9 Tasting Notes
Delicious! Very fruity, mellow tea. The liquor is very light, and the leaves are beautiful once they unfold to their full size. Definitely a new favorite oolong for me.
Just what the doctor ordered! Refreshing mint with a nice, aromatic green tea. Crisp, but still calming. Definitely great in the evening with honey. Will be purchasing this tea again.
I wanted a lemony tisane because my allergies have been terrible lately. I was hoping for a nice, subtle lemon flavor with a little bit of local honey added, and viola: a drink to soothe my sinuses. Instead, the flavor is so subtle that my plugged-up-nose just interprets it as cooked grass, honey added.
Normally, this is my favorite morning tea, but something is off with my taste buds today, because it’s just not hitting the spot. I hope I’m not getting sick.
Not crazy about this. The vanilla was much too strong for the subtle flavor of an oolong. I don’t think it is a good match. The vanilla also had a very artificial smell to it.
Very smoky, but the scent mellowed as the tea cooled slightly. I enjoyed the sensory freak-out, but after this cup I developed a killer headache. Not sure what happened there. I’d like to use this in more unorthodox ways, such as marinades.
Really wasn’t crazy about this one until I made iced tea with it. I think that is the best application for me, personally. Made this with the cold brew technique. I don’t even have to sweeten it.
Very aromatic tea—-sort of a soapy, pleasant jasmine scent in the cup—-with a light amber liquor. It is nice for an evening cup. It’s also quite fun to watch the leaves unfurl as they steep, so I recommend a clear vessel.
While it isn’t something I would drink in place of my usual earl grey, I certainly appreciate the unique take on an old favorite. Loving the citrus, especially, which is a taste I sometimes crave in teas.
