drank Golden Mango by Lovare
4062 tasting notes

Another tea swap teabag.

This is nice – the flavoring actually reminds me of Lupicia’s Ripe Mango Oolong, which is a good thing. Quite close to actual mango, unlike most mango-flavored things in my experience. It is a bit on the strong side though, and it doesn’t help that the green tea doesn’t have much flavor. There’s a touch of grassiness, but mostly it’s the mango flavoring show. Still pleasant and fun to try, though!

Flavors: Dry Grass, Floral, Mango, Smooth, Sweet, Tropical

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

So lovely the mango is nice, especially for a tea bag!

I haven’t tried the mango tea from Lupicia. My kids don’t like mango but I like it in Jardin Saivage so I bet I would like the Ripe Mango Oolong.

I love their Ripe Mango Oolong and also Alphonso Mango, which is a black tea.

drank Raspberry Vanilla by Lovare
1872 tasting notes

Although I have steeped it as recommended, I felt it is a bit too long. When hot, all flavours were a little hidden behind the strong black tea from Ceylon; however as it cools down, at first fruit notes start to appear. A lots of raspberry (afterall, it contains 5 % of those fruits), fresh and genuine flavour. And after a few minutes when lukewarm, a vanilla flavour take its part as a lovely, creamy custard flavour.

Maybe a splash of milk (or alternative) could make it a bit creamier and maybe it would make the raspberry flavour pop. Sadly I have been expecting more (but that’s because the wonderful packaging, I am sure!)

Preparation

A sipdown! (M: 17, Y: 17)
“A buttery pastry” tea as described by Courtney is top-notch description of this tea. Sadly, it smells better than it tastes, but if you are looking for some flavour profile descriptors, here are a few: buttery pastry, vanilla, brown sugar and creamy.

Prepared as a family pot tea — 2L / 2 pyramids steeped for 5 minutes.

And one note: this tea is best hot or lukewarm. Cold it’s not good.

Steeped, this has a buttery pastry scent. I would say the scent is more enticing than the actual flavour, but it was still a very smooth cup that I enjoyed. Thanks Martin for sharing!

Definitely scent is much better than flavour, but still very nice. I haven’t wrote a note yet, as I haven’t been sure what I was tasting. But now, I know it is buttery pastry and those words I was missing.

drank Oolong Tea by Lovare
1872 tasting notes

Received from postcrossing from Ukraine. Sender claims it is okay tea, good for bagged, but that she prefers loose leaf one. I was so happy to hear something about the tea from another tea lover!

And I have to agree completely. It smells bit roasty, but actually it is hidden florals. Steeped for 4 minutes, 90°C water (was boiling about two minutes before I filled the mug). After steeping it brought pretty nice aroma of florals again, not sure about the lilac they claim; but it was nice. Nice taste as well, but kinda vegetal for me and slight astringency as well. Bit mood boosting as well, could be little bit on oolong side, than green – if I do a blind tasting, I would think it is another good, but not great, green tea.

Song pairing: nothing actually, but listened to few Placebo songs, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JJAXwAaA2w

Flavors: Floral, Roasted, Vegetal

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 15 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

Have you seen Placebo in concert?

Martin Bednář

Unfortunately not derk but I like their music and lyrics.

I saw them maybe mid to late 2000s. Worth going if they come close to you (and still sound good).

Martin Bednář

Nothing close by this season. Kyiv is reachable, but I don’t have money left :)
