589 Tasting Notes

When I first read their ingredient list for this tea I thought it was a joke. I still kinda do. Fog? What is that supposed to be? They have a crazy mix of stuff but it works well. It reminds me a bit of peach but the apricot bits don’t make me think peach. Also not tasting much Lychee. This is quite good warm but I am enjoying it more luke warm.

I’ve been completely forgetting to mention that these are from the Hidden TTB. Just been so happy to try so many different teas! I’m loving this one! I’ve tried a few different versions of this by other companies and this one definitely ranks near the top. It’s like sipping apple pie. I’m going to munch on a Trefoil in a moment and I’m sure that will enhance this.

Oh yea. Good pairing.

drank Butter Tart by LuxBerry Tea

Cumin in tea is weird. This tea is… odd. Not gonna lie. I do not think of butter tart I think more of a main dish then a tart. It’s a bit spicy. Not like chai but …I don’t know know how to explain it. Nice earthy base mixes well with this tea. I won’t rate this one since it’s not bad but I just am not a fan.

The lavender in this tea has made me sleepy. I should really go workout but thanks to the smooth taste and soothing aroma of this tea I just want to fall asleep. But I can’t. There is a lil one that would eat plants if I did. But seriously. They did this one right. If you want a more intense lavender flavor just steep it a lil longer. But not too long or it will get bitter.

Really on a roll now…. yet another tea that I oversteeped. _ I blame my contacts. Something is weird so I am going in today. My first sip wasn’t that great but my second one was nomnom. Creamy, grassy goodness. Some slight vegetal notes, oo now here comes the floral and the orchid too. Lovely. My favorite part of this tea though is the smell of the wet leaves. Reminds me of the smell when you walk off the plane into the terminal in Lihue…

I’m not getting many tropicals tasting notes but I am tasting a lot of honey. I almost can’t even taste the green base.

Thank you Inkling for this sample! I’m learning much! Well drat. The water wasn’t nearly as warm as I thought it was, more like luke-warm. As I dive more into the world of oolong I am finding it interesting that oolongs can be like green or black and sometimes something completely unique like milk oolong. This one is definitely closer to the black side. A darker brown color. Earthy and woodsy notes. I’m not going to rate this simply because I’m not a huge fan of plain black tea, which this reminds me of.

Have any of you read Boys Over Flowers (Hana Yori Dango) I’m re-reading it right now. Good stuff.

I think that was the first Shoujo manga I ever read. Definitely a classic! Do you read Skip Beat? That’s my current favorite.

Yes! I wish they would update faster! Though… I guess I would rather have a better story then faster chapters haha.

rosebudmelissa

I agree. The current arc definitely has me hooked. I’m so curious about her mom!

I’ve been very forgetful about my tea while it’s steeping. Sometimes it’s because of a poopy diaper and other times it’s because it took longer for me to get to the end of a chapter then I expected. Needless to say I did it with this one. Think this had about 7 mins of steeping time. Luckily it’s not bitter… just more spicy. Which I don’t entirely mind. I like spicy chai. Though I’m not getting many hints of vanilla too be honest. It’s there just very subtle.

Let me try some Almond milk.

Ooo not bad! It maintains the spiciness of the chai but adds a nice flavor and kinda brings out the vanilla a bit more!

I… uh…. I’m not tasting Lychee or Jasmine. Just lots of vegetal notes. Maybe hints here and there but I feel like I’m imagining them.

drank Oolong Peach by Two Guys' Tea

If you like the flavor of peach you need to try this. The peach is a total overwhemler. Oolong? Not so much. It’s there, very subtly. This oolong reminds me more of a black tea because of it’s earthyness. There is also a slight bitterness that I’m not too fond of.

Stay at home mom of two kids. I’ve been drinking tea for quite awhile but figured now that my studies don’t have to reside on my job I can study up on tea. There is so much to learn!

Lately my tastes have been leaning toward unflavored blacks like Big Red Robe and Amba Thieves. I have a special place in my heart for greens though; especially Genmaicha.

I am a tea consultant for Tea Queens and Steeped Tea but I’m not good at pushing sales or home parties… But I do love to talk tea so if you have questions I would love to talk tea!
