9 Tasting Notes
The scent is quite vegetal and somewhat savory. Though it was not refreshing, nor did it taste like ginger, I actually didn’t mind this tea. It has a nice roasted taste with slight vegetal notes and a hint of greenness. It has a somewhat full mouth feel with a slight astringency to it. Though I probably wouldn’t purchase the tea again, I found it acceptable and would drink it again.
Flavors: Green, Roasted, Vegetable Broth, Vegetal
The scent reminds me of roasted nuts with a woody and floral hint to it. The first thing I noticed about this tea was it’s creamy mouthfeel. The flavour is strong and almost reminds me of an oolong with a really nice roasted, buttery taste to it. I have to say this is one of my favorite teas I have tried thusfar and would really recommend it. Not only is it delicious, it is also on the cheaper side which is always a plus
Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Roasted Nuts, Wood
The tea had a delicious, sweet, candy-like, strawberry scent. When I took my first sip I was greeted with an unpleasant surprise as it tasted quite vegetal and green with a slight bitterness. The aftertaste was almost chemical-like and unpleasant. Definitely not what I was expecting from the scent. After adding sugar, the tea was much better and a somewhat fruity flavour emerged, but to me the tea still tastes odd, and not very good.
Flavors: Bitter, Fruity, Green, Strawberry, Sweet, Vegetal
When I first tasted this tea it was extremely tart and a bit bitter, with a horrible after taste. I prepared it like I normally prepare green tea and steeped it at 80 Celcius for 3 minutes. I had to add sugar to try and tone down the sourness of it as it was quite overpowering. Once sweetened it was actually quite nice. Though there was still a bit of sourness to it, it had a really nice floral taste which made up for it! Will have to try it again at either a lower temperature or shorter steeping time.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Roasted, Sour
The slightly floral scent is quite inviting and the tea has a complex and subtle flavour. Tastes somewhat green with a hint of roasted nuts. Leaves your mouth feeling somewhat dry, but not in a bad way. Though not my favorite Oolong from Tea Sante, I quite enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
Flavors: Floral, Green, Roasted Nuts
Delicious orange flavour that almost seems a bit creamy. It has a hint of natural sweetness to it and the overal flavour is somewhat delicate. It tastes quite good on it’s own, but is real good steeped with a small piece of split vanilla bean. Would definitely recommend this tea.
Flavors: Blood Orange, Sweet
Tastes quite herbaceous with notes of Thyme. There is a little bit of natural, fruity, sweetness to it, but that seems to get over powered by the notes of thyme. It doesn’t taste bad, just not what I was expecting from looking at the ingredients.
Flavors: Fruity, Herbaceous, Sweet, Thyme
Delicious and refreshing tea with a lot of character. It has a deep fuchsia colour with notes of blueberry, raspberry, and just a hint of citrus. The tea has a bit of tartness to it, though it is not as intense as a straight Hibiscus tea, so I found I didn’t need to add sugar. Wonderful tea and I would definitely purchase it again
Flavors: Blueberry, Citrus, Hibiscus, Raspberry, Tart
Flavourful tea that reminds me of an Oolong. It has a slightly astringent mouthfeel with subtle notes of roasted nuts. Not what I would have expected from a white tea, but I did enjoy it. I would drink it again but it isn’t something I would go out of my way for.
