1113 Tasting Notes
I’m finally tasting the 2014 version! Thanks for the sample Garret
Well, this is a delicious sheng. Not the same as 2012…no smoke at the beginning, a little more bold. Still VERY enjoyable though with a great energy! I’m glad to report that it is a suitable replacement for the last harvest :)
I still plan to use the rest of my sample to do a side by side comparison! Then I should be able to write a better note! :D Fun!!
Thank you so much Courtney for sharing some of your precious Bavarian Cream with me!
This is one of my favorite matcha flavors now. Really good and creamy and vanilla-y :D
It has been a really long time since I actually ate anything filled with Bavarian cream, but it seems pretty spot-on flavor wise!
Thank you Marzipan for a sample of this tea!
This is quite good chocolate tea. So many of them I have tried were artificial tasting, or not paired with a nice base tea…this one is good though! Not quite as good as Fauchon chocolate eclair, which is my favorite, but definitely one of the better ones I’ve had :)
Yay! I am finally trying this guayusa! It has intrigued me for a long time. I requested it as a sample with my Butiki order a while back and kind of forgot about it. I probably should have chosen a more wintery day before it was in the 80s outside, but oh well.
This is really good! I can actually feel the spicy! It isn’t TOO hot though. It isn’t making my eyes water or anything, heh. The tingle feels good on my allergy inflamed sinuses and throat :)
Tastes nice, too. I am drinking it plain but it would be nice sweetened. I’m going to give the other half of my sample to my husband because he loves spicy stuff! I would consider ordering this in the future, for sure.
Thanks Garret for a sample of this with my recent Mandala order!
This is the 2014 harvest. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such large FUZZY white tea leaves! This is seriously some fluffy downy stuff :) The kind of tea you want to pet like a kitty!
I may have slightly underleafed this for my tastes. It is so hard to measure big leaves! This is a smooth, creamy white though. Light but with a rich earthiness. Creamy hay may not sound appealing but that is what it reminds me of. Sweet and summery :)
