818 Tasting Notes
I finally ordered more of this tea so now I can stop hoarding it. I made a Verdant order using my certificate from the Black Friday order. So, ya I have made too many orders lately.
This tea though, I want to always keep this cocoa gem in my cupboard. To my surprise, I actually have enough leaf for one more cup!
I found myself craving this tea for some reason this morning. And then I went on steepster and it was one of the first notes I saw. I forget who drank it though. Mm, malty caramel this morning, a real treat. Now off to resteep.
I don’t mind the new steepster but there are a couple of things that kinda suck:
-slider bar sucks on iPad/iPhone
-as Roswell Strange mentioned, I don’t like how the ingredients are alphabetically listed rather than by most prevalent
This is a sample sipdown. I didn’t have this is my cupboard though so I can’t take it out.
I wanted a TGY this morning but also wanted a touch of sweetness, so I ruffled around in my sample bags from Teavivre. This one fits that bill! The honey just adds that touch I sweetness that I was looking for. I don’t think that I would drink this everyday, but it’s nice for a sweet treat.
I enjoyed this tea yesterday with a dark chocolate banana muffin. Let me tell you, it was amazing that way. The malty notes are greatly pronounced and they complemented each other perfectly.
Now I need to make more muffins…haha.
But seriously, I do thoroughly enjoy this tea.
This is a sipdown of my sample.
I really enjoyed this lovely oolong. It is a little bit vegetal and I think I prefer more roasted oolongs now. However, I would never turn down a cup of this and rather enjoyed the freshness of the leaves. I might even order more samples some time so I can enjoy it again.
