6 Tasting Notes

My first Honeybush. Not bad. Very smooth and sweet, the vanilla very complimentary and not too sweet. Perfect for my bedtime herbal.

I’d certainly rate this better than the quick-fix Genmai tea bags I get at the Lotte, but the “green” part is not terribly fresh. On the other hand, the roasted flavor from the rice is very nice.

The roasted flavor really stands out in this Oolong. I’m generally not a huge fan of coffee flavor, but the coconut balances out the flavors nicely. I’ve had great luck with the Steepster Selects so far. Can’t wait to try my next one!

Unsruprisingly overpriced by Teavanna, it’s not as… “oolong” as I would like. While I enjoy strong teas, this one surprised me with how smooth it was not. It’s a good tea, but it’s not the best oolong I’ve had.
It is pretty great iced.

It was on my last cup that I’d discovered I hadn’t added a tasting note for this.
While this is not my first Jasmine loose leaf, it is the first one I have owned. I love the floral sweetness and the smoothness of this tea. I usually prefer strong, bitter greens, but when I need something lighter, this is the way I go. Tastes great for about 3 infusions.

Delicious. One of the better oolongs I’ve had in a while. Very smooth and floral with a slight burnt taste.
