1104 tasting notes

For some reason when I hit their website, it offers me install of Wordpress. So I instead used the tea bag picture. Unfortunately no more info, or at least selling lines of it.

It is green tea with light flavours as peach, raspberry nad jasmine. I was afraid it will dominate the flavours, but it was actually very different.

We had family gathering a bit, so we were all sitting in my grandma’ living room ’(9 adults, 2 children <1 year old) But I was happy to see everybody. Maybe this is actually the number I am able to survive.

Anyway, to the tea. As grandma does not have temperature controlled kettle (not even I, but I know on stove-top one, what is the temperature); I just thought that when bubbles start to appear, it will be around 80°C, but I am not of course sure. So, not adding it to tasting note. Brew was very light, it doesn’t want to brew at all, but managed to keep it in for those 2-3 minutes, but I thought it will be quite light. And it was, but I noticed floral notes – jasmine as well rose, then some fruits, but rather apples than peach or raspberry. That was bit sad to be honest, as I hoped for fresh and juicy raspberry. Maybe it just need longer steeping time. The tea itself wasn’t much present as well, and if it was, it was rather hay like, certainly it doesn’t felt like a fresh green tea. I need to buy some greens, as almost all of them are actually some blends, or just not so fresh as I would like to drink.

Flavors: Floral, Hay, Jasmine, Rose

Thank you ashmanra. Actually, I have only this grandma left. I never met her husband (and my grandpa) as they get divorced quite fast and she never wanted another man in her household. He lived in the same town, so maybe I actually met him – but we don’t knew about each other. He died few years ago. And from fathers side, I miss those grandparents so much :/

I know it must have meant so much to her that you visited! I am glad you have each other. :)

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
