drank Pandan Chiffon by ETTE TEA
1139 tasting notes

I’m not sure if I have experienced pandan before, but I have had chiffon teas that were amazing, so I really wanted to try some of this when I saw the group buy being organized. To me this looks and tastes like a light caramel hojicha. It is a little earthy, with low notes dominating the taste and caramel coming in on the aftertaste. I tried adding a little sugar towards the end of my cup and it really just knocked out the balance of this tea. It is now sweet, but I’m not getting the same depth of flavors that I was before. I added a little soy creamer to it and it took a few sips before I could taste anything past the creamer. Now I’m getting a creamy hojicha taste on the sip and something a little different on the aftersip. Maybe that is the pandan? Either way, it is nice and I think I prefer it plain, but unless this tea really grows on me while going through the sample I got, then it likely isn’t a rebuy or must have for me.

Pandan sort of tastes like rice :)

I thought it said Panda at first! LOL

Ah! I could have sworn I have picked up pandan flavored pastries at my local Asian market before, but don’t remember the taste.

I would be super impressed with a panda tea! I bet it would be really expensive considering how much of a rare delicacy pandas are. :P

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
