43 Tasting Notes
Leaves: tiny copped leaves
Aroma: not good
Color: Coppery orange
Taste: The first time I brewed this tea i wasn’t fond of the aroma it didn’t smell good like the other teas I had. Surprising upon brewing for a total of 5 minutes the flavor wasn’t as bad as i thought it might have been due to the scent.
Leaves: medium length fuzzy leaves
Color: pale almost clear
Taste: I’ve had to experiment and test this tea out a couple of times first. The first time I use 2T as recommend for a 8oz cup and it came out way to strong & it didn’t taste good. The second time I got it right, it had a very nice floral aroma specifically that of a Honeysuckle. The color was pale almost clear. The taste was pleasant and light, a good finisher for a lemon cupcake i had just demolished instead of paring it with the usual glass of milk. Overall a very nice tea with a lingering aroma.
Leaves: tiny medium green circles
Color: yellowish green
Taste: This tea was the first Oolong I’ve had in a while since I haven’t been making tea as often. What I found surprising upon opening the package was the non floral aroma that most Oolongs carry. This time it was more of a grassy aroma that you find with green tea. I went on to brewing next, I checked the instructions and i noticed that I was supposed to use 1 tablespoon of tea, which is more than what I normally use of 1 tsp per cup. So I gave them a fifteen second rinse then continued brew for 1 minute. The flavor was very light almost bland but as it sat for a few minutes I noticed that the flavors intensified it was a bit bolder now. Overall a very nice Oolong if you looking for something non-floral and on the lighter end.
Leaves: mixture of various fruits
Color: Deep Red
Taste: After not brewing tea for quite sometime i decided to give this one a try. It had a fairly tart aroma. As for the taste i didn’t notice anything special,it was just tart
Leaves: mixture of various leaves + coconut
Aroma: coconut & caramel
Color: golden yellow
Taste: I decided after eating my bowl of ramen i wanted to drink so tea & this was my go to, since i haven’t tried it yet. As i opened the package i notice a coconut & caramel aroma. This time around i wanted to try something different (i wanted a bit more tea than the usual 8oz) so i use 16oz of water & allowed my tea to steep. The tea was a golden yellow that i noticed to be a bit more flavored than the other two teas I’ve previously tried. Although I’m not a huge fan of coconut in general this tea wasn’t so bad.
Leaves: ginger, ginseng, chamomile mixture of other ingredients
Aroma: Chamomile & Citrus
Color: Dark Yellow
Taste: This tea at first I found it bland, but with a few more sips the flavor began to come through. I noticed more of the Chamomile & hint of Citrus favor more so than the ginger & ginseng despite that being the name of the tea.
Leaves: Mixture of green tea & various ingredients
Color: light yellow
Taste: First I want to say i was very excited to receive this in the mail today! Along with it my other samples Persimmon Tree Tea. Upon opening the package the scent was amazing! It reminded me of the soft chewy caramel candy. That made me even more excited to brew it. The first steep I think I might have let my water cool too much although the aroma was there I didn’t get much flavor. Moving to the second steep this time I left my water a bit hotter than before adding an additional minute to the steep time. The result was the same as the first still lacking. On the last steep at three minutes. Overall I can say this was an okay tea good for if your looking for something light with amazing aroma.
*Thank you Persimmon Tree Tea for this sample
This tea was quite different from the other fruit teas I’ve tried. Upon opening the package the aroma is quite tropical. I went to brewing for 8 minutes, the color was a deep red like the other teas but the difference is the taste was much lighter and less tart in comparison to the blueberry fruit tea.
The first thing that I noticed when I opened up the package was the rose aroma. As i measured my tea i got full roses which was quite exciting to see. So i went to brewing the first time it was too light in taste & the aroma of roses was a bit much. The other time around i had it brew too strong & came out bitter. Maybe i should give this tea another test but from this time i didn’t enjoy it.
