6769 Tasting Notes
The flavor of this reminds me of sweeter, smoother green beans. It’s delicious! It’s creamier the more you sip it. It’s savory. It’s semi brothy. It’s sweet and mouth-watering. YUMMY!
Recently I received a sample of this Single Estate Black Tea from Whittard of Chelsea. As many of you know I start each day with at least 1 Black Tea and then move on to other tea bases throughout the day.
I haven’t had much from Yumchaa but I have been wanting to sip on more and after this one I want to sip even more! This is a nicely flavored green with rhubarb and berry notes without being tarty. It has a great sweetness but also an even-smooth to round it out! The product descriptions says to Drink When: Wearing Thick Socks – well, I’m in luck! That’s just about every day! LOL
If anyone has some Yumchaa assorted teas laying around and would be interested in swapping – let me know via PM :)
Go-to Sencha? Perhaps! Backlogging…see other notes!
Backlogging…see other notes…
oh yes! Musky! Muscatel! Interesting! Slightly nutty. Less of your stereotypical darjeeling and more creative and masculine. A nice surprise! A little peppery. Great offering!
This SMELLS wonderful! Plum and spice for sure!
It ‘brews up’ extremely dark! Purple.
This is puckery!
Mostly sour plum and very little spice.
Not sure if I can handle it.
I couldn’t resist…I snatched this one from the TT. Sorry guys! Of course I will replace it with something else :)
I smells like a mixed drink – faintly.
It has a nice medium black tea base and there is that flavor pointing to rum-like tastes, indeed! It has a sweeter end sip. The aftertaste is somewhat woodsy. It has a slipperiness to it on the tongue. This is pretty good. Different. But in a good way!
I really thought I sampled and logged this already but I’m thinking it was a straight-black base with flavoring instead of a black/herbal blend. I remember really enjoying that other one. This one is pretty good, too, but not as drawing for me…I think it was because of the minty notes being more intense in the other one. This one is not as flavored. It taste more herbally. The black tea base isn’t as pronounced. Perhaps this one is a more laid-back version. I can understand why – I know some people don’t care for mint and most people don’t like mint as much as I do so I totally understand this flavoring. It lingers nicely. Just a hint of freshness. This is pretty good!
I feel bad because I drank this yesterday and forgot to log and now I can’t view it on the site. I couldn’t find it on steepster, either, so I am creating a new one, now.
This was fruity-bitter. A fairly strong base. I don’t think I will give it a rating because I didn’t write down appropriate notes for this tasting log and I usually do. It was ok but not my favorite from them.
