1696 Tasting Notes
Welps. This is definitely just an average oolong now, after all that time! To be fair, I’ve had it for a few years now. Too bad we bought so much that I couldn’t drink it down very fast.
Perhaps I can use it up in Kombucha. I have a lot of tea that needs to be used up.
I wonder how many baked goods I can use tea in…
I’m making Kombucha for the first time!
My jug isn’t nearly as big as it should be so we’ll see how things work out. I cut the recipe by two thirds so I’m a little worried that the the ratio may be off in some way. (do you need a minimum amount of anything to get the party started? I don’t know…)
Bah. I guess I have to wait and see. This is the not so fun part. I’ll have to rely on other teas to keep me entertained!
I drank the last of my sample today. For some reason I thought I’d had all of it but apparently not?! Anyhow, it lost some of its character over time. I guess it doesn’t age as well as Scotch heh (see previous review).
Oh well, I expected that! Sipdown achieved. And it was still quite a delish cuppa
I bought this the other day at our board meeting. Oh man it is so tasty. Warm and nutty. Macadamia? Otherwise very similar in profile to a Sencha, but less harsh and cutting. There is also a hint of butter. This is definitely a comfort tea. Now, I only grabbed 25g, since it was pretty expensive, but yeah, that was very much worth it!
Also, I am getting a rather pleasant buzz. There must be a decent amount of theanine in here hehe. Another few cups and I’d be tea high :D
Flavors: Butter, Grass, Nuts
Naooooooooo! I wrote a note, and a good one! Aghhhhhh. I don’t know what happened. I was typing and then all of a sudden I was on the previous screen. But my fingers were nowhere near the tab or F5/6 etc buttons. GAH! way to ruin my vibe Steepster. I was on SUCH a role.
Anyhow, I am in love with this tea. At first I was not feeling it without any milk, but after correcting that, I started swooning immediately.
My first impression was honey, or maybe burnt honey…. which led me to think of molasses. And then it was cocoa. But roasted cocoa, the dark kind with just a bit of milk in it. Very decadent!! It’s almost like a hybrid between hot chocolate and tea.
I feel like I’ve indulged in a special(the tooth rot kind) treat, only I added just half a teaspoon of sugar and two splashes of milk!
I need to get me some more. Thank you for the sample Tsaa!!!
I didn’t buy much of this. Kinda wishing I’d had my cupboard under control when I made this order so I could have justified a bigger purchase, cuz oh man this will be gone soon, and for good!!! Sad sad sad.
Where will I go for my gourmet tea after Stacy closes shop??? Hmmm. I have some scouting to do it seems
