7 Tasting Notes
Having more of this, this morning…and throughout the day…lol (I don’t think there’s a minute in the day I don’t have tea in my hand while at work). Takes forever for the water to cool down to be drinkable, but its worth the wait haha. I also tried re-steeping the bag some yesterday and was able to get 3 uses out of it before I decided to trash it. Pretty good stuff!
I’m still very new to teas, but after having a few of these leaf bags I have to say that the previous “tea dust” bags just don’t cut it anymore. I can safely say that I’m done with tea bag tea’s, and moving to leaf teas full time. I’m also upping the rating I gave this tea the last time. I can actually taste and smell the difference in this tea vs a bag tea. So good!
Smelling the leaf bag is almost overwhelming, the mint over powers every other scent. Strong veggie/mint flavor, not something I enjoy honestly. This might taste pretty good to some other people, but for myself I doubt I’ll even use another bag. I may try resteeping the bag to see if it dulls down the flavor, but for the most part I’ll either trash or give away the rest of this tea. Now I remember why I don’t like green tea’s.
I’m still new to teas but I picked this up at lunch in Starbucks to give it a try. Has a veggie taste to it , but very smooth flavor. The bag after steeping has a great smell to it, but I don’t get that same smell from the tea itself. Not a bad tea, I’ll try resteeping since it’s whole leaf bags that came in the tin.
This stuff is kind of starting to grow on me. If I let it steep a bit longer you can taste a hint of something sweet but not enough that it lingers for long. Not as bad as it seems when I first got it.
On an off-note, my two boys are big enough to sit up in their Bumbo’s now which makes me excited. If you don’t know what a Bumbo is, then you need to look it up. Probably the single most awesome thing you can have as a parent. It’s just a chair, but you can move it anywhere for them to sit in or feed them in.
I’m still new to tea’s and find it hard to get leaf tea around here without ordering online, which I plan to do soon but for now I got this tea at the local Asian Grocer and its not too bad. I use 1 bag per small teacup and it doesn’t have a lot of flavor but you can tell its more than just hot water. It works for now.
