290 Tasting Notes
I got this as a sample with my order. I’ve wanted to try this, but didn’t want to buy it because I cannot get behind mate.
This smells so delicious, fresh & juicy, both dry & as its steeping.
This is the best mate I’ve had. You get the fruity, juicy melon flavour at the front of the sip & a slight earthy, dryness from the mate.
Really good & I definitely want more.
Ever have a tea that makes you gag? yea well I’ve found that tea.
this may be the worst tea I’ve ever had, EVER!!!
when I smelt the dry leaves I didn’t think I would like it, but that was the papaya smell. as it steeped it smelt much better. at the very beginning of the sip I get some creaminess from the chocolate, then I get the fruit, & that fishy earthy taste Pu’erh is known for. & then I gag, even before the mouth full is down my throat.
I’m going to attempt it with less leaves at another time, similarly I had to do that with the chocolate orange one, but that was more tolerable than this.
received this along with 2 other pi’erhs from Davids.
the dry leaves are super strawberry-ie, there really isn’t much Pu’erh in the blend, which I should have noticed from the picture, so I don’t know how well it’ll work for my mission.
taste wise this is very berry, but generic berry, not strawberry like it smells.
it’s sweet & tart, very good.
overall as a berry tea it’s quite good, as a Pu’erh it doesn’t give me that strong puerh tastes that others do.
I really do like this.
ETA: I’m really started to kind of dislike this tea :/ rating lowered
How does a tea that smells so amazing taste to blah & belch.
This is so orange, creamy & sweet smelling, but it doesn’t follow through.
It’s quite void of yummy flavours & possesses a stale, almost musty flavour.
Just not working for me
Decided to try this little gem this morning. New tea #4 from my sample packs.
This was the one I was looking forward to the most!
I understeeped this because I was in a major rush this morning. (took too long making myself cute for a client that is coming in ahaha…. I am LAME!)
So it lacked a bit in flavour. It is malty & chocolatey (but not as malty as Chocolate Chili Truffle- I’m sure that’s the under steeping.).
Definetly have to give this another go with a proper steep time, because I am sure it will be scrumptious.
I love Whoppers (the chocolate) & haven’t had any in a really long time so this was why I wanted this tea.
This tea is sitting on the lower shelf on the desk at work, I keep sniffing around because I smell chocolate cake, can’t figure out from where. I tell my co-worker I smell chocolate cake, DUH! clued in & smelt my tea…. yup pure freshly baking chocolate cake. And this tea isn’t even hot anymore.
Om nom nom. This is so delicious. Must buy more. This may be my favourite Rooibos ever!
Sweet & honeyie & spicy… delicious!
I really want to make more, but I am so tired.
This is my second new tea, I love mint & chocolate, however it’s almost always in a caffeinated tea. So I was really glad to see this one.
However this was kind of just a blah tea. The rooibos takes the lead & the mint & chocolate take a major backseat & hardly come through.
Soooo many new teas to choose from in my order that arrived this morning.
I’m not sure why I chose to try this one first, when what I have really been waiting for is Malt Shop.
This is really freakin good. Creamy & stawberry-ie, it’s better when it’s still quite hot, I find the flavours come out more. I’m not getting much chocolate, most of it is at the end of the sip.
This is definetly ice cream in a cup, melted & warmed deliciousness. YUM!
I really forgot how much a half ounce of tea is, I’m gonna be at this forever! 19 new teas to try.
You know how just when you think a tea can’t get any better? Then it does?
Yea well this is one of those. I have a feeling I will be through my 2oz in no time & will need more, MORE, MORE, MORE!!
gah it’s so good. Quite different this time, more of a light floral note, still earthy, light & so freakin good!
Thanks Brenden (I have to say I am impressed that your name is spelt this way, my brother’s is the same & you rarely see it spelt like this), for this amazing blend!!
I’m really surprised this hasn’t been reviewed yet.
I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this tea yet. I need some time to sit with another mug of it.
It definetly remind me of camping (ok so 90% of Whispering Pines teas remind me of camping & I can’t tell you how much I LOVE that!), both in smell & taste. It’s earthy, almost hay like & a bit berry-ie.
The colour it steeps up is so strange. I had it in a white mug & the tea touching the edges of the mug was a yellow-ish/green & the centre was an almost grey/green colour.
I feel like I should be drinking this in a sauna or by a fire.
