106 Tasting Notes
I have it mixed with English Evening today. It steeped so quickly that I pulled it out as soon as I was done pouring. It steeped to a lovely dark amber with just a bite of bitterness. The jasmine and bergamot give it the nice smoothness I love so much. I am not noticing a major differance with the English Evening in it. The leaves were not as broken so I am guessing they needed a longer steep time to add to the taste.
The sweetness is overwhelming even without sugar. I like the sugar because it masks the bitter aftertaste and keeps that sweet taste until the next sip. When the pot was brought in the beautiful summer day came back again. This tea is calming for me and I will buy it again.
I am still not fond of most tea bags. I have had this one in loose leaf and bags and it is excelent both ways. The apricot scent is so strong it wisks me away to my childhood running around in the country on a beautiful summer day.
I don’t like mint tea. We keep it in the house for the boy.
Absolutly yummy blended with other teas. It mellows almost any tea.
The boy liked this one. I spit it out it was so bad. There is something that reminded me of a hospital and I can’t put my finger on it.
sweet smell. A wonderful hint of strawberries. Balanced blend not typical green tea with not overpowering.
This is what I had hoped for with the strawberry oolong.
Rich blackberry scent. Tart and tangy fruit taste. Wonderful fruit pie feel. It is even beautiful to look at with it’s pinky red glow.
The boy says it’s like a rich tart fruit bowl.
Smells lemony and fresh. MMMM soothing, warming with a hint of bitter. All the things I love about earl grey with a hint of tang.
The smell is mild, not exactly peachy but not bad. Holding it in my mouth I can taste the peach but sipping it doesn’t bring any fruit thoughts to me. I like it enough but I won’t ask to buy it again.
It does have a lemon tang to it.
