4637 Tasting Notes
This is one of the more unusual Apricot flavored teas that I’ve encountered, and I mean that in a good way.
The flavor is sweet. A hint of vegetation but not strong. A silky mouthfeel. The apricot is sweet and fruity but, it is also a delicate flavor which allows me to enjoy the other tea flavors that are going on. I like it… it is one that I want to play around with to find just the right steep time and temp, but, from what I’m tasting here, it will be worth the time and effort to get it just right.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!
This is a very good white tea. The flavors have a nice balance. I can taste the crisp white tea, the blueberries and the kiwi. I don’t encounter a lot of kiwi flavored teas, and when I do, it is sometimes difficult to discern the kiwi taste. Not with this tea though – it’s yummy! Fruity delicious!
Of all the chocolate chai teas that I’ve tasted up until now, this one is by far the most chocolate-y. There is a smoothness to the tea and to the spices as a whole – it is very well rounded. It isn’t overwhelmingly spicy and in fact I could even call it somewhat mild in the spice department, but, the stronger cocoa presence more than makes up for that.
The tea is not bitter despite my longer than usual steep time. I’m really loving this…
OK… this tea scared me. I have not been a big fan of pu-erh.
The aroma of the dry leaf is very earthy. The brewed liquor also smells quite earthy.
Taste: yes, it’s earthy. There is also an underlying sweetness to it, almost a floral note and a faint vegetative note.
It’s not bad nor is it as disagreeable as I thought it would be.
I am absolutely astonished at how quickly my order from 52Teas (aka ManTeas) has arrived. I couldn’t resist their buy 3 get 1 free offer, and I was very pleased that they happened to send me a tea that I hadn’t tried yet, wasn’t peanut butter flavored, and wasn’t pu-erh. Frank must love me!
I had to order this one because not only do I love chocolate covered bacon (way yummy), but, I also really did enjoy their maple bacon tea.
Very interesting! I can taste the chocolate (although it could use more) and I can taste the bacon (this is enhanced by adding just a pinch of salt to the brewed cup), the black tea is smooth. Quite tasty… a bit odd… but tasty!
This is my first experience with a tea from Imperial Tea Garden, and it’s all thanks to TeaEqualsBliss!
This is a ‘green’ Oolong, but it has a roasty-toasty flavor to it. There is a light vegetative note. It has a fresh taste, there are floral notes and a faint fruit note as well.
It’s really delicious!
Thank you Jaime for sending me a bit of this tea!
This one definitely has some kick. The black tea is a smooth base and I can taste a bit of a caramel-y sweetness to it that tastes delightful with the spice in this blend… I like the contrast of sweet and spice.
I am glad that I have time to be able to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea before the craziness that is my Monday ensues!
I wanted something strong and comforting… and this is what I grabbed… And it is indeed strong and comforting! The black tea is not as stout as some other teas that I have in my stash, but, it works well for this particular Earl Grey. The bergamot is very pleasant. Not a hint of perfume. Just delicious fruity bergamot with a hint of flowery sharpness in the background. I love it.
I am very pleased with this blend. I have been looking for a grapefruit GREEN tea to replace the grapefruit tea I fell in love with in Tucson but have been unable to find since. This one comes pretty darned close, even if it’s a white tea.
The grapefruit aroma and taste is authentic. It doesn’t taste sweetened, it smells like fresh, juicy grapefruit. The flavors are well balanced – the white tea is not overwhelmed, and the grapefruit tastes true.
An excellent tea!
