95 Tasting Notes
I usually don’t like Japanese greens—too seaweedy for me unless it’s a flavored Sencha. This is lovely. Dry leaf has a sweet grass smell, wet leaf gets wonderfully nutty. It tastes sort of like a roasty Longjing but with a subtle seaweed taste. Not fishy by any means.
I love this tea! It has a great chocolate smell and taste to me. Always have my black teas with a dash of soy creamer (going to try almond creamer soon), and it makes this tea even more scrumptious. Have already re-bought but forgot to save my tin! Aggh.
Two heaping teaspoons per 16oz Contigo travel tumbler.
Backlogging—This has a really strong cherry smell as dry leaf, but the taste isn’t overpowering. A bit sweet, not as chocolatey as the other chocolate flavored blacks so I didn’t re-buy, but was pleasant. Not out of the question for a future reorder.
Got this on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised. I was a bit leery since I don’t like overly floral teas, but for me this was floral scent-wise but not overpowering in taste.
I get a bit of flowers, the almond, and the coconut in a sip. Not really tasting the pineapple; I get more of a lemony taste.
My absolute favorite white teas is still Cantaloupe & Cream, but this is a nice change of pace.
Backlogging from last night. Wow, this is sweet! Has a very strong sugary/mapley smell. The taste is pretty close to the description: vanilla icing and sugar. Substituted this instead of some sorbet for dessert last night and it definitely quelled the sweet craving.
2 teaspoons and a little vanilla half and half.
Backlog from yesterday: the smell is spot on for this and the taste is pretty close too. Has a wonderful caramel scent mixed with a slightly buttery popcorn taste. I don’t think I’d try this one cold and I prefer hot matcha lattes anyway.
Royal grade matcha, distinctive flavoring. 2 chasaku scoops to 8oz light vanilla soy milk.
