22 Tasting Notes
I am very sorry to say that my once absolutely favorite tea is now undrinkable (to me). The last time that I bought this, there were no flavorings. Now, they have added “natural flavorings” that smell and taste awful. Fortunately, DavidsTea’s customer service is amazing and I was able to bring this back to the store and trade for something without flavorings. The Pouchong Ooolong is pretty good.
I received this as a sample – a very delicious tea. The dry tea reminds me of Milk Oolong — tight little buds. The taste and smell of the tea is reminiscent of a roasty big red robe only more complex – some definite floral notes. Very satisfying.
I received this sample from Tea at Sea. I am not generally a green tea drinker. This seems a usual green tea, somewhat vegetal and grassy. I do not detect any fruitiness or seaweed, as the company has described. Just a usual green tea. I do like their oolong very much though.
