80 tasting notes

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.

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.
