Recent Tasting Notes
I was first introduced to tea some years ago by my British roommate at the time. This tea always reminds me of the tea he used to make. I have tried a couple of other Ceylons, and this one is still currently my favorite. I drink mine with milk and sugar, and it never fails to make my taste buds feel at home. For me, this tea has a nice malty flavor with a hint of citrus. I will drink this tea in the morning, but in my opinion, it is perfect for afternoon tea.
Honestly, the Wuyi tastes like a riceless genmai cha, but with the toasty flavor. It has a couple unique undertones that I don’t even have adjectives for which make it pretty flavorfull, but it hits my “meh” button, sadly.
Flavors: Earth, Floral, Rice, Wood
Like drinking a lighter version of a chocolate covered cherry! A little sugar improves the flavor on this one. I like the cherry taste, but I could see how it might taste artificial to people. Nothing elegant and refined here, but yummy.
Flavors: Cherry, Chocolate
Served this Chicago based tea at my book club for a Chicago based tea (Devil in the White City). The peppery spice scent knocked me back in the best of ways when I opened it. The scent translated to the flavor pretty nicely as well.
Pepper, clove, and ginger dominate. The black tea base was just the slightest bit astringent but not at all distracting. In fact, I bet if I dropped the temp down about 5 degrees (F), it wouldn’t be a problem.
Flavors: Astringent, Clove, Ginger, Peppercorn
Served this Chicago based tea to go with a Chicago based book (Devil in the White City) at book club. Really sweet, slightly fruity and floral without being perfume-y. I didn’t think I was going to like this as much as I did. Well done.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Sweet
Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Six – Tea #19
This one is lovely — I love a good vanilla rooibos. This didn’t have actual vanilla pieces, but I didn’t actually think there would be. But adagio’s vanilla flavoring is always delicious enough for me! Two great steeps of sweet rooibos with the same amount of flavor. No flavor fading! It’s nice to know I like this one in case I’m looking for a vanilla rooibos to stock up on. Vanilla REALLY works with rooibos…. to me, that might be what rooibos most tastes like naturally? New idea for me….
Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Six – Tea #18
This was an okay green or white tea….both? Not the best but not the worst. The look of the leaves almost reminded me of snow frosted pine needles. The flavor just seemed like a standard white/green flavor with nothing special about it. Again, THIN baggies aren’t the best. This is just a note to say I tried this, really. Teaboxes always turn me into a tea monster. I think I just wrote six tasting notes. Three to be posted now, three tomorrow. Or I just try to keep up with three a day.
