7 Tasting Notes
The liquor is a warm, golden yellow. The aroma is much more vegetative than I expected, but then finished with a fruity sweetness. The flavour is much the same. The green tea vegetative taste is aggressively apparent at first sip, but gives way to the fruit flavour that lingers in your mouth. The kiwi and the apple together are very complimentary. The body is slightly creamy/heavy.
The aroma was familiar immediately but it took awhile to place it. Then it came to me. The Herb flavoured Ricola cough drops. I was surprised at how pink the liquor was though. I guess that is probably the rose hips. The flavour was strange, but pleasant and calming. I found the mint, lemon, and herb flavours all very strong separately, but the mixture is interesting. Definitely cough drop reminiscent.
Aroma is really familiar, but I can’t exactly place it. It mainly reminds me of Japan and the dried seaweed paper things. The tea leaves really do look like moss-covered pebbles, but look like seaweed in the steeper. The liquor is a really intense greeny yellow color. Remind me of the slougoon. First thought on taste: So weird. Starts out super vegetative, but transitions into a sweet, almost fruity, aftertaste.
The aroma was faint but had a very sweet fruity smell with a hint of a burnt sugar as well. The body was about medium, quite light but left some feeling on your tongue. The fruit notes in the tea were shockingly faint, giving way to what I’m assuming is bamboo because I couldn’t quite place it. It also gives way to a sort of creamy, milky taste and texture.
I was surprised by the very mild aroma of this tea. I expected. The smell of mango to be more prevalent. Really the only specific scent I did pick up was peach, which oddly is not listed on the ingredients. The liquor is a darkish yellow with a green tint to it. Not a lot of richness present in this look of the tea. The favour and body are both extremely mild. The fruit flavour was mostly an aftertaste. No one flavour becomes apparent above the rest. It’s a very smooth blend. Vaguely floral after a few sips. Not as bitter as the more traditional green teas, but it gets more apparent towards the end of the pot.
