Recent Tasting Notes

An oolong blend with the name pear in it… I had to get this :)

While the tea doesn’t taste like what it sounds like, it is a nice bold comforting drink. By my evaluations, I would consider this an oolong chai. There is no pear notes, but I didn’t expect them when I saw the product steeping. In one scoop, there was a total of 14 cardamon pods; I’m not kidding. Cardamon and cloves give the spice to the tea, but I’m unable to pick up any vanilla or anything else because of how strong their presence is.

I loved the idea of having a gin and tonic tea. But I didn’t get the “tonic” taste. What I did end up with was a delicious lime flavored mate with hints of mint.

WHAT THE HELL?”
That is what I said when I opened this tea… this was a free sample so I didn’t know what to expect. Imagine opening up a package of this without knowing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/183102436/kukicha-tea-organic-twig-tea?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=twig%20tea&ref=sr_gallery_2

Yeah… it is 100% twig.
Interestingly enough, this is quite decent.

I received my order for yesterday from Urban Earth. So far I have really liked what I grabbed.

You should try that pu’erh then to confirm I wasn’t lying :p

Kukicha twig tea needs to be boiled 5 minutes before drinking to extract the tea. This was the tea for macrobiotic vegans back in the ‘80s when you couldn’t buy anything other than Twinings. I drank kukicha for years.

Oh dang! Sad to hear! I have samples coming from her. Hope I have better luck with mine.

Liquid Proust

Did you order this one too? I’m curious as to how others would rate it. The caramel chunks are just huge.

Nichole/CuppaGeek

I didn’t. I wanted to see what you thought first.

I sent a request for samples of:Vanilla Spiced Pear,Lady Grey, and Gin & Tonic. Hopefully she will sell one a sample of each. I decided I won’t base my view of Urban Earth on this tea alone so I need others for further evaluation.

Nichole/CuppaGeek

That is basically the order I have coming to me minus the Lady Grey.
