Sample from evol ving ness
So i have to say that i actually ended up spitting this one out. I hadn’t looked at what the blend was made of before i drank it….my mistake. The oolong has a great aroma to it, and before the amacha kicked in it was a good cup..but about 2 secons in to the sip the amacha kicked in and it was like drinking a cup of stevia that’s been slightly dilluted with water. i tried to weaken the brew by adding some water to it but i just couldn’t get it down. super sweet… ick.
in case anyone else is curious:
Sample from evol ving ness this is a revisit for me and after a couple cups i’ve decided that i’m done with this tea. I loved it in the past and these days i’m finding it to be just a touch too sweet for me. Still enjoyed the revisit very much but i think that i’m good to leave this one alone for another year or so and see where i land then :)
I tried this one because a number of folks had extolled the amazingness of this one. I hadn’t had a chance to place an order so i was glad to see it in the box to try. Thanks for sharing with us LP! I have to say, i love the shou in this one, and the addition of the “rum” aka aging in the barrels is a fun experiment. slightly sweet….earthy…creamy. interesting experiment!
