89 Tasting Notes

i have been wanting to try all my Jasmines at the same time and since i am starting to group my teas by category, it just got easier to up and actually do it. wasnt able to include the newly arrived swaps but this is the best of the 5 pearls in my possession.

other pearls were: Teavivre, Mark T Wendell, Tazo, and Ovation (in no particular order)

also infused some Jasmine Jazz on the side but that is for another tasting note :)

When I was tasting this, I thought “This tastes fun.”

Hence, the name :)

are you actually licensed to sell tea now? I know you’d had a question earlier about the legalities of opening a business etc… did you get that all sorted out already?

Sounds tasty. I’ve only recently discovered how good honeybush is.

I have not been a fan of white tea even though I knew it was the least processed and of finer leaves – mainly because I could not taste anything from it (someone help me train my tastebuds, please!)

Enter this cherry-flavored tea.

It tastes so natural. Like it’s really how white tea is meant to taste! Haha, I know that sounds weird but that’s how I feel about this tea :)

The first time I had it, I might not have followed the directions because I didn’t care for it so much. But my mom kept on asking me to prepare some, saying that it tasted good and so I made an effort to follow the directions this time.

The liquor is dark like a black tea’s.
The flavor is pleasant enough that my dad did not object to it. He is very particular to flavors.

The extra motivation for wanting this prepared: my mom’s friend has a friend who has cancer and I gave her a 2oz pouch of this. Later on we heard that her friend was wanting to get some more of it because it helped her to feel stronger. True story :)

I have to admit: the first time I had this, I brewed it beside the Blueberries and Cream.

And I kinda liked the creamy one better while they were warm. But cooled, I liked the tartness of the Blackcurrant more!

But like the BB&C, this I feel is better than the average tea in both aroma and flavor :)

Aroma: Attractive. I had a feeling this was gonna be a good one when I was just scooping out a sample for a swap.

Flavor: It did not disappoint! I like this and would buy it again before I run out of this.

I just want to say that my first EG Cream felt kinda weird like “Is this how it is supposed to taste?” but this one was….“Mmmmm, blueberries and cream!”

I think this is better taken while warm…tho it is still yummy after cooling down :)

What are the steeping parameters on this one?

yssah - Love is Tea (LIT)

the usual…3mins @212F for blacks. longer or shorter if you desire as this one doesnt get bitter easily, the only one with weird parameters is the gynostemma. of course greens and whites are usually marked at higher temperatures than usually recommended, and some blacks benefit from 208F more than 212F esp H&S (took me a while to figure that out)

Scent: not too apricotty but apricot enough to be called it :)
Flavor: stable. It does not fluctuate with the temperature.

Tried this at the same time as Mango #2. My initial evaluation for them is similar :)

This was a surprise coz I expected to like the Mango#1 better but this one is good! I would buy this..waitaminute, I already did :D

Cooled: It is still good but the Mango tasted better :)

Scent, dry: sweet like amaretto!
Flavor when warm: so-so
Flavor when cool: good!

Steeped it beside the Caramel
Warm, this tastes better/stronger than itself (cooled) and the Caramel (cooled).

No need to add sugar
Flavor is gone on the 2nd (or was it 3rd?) steep

Chai was my first love, and later fell hard for Earl Grey. Will always have a soft spot in my heart for tisanes. Read my tea love story in my wordpress blog (link below).

Relatively new to the world of loose leaf but not to tea, passionate, eager to learn, and certified tea addict. I have a long way to go but oh, how I want my friends to get into tea too! I want to offer good teas at good prices so if you want to try some samples, check out my blog :)
