Another new Dessert by Deb!

I enjoyed this one – really nice lychee scent in the bag, and tasty when brewed up as well. I can’t remember specifics anymore but I think it’s one of my faves from the Japanese & Asian Patisserie collection.

I need to try this one again, I remember being underwhelmed despite the flavor combination sounding so good.

Sipdown! (8 | 376)

Cold brewed, as always! I also tried this one hot, but didn’t write a note for it.

I was really excited for this tea, as I love lychee and jasmine and mango things, and I also love mochi. But I’m finding it just okay, unfortunately. The lychee is the strongest flavor for me and it reminds me of lychee gummies, which I love. But the jasmine is a bit perfumey, and I feel like the combination with the lychee (which is also somewhat floral) is just too much for me. I adore jasmine, even strong jasmine, but this tastes more like perfume than actual fresh jasmine. I get some mango as well I think, though it somewhat blends into the lychee.

Anyway, I’m very glad to have tried it and it’s not bad or anything, just a bit underwhelming for me. I seem to have that reaction to a lot of Deb’s teas, and yet I still feel compelled to try all the things! ;)

Yeah I keep almost making orders because the flavors all sound so good, but the reviews I see rarely seem to match up!

There are a few from her that I really like, but most I’m fairly ambivalent about.

Sipped on this one Friday evening while working on outlines for season two of Geek Steep! We started recording today for S2, and I’m just so excited to be getting back into it! I was also excited to try this tea – I’m trying to think about if I’ve seen another mochi inspired tea blend before and I don’t think so!? Mochi is one of those things that I really want to like because they always have such fun and innovative flavours and they usually look quite cute – but fuck me do I struggle with the texture. I saw somewhere that someone described the sensation of biting mochi as reminding them of the feeling of biting a nut sack, and I have literally never been able to disassociate from that comparison…

Thankfully mochi inspired tea seems much more up my alley – this is really nice! I’ve been very impressed with Deb’s newest collection so far. It feels like she just had a lot of fun with these profiles, and it translates into the cup! This is a good medley of lychee, with its juicy floral notes, and more of a candy or “Japanese” style mango. Pretty low acidity/tang and more focused on the sweetness of ripe mangoes. Despite both fruit notes being pretty juicy, it’s not an overly rich or cloying blend – and the sweetness is balanced out by both some creamy coconut rasps as well as the more vegetal and grassy notes of the green tea. I actually found that, with this blend, I didn’t mind being able to taste the green tea at all – it was pretty complimentary to everything else going on.

Lololol I’ve never heard that mocha comparison, but it makes me laughhhh.

I love mochi! Oddly enough, I’m a big “problem texture” person, and the mochi itself doesn’t bother me, but the fillings that are often inside them — the gooey/mushy red bean paste or “jammy” stuff — does set off my gag reflex. I can do plain mochi with nothing on the inside, or mochi that has chocolate, peanut butter, or ice cream in the middle, but can’t do the more traditional “daifuku” stuff.

Ah, yeah – it’s the outside texture for me. Not sure why it trips me up since I usually don’t have a problem with gummier textures – it’s slimy stuff that really fucks with me. I’ve found some frozen mochi though that works because the outside is firmer.
