77 Tasting Notes
I just received another order with several teas from Brenden at Whispering Pines—I am always happy with my purchases from Brenden! My order arrived very quickly too.
This is another delicious black tea with clear hints of cocoa, cherries, and light vanilla as the name suggests. I’ve wanted to try this one for a long time but it was so often found to be sold out.I would definitely buy this again…
I am giving Ancient Spirit a slight edge for now (so good).
Up next….Alice and Ambrosia =P
Flavors: Berries, Cherry, Cocoa, Vanilla
Broke out a sample this morning. This GABA was a good choice as I was in need of calm.
The liqueur is a light sunny yellow and it has strong floral & grassy notes. The finish is sweet. Happy Monday teaples.
Flavors: Bitter, Cream, Floral, Sweet, warm grass, Vegetal
Hooray for tea buddy friends! A friend surprised me with a perfect spoonful after I gave her some samples from What-Cha. This is one I probably would not have never picked on my own as I normally don’t go for green teas in general. This is pretty good- it is not bitter at all…it is sweet, grassy, mineraly, I get maybe just a touch of a tart plum skin at the end of the sip. I am not getting a big plum flavor though.
Not bad…I had this on the stronger side with a little milk. Its a nice morning time tea. Currently wondering why the heck I would sign up for 5 classes at one time. Ugh, can’t I just read the books and do the Q&A ? Why oh why must there be so many projects and essays? (gripe, vent, gripe) I much too old for this. At least this will be it for me – I will have reached the highest level/salary scale for my job and/or future pension if there is one to be had here in Illinois. And yet…I am thankful I have tea to see me through it.
I love this tea. Taste was right on. I am thrilled I took a chance on this flavor. I prepared it exactly as directed on the package. I went back to website and it’s gone. So glad I snagged a sample. Noms. (*This now is now under the correct tea)
Flavors: Anise, Licorice, Root Beer, Vanilla
This is quite good but be careful not steep more than 3-4 as it gets bitter quickly imo. Liquor is a very light golden color. Slightly astringent with a dry end sip. Floral, Vegetal, and Mineral notes.
Flavors: Floral, Mineral, Vegetal
