1092 tasting notes

Shae’s ADVENT CALENDAR, December 18

Oh, it is puerh hidden in today envelope? Apparenly not. Tea Drops. I remember tasting notes from Roswell Strange maybe? I like the concept…

Well, I saw lots of crystals when I took it from the plastic packaging. I thought it will be very sweet. I was playing with the photo — behold my bamboo tweezers from Tangpin as a gift with tea order. I have tried to use it with the tea, but I need to learn it I guess :D

Anyway, lets dissolve this flower.
It dissolves quite quickly and I got just a cloudy brown colour reminding me a bottled iced teas. Not a bad thing necessarily; but I knew it isn’t great. I took a sniff and I noticed roses and sweet note of the tea.

When sipping, when it was warm-hot it was rose-y, but quite weakly. Sugar was overpowering everything and yep, it was soo sweet to me. I didn’t get ANY bergamot in this, rose was quite weak, base was “killed” by sugar and overall it was bit weird experience.

I am surprised that you guys were liking it. I wasn’t. But finished the cup!

Love the bamboo tweezers! I wasn’t sure what you meant by “dissolve the flower” until I saw the photo — what an interesting concept to have a flower-shaped tea!

LOL! Martin I use my bamboo tongs to get toast out of the toaster. I know I won’t accidentally electrocute myself that way…

Courtney

White Antlers I had to laugh seeing your comment! Safety is key!

Toaster tongs, genius!

Martin Bednář

Ah, that’s what they are for. Not tea, but toasts. LOL.
Yep, language can be bit tricky Courtney, I agree, it is interesting concept, but unfortunately didn’t liked the tea. But if it is instant; I can understand using the shapes. It is at least nice eyecandy.
