336 Tasting Notes
This is such an interesting and even unusual tea. I have never tried anything quite like this.
It very light, sparkly, sweet and creamy and tastes exactly like cantaloupe. I was thinking of making this into a tea popsicle when it gets warmer.
Today on Moods and Appetites: Cherry Blossom Pink: http://moodsandappetites.com/cherry-blossom-pink/
Sakura recipes are really cool and ceramic container with hand-drawn cherry blossom branches would be amazing gift with some Sakura Sencha in it of course.
I love teas that are malty so it’s hardly surprising that I often choose Assam.
This one is a bit different from the ones I have tried before: more subtle with hints of citrus and honey and nice malty finish that lingers in your mouth. I had it with a pecan covered in premium dark chocolate. What else a person needs?
I have to admit that pistachio ice cream is my favorite so I was really looking forward to trying out this tea and it did not disappoint. It’s decadent, creamy and does indeed taste like a pistachio ice cream.
Also Butiki Teas and Verdant Tea featured today on Moods and Appetites:
Got this as a sample – much appreciated.
Coconut is one of those flavors that I really like, probably because it ads some creaminess to the tea and since I don’t like milk or cream in my tea it all works out. Some vegetal and fresh notes here, perhaps a bit too “sharp” for my taste. Second steep seems to even it out and I like it better.
Wow, this took me by surprise: it tastes like green beans!
At first I was not too keen on this but the more I drank it the more I started to like it.
It’s bold and savory and smells like raw fava bean pods.
Noticed Verdant tea has a new logo. For what it’s worth I like this version much better than the old one. I would dump the gradient though and keep it red like on your packaging because: 1) less is more 2. consistency 3. it evokes association with red seals on Chinese paintings.
Like the website changes as well. Thumbs up from me :)
