567 Tasting Notes
Korean tea. Of course the Koreans drink tea. I don’t know why I felt surprised at first. Maybe I just thought they drank a lot of Japanese and Chinese but didn’t have their own? Anyway, this kinda reminds me of a sencha. Greenish-yellowish water color. Grassy and slightly…very slight fruity aroma. Very clean and light flavor. Grassy of course, with a bit of a marine like hint.
Honestly, if you don’t like straight green tea you won’t like this but if you do I think you will enjoy it.
Flavors: Grass, Seaweed
Always have wanted to try this tea. I’m quite impressed. So creamy and smooth. I haven’t had any milk in a long time. My husband is allergic and I try to keep dairy products out of the house. That and not having straight up milk has really helped improve my skin.
Is there any milk in this? Man my taste buds are so confused. The lovely vegetal oolong the silky, smooth milkish whatever it is that causes that flavor.
I have to work tonight so I figured now would be a good time to steep a cup of this mate. By the way for those of you who are curious it’s pronounced ma as in mama and te like tay. :)
It’s been a long time since I’ve had mate so I feel that I can’t be a very good judge but I’m enjoying this cup. Flavors of hay and a slight mintyness to it. To be honest I don’t taste the kettle corn. But with the roasty flavor of the tea I can see the comparison.
Oh yummy! So sweet and decadent! Even the steeped leaves have an intense sweet smell to them! For some reason I am thinking and tasting popcorn! Ah crap… now all I’m thinking about is popcorn. I can barely even taste the black tea base. It hits my tongue first but is immediately taken over by the white chocolate, and then the popcorn flavor gets the rest.
Flavors: Popcorn, White Chocolate
This is another one in the set of Christmas teas that I mainly bought because I love the art on the tin. The tenant self is also very appealing. they close tightly and fit plenty of loose leaf tea. But enough about the tin. I hadn’t actually looked at what tea came with this one but of all straight black tea this one is probably one of my favorites. It has a sweet scent in the dry leaves. Generally I find it’s a bit sweeter then other black teas when steeped. I find it hard to describe this one. I know people say malty but I guess I can’t really understand it. Like saying salty without ever having tasted salt.
I added a bit of amaertto honey to mine. So yum.
