3704 Tasting Notes
Sad Sipdown (made even sadder because this was removed from my cupboard so my number doesn’t change).
Anyways, I decided to splurge since tomorrow I am starting a clean eating challenge and that means no tea. So, for my last day of tea (for the next two weeks), I decided it was finally time to break out the last of this amazing sample courtesy of Cavocorax. This tea is creamy, bright, fresh and delicious and I am sad to see it go.
I cold brewed this a while ago and then forgot about it until my mom reminded me that it was in the fridge. I feared that it have gone bad especially since I brewed the whole sample from Roswell Strange but luckily it did not so now I am sipping on what tastes like a combination of watered down fuzzy peaches and sweet honeydew melon. It is really interesting and stands out from the other herbals I tried. I don’t know if I would want this in quantity but I am certainly enjoying this bottle. Thanks tea twin!! 166.
So I followed the direction of the other white tea I was preparing and steeped this for 5 minutes at 175C. Big mistake. The white tea base has taken over overwhelming the delicious raspberry jam flavor and sweet sugary icing. I get hints of raspberry every now and then but mostly it is the base which is not what I hoped for when I brewed up the cup. So in the future I think I will stick to a shorter steep time because that seems to work better for me. Nonetheless, thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to have this tea yet again.
This is good. Very good. he coconut is present and strong but true to the nut. It is creamy and rich but not lotiony in the slightest. The cocoa compliments the coconut beautifully and adds some depth to the cup. The base keeps everything tame while not overwhelming the flavors. I am not usually a white tea fan but I can get behind this. Thank you Memily for sharing such a tasty treat!!
So my Butiki order arrived today (yay!) and I was debating between brewing Red Queen Cupcake or Butterscotch & Hazelnut Mocha Candies but since I had to make it in a travel mug I decided against them. Instead, I decided to try icing this tea. Alas, all I am getting is Adagio’s black base with some coconut creaminess. It’s drinkable but certainly nothing to write home about. Still, I am happy for the opportunity to try it so thank you NayLynn for the share :)
