377 Tasting Notes
This tea was my first in buying loose leaf tea. I saw it in the grocery store….I had a tea strainer I got as a gift but had never used. It’s a great option for gunpowder teas. It’s got that light smokiness that you would expect from a gunpowder and at a great price too and you can find it almost anywhere.
This was my first experience with Pu-Erh. I got it not really knowing all that much about Pu-Erh. I like this blend I think the Pu-Erh flavor is a little weak and you don’t get that lovely earthy flavor as much. It is more fruity which if you are someone who hasn’t had Pu-Erh this is a great introduction. I would buy again.
I just finished my first can of this. I must say this is the best high quality matcha that I have had so far. I started off my matcha journey when I worked at Starbucks. I do love their matcha eventhough it’s highly sweetened. I do not have a matcha whisk but this mixes well with a mini steel whisk(egg beater). I will say the aroma at first was a little plastic like from the bag it came in, but the color is a nice pale green and tea is incredibly smooth. I got it on sale but it’s one of the more affordable matchas I have seen. I drank the last of my can this morning because I’ve been filling in on the morning show at the radio station and feeling great :)
Tried this at a coffee shop when I was visiting my fiance. I thought it was decent green tea. I didn’t notice the matcha in it as much but I like the idea that Republic of Tea had to combine green tea with matcha. I think it would be great for an inexpensive daily tea. I liked that I left the bag in my cup and it didn’t get bitter as green tea can.
I ordered this in the Oolong sampler from Dr. Tea. It has a very pleasant aroma. I am a coffee drinker as well so this intrigued me. When I tried it I couldn’t taste the oolong as much as I could taste the roasted Hojicha and vanilla shavings. It is good but I’m not sure if I would purchase it as a daily tea.
I love this tea! I purchased a bunch of it when it was on sale. The aroma is fantastic and the Tea is even better. It definitely reminds me of sipping a campfire in a good way. I’ve got a couple of friends….including pizzagirl ;) hooked on this and took it with me to family Christmas. I bonded with my father-in-law and his father-in-law over this tea. When my brother-in-law came to tell him something he paused and said “hang on I’m at Cook’s forest right now”. So I also have him hooked too. I have used it in many recipes in cooking including marrinating turkey in it for chili. I can’t wait to compare it to other lapsangs.
I ordered this tea awhile back and it is one of my favorites. It is on of the smoothest Pu-Erhs I have tried. I love how robust and full bodied this tea is. The liquor is very dark and almost looks like coffee. The earthy flavor is unique and tasty! I have found that tea is very good for an upset stomach too or over indulging in alcoholic beverages. I would recomend this tea to anyone. Definitely worth the price.
