16 Tasting Notes
My my my its been a long while since I’ve been on here. Still an avid tea drinker, but not so much a social networker……Mmmmm, this is so smooth just as other have described. I put about 6 pearls in my 16oz perfecta maker, but to make things a bit different, I added 1tsp of honeybush vanilla. No german rock sugar like I’m used to but a teaspoon of white honey. This is almost too smooth. But is definitely appreciated on a stressful day as today.
Bought this back in the fall and have loved it so much that I never noted it because I wanted it all to myself (sadly they have discontinued it now, anyone know of a good sub?) I love love love the warm fall scent it brings to my kitchen. Seriously I would love this as a home scent. It’s sweet, warm, creamy and just a bit spicy. I need this in my life!!
The girls at Teavana just know how to sucker me in to something new. I got about 3 oz of this at my last Teavana haul and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked the smell. Oolongs are my favorite tea and this one is sure to remain in my collection as long as it is available. 2.5 tsp/190*F for 3:15. A tsp of rock sugar (all my teas I take with sugar) and it is really soothing my itchy/sore throat this morning. Hint of strawberry, a nice floral rose flavor, and just a hint of champagne. Very beautiful tea.
I had the decaf ginger lemon. I should say that I’m not the biggest fan of greens. Haven’t found my go-to green tea yet, but this isn’t bad. Very light. I can taste the ginger and lemongrass, but just barely. Maybe if I steeped longer but I was afraid it’d go bitter. Would be good blended with a lemongrass tea or with a squirt of lemon juice. Overall not too bad.
