129 Tasting Notes
Thank you Yezi Tea for this sample!
A strong bodied, slightly earthy tea which is
reminiscent scent wise of old leather and tobacco. (To me)
this is my first Pu’erh tea, and something of an unusual flavor
remonding me of sour dough bread, but it is not at all toasty
and neither is it astringent.
This is not my favorite tea, and yet I am thankful for the introduction
to the world or Pu’erh via this tea.
This could become a staple for me.
I received this today and have steeped it multiple times.
This tea is very consistent steep after steep, and I like that.
Color of an amber-burgundy garnet.
I have no idea why the box calls this a “Diet Chai”
Other than Saffron may perhaps curb the appetite.
This is a medium to robust Chai and I could drink this
several times a day during the cold season.
You can taste the lovely spices, and with the smallest
amount of Stevia it is a sweet, flavorful drink
AND quite a relaxing one, I might add.
Wow! I enjoyed this cup.
Yes, the Jasmine was quite fragrant,
But no soapy taste for me.
This was quite a relaxing tea for me…
leaving me with a comfy, cozy feeling
like your favorite sweater, sleeping in on
the weekend with your lover…
This may not be my all time favorite,
But I will enjoy it while it’s here.
Different strokes for different folks ;-)
Please be patient with me…new to writing tasting notes.
This is a regret of purchase.
All that comes to mind is harsh, bitter, astringent.
The label says to steep 176-194degrees for 4-5 minutes,
But it was getting rather darked so I stopped at 3 minutes.
Honey did not help, but I think if I had let it steep longer
It would have been undrinkable.
Another day I will try this as an Iced Tea and add another note.
Ahhh….a sunny infusion is right
I taste the coconut, citrus and vanilla
Mostly coconut, and I was surprised at how lovely the re-steep is
I am loving this because it is transporting me back to Summertime and the islands
The past few dreary, dark and rainy days have had me ready to skip Christmas
and get right back to SUMMER!
