500 Tasting Notes
Tasting note number 350. Exciting, isn’t it? The nice people at Lupicia brewed me a sample after I told them it was so recommended to me.
The dry leaves smelled so good. Very fresh and like I was going to pick out melons in the farmers market. I got slightly more honey dew. When brewed the green oolong came out more. It went well with the melon flavour. Different, but I’ll likely get this if I ever go a Lupicia store again, or maybe order online next summer.
Flavors: Cantaloupe, Green, Honeydew, Melon
They made this when I was at the store for a tea tasting, I might have even suggested it. Smelled very fresh and fruity. The flavour was sweet and did taste nicely like the fruit. Since that is one of my favourite fruits I was glad I got to try the sample.
I also liked watching the store staff brew things by gaiwan.
Cameron B sent me so I could try some Whispering Pines teas. After I brewed it, I got a scent of sweet potatoes, and a some baked bread. The flavour made think of raisin bread, except a bit dark, and maybe molasses.
This is very nice blended with the Fujian black tea.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Molasses, Raisins, Sweet Potatoes
My very first tea of yesterday. When I went to open the package, I did so without looking, then wondered why it smelt like oolong. I’d of course grabbed the wrong package, since I’d just woken up. Once I got the correct one, I was really wanting some tea. It didn’t really smell like the flowers while still in the toucha. After brewing, I got some floral scents. The brew was a dark, it looks close to some sort of cola. For the flavour, I mostly get the deep earthy notes, and bit of floral sweetness.
Flavors: Earth, Floral
