1627 Tasting Notes

First let me say, my family has gone through about 4 huge bags of this tea! It comes in packets and you pour it in 12 oz mug or larger. It depends though, the smaller the container, the stronger the flavor. They are tiny yellow granules that melt into a yellow semi-frothy colored fluid. It is VERY strong ginger. It has that nice spicy bite to it and the hint of sweetness from the honey crystals. I definitely do not need to add any sugar. This is absolutely delicious, and helpful during those colds and sore throats!

Flavors: Ginger, Honey, Spices, Spicy, Sweet

Thank you Angel from Teavivre for sending me this sample. When I had first saw this, I expected to see a different type of leaf. Then again, I am not very experienced with pu-erh tea. The leaves were silvery-pale green and fuzzy. It looks like white tea. The smell is very faint. The steeped liquid is a pale gold color and a slightly floral scent. The first sample of this I brewed it western style. The second sample, I used a small gaiwan. The flavors are different. I did enjoy the western style flavor better. Maybe because it muted the flavors a bit and was less astringent.

I had bought a bunch of samplers of Le Palais des thes from Verizon recently and decided to give this one a try. I love the aluminum cylindrical packaging. Lovely tea. I see some flat dragonwell-type leaves mixed with dry mint and blue cornflowers. The scent is a mild mix of mint and bergamot. Upon brewing, the liquid was a light yellow color. Lovely, fruity and minty scent. I brewed this at a cooler temperature, which brewed up a light taste. I really like this tea. Nothing was overbearing and I could taste hints of bergamot and mint. There was no astringency to this tea too.

I finally repurchased a large tin of this tea from Adagio for my husband’s birthday. I did dedicate this to him years ago. We have known each other for 9 years! I love the large tin, though I am not sure how air tight the container is.

This tea is very fragrant and creamy and fruity. This brings back a lot of memories. I love this tea. Its a perfect blend of blueberry, vanilla, and cream. Delicious especially with some coconut sugar and skim milk. YUM!

Flavors: Blueberry, Cream, Vanilla
