Late night herbal tea, so TANGY AND SWEET!
My final sample from Zen Tea! GOLLY they weren’t kidding about the cream, you can even smell that when you open the bag AND I LOVE IT. MAN the only way I can really think to describe this tea is COZY! Probably one of my favorite earl greys yet, honestly. I usually add quite a bit of milk and sugar to my earl greys anyway, but this one barely needed anything. LOVE THE SMOOTH VANILLA and you definitely get that defining bergamot finish and YUM.
HAVE I MENTIONED how much I love this stuff? Let me tell you again: MOLTO DELIZIOSO. I may just have to order this at some point.
Another of my free sample teas from Zen Tea! WOW as soon as I started brewing this the smell of the rice grew to be REALLY strong! The puffed rice looks like popcorn it’s pretty great. My only experience with genmaicha is bagged, which I like quite a lot, so NATURALLY I really love this too! The nutty flavor is much stronger here than what I’m used to; all in all the tea is just much more flavorful and aromatic than what I’ve experienced and IT’S PRETTY DARN GREAT. Love this tea! Could go for another cup now, heh heh.
I got a sample of this tea and 3 others from Zen Tea! Decided to try this one tonight! AT FIRST I WAS A LITTLE BIT WORRIED because it smelled almost like… chocolate? And I’m a WEIRDO that dislikes chocolate a lot I KNOW, I KNOW, IT’S A CRIME. However it ended up tasting strongly of hazelnut for sure! It was pretty good actually, definitely creamy, but I’m still a bit ambivalent about it I guess. I think I’ll try adding some things to it next time.
FINALLY GIVING THIS A SHOT all by itself without mixing it with other things oh WOW THAT SMELLS REALLY GOOD— BRB IT NEEDS MILK.
Okay the milk helps a lot cuz without it kinda tasted like some really bitter wannabe caramel coffee or something I MIGHT HAVE BREWED IT WRONG TOO I’ll have to give it another go later but WITH MILK it ain’t too bad.
HATERS GONNA HATE I still love this tea! Definitely more earthy/veggie than the gyokuro, but it still has this super smooth and almost sweet after taste that’s really delish. LIGHT AND REFRESHING!
What if I just tealogged this all morning…
I just made a perfect cup of this this morning at work I really just cant get over the buttery sweet grassy aroma and it tastes as good as it smells and GOSH IT IS SO FREAKING GOOD!! AND IT RE-STEEPS A 2nd CUP TOO. WHAT A FAB TEA. I burned my hand getting water for this cup but it was worth it.
I just love how this tea can be grassy and sweet at the same time, YUM!!
SO NUTTY! SO ADDICTING! SO DERICIOUS!!!
Had this this morning with a bit of milk! The bergamot is strong but not overpowering and it wasn’t bitter in the least it was actually quite delish. HIT THE SPOT, in any case.
I WAS EATING WATERMELON. AND I WAS LIKE. “I need a fruity tea to compliment this. Kool-aid tea will do just fine.” AND IT DID.
Great uncle had this in his cabinet, I don’t usually reach for decaffeinated teas but I was in the mood for that clove-y and cinnamon-y spice so I had it anyway. Added some milk this time which I usually don’t do; it was purdy good! Couldn’t taste the difference.
MAN MY GRANDPARENTS MAKE TOO MUCH FOOD FOR MY TINY TUMMY TO HOLD and that makes it hurt and then I end up drinking this again. THIS TEA IS SO REFRESHING I really do like it it’s kinda growing on me more and more.
Had this tea the last two mornings at the hotel and for a basic restaurant tea it wasn’t too bad. I brewed it a bit too long the second day so it was a bit bitter, but all in all it’s pretty decent.
Got myself a bit of a tummy ache and a major headache tonight, so this was the tea of choice! I’m already feeling a little better. Strong snappy ginger seems to do a lot of good for me, and I like that little added lemon flavor!
Fun fact: I boiled my water in a coffee pot, since I’m at a hotel, and the first time the water smelled pretty strong of coffee SOOO I did it again and the 2nd time it wasn’t too bad. I CAN’T TASTE IT, in any case.
MY LATE NIGHT TEA CHOICE FOR TONIGHT. It’s pretty cold in here and I’ve got this steeping really strong this time so its soooper flavorful.
Another tea I had while waiting for my next flight at the airport after my original one had been canceled; I wanted something sweet so I ended up adding quite a lot of cream and sugar to this, but it still had a really good taste in my opinion! It was quite rich, almost a little citrus-y even…? A good ear grey I say (wow that rhymed). The packaging was really nice too HAHA it had like the… preparation info on the pouch it came in AND THE POUCH WAS LIKE… REALLY SOFT TOO IDK I liked it… a lot. :’|
Would like to try more of PeLi’s teas sometime!
Had this at the airport today. Not awful not impressive but IT’LL DO.
At work this morning my coworker gave me a super sweet brownie! I got myself a cup of this to compliment it, nomnomnom. The sweet cinnamon-y spices are so delishhh.
Another tea that’s been great to do some blending experiments with! This is a solid green tea with a nice nutty overtone.
