1118 Tasting Notes
I know I just reviewed this tea yesterday , but I saved the leaves from yesterday and brewed them up this morning. I wanted to resteep yesterday but I ended up out of the house most of the day.
I was surprised to taste this today and find that it was just as good as yesterday. That deserves an increase in rating!
Thanks Evol Ving Ness for the sample!
I really enjoy white tea, and this one was good. I didn’t find that banana was very prevalent which is ok with me because I am not a huge fan of hot banana. I found the most prominent notes to be custard, strawberry and caramel.
I am going to cold brew the leaves as well because I think these flavours will be good cold.
UPDATE: I cold brewed the leftover leaves and the flavouring was mostly absent and it just tastes like cold brewed white tea. I will likely cold brew the rest of the sample.
I got this in a fantastic package from Evol Ving Ness! Thank you so much!
Normally, Ceylon isn’t generally my favourite base but pair it with vanilla and it’s delicious! I detect slight cocoa and cherry notes in here too or maybe I am just crazy. The vanilla is smooth and tastes natural.
Capital Teas is now on my list to order from! Thanks Evol…;)
I needed another tea to cold brew without the dreaded hibiscus. I don’t mind hibiscus when it doesn’t overwhelm the tea, but it gets a little tiring when it is in EVERY fruit tea. Anyway, there’s none in this one so yay!
And really, I couldn’t pass up the 50% off sale they had in March. I have so much tea already, so what’s a little more right ;p. I picked up 100g of it because it was so cheap!
I cold Brewed this tea for about 20 hours. This tea is sweet coconut and pineapple. It tastes very tropical and almost like a pina colada, which is my favourite alcoholic drink. Yum
I couldn’t pass up the sale that they had awhile ago. In the cart this went!
The leaf is not quite “pearl like”, but more like “snails” IMO.
The taste is slightly sweet with lots of malty, cocoa notes. Delicious.
I only steeped once because after my morning tea, I ate a whole bunch of Easter chocolate (I bought a bunch on sale on Monday….bad girl, I didn’t NEED that chocolate). Too much caffeine today to have another cuppa. But next time, I will definitely resteep.
