797 Tasting Notes

I made a small pot of this one this morning and used the recommended lower water temperature. This is my second time having this tea and the first time I prepared it with boiling water. I’m still finding it a bit boring and I think I still prefer Townshend’s earl grey creme to this one. Unfortunately, that one isn’t available anymore since Townshend’s closed their doors. This one just needs more of something more vanilla maybe?

From what I remember about this cup it had a really lovely sweet vanilla flavor. I was definitely reminded of vanilla ice cream.

Got a tin of this in the sale and I’m excited to try my first flavored matcha from DT.
The instructions were a bit confusing as it looked like they wanted a LOT of matcha for one cup something like 5-6 spoonfuls for a 16oz mug. I just decided to do a more normal preparation and see how it goes. It’s very watered down tasting so maybe it does need a lot more matcha. That’s a bummer considering the price but I do get a bit of gingerbread flavor and it’s really nice.

I really like this one and considered getting a tin, but decided to try some new flavors instead. I’m not sure it needs quite as much matcha as they recommend, but it is more than you might expect!

I’ll definitely be more generous with the amount next time then.

There’s more sugar than matcha in these so that’s why it calls for such a large amount, ha ha.

I really liked this one when it came out and repurchased a bag when it was retiring. I’ve been saving that bag of this and decided to open it and make a cup. This tea from what I recall was somewhat similar to movie night with that sweet buttery flavor. Unfortunately, it seems like it’s spoiled as it has a weird plastic-like taste or something to it. If only I hadn’t saved it and had drunk it right away…
