62 Tasting Notes
Lemony and a nice touch of bergamot. Not overpowering on the flavoring can still taste some of the tea. If you feel like drinking an Earl Grey tea, you can’t go wrong with this tea.
Smells of black currants and vanilla. Has a sweet and fruity taste. I get the flavors of lemon, vanilla, black currants, and a little bit of bergamot oil. They jammed a lot of flavors into this tea, reminds me of Harney’s Paris tea without the caramel flavor.
Light to medium Oolong with a yellowish orange color and sweet floral aroma. This tea is light but the flavors come through strongly. The flavors are nice with a sweet floral taste mixed with oranges and white peaches. It is an interesting tea but it is a little fruity for my liking, I am glad I tried it through.
Piney smokey aroma like a dying camp fire. Taste smokey and sweet with a little bit of pine flavor. The smokiness is not overpowering and it does not drown out all the other flavors, which I find happens in most Lapsang Souchong teas that I have tried. It is definitely the best Lapsang Souchong that I have tasted, but I have not drank too many and I do not seek them out.
Dark brown almost black in color with a woodsy earthy aroma. The tea tastes of wood and earth, which are flavors I enjoy in a Pu-erh tea. It is not really sweet at all and is quite light and smooth. The aftertaste is nice and mute. Good stuff.
Yellowish green in color with a nice sweet aroma. This tea has a sweet taste with a slight bit of smokiness. I get the flavors of roasted asparagus and carrots.
Light with a little bit of buttery sweetness. Has a vegetal taste of steamed spinach. Not too much character in this tea but it is not without its charms.
Light to medium Oolong with a greenish orange color and an aroma of licorice and herbal medicine. This tea has a sugary sweetness that hits you right away and lingers like I just ate a piece of candy. It taste like a green tea with sugar added to it. I like my tea unsweetened so the sweetness is a little too much for me. Other than that, it has a pleasant taste. The dry tea is interesting in that it is hard and has something similar to a candy coating, probable from the process of adding the ginseng to the tea.
Light amber in color with a nice woodsy aroma. It has the taste of hay and wood mixed with a the flavors of dried apricot and maybe a little bit of plum. Slightly astringent aftertaste.
The aroma is that of sweet hay. This tea is light and sweet. It has a pronounced melon flavor with hints of hay and cucumber.
