767 Tasting Notes
I used 1 tsp of leaf for this cup.
This tea took me by suprise, I wasn’t expecting it to taste this good. It is slightly sweet with light fruity notes. I am also getting a little bit of a malty note to this. In the aftertaste, I am getting subtle floral notes.
I didn’t get a chance to re-steep but I suspect it would still be wonderful.
Colour me shocked, I will now have to try their other offerings of Keemuns.
This is a very refreshing tea. Almost like lemonade but not too sweet. It’s slightly tart from the hibiscus but not overly so. Each cup tastes a little different depending on what fruit pieces end up in the scoop but that’s ok.
I would like to re-stock this but I think my local tea shop has stopped selling this tea :(
That’s the worst when you find a tea you like and then can’t restock it! Oh well, I enjoyed it while I had it
I needed a bit of an energy boost this morning and this certainly did the trick. The apricot is subtle and slightly sweet, with that earthy grassy Guayusa base.
I have to admit, Guayusa isn’t my favourite base, but this is a decent tea.
Edit: chilled, this tea still has those light apricot notes, but seems sweeter somehow. I think I will drink this tea chilled from now on.
Thank you Angel and Teavivre for this sample!
The strawberry aroma is very strong when this packet is opened.
I used 2 tsp of tea.
I found this tea very subtle. The buttery oolong is the prominent note with a subtle note of strawberry sweetness. I found that this oolong wasn’t vegetal and more on the sweet side which really suits my taste.
Resteep 3 minutes was much the same with a little less strawberry flavour.
I have the rest chilling in the fridge and will edit tomorrow!
UPDATE: cold, this tea is fairly refreshing and it seems like the strawberry notes are a little more prominent. However, I prefer oolongs hot, so I will probably stick with that
I bought this quite awhile ago in a sample pack and I am just getting around to it now because I have SO MUCH tea!
I thought this was really good. I used 2 tsp of tea.
Taste: Nice and creamy, and a bit vegetal with that buttery smoothness of oolong.
Resteep 3 minutes: losing a bit of that creaminess but still a good cuppa
Cold: a different kind of creamy, but refreshing all the same
Thank you Angel at Teavivre for the samples!
I was excited to try this one because I love jasmine pearls.
I steeped 1 tsp of this tea. The peach aroma comes through right away when steeping this tea. I didn’t get much of the jasmine taste and it doesn’t seem quite as sweet as the other jasmine pearls. The peach does taste fresh though.
Resteeped for 2 minutes.
I think I would maybe start off with steeping this for 2 minutes right off the bat to bring out more of the jasmine flavour.
I put half of each steep into the fridge to chill. Cold, this tea is very refreshing. The peach tastes pretty natural. I am still not getting as much jasmine as I was expecting to get, just a little hint.
I think I actually prefer this cold.
I finally tried these little gems from the sample pack from my last order! I used 1 tsp of pearls for my perfect mug. These are amazing. So sweet and smooth with almost a creamy quality like some others have mentioned. The jasmine isn’t too strong. The green tea is nice and smooth and not too vegetal. This is very refreshing and delicious. I will have to compare them next time to the premium pearls which I also love and see which one will be my cupboard staple. Have many other people compared these two teas?
Resteeped 2 minutes
I also combined half of each steep to drink cold. This tea is just as amazing cold. So refreshing
