1258 Tasting Notes
I’ve really been trying not to place any tea orders lately, as I haven’t been sipping through as much lately (mostly because of the weather). But, DavidsTea sent me a 50% off everything coupon, so I couldn’t resist.
I mostly ordered sale stuff, so I got a ton of tea (just what I need) for extremely cheap. Though, I did get a lot of cold brewable teas, which is mainly what I’ve been drinking. This is one of those. It’s quite nice- well balances tart lemon and sweet strawberry. I wish it were perhaps a tad more tart, but overall it’s really pleasant.
This tea is SO strange. I find it so savory, that it’s actually tasting a lot like miso soup. It’s very mushroomy, with notes of wet soil and tree bark. The Whispering Pines website describes this tea as “inspired by the deepest and most ancient of forests,” which actually really fits.
I’m not tasting any of the vanilla, though.
Flavors: Bark, Mushrooms, Umami, Wet Earth
Brought a pouch of this to work, as it really brightens my day whenever I drink it. My friend/coworker has mentioned that she wanted to see how I prepare my tea, so I offered to make her a cup. It was fun talking to someone new about tea.
As for the tea- as perfect and delicious as always. The vanilla in this batch is particularly strong.
