From Sil. :)
My first impression is Whoa, butter. This may partially be contributed to by the cream I put in the tea this morning. As I was steeping it I definitely smelled the caramel and salt.
I’m really enjoying this tea. Hopefully I manage to finish the whole mug. :)
I’m other news, I let my kettle rest and it worked this morning! Yayyyyy!!! Definitely need to remember to unplug it now, but the plan is to try to keep it going as long as possible. Maybe closer to Christmas I’ll get the Cuisinart one from Costco.
Another sample courtesy of MissB! This one I had a little extra leaf from what I would normally use, so I added it and tried to compensate via steeping parameters. It kinda worked? It’s still a hint bitter, so I would say this is likely a slighly finnicky tea to begin with. That said, it is caramelly. Intensely. Lots and lots of buttery caramel. Quite tasty, although the slightly too-bold base dampens my enjoyment a bit. I agree with Sil that DF’s buttery green oolong base better serves this flavoring. Glad to have tried this one, thanks!
MissB sent this one our way and while this is a lovely tea, it’s very much an apricot green rather than an apricot pistachio. Unless you consider it “pistachio” because the apricot flavour is a little subdued. Regardless, this is pretty nice and enjoyable. it’s not astringent or too sweet, and while it’s apricot – it’s not IN YOUR FACE :)
MissB sent this one out way and since i had the oolong one today, i figured i might as well also have the black version from another company heh. In a black base, this one smells very much like the other versions that i’ve had with oolong bases. However, once brewed, this one falls short for me. It’s definitely salted caramel…but the oolong does a better job of contributing to that buttery feeling than a black base in my opinion. This was an enjoyable cup but i am already craving more of the oolong haha
Bought this at a Nature et Découvertes store, I think, in Poitiers, France. They have a surprisingly large tea selection, including steepers, pots, books, and looseleaf tea.
Trying to figure out if I like this or not. It’s quite a strong apricot with a bit of sweetener, but then there’s something I think I’m allergic to in it as well. Strawberries? My lips are burning. There’s also a creaminess to this tea, surprisingly thick for a green, zero trace (that I can tell) of the pistachio.
I like it, quite a bit, but this prickly burning has to stop.
Flavors: Apricot, Creamy, Thick
This is good tea. I thought that I didn’t like green teas very much; but this was sort of a life changer. It’s very delicate, and the orange flavoring was subtle, but nice. I think it’s actually meant to be steeped cold, but it’s still delicious hot ( I still let the water cool significantly though.)
