It’s a white tea kind of tea! Oh and thank you, Stacy for the sample of this and White Whisper with my last order. I forgot in my white whisper note!
This does taste exactly like cantaloupe. I don’t really know what else to say! It’s quite yummy, but not something I would drink all the time.
And am I the only one who thinks actual canteloupe tastes a little like maple? It’s kind of woody and sweet at the same time. I’ve always thought that and this tea tastes just like that.
Oh man! I don’t like beer,but the hops in this lends such an amazing counterpointt the peach! It brings out the sweetness while at the same time deepening it. Sweet and bitter dance in complicated patterns around my mouth. While trying to figure out what it tastes like my mind flips back and forth between peach sour gummies and peach pie, but neither of those seem quite right. I really need to have this a few more times to fully diagram the flavor.
Oddly enough I also tasted onions on the first couplef sips, which could just be a fluke, but I foundit strange.
Backlog from this weekend
I went to the Windsor Fair in Maine this weekend and they had a whole shed dedicated to maple goods. So while licking a cone of maple ice cream I picked up this tea and a couple of other things.
The base to this is dark, malty and STRONG! It’s a good thing I didn’t steep it for the recommended time on the box. 5 minutes would have made it far too bitter. At a minute though it was great. The base played really well against the maple syrup-y flavoring. This will be a nice one to have in the winter!
Thanks, Nicole Martin for this tea!
This starts off dark and vegetal, tasting very strongly of creamy green beans and earthy mushrooms. As it cools, it starts to taste fruitier and reminds me of putting apricots in red wine- still dark and earthy, but with a little bit of citric brightness peaking out.
