117 Tasting Notes
I believe this sample was old or suffered from Ziploc flavour loss. I received it in a swap and, do to my backlog, waited far too long to sample it. It wasn’t the delight that every other Whispering Pines tea I’ve had is. It’s flavour was so light that I refuse to give it a rating at this time. I will eventually try a fresh sample and use that to determine a rating.
When I first had this tea the strawberry and banana flavour was heavy in the cup. It was nicer cold-brewed but still respectable as a hot tea as well. The last cuppa I had as a sipdown was a couple months later and it had developed and astringency that I was not fond of. Farewell old tea.
Flavors: Astringent, Banana, Strawberry
Sometimes you feel yourself sinking into the earth and no amount of effort can free you.
That is just how it is in life. Nothing can be done to change it. Alas. Sorry for my absence.
I had this within the last 2 months. Apologies if my memory of it is not the sharpest. I know that I really enjoyed it. I know it had a beautiful creamy flavour. It really brought Christmas to my mind and I was sorrowed to only have one cup worth of this delight. Someday I will be able to order this and more from Bluebird, but it will not be anytime soon. If you have access to it though I definitely recommend it for you.
This Strawberry tea is lovely! It has a heavy strawberry flavour that is delicious and a lighter pastry/cake-like note that is so very good. I feel as if it resembles a Dammann Freres slightly. I will enjoy this one.
Flavors: Cake, Pastries, Strawberry
