2286 Tasting Notes
Because of the apple in here, I’m risking angry guts by drinking this tea… I had to though, as a friend got it for me and it’s not a true allergy that I have to apple.
It’s seeet and tart, and I’d never guess it was rhubarb specifically. Just generic hibiscus-berry flavour. Fun to have a little bit of, and I’m glad she only got me about 30g of this one.
I’ll probably cold brew a batch as well, some day in the future.
I haven’t had this one in a long while, but one of my friends came through town and spent a couple days before visiting her parents (the first big drive I had in my NEW CAR (actually my first car)) in the Okanagan. She got me this tea and a hedgehog mug.
The mug is cute, but in true DT fashion the print is already peeling. I only hand wash, so that’s still a disappointing quality issue.
This tea is so so so sweet. Lol. Not surprising. Sweet candy mango melon taste, with some woodiness from the rooibos. Not bad, and something I’ll enjoy finishing, but not something I’d go out of my way to get.
Hope everyone is doing well. I logged in again as my random password had a security issue and I had to change it. So if you haven’t changed your password you might want to…
This is good, but definitely not a daily drinker for me. I would buy again, but only in small amounts as a fun treat. It’s toasty, mineraly, spicy.
I’ll probably only have a couple steps of this. Here’s hoping it’s not an oolong that triggers my gut issues!
Edit: this was an oolong that triggered my gut issues. I expect a few more like this as I have several oblongs in my tasting basket.
Mmm… I was going to have another coffee this morning, then decided to have a tea latte instead.
Brewed in milk and water, with a touch of vanilla sugar to sweeten.
This particular tin is old, and so the black base is not as good as I remember it being. But the spice balance for this tea is delicious. Hopefully it’ll help wake me up on this sunny yet chilly day!
I don’t know when I got this. One of the times I visited my friend in Chicago, I guess? It smells strongly of rice, it’s so cool. The tea is quite tannic, but I think that’s my fault – I got distracted because I’m in zoom class, and I was paying attention to my instructor…
I do like this. Will it or something like it be a standard puerh in my cupboard? Hmm, probably not. I don’t think this would be an “every day” tea for me. But if I come across places that sell sticky rice puerh, I’d consider picking up a tuocha or two for future enjoyment.
