343 tasting notes

I could swear I already reviewed this tea, but I just looked through all of my tasting notes, and I can’t find it! Weird! Anyway, this is a sipdown and was originally received from 20monkies.

This is very similar to The Persimmon Tree’s Mandarin Silk/Creme. It’s a creamy, non-artificial or cupcake vanilla. It’s soft on the palate, yet very pleasant. I definitely don’t need both in the house at once but I was able to get through an ounce of this pretty easily. I would definitely keep one or the other in the house at all times, though I will say, this is something you have to be in the mood for since it lasts a few steeps.

I add sweetener to mine.

I recently discovered loose leaf tea and am already addicted (much to my husband’s dismay)! I prefer fruity teas iced and savory teas hot. Looking forward to drinking and chatting.

Some likes/dislikes I’ve been noticing:

Fruity White Teas
lighters Blacks
Most Oolongs (especially greener varieties)
dessert teas
tisanes iced that don’t require added sweetener

Spicy flavors unless in chai
astringent black teas
heavy ginger teas
teas with licorice (as primary ingredients – somehow I like some where the licorice is in the back drop)
heavily oxidized oolongs

For my own reference, I’m only placing “full size” teas in my cupboard.
