361 Tasting Notes
Back logging here. I got a can of this during the summer and it was the first can of tea that I cashed from Dr. Tea. This is a good everyday tea. The flavor is a little astringent but I still loved it. I couldn’t get a lot of Pu-Erh flavor out of this but I could taste the ancient tea tree. I would love to try them individually. I like it quite a bit and will likely order more.
I just brewed this before I hit the airwaves. It hit my palette and I noticed familiar flavors to me….definitely the lemongrass, and cinnamon….but what I really noticed is that it reminded me of Tazo(Starbucks) Passion tea. In addition the Pu-Erh. Quite enjoyable this time around especially after chinese for lunch. Got 2 good steepings out of it.
I decided to try this while my future wife and I were out. Overall I didn’t think it was too bad. As I sipped it more on the way home I realized how much it tasted like the Yunnan black tea that I got at the local Asian supermarket…..except there for .75 cents an ounce. It’s good but I’d rather save the four dollars an ounce for something else.
more back logging I tried this one because I liked the Strawberry blend that Teavana has. I gotta say that this one tastes funny to me. I can tell they use the chai blend that they put in the Samarui Chai and smell delightful but in a cup it’s just ok I was hoping for more Pu-Erh taste to come out….still pretty good.
As a coffee drinker I love this tea. The hints of cocoa and vanilla are amazing. I love that Teavana added the Assam to this blend. Being a former cigar afficianodo this tea reminds me a little of a black and mild in a good way. This has been my morning starter at least for the past 2 week.
