95 Tasting Notes
Smells of the holidays: cloves, cinnamon, and oranges. It has a light taste compared to its strong aroma with the same flavors as its aroma. There is also a little nuttiness to this tea. I have had some other holiday teas that I would prefer at the holidays, but I can drink this tea year round (where I could not do that with some of the others).
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.
