1629 tasting notes

My boyfriend got this tea for me while he was on a trip in the States – he knows how much I love mangos. It’s an interesting-looking tea – a mix of dark and green oolongs mixed with what looks like white rose petals and mini crysanthemum flower heads. The blossoms give the tea a bit of a floral flavour that makes an interesting combination with the baked and fruity notes of the dark oolong in the blend. The mango flavour isn’t really all that mango-y unfortunately – it’s sort of a generic tropical fruit flavour that probably comes from an artifical source of some sort.

Altogether, it’s interesting but not rave-worthy, I suppose. Though it does make a nice enough low-caffeine tea for sipping in the evening while I study.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
