29 Tasting Notes
Enjoying this mixed with some Citron Sonata…needed some girth (questionable word choice) to start out a rainy Monday
Who would have thought that mixing this with Ti Kuan Yin would be the perfect complement to the 2nd round of the NFL draft…steeped 2 times and both perfect. Hard to mess up Ti Kuan Yin, really….perfect base for ANYTHING
Mixed in some Body & Mind from Teavana and it’s getting me through to the weekend on a rainy day…pick me up indeed
Got the flavored tea sampler from Adagio and use these as little “enhancers” in many of my green teas. I put a 1/2 teaspoon of this in with my Body + Mind by Teavana (2tsp to 16 oz) and it REALLY added a sweet zest to an otherwise light tasting tea, but, didn’t overpower it
This one is INTERESTING…in a very stellar way.
Has a soft, gentle taste (sound like a romance novel) but there is a definate fruity scent and a little hint of maybe pear or something along that line.
It’s actually a mix of green and white…really invigorating. Had it before and during a meeting in the afternoon and it had me zinging.
Plus, the leaves expand tremendously during steeping…got 2 good 16 oz glasses out of 3 teaspoons.
Tried this yesterday after loving the white peach sample I got from another company. Not enough peach for me in the flavor.
WOW…in my early tasting days, this is hands down the BEST I’ve had.
The smell is incredible, like a fresh fruit display on the street…the taste isn’t too citrus but gives enough flavor to make you completely forget it’s a green. Yet, you totally get that wonderful, wholesome feeling that green gives you.
I can see why if you started with this, as several I know did, you’d be hooked on tea.
I love it when a FREE sample rocks. The smell it melt your face, even with the small little bag I opened up. But, you can taste all the good parts of it right away…sweet, not bitter lemon…surrounded by the slight taste of ginger (which I know well from my love of Moscow Mules). This sample will likely turn into an order.
Upon first look, I thought it was a green tea. Then, add water and the leaves turn a dark, rich black. It has a smell that reminds me of bailing hay as a kid, but, that is a good thing in this case. Strong, bold taste that is somehow unique, but, takes in all the familar things you love about other black tea. Right on.
