127 Tasting Notes
Teasuce gave me a sample of this today. Really great dessert tea. I put a little almond milk in it and enjoyed. Next I will try it iced.
Having another cup of this. Maybe I should just add some matcha and real marshmallows to it.
I have been wanting to try this for some time now. When it first came out back in April I thought “marshmallow in genmaicha?” I could not see it. Then I read the reviews and wanted to try it. I missed the xmas box, so when it was blended last week I jumped at the chance. Of course I did not read the difference in this blend from when it was first blended. No matcha or real marshmallows…..:(
I opened up the bag and it smelled great. I brewed it and the sent from my wabi sabi pot was nutty, which was great since I thought the marshmallow root would over power the brown rice. Then when I drank it I lost the nuttiness and got more vegetal green with vanilla….
Hmm..I might grow to like this, but I wished I would have had the original blend with the matcha and real marshmallows…:(
Just did a cold brew of this. My first…one. The Bergamot comes out more with the cold brew, I enjoyed it :)
About to take a shower and I thought I would have this. Nice and refreshing. This was one of the two teas from the alchemy Blends that I did not buy. The thought of Bergamot with green tea put me off a bit so I decided to go with the Golden Earl instead of this. Well….I like this more then the Golden Earl.
The dry leaf smells like lemon and lavender with the Jingshan’s sweetness in the background. I can not make out much of the bergamot oil. I get more Lemongrass and Lavender with the green, which I LOVE, but I know the bergamot is the whole point of probably calling it “Lavender Earl Green.” Almost a cookie mint smell to the tea when brewed..:)
About to do a second steep…
David was nice and gave me a nice size sample that is enough of another go of this another night. Maybe even make it iced…..
The last of my San Lin Xi Oolong ends with this. It is a nice finish to a great tea. Seeing how a tea can change in the roasting process is a rare thing, from start to finish. Smooth and sweet. Not fruity like I thought it would be. The sweetness carries through nicely. A great tea.
I have been drinking this more lately,and my Steepster pack is very low. I will probably be getting more of this very soon. Going to have to up my rating on this..
I was not really sure about this tea. It is pretty to watch. I almost wanted to do a time lapse video of it. The smell is floral with a jasmine backing to it. It tastes just like jasmine bubble milk tea that I get from one of my favorite tea shop where I went to school. In the past I have not had great experiences with blooming teas, so this was a nice turn around.
I really do like this tea. I was not sure at first when smelling it, but it has a warmness to it. The description to me is right on the money. Although I get more spicy citrus then I do honey citrus. It is very smooth an not a kick in the face black tea. I would love to have this with a dessert. Like an orange chocolaty cake.
The first infusion down and the second to go..
I have never heard of this tea shop, or this tea. When I read the title I thought it would be long golden strands. This is why I love Seepster Select I gives me tea I would have never have thought of.
SO.. this is the next oolong. I decided to wait a bit before posting a tasting note. I had the “lightly” roster by itself and then had the “slightly” and the “lightly” together side by side. This roast is a little nuttier. Having them side by side I would say that this coats your mouth more, but the light roast is very buttery compared to this . I am drinking it by itself now and I getting a little different experience now. I will say that this is a great oolong. I just think I ruined the experience a little with it by not tasting it by itself. I only used a little of the sampler that I bought, and it keeps going and going. For oolong David has the best oolong hands down…:)
