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
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.
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.
