. Leaves nothing in the aftertaste. Still I don’t mind it. Just not going to the top of my list.

In my pursuit to try as many different teas as possible I somehow keep missing yellow types. But thanks to Garret and Manalas awesome sale I’m finally able to try some.

I’m amazed at how incredibly light this tea is. Honestly abit too light for my tastebuds. The dry smell is…. Indescribable. I have no idea of ehat to compare it to. Dry grass mixed with hay?

Infusion 30 seconds. too light for taste
1 min.-3 min. A bit of nuttiness. Truly this is a unique tea. They will need to come up with more descriptive words.

Preparation
1 tsp

Thank you for the sample Lupicia. While I’m not a huge black tea drinker there are a few out there that I quite enjoy. Thos one requires a bit more steep time then listed. Around 4 mins in all to trully bring out the flavors. Earthy. Woodsy.

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.
