562 Tasting Notes
As soon as I smelled this tea I knew I had to try it. It’s that mineral, very slightly grassy and floral notes that really hit the nose and make you go… yup have to try that. It has such a pure and airy flavor. Mineral notes are what I pick up on first; especially the more you steep it. Definitely buttery with an aftertaste for fresh cut flowers.
The essence of this tea was so unique that I had to try it. I can imagine some monks up in the Himalayas concocting this tea. It’s slightly flowery. A hint of sweetness. Woodsy, black base is pretty much covered up by all the flavors mixing in the cup. Gorgeous amber color. Whoa weird! Banana!!! It went from sweet and flowery to banana and slightly bitter. This is a weird tea! Holy smokes.
What a fragrance! The dry smell is so sweet. Almost like root beer. You really cannot let this one steep too long or it becomes bitter fast. Oddly enough the first flavor to hit your mouth is not vanilla. It hits more in the aftertaste. Also I found it better if brewed at a slightly cooler temp. Not the best vanilla tea I’ve had but not terrible. Not something I would drink again.
From the Here’s hoping TTB
When lemonades and / or teas can get the lychee flavor right its like drinking a little bit of paradise. This company did a good job. I really wish I was sipping this on a beach right now. The dry smell is great; as is the wet smell. I love the fusion of the black tea flavors mixing in with the lychee. nom.
This company always comes up with the most interesting sounding tea. Not quite sure of this one. The first flavor that hits you is definitely mate and it stays with you till the after taste but the pecan and the caramel come out in hints just enough to make its name. I’m not a huge fan of mate but this isn’t too bad.
