599 Tasting Notes
Sample sipdown. I am sad to see this one go. I really enjoyed it. Hopefully I can buy this again sometime! I like how you get something different part way through the cup.
I steeped for 8 minutes and the flavours popped more than usual
Mmm sweet caramel tangy cheesecake latte.
Much needed caffeine today since baby was up at 530!
I am really glad that I ordered this sample because I find myself really enjoying roasted oolongs.
I used the whole sample package for this cup.
This is delicious. I didn’t get the coffee notes, but I also only brewed for 1 minute. I found it a bit sweet and roasted notes really shine through with that buttery TGY. It tastes almost a bit creamy.
I might have to order this!
Resteep at 2 and 3 minutes. I think the second steep was my favourite because all the notes really melded together and it was really smooth and almmost velvety.
I probably could have gotten more steeps out of the leaves but I ran out of time in my day :(
I actually quite enjoyed this one. I like mulberry magic so I was hoping it would be similar. It is a bit similar but also very different due to the chamomile. I like the creaminess of it though.
I think I still prefer mulberry magic though.
It is also very delicious cold, maybe even better actually.
I think I might try a longer steep next time, I noticed some people were steeping for 7 minutes.
Darn, this was a little astringent today. I forgot to let the water cool a bit and only steep for 2.5 minutes. Still good though. Added a splash of milk and it was saved.
It is delicious cold.
I didn’t realize I already reviewed this one! Well, I am glad that I got this with my order anyway.
I used 2-3 teaspoons and I did 4 steeps @ 1,2,3,and 4 minutes
I love white tea, I find it so relaxing and mellow. I like to sit only with the tea and really focus on the taste of the tea. Delicious hay notes with slight floral notes and a fresh sweetness.
I am increasing my rating a little
Thank you to Angel at Teavivre for this sample!
I must admit, puerh is not usually my favourite tea but I was interested to try this one. I didn’t hate it or love it. Earthiness with a slight sweet note is mostly what I taste. Maybe I was just having a blah day the day I tasted it, but I didn’t find it that interesting. I still enjoyed what I had, but don’t like it enough to order it.
Resteep 1 minute
Thank you to Angel at Teavivre for sending me this sample.
I am not usually a straight green tea fan, but I never pass up the opportunity for free samples from Teavivre because I find my tastes are changing and sometimes I discover something I wouldn’t have normally tried!
I used 1 tsp of leaf. This is an excellent tea. It is smooth, not too vegetal. It has a nutty flavour and now that I read the description, it says chestnut, and ya, I get chestnut. It is buttery and not astringent in any way. It tastes so fresh.
Resteep at 2 minutes. I think I enjoy this steep even more than the first.
I am glad I got to try this and might just order it in the future……look at me…..growing up in my tastes and ordering straight teas more and more…lol.
This was very different than I was expecting. I thought it would be a little sweeter, and more like chamomile. I see in the description, that they mention persimmon and I definitely get that. I like this, but not enough to order it.
Mmm so comforting with subtle strawberry and the buttery green oolong in the forefront more and more with each steep.
Resteeped 4.5 minutes
I am glad that I ordered this in case it gets axed to make room for other blends!
