509 Tasting Notes
Nov 29th. This tea is from a variety package for cooking with tea that I got for Christmas. It’s not one I would have ordered myself but I’m game to try it. Definitely a little put off by the artificial flavor notation in the ingredients list.
Dry smell – pecans, toffee
Taste- nutty, apples, pecans, toffee. Flavorings stay balanced through both steeps.
Flavors: Apple, Nutty, Pecan, Toffee
Smell: ginger, cloves, cinnamon
Taste: bread, cinnamon, ginger, clove
Continues to taste like gingerbread throughout the entire cup.
2nd steeping: as good as the first, I get more ginger from this steep.
Very warming cup of tea. The ginger is hanging out at the back of my tongue in between sips.
Flavors: Bread, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger
Bought this tea from their store in June, but is not available on their website.
Dry leaf – smell pineapple, see pineapple chunks, strawberry. Leaves are pretty broken.
During steep: get more strawberry.
At first sip, flavors aren’t too bright, pineapple strawberry. As it cooled, pineapple disappeared and I only get strawberry. I got a odd taste at the back of my tongue.
Not sold on this tea – odd taste makes me not want to drink again. It coated my mouth with freshness in a bad way.
Ended up drinking a beer to get the taste of it out of my mouth. Also brought tea drinking to an end on a sour note.
I am concerned about drinking more of this tea and as I’m remembering drinking this tea. I think I might just discard the rest of it. There’s way too much good tea out there to deliberately subject myself to the bad ones.
Flavors: Pineapple, Strawberry
Bought this in June from their store, but it doesn’t show up on their website currently. Flavors : lemon, basil, oolong. Flavors are faint. I hope that doesn’t mean that the tea is old. As a first tasting, it’s fine. I need try again. Maybe I’ll add more leaf.
Flavors: Herbs, Lemon
I thought I used to like this. Basically added what was left in the tin to my steeper. Bad taste followed by tart raspberry. Really astringent at end. Blah…I’m so glad this is gone. There’s supposedly white tea in here, but I can’t taste it at all.
Flavors: Astringent, Raspberry
