Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way! I am always happy to try an Oolong!
I have tasted a lot of Oolong teas, but very few Milk Oolong teas.
Heavenly! Soft, fluffy cloud-like! It has a thick, creamy texture like whole milk, and such a delicious flavor that is sweet, nutty and vegetative. This is quite possibly the most perfect Milk Oolong I’ve ever tasted. Fantastic!!!
Amazing! I do love a good Yunnan – and this certainly fits the bill… to a TEA!
Pleasantly starchy with a sweet potato taste, hints of spice and earth and wood come and go throughout the sip. It finishes with a somewhat dry astringency.
A very fine Yunnan indeed!
ETA: I need to add a huge THANK YOU to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! I really loved this – thank you so much!!!
Delicious! The cranberry and orange taste vibrant and juicy. The spices are very mild and are more of an accent to the flavor rather than a strong presence in the cup.
The black tea is fairly mellow with a bit of astringency – slightly drying. Pleasantly sweet without any additions but I prefer it with a little bit of honey. Nice and autumn-ish!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea – it’s one that I’ve wanted to try for a while now!
The floral notes of this tea are very pleasant – sharp yet sweet, and an excellent contrast with the brisk flavor of the black tea and the sumptuous flavor of the fruit.
Delicious! I’m really glad I got to try this!
OK, I’m glad I saved this one for last. I love the way the bergamot comes through the rich chocolate flavor. This is SO GOOD.
The citrus-y bergamot flavor is perfectly paired with the sweet chocolate flavor. It is sweet and creamy and decadent.
I so enjoyed this collection of truffles! They are absolutely awesome!
Ugh… Monday already.
I have an appointment this morning, so I can’t go back to bed and take a nap. So, it’s Mate to the rescue!
This morning, I added a bit of cinnamon to the finished product… I like it a lot like that. Tasty! Rich and robust and I can already feel it starting to work it’s magic. Yay!
I have to agree with most of the other tasting notes about this tea – it has too much hibiscus.
However, if you let it cool (or have it iced) the hibiscus is not as troublesome.
This is one though that requires a healthy dose of honey to curb some of that tart hibiscus taste. I will say though that the honey brings out the apple and citrus notes a bit.
