374 Tasting Notes
Tried this at a coffee shop when I was visiting my fiance. I thought it was decent green tea. I didn’t notice the matcha in it as much but I like the idea that Republic of Tea had to combine green tea with matcha. I think it would be great for an inexpensive daily tea. I liked that I left the bag in my cup and it didn’t get bitter as green tea can.
I ordered this in the Oolong sampler from Dr. Tea. It has a very pleasant aroma. I am a coffee drinker as well so this intrigued me. When I tried it I couldn’t taste the oolong as much as I could taste the roasted Hojicha and vanilla shavings. It is good but I’m not sure if I would purchase it as a daily tea.
I love this tea! I purchased a bunch of it when it was on sale. The aroma is fantastic and the Tea is even better. It definitely reminds me of sipping a campfire in a good way. I’ve got a couple of friends….including pizzagirl ;) hooked on this and took it with me to family Christmas. I bonded with my father-in-law and his father-in-law over this tea. When my brother-in-law came to tell him something he paused and said “hang on I’m at Cook’s forest right now”. So I also have him hooked too. I have used it in many recipes in cooking including marrinating turkey in it for chili. I can’t wait to compare it to other lapsangs.
I ordered this tea awhile back and it is one of my favorites. It is on of the smoothest Pu-Erhs I have tried. I love how robust and full bodied this tea is. The liquor is very dark and almost looks like coffee. The earthy flavor is unique and tasty! I have found that tea is very good for an upset stomach too or over indulging in alcoholic beverages. I would recomend this tea to anyone. Definitely worth the price.
