1150 Tasting Notes
Oh this is so good. I picked up on honey notes right in the first sip. The malty chocolate notes develop at the end of the sip. I noticed some nutty notes in the aftertaste and wasn’t sure exactly what kind of nutty notes I was picking up on. When I looked at the description, I saw pecan and decided yes, that is the note I am tasting.
I find myself being drawn to straight teas more and more.
After a few days of not having any loose leaf teas and only drinking Keurig chai lattes, I am happy to have loose tea again.
I have never had lychee before but this is delicious. The first couple of sips of this tea were interesting. Tasting something for the first time is always exciting. As I continued to sip, I enjoyed it more and more. There are lots of fruity notes (which I assume to be the lychee). The floral notes are in the background and are subtle, but I find that they add depth to the tea.
Resteeped for 4.5 minutes was just as delicious, and I found that the floral notes came out a little more.
Merry Christmas to my Steepster family!
I shared a Christmas morning pot of this tea with my family. I just love watching children open Christmas presents.
This tea was comforting and perked me up for a fun filled day of family time.
I thought this tea was fairly enjoyable but I don’t think that I would repurchase it.
I remembered from last time that I brewed this to use a tea bag, otherwise the infuser gets too oily and gross. This was ok tonight, sweet enough for me to enjoy.
Actually, I can’t believe that I still have this, it is getting old. It is really getting time to do some serious sipdowns. Now, if only I could stop ordering more tea for awhile so I could drink up some older teas!
Hmm….I wasn’t expecting so many black teas in this box, I thought there would be more variety. There has only been one honeybush, and all the rest have been blacks. Oh well, I am liking the surprise of scratching the bag to find out what the tea of the day is!
I didn’t expect this tea to have such large candy corn candies. I don’t mind candy corn, but I don’t think that I would go out of my way to find it or anything. This tea though, is pretty good. It is sweet and fun. Too bad I didn’t have this on Halloween. I don’t think I would order a bag though.
Oh boy, this tea puts my cupboard at over 200 teas, and I haven’t even added all the teas from my Butiki order, and none from my Verdant order! NO NEW ORDERS for a long time…….I hope.
Backlog from yesterday. This tea is delicious. I get how it has some similar notes to black tea. I really enjoy the malty, fruity, sweet notes of caramel that I get from this tea. I was a little scared to use boiling water, but it definitely does the trick.
The resteep was also enjoyable.
