4322 Tasting Notes
I love the perky, crisp flavor of this tea, without being too overwhelmingly mint. A very pleasing balance of mint and green tea. Check out my previous review of this tea here:
This is a SPECTACULAR Oolong. The liquor is a beautiful golden color.
The flavor is smooth and rich and sweet. fruity and floral. Loving it and looking forward to many more infusions to follow.
This may be almost (if not just) as good as my beloved Ali Shan from Norbu!
As there are only 2 days left (today and tomorrow) to enter to win your very own tin of this at: http://sororitea.wordpress.com I felt it would be very appropriate to begin the day with this tea.
My daughter is getting more and more proficient at measuring the tea… I’ll have her a seasoned tea lady in no time!
Brisk! Fruity! Delicious! I love Earl Grey and this is certainly an excellent variety. Crisp and bold – nice to wake up to.
I purchased this a few weeks ago when I went to Townshend’s.
I love the fragrance of this tea – the roasted hojicha, the lavender and of course the jasmine!
Yum! How delightful it is. The jasmine is strong in this blend – I had worried that it might be overwhelmed by the hojicha. But it is nicely balanced. The lavender is also strong. The green tea is soft, but does present itself on the palate… and then there is a toasty essence from the hojicha which is also soft, but so pleasant the way it presents itself. I am loving it.
sigh this tea just isn’t doing it for me this morning. I miss loose leaf already.
it’s not bad really, but let’s just say that after a full day of not having any loose leaf tea, I can really taste the difference now. I guess I am going to need to teach my daughters how to measure out my tea so that I can have some good stuff today.
I have limited use of my left hand today (I’m left handed) and so I find it difficult to do something as simple as measuring out loose leaf tea. Bagged tea to the rescue.
I am sure I’ve said it before, but this is my favorite Mighty Leaf blend. That being said, I’ve not tried much of their teas, so I’m making that statement on limited knowledge of their teas.
I received this tea as a sample with my 2010 Shin-Cha Select.
This sencha is finely coated with a dusting of Matcha, which gives the brewed tea a slightly brighter color (as well as a slightly less translucent appearance).
The flavor is very fresh and vibrant and vegetative! The matcha gives a sweetness to the cup that I’m really liking. Just a hint of bitterness cuts through the sweet. Very pleasant cup indeed!
