4837 Tasting Notes
We’re having a late lunch (I made stir fry) and I decided to brew some of this to enjoy with my lunch… delightful as always! I love this tea. The flavor is rich and buttery (almost creamy) and smooth. Sweet!!! The floral notes are enchanting. Very nice – I like how well it is pairing with my lunch today.
I enjoyed a cup of this with the birthday cookies I made for the birthday party (my daughter requested cookies – her favorite peanut butter blossoms – instead of a cake for her party)… and it is so good with dessert! Then again, it’s good instead of dessert.
Still my favorite… although I think that the chocolate malt honeybush may give it a run for it’s money.
Two Oolongs in one day? Yay!
OK… this is totally yum. Like YUMMMMMM!
This has a very lovely honey-esque note to it, sweet, with a roasty nutty taste too. A very light buttery touch, and a very pleasant floral note.
This is why I love Oolongs!
No other teas can match their complexity, in my opinion… such a unique depth of flavor, rich mouthfeel, it’s like drinking liquid gold.
This is actually the Ali Shan Spring 09, but, since there wasn’t an entry for the Spring offering, and Norbu no longer has the Spring available, I decided to just use the fall.
Delicious. In my opinion, Norbu offers the best Ali Shan. And I love drinking it out of my new Yixing mug. It makes Ali Shan even more special by distinguishing it with it’s own mug.
The flavor is only slightly nutty, pleasantly floral, buttery, rich, absolutely SUPERB!
This is a very delicious blend of tea, fruit and spice. The tea is brisk and alive with flavor. Surprisingly strong tea flavor when considering the other flavors that are represented in this blend.
The spices are pleasant – not too heavy – and provide a really nice accent to the juicy sweet orange flavor. Very autumnal, this blend, and it makes me long for the cool, crisp air and the colors of fall!
