357 Tasting Notes
A fun tea – magically blue/green. I think I used most of this cold brewing.
Fruity, kind of funky aftertaste (bamboo). Refreshing, grassy.
I noticed as I drank a lot of it that the bamboo flavor kept building and I started to dislike it. I probably wouldn’t get this again.
Purchased 2017 @ Midwest Tea Fest
Flavors: Bamboo, Fruity, Grass
Sipdown. I put off drinking this tea for a long time because it never looked appetizing. I’m not one for matcha. And matcha, black beans, and genmaicha to promote “healthy living” per the label sound like one of those things for you to do that you do because it’s healthy and not cause you like the taste.
Which is where I’m at with this tea. It’s cooked beans and rice that have been overdone with some added grass clippings thrown in. Yuck. But is gone now so yay!
Flavors: Beany, Grass, Rice
I found this in the back of my tea cabinet. Pretty sure I moved with this tea to my current house, so that makes it at least 6 years old, probably older than that. I tried it and surprisingly it doesn’t taste off after so long as it is a flavored tea.
Unintentionally aged flavored darjeeling tea is not that good. It’s drinkable, but pretty flat. There’s also kind of an mouth coating affect that appears after finishing it. I’m sure that’s due to the age of this tea and flavoring. Not a sip down yet, but I should finish this sometime in the next couple of weeks.
