221 Tasting Notes
Dry Leaf Nose: Creamy with an earthy note followed by a fresh fruity aroma that gives this blend a very balanced nose.
Liquor: Golden and opaque.
Flavour: Sweet, creamy, slightly fruity and underpinned by an earthy shou pu’erh. The liquor is well balanced and quite sweet, full bodied. The creamy note and the fruit dominate but the earthy pu’erh still shines through.
Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet vanilla and fine oolong tea.
Liquor: Medium green and clear with a fresh oolong/vanilla nose.
Flavour: Interesting mix of a fresh, almost piney oolong and sweet vanilla. The oolong tea tempers the vanilla allowing it to remain sweet, recognizable and refreshing.
Dry Leaf Nose: Chamomile takes the lead with lemon notes playing in the background.
Liquor: Yellow-pink with aromas of chamomile and lemon.
Flavour: Chamomile, lemon and fennel combine to make this complex blend round and satisfying. The cup is naturally sweet due to the licorice and has a nice citrus finish.
Dry Leaf Nose: Kiwi takes the lead note while the apple sweetens the nose – the tea is apparent but sits in the background.
Liquor: Green-gold liquor, clear and aromatic with fruit above the green tea.
Flavour: Kiwi notes are prominent with the citrus note supporting and adding a bit of liveliness to the mouthfeel. The apple pieces sweeten the liquor whlie the green tea notes add a soothing and classic roundness to the blend.
Dry Leaf Nose: Refreshing. Chlorophyl & tea leaves with some buttery notes.
Liquor: Clear and light green liquor with a nice vegetal aroma.
Flavour: This tea has a very distinct grassy character with a slightly salty note that’s reminiscent of ocean air. The overall impression is one of fresh grass and sea air.
Dry Leaf Nose: Minty with cardomom and spice.
Liquor: Medium brown/medium greens, with a minty, spicy, and cardomom nose.
Flavour: Complex and sweet – a very special African Mint tea, as it incprporates more than just the usual mint and tea. The cardamom, ginger, peppercorns and mints play well together and the hojicha is an excellent and unusual base for such a tea.
Dry Leaf Nose: Chocolate coconut mocha.
Liquor: Medium golden clear with a definite chocolate coconut aroma and hints of mocha.
Flavour: A sweet chocolate-coconut flavour with a mocha background, brought to us through a combination of white Bai Mudan tea and open China black tea, plus the coconut. The effect is a rich and satisfying cup.
