516 Tasting Notes
Oh my gooosh! My TeaLish order came today!
If you get a chance to try this company, I’m in love. Super fast shipping time, free shipping for Canadians over $50, an amazing winter sale and so many unique blends… yes!
This was my first one to try. Mm it was simple but satisfying. The strawberry held it’s own against the chocolate, and I got a bakey smell and taste! The boy thought it was just so-so, but I think this is a nice treat that doesn’t overwhelm the tastebuds.
Thanks Tealish, for amazing customer service!! (They even handwrote a little think you note ^^ ee!)
Not going to rate this, because I think what happened was my fault…
The recommended steep time is 5-7 minutes… I may have let it steep for 10 when I meant to steep it for 3 or 4. It was disgusting. Bitter and hibbi all the way. Evil hibbi. I couldn’t finish the cup it was so gross.
So now I have a feeling… even if I steep it right I will taste how I made it the first time. I just can’t handle any hibiscus.
The dry smell was so tempting though… but I think I’ll stick with Forever Nuts.
I haven’t review this yet whaaat?
I got a smaple from Jenn and Ashley (Sending you good energy for your move Ash). It’s great, but I’m getting the same plastic-y feeling in my mouth that I get from other honeybush blends. Still, I feel lucky to have something like this for an evening treat.
I got the cheesecake taste in the aftertaste, very nice and makes a great late night latte!
Edit: Smaples are like samples but with more love.
Sending the rest of this off in a swap.
So I never did review my real experience with this tea… the first time I thought the bitterness was just an error on my part (water too hot, etc), and that that AMAZING drool worthy black currant smell would come out in a later cup.
MM afraid not, I can’t seem to make this one not be a bitter mess! Yay for double negatives. Butbutbut – because of some of the raving reviews I hear from others, I have hope in passing this one on to a better home. It’s only enough for one cup, so if it fails, the world will go on. :)
Prefer this iced, 100%
For any coffee lovers: My coworkers LOOOOVES this tea (of course, now she wrongly assumed all puerh tastes like coffee, luckily I gave her a taste of a few other puerhs from Davids before she spent all her money. I’ll have to bring her some Jerry Ma samples for a better idea!! :) )
Great flavoured puerh, but careful of the steep time. I actually find this one benefits from a rinse! About 3-5 seconds of a rinse and all fishiness disappears for me. It’s a lot more earthy as a result, but I don’t mind.
