252 tasting notes

When I purchased this back in February the sales associate assured me that the taste would grow on me… 7 months later and I’m still waiting.

First steep: Very strong flavours and scents, it almost bowls me over everytime, is it the figs or the oolong? I sip it slowly, but the flavours just do not jive in my mouth… there’s no smoothness or creaminess. It’s just strong and brash.

Second steep: A little better than the first, mostly due to the fig flavour weakening. Still having a hard time getting “lost” in the cup. Kabusecha, Milk Oolong, Rooibos, all eventually grew on me, but this… this one just leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth everytime. Sigh.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
