1092 Tasting Notes
I really enjoy the pairing of chocolate and pu’erh. and who I am kidding, I love chocolate. This tea is more of a dark chocolate though, I didn’t find it sweet. There wasn’t any meringue pieces in my scoop though so that might have something to do with it. I don’t know if I would label this as “truffle” though.
I really enjoyed this one. I didn’t find the flavouring to be too strong, which is nice sometimes.
I think I would add this tea to an order if I made one to Tea Desire. I have only tried one other tea from there I think.
The bag was not marked with the year, so I just guessed that it was this entry considering that this is the one that is on the website (I think). So I hope this is in the right place.
This smells really earthy, and I was a little worried that it was going to taste “too” earthy for me. This was not the case, the earthy mushroom notes were there, but not overwhelming. There was also sweet, creamy notes. I found there to be a slight wood aftertaste. Delicious. It resteeps very well. The second steep was 6min, and then I forget after that.
On to the wish list it goes.
This is a bit of a “kick in the pants” tea. It is bold and a bit astringent. I am not sure exactly what base this tea has, but it is just a smidgen fruity. I kind of drank this in a hurry and should have paid closer attention to tasting notes.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get much cream.
Maybe next time, lower temp and less brew time?
I have had this a couple of times this week and I think the mocha has gotten a little less robust with time, leaving the butterscotch and hazelnut to become the most prominent notes. This makes me happy because I am not a big coffee fan. The White Rhino base is of course amazing, light and creamy.
This tea is even more delicious and decadent with some brown crystal sugar. I might as well REALLY enjoy the last few cups of this that I have left.
I am glad to have this back in my cupboard. It is so unique and different!
I am still unsure how to describe the taste though. I have never had sea buckthorn. It is bitter and sweet at the same time if that makes sense. It reminds me a little bit of chokecherry or Saskatoon berries maybe. It has a nice creamy aftertaste.
I love this tea with a smidgen of brown crystal sugar. It really brings out the plum flavour. The cheesecake and brandy have lost most of their spunk, but are still there in the background. I am actually going to increase this rating a little (from 92) because this is probably my all time favourite plum tea.
This is one of the free samples that I chose with my Black Friday order so that you Teavivre! I really enjoy Keemun teas, and this one is no exception. The snails are so pretty, dark and all curled up. I like watching them unfurl in my Steeper. The brewed tea is fairly dark.
The aroma is of baked sweet potatoes and it also translates into the taste as well. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slightly sweet aftertaste.
This tea is fairly expensive and there are other Teavivre Keemuns that I enjoy more than this offering, so it won’t become part of my permanent cupboard but I am happy to have tried it and certainly would not refuse a cuppa.
