51 Tasting Notes
I have been waiting to review this tea, because frankly, it baffles me. I have never tasted another tea with quite this flavor. Not having experienced Ti Kuan Yin ever, I cannot compare this but to different types of oolongs. Having said that, it is quite a tea. The aroma is very vegetal bordering on almost fresh paint notes. (which I like btw)
The smooth yet hardy roasted flavor is more intense than most oolongs I have tasted. I want to say the flavor is almost metallic but not in a bad way. It makes me feel I am drinking something extremely healthy. This is a very complex very good tea. This will definitely become a staple for me.
Funny this tea. Dry it smells just like butterscotch candy. Once steeped the butterscotch dissapears. Overall, this tea delivers a smooth, nutty and slightly astringent cup. I don’t mind drinking it, but I was hoping for more based on the smell and the name.
Not caring for this. I did multiple steeping times and temps. It is just not good. The vanilla is artificial and cheep tasting. I know teas that have wonderful vanilla flavorings. There is no reason for it to taste this bad. Shame.
Ok my new favorite tea company has to be 52 Teas. Frank, I wish all tea companies had your flavoring flare. As silly and gimmicky as Cotton Candy Tea sounds, it desearves much respect and praise. A fantastic black base and real cotton candy flavor. Wonderful. Thank you LiberTEAS for adding this to the pack I bought from you.
You know, I am really surprised at what a low rating this tea has. Though it’s not one of my favorites, it’s a far cry from a bad tea. In both the aroma and taste I am getting more of a maple syrup and brown sugar vibe than carmel and vanilla. It does come off little bitter but still a soothing mild chai.
Ok, ok. Silver Needles may be the Prom Queen this year, but next year she will graduate and little sister will wear the crown! Wonderfully delicate and lighty floral. Luckily not much of the licorice is coming through. This one should be a staple for everone.
