96 Tasting Notes
It smells like perfume, but in a good way!
There is something very delicate about this tea. It reminds me of David’s Orchid Oolong in the way that, once again, you can taste the flowers but they aren’t overpowering. I’m not a big fan of green tea, as I’ve said on more than one of these reviews, but I’m beginning to think that I’m just not a fan of BAD green tea, because this is just smooth and delicious.
It tastes like it was made with love.
This tea smelled like discount, vanilla scented shampoo and tasted a bit like sweetened bathwater. I was really disappointed and completely unimpressed. It was stale and had a very weak flavour, even though I let the tea bag sit in the water the entire time.
I thought it was all right, but right after I finished it I had a cup of Twining’s Earl Grey and it reminded me what tea bags were supposed to taste like.
Now, I don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea, but I want to be honest when I say that I don’t really know much about green tea because I don’t really like it that much. I keep trying, but I always end up leaving half my cup filled and abandoned with whatever green tea blend I try.
But that changed tonight.
I tried some Taffy Terror with a little bit of organic sugar and was completely floored! All I can taste is the taffy. Honestly, it’s almost creamy! Not a flavour I would expect from a green tea at all.
If you’re a green-tea-skeptic like me I would really recommend this!
