1597 Tasting Notes

This smells like cinnamon sugar toast.
The flavor is more muted than I would have expected based on the scent. But, the cinnamon is still present.
I’m honestly not tasting any matcha. Just cinnamon, sugar, and coconut. I really wish Deb would use less coconut and maple in her blends. Many great blends have been ruined with the addition of those 2 ingredients.

This is vaguely coconutty, but overall not very flavorful.

This is a daily underwhelming genmaicha. The toastiness of the rice is lacking and the green base is very meh and bitter.

I’m actually pretty underwhelmed by this. I’m getting raisins, and a lot of metallic tang. Otherwise very forgettable.

It’s still so hot, but I am desperate for fall vibes. This didn’t quite scratch that itch.

I’ve generally been pretty underwhelmed by Plum Deluxe, and stopped purchasing after a disappointing advent a few years ago. Decided to try this anyway and still very much underwhelmed.

I’m not getting any apple whatsoever. Very mild buttery cinnamon. So weak and lacking in flavor. Looking at my old notes, apparently I’ve tried this before and had similar thoughts.

I wasn’t very impressed with their advent either… :(

First tea I’m trying out from the group order.

Very pleased with this! It smells SO fresh. I drank it pretty quickly as I was doing homework, so I can’t confidently comment on the notes, but it was so smooth and rich. Excited to keep trying these Georgian teas.

Yay! I haven’t tired it yet, but it seems it is really good based on that you drank it quickly :)

I actually enjoyed this much more than expected. It doesn’t really taste like mango, more like overripe stonefruit, maybe even prunes.

I’m not generally a huge fan of Darjeelings. This seems to be a pretty good representation of why I’m not a fan- very raisiny and astringent. A bit of a drying mouthfeel.

Finished off a 15g pouch. As it ages, I find the coconut more distinct and the overall flavor less creamy. Still delicious, but not as good as a fresh bag.

Finished off a 100g bag! A rare achievement. This is a really nice, consistent black tea. It’s sweet and a touch starchy. I may re-purchase down the line, but I’m a but burned out on it for now.
