1792 Tasting Notes

78

Thank you to Teabento for providing a generous sample in my parcel! This was a lot lighter than I would have expected. Almost crystalline in comparison to what I’m used when it comes to LB. By crystalline, I’m referring to the airy floral notes in here. There is only a faint dusting of cocoa mixed in with the grainy undertones in here.

Sipdown! I’m trying to finish off tea from my last order since my mystery bag order came in the other week and I haven’t even touched it yet, not until this and a few other things were gone. Rules are rules!

Disappointing but still easy to drink with a mildly toasty feel.

Holy smokes, I sadly sipped this down last week. So smooth and creamy. I’d buy this again, yo.

Oh, that sounds promising! I was sitting on the fence with this one, but if Fjellrev says it’s worth buying again…

Fjellrev

Ahh, I haven’t even noticed if they brought it back this year. This was actually from last year!

CrowKettle

I think I saw it on the online store at the beginning of the season but now it’s marked as out of stock. Maybe next year!

As always, thank you to Teabento for proving me with a killer awesome sample! I chose all black teas because that’s how I roll, and come on, tea in the shape of a red panda? Sold.

The description of this tea is bang on. It drank half my cup before revisiting the notes since I haven’t read them since initially deciding on my sample requests, and I automatically thought of honeyed fruits with a touch of malt. This has a thicker mouthfeel in comparison to the others I’ve tried so far, which is my jam too. It’s good!

Oh boy, another sample thanks to Teabento. Opening the packet, I was instantly reminded of Dutch processed cocoa powder.

In terms of flavour and texture, it is on the thinner side (seems like all of my samples have been so far), with faint cocoa notes, dried fruit, and honey. Slight astringency but nothing crazy. The new voila, I detect a smoky note? Only on the scale of 2/10 but a surprise, nonetheless.

Another sample thanks to the wonderful Teabento! This has been my tea of choice throughout this cold, dreary day. I feel like I’m getting sick but I don’t think my sense has been affected. With that said, I cannot get any chocolate notes from here. Mostly a touch of honeyed malt and dried fruit. A thinner mouthfeel

Oh weird! On my very last few sips after this cooled way down, I got a whisper of gentle smoke at the end of the sip.

I may be the odd one out but I cannot get the toasted marshmallow flavour from this. This is mostly houjicha, which I love, all roasty and toasty, but on a much milder scale than I like, as well. There is a slight vegetal, soybean-like note from the Shou Mei. Maybe I didn’t add enough leaf? I’ll have to experiment further.

I had the same problem :(

Fjellrev

Aww, I was kind of hoping it was just me and that it was actually flavourful for everyone else.

Thank you so much to Teabento for sending me a gloriously generous parcel full of samples! I am so excited to try these because I can always use good black tea in my life.

Total sucker for Assams so I expected this to be awesome to the tenth power, but this is a lot thinner than I would have imagined. I’m primarily picking up on a bready note, akin to a light rye. Then there’s some soft fruity sweetness in the background.

I personally wouldn’t buy this one but I’m super stoked to try the others!

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA

Just sipped down a 100g tin of this from last Halloween. I’m actually surprised it took me that long to finish it since I’ve burned through this one a lot faster in the past. With that said, still not completely sick of it and I will probably pick up more in the future.

drank Matcha Spirit by Amoda Tea

I am rather relieved to get this one out of the way. Not my cup of tea. Rather bitter from the mushroom and turmeric, so I had to polish it off with honey and coconut milk.
