1120 Tasting Notes
This is delicious, it is a creamy buttery oolong with notes of caramel. It is very smooth and slightly sweet.
The package states that it is aging so I can only imagine how delicious it is when it is fresh! If I ever put in an order here, this would definitely be on the list!
The resteep was enjoyable, with less creamy caramel.
I am really enjoying these French teas, it seems like their bases have a slight floral note about them….or is that just my bias?? lol
This vanilla is fairly strong, it doesn’t taste completely natural but I don’t mind that boozy vanilla flavour either. I really enjoyed this one and I think it would be super good with a splash of milk to round out that vanilla.
This is a really good pear tea which is a hard flavour to get right—and taste natural. The pear isn’t as sweet as it may have been in a white or green blend, it would likely be brightened up with a touch of sugar. There is a slight floral note in the middle of the sip and a slight astringency in the aftertaste.
Overall, probably one of the best pear teas I have tasted.
This was a lovely green tea, the base was fairly mellow which I enjoy. It was fruity with peach and cantaloupe being in the forefront. Now that I read the description, I guess I got some passion fruit but no strawberry. This was one delicious cuppa and I imagine it would be great cold brewed as well. I would be scared that the base would be more pronounced in a cold brew though.
Thank you Sil for this sample.
I have never had a French tea before, so I was excited to try it.
This is a beauty of a tea, if not a touch delicate. The cocoa and cherry are barely there but sure make for a smooth cuppa. The base is nice, a little on the delicate side as well, but very tasty!
Like Sil has mentioned in her notes, I might try a longer infusion next time to see if the flavours come out a little more.
Thank you for the sample Sil
I can see why this is called holiday blend. It is bready/malty/ and a little fruity. Cocoa notes are present for me way in the background. This would be good to drink during the holidays wrapped up in a warm blanket reading a book. It’s just that cozy…..or should I say damn fine???!!!
