14 Tasting Notes

Brews a kind of peachy-orange color. Tastes of light earth/fresh wood that grows upon further steepings only to gently fade out. There is a smooth rock sugar overtone that makes the tea very pleasant. Some grape on the tip of my tongue. A mild but unique Shu.
Picked up a couple of free samples at the SF international tea festival. Sweet and floral. Light malty taste. I get a little tired of this one after a few of cups but it is a good change of pace. There is a great smell to both the raw leaves and steeped tea.
Clean, buttery, and refreshing. Slightly nutty finish. A little overpriced, but tasty nun the less.
Smoke and spice. Mostly smoke.
Just deleted my initial review. I was unimpressed when I first bought this, however I quickly realized my stash disappearing at a much faster rate then other teas i supposedly liked better. This stuff is great. Smooth, rich, creamy, balanced, soothing yet energizing.
Pours dark carmel in color, and smells of earth and spice (pepper). Tastes like one would expect, malty earth with a small pepper kick. No smoke and a weak (almost non existent) chocolate finish. Underwelming.
Pours a yellow green and has a grassy mint aroma to it. It tastes like it smells. It’s crisp yet mellow and offers a moist grassy taste with subtle mint flavor that becomes apparent as the tea cools. I found some nuttiness in early infusions. Mouth feel is just okay. Very serviceable for everyday drinking, and for what it is it’s quiet good. Steeps quick and is good for several infusions.
Very smooth and balanced for an Earl grey. Initial taste is the mild black tea base with a slight orange citrus bite, but finishes creamy (almost milky). As has been stated before, you won’t be hit over the head with flavor. However, there is enough going on (and in such great proportion) that you’ll stay interested. Defiantly a relaxing cup.
Pours dark amber. A malty/earthy taste with mild sweetness that finishes with chocolate undertones. Nice. Been drinking this stuff for a little while, the stronger the better. I’ve found the best temp to drink this at is about 132F, perfect balance of flavor. Too hot and its watery, too cool and the flavors get muddled together (nasty).
Brews bright green and produces a straightforward, uncomplicated, strong grassy flavor. Very mild sweetness with multiple infusions. Mouth feel is full/well rounded. Its easy to over do it with this one (in both steep time and consumption), but at $6.50 for 50g (1.75oz) it’s worth a look. It’ll last you
