818 Tasting Notes
This is just a mini sipdown. I have finished my first bag of this beautiful tea that made me fall in love…..ah….
Good thing that I still have a large bag because I never want to run out of this tea.
Especially with a tiny bit of crystal sugar, it is amazing.
This is amazing iced as well. I made a very large mug to finish off the bag and the rest is chilling in the fridge.
This white never fails to be creamy and dreamy. One of my favs for sure. I think I finally have to up this to the 100 rating status because it never lets me down and is always delicious. A little bit of rock sugar really elevates this tea to the next level. LOVE!
Flavors: Cream, Melon
It is fricking cold today, so I needed something tropical to take my mind off the cold. This did the trick! I am mostly getting pineapple today.
I think I finally found the sweet spot for steeping parameters of this tea because the base is very finicky and can get astringent very quickly. I used 1.5 tsp of leaf.
This honeybush is so delicious, I really should have got 2 bags. Of course, there could be more chocolate, but I always say that! I really enjoy the sweet woodsy flavour of the honeybush, and I find that Frank does a really good job with all the honeybushes.
I love this as a latte for dessert!
Backlog from yesterday. I made this western style with about 1.5 tablespoon of leaf. I boiled the water and then let it cool a bit. Even though this is from august 2012, it still tastes fresh. It is so floral and smooth.
I still haven’t tried the autumn variety to compare, but I really enjoy the freshness of the spring oolong.
