891 Tasting Notes
Yesterday, I drank this tea and wondered how it compared to the premium pearls. I was so curious that I had to brew them up side-by-side today. I am not sure exactly how to describe it, but I guess I would say that this one is a little “creamier”, with an undertone of hay.
I find the pearls to be “silkier” with an undertone of vegetal notes. This is not a bad thing though, it is delicious!
I am not sure if that is a good comparison, but I am finding it difficult to distinguish what makes them different. I was also hoping to find one superior over the other so I would be able to stock one or the other in my cupboard (I previously have been stocking both!), but I can’t choose one that is better than the other.
I am not usually a fan of floral teas but jasmine is my exception. This tea is a silky indulgence, smooth and almost creamy. I love white tea, and this leaf tastes very high quality. I envision myself drinking this on a warm summer afternoon instead of this cold, foggy, fall morning….hey I can dream right!
I had previously rated this tea at 96, but it deserves better than that! 100 it is!
I would like to know how this compares to Teavivre’s green pearls. I have planned to do a comparison but never got around to it. I will make that a plan for sometime this week or weekend. Has anyone else compared them?
I Cold brewed this yesterday for about 6 hours. This makes a creamy coconut brew that tastes a tiny bit sweet. The floral notes are very much in the background which makes me happy because I am not really a fan of floral teas. Yum. I think I will make this tea cold Brewed from now on. Especially since I bought 2 bags, so I have lots to drink.
I have missed this tea. It has really been fall here for awhile in Saskatchewan, but I have just recently started drinking tea again. I had this as a latter today and it did not disappoint. It was sweet and tasted like fall to me! My latte making skills however did disappoint. Oh well, next one will be better! I need to get a milk frother again.
