Recent Tasting Notes
Last night several of my instagram tea friends and I played Among Us for a few hours, so this was one of several teas I drank over the course of that gaming session. I had been craving this tea for a little while, and I was having some trouble finding the sample which is what prompted my big sample reorganization a few days ago.
While it was satisfying to have that craving quenched and while the tea was also very refreshing and pleasant tasting… it did seem like the blend was less flavourful than I had remembered it being? I suppose the change in preparation method could partially be to blame here – but the fruit notes just seemed mellower and less juicy. Notes of indistinct red fruit, pineapple, and floral rose – but not enough of them to hit the way that I reaaaallyyy wanted from them.
Maybe I’ll go back to brewing hot…
This tea was given to me for free by INI Sips as a prize for coming up with the name for the blend! As some of you may know, I have named a handful of different DT blends – so maybe I have a knack for naming things!?
It was very cool to get to try the tea that I had named though, so thank you INI Sips for both picking my name and sending me the tea!
I enjoyed this more than I expected to – and it’s not that I had low expectations but I’m just kind of more neutral towards the flavour of papaya. However, this is a nice sweet and tropical tasting white tea and while I do taste papaya I more taste the sweetness of the pineapple and that’s obviously a flavour I adore a lot! I think it would be really nice chilled, though this cup was hot, but because the base is a white tea there’s not as much body/richness. I do like a gentle/soothing tea but in this can more body is something that the sweeter and more exotic/tropical tasting fruit notes might benefit from.
