107 Tasting Notes

i know i should rinse first but as i read that somebody enjoyed the first steep of puerh the most, i decided to taste it. i liked the flavor actually. but it was lost subsequent steeps. drank them still, for the healthy elements :)

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA

it’s good coffee..but not tasting any puerh. hmmm…maybe flavored puerh is not for me. did a side by side with samovar blood orange and natural tea leaf lavender puerh. i was able to detect puerh in the others but the coffee flavor in this makes up for the lack. great for those wanting to sub tea for coffee but now im wondering about the caffeine content of this.. it might be half coffee half tea lol

i thought today would be a green day but as i was going through the yunomi box, found this one up next..just as well coz i found a chocolate to snack on :D

a quick first steep right after boiling, i could sense the maltiness. i like to try tea when it is not yet too strong. it is nice. second steep twice the time but middlish is not good..so im steeping for longer for a stronger flavour.

hm! i thought id left it too long as the tea had already sorta cooled but rather than bitterness, i get a slight sweetness, initially elusive but gently spreads out. maybe it’s just my inexperience but i dont get any cocoa notes on this one? still good tho. (bites on nestle crunch and sips..hm. i think this tea is better not paired with chocolate. or i just got the wrong chocolate, lol.

I’ve got a couple of Japanese blacks from Yunomi. I find them different but quite good.

yssah

one of the stuff in the box was kyobancha roasted green tea..left it steeping for far too long and it became a strong dark drink just like coffee but not bitter at all XD

surprising! sweet in scent and in flavor. how is it possible to make a dragonwell taste so different from the others? cold steeping this :)

tea number 7 of the yunomi groupbuy.

so it was salt hahaha. i thought it to be sugar but it does make sense to preserve it in salt too. i would still prefer sugar as a preservative for this tho.

i am slightly successful on this one but still have to try again with #2 batabatacha. i rinsed it as instructed and steeped. it was still a bit salty so i set this one aside. the 3rd is ok, i can taste the sakura without the saltyishness. it is so pretty, i took out my nice white ceramic teacup and took lots of pictures. then inspiration: added some sencha for the most real sakura sencha ever! cold steeping in the fridge right now!!!!

went back to the 2nd steep (after rinse) and sipping it. hmm, not bad..not as salty or maybe i am just getting used to it? acclimatization does wonders apparently. and im even thinking the sakura flavor is more pronounced now. sip. sip again. sips until the cup is finished. can’t wait to try the cold steep!

ps. ive always wanted to get some of those cherry blossoms from japan and now it is here

i like how this was powdered so finely and the flavor was also good. well, all of the flavors were good! there was not one that i did not like. i also like that they are healthy herbs. easy to prepare – just add water :)

do not be deceived by the unassuming teabag. brewed lightly, it is a smile in a cup.

follow up: 3rd steep was still really good. the 4th steep, a full steep, is still as flowery as the first (the earlier steeps were shorter tho, eastern style)

delightful! i made a weak first steep and that was the first adjective that came to mind. subtle and smooth, too..on a 2nd longer steep. i love this! thank you for sharing some with me, Ellyn! hugs all the way from the Philippines! :D

Chai was my first love, and later fell hard for Earl Grey. Will always have a soft spot in my heart for tisanes. It has been a while since I last joined and now I am more into matcha but still into other teas most definitely.

Swapped some teas here before with the LIT brand and had to change name to be registered and now selling loose leaf tea in the Philippines as Khesed :)
