1463 Tasting Notes

Sadly, none of the subsequent cups after the first tasted quite as wonderful. Much more like dried hay with a suggestion of jasmine. One more cup to go.

Cold-brewed (3 hours) some of this with honey and made boba. Surprisingly nice jasmine flavor, especially for the price.

Mastress Alita’s Monthly Sipdown Challenge: a tea paired with a favorite hobby

Really more of an interest than a hobby- but I love horror, so this works. This is also one of my favorite teas, though I don’t drink it often. I’m working on sipping through the tin I have so that I can grab some of the updated blend.

I love the smokiness combined with the marshmallows and creme flavor. I added a bit of honey, which really balances the smoke nicely.

This is tasty- dark chocolate and leather. I still prefer Verdant’s Laoshan Black.

I love black teas with sweet potato notes, so I was particularly excited to try this.

It is so sweet, and has a stevia like coolness that lingers in the throat…which I don’t love. It is starchy and sweet potatoey, but the intense sweetness overwhelms it. I’ll have to try this again with different steeping parameters.

Flavors: Stevia, Sweet Potatoes

This isn’t my favorite- it’s a bit boring. A little bit of a sweet, honey flavor but it’s mostly pretty bland.

Artichoke water. Like an artichoke was boiled for an hour and I drank the residuals. But, somehow not terrible? Just much more vegetal than I was expecting.

Bittermelon is my nemesis. I love food, I will try pretty much anything, and there are only a couple things I will no longer eat- bittermelon is one. But, here I am…trying a bittermelon stuffed with tea.

Luckily, this tastes nothing like bittermelon. It’s sweet and tastes like a chocolate filled with caramel. Really glad I fought my anti-bittermelon instincts and gave this a try.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Roasted Barley, Sweet

I have been tempted to buy that for like forever. Good to hear that it doesn’t taste like bittermelon! lol My dad, when he was alive, made the “best” Bittermelon soup and I was the only one who couldn’t stand it. hehe

:D Bittermelon really is something else. I’d recommend trying this, I think it’ll surprise you!

Trying this again. Less smokey this time! But bitter….sigh. Used 195degree water and steeped for under 3min. Perhaps 2min is the way to go? I am set on making this tea work for me.
