74 Tasting Notes
I am excited to be the first to review this new tea. I hope I can do it justice. First of all, the tea smells really fruity and has some large pieces of fruit in it. After one whiff, my daughter proclaimed: “I want to try that one Mom” and she doesn’t want to try new things very often. When she tried it, she said it was yummy and asked if I would make an iced pitcher of it just for her. To me, it tastes like a juicy mouthful of plums and peaches that is well supported by the white tea base.
The flavors in this tea really blend well together. If I focus, I can pick out the individual elements: strawberry, pineapple and marshmallow root. However, they blend into a new flavor all together: a fruity candy-like taste that isn’t overpowering. Could it be what a pineberry tastes like? Dunno. But it tastes like a dessert treat that I definately want to drink again! Yum!
First off, I’m surprised to see this is an oolong because I do not taste it. It tastes like a tisane. When I first brewed it and itwas still very hot, the rose flavor was very strong. It made me think of drinking the water from a vase of roses. As it has cooled some, the stawberry and fruit is becoming more prominent which is making it more drinkable to me. Not one I will drink on its own again, but might be good blended with the peach tranquility tea.
A workhorse CTC loose tea with good malty body. Wakes me up and gets me going for busy day: Science Olympiad, gymnastics, being on call and usual demands for my parental attention every 2 minutes. Helps she shake off my sleepiness from staying up too late watching the news. I’m so relieved that my mother and friends are done with the Boston lockdown and that the city can focus on healing.
This includes a packet of chai spice tea and a packet of black tea base (Laoshan Black and Shui Jin Gui) along with instructions for cooking up the chai. The chai is heavy on the cardamom flavors with not much clove. The base gives it a prominent chocolate and caramel flavor which is different than a usual chai tea. I liked it, but missed the spicy bite of the clove.
