182 Tasting Notes
Dry Leaf Nose: Oolong tea underpins a prevalent vanilla aroma. The orchid is very much in the background.
Liquor: Light green liquor with a sweet vanilla aroma, and hints of orchid in the background.
Flavour: Quality jade oolong flavour shows a bit of carefully controlled oxidation and many rollings that have exposed much of the precious tea oil to the water. The orchid character has been drawn from the leaf and is in balance with the vanilla.
Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet notes of banana and chocolate.
Liquor: Brown liquor with a sweet and a ripe banana-chocolate nose.
Flavour: Amazing banana cream pie flavour – the chocolate is rich and appealing, while the banana has the ripe taste of those used to sweeten pies and confections. There’s even a hint of that rum-like character you’ll find in ripe banana.
Dry Leaf Nose: Very chocolatey, with tea notes and a hint of chili pepper.
Liquor: Toasty brown colour, with a rich chocolate note and chili background.
Flavour: A rich chocolate flavour with touch of chili that enriches the chocolate and leaves a lingering flavour on the palate. The black tea base adds a sweet, ripe and full bodied note to the cup.
Dry Leaf Nose: Spicy with a slight coffee note.
Liquor: Light brown and clear.
Flavour: A nice black tea base, supported by subtle coffee notes. This is a lovely and subtle chai/spice blend. Cardamom is especially noted in the tea when steeped for longer periods.
Dry Leaf Nose: A dark and toasty aroma of roasted rice and roasted tea.
Liquor: Rich pure brown, clear to semi opaque liquor with a dark and toasty aroma.
Flavour: Prevailing notes of toasty rice and grain note. The roasted green tea brings some natural and welcomed bitter notes, while the rice adds a sweet finish that rounds the cup.
Dry Leaf Nose: Rich, fresh and refreshing. Classic honey black tea notes with a hint of ripe fruits.
Liquor: An appealing scotch colour, very clear and aromatic with ripe fruit notes and a garden fresh tea aroma of caramel and honey.
Flavour: The overriding notes are delicate yet rich, with a prominent flavour of caramel and freshly manufactured tea leaves – it’s rich, sweet and laden with hints of a delicate medium coloured honey and ripe fruit.
Dry Leaf Nose: Strong notes of jasmine, underpinned with the rich aroma of a classic China black Hunnan type tea.
Liquor: Golden brown and clear – so clear and visually crisp that it almost glows!
Flavour: Jasmine and Hunnan type black tea notes are beautifully balanced in this blend. The jasmine hits the palate nose first, gentle with only the most appealing and sweet, floral jasmine character. Immediately following are rich caramel notes of fine black, very oxidized tea. A delicate wild honey note rises in the background with a hint of sweet garden soil in the finish.The overall has a delightfully refreshing and palate cleansing character that lingers well without overpowering the palate.
