263 Tasting Notes
I received this as a sample with my order. I love the sencha in it. I was unsure what to think of rose. Now I know, I don’t like rose if it’s a dominant flavor. If it’s a background flavor, I can take it. But straight up rose? I can’t do it. I still gladly drank the sample. I have requested they make a coconut flavor, since their flavored sencha are all top notch.
You must LOVE rose to enjoy this tea. It’s still good.
I received this from a swap. It’s just an okay oolong. It does have a natural pinching sweetness. It has a mint like taste that white teas have, too. Interesting. I am greener oolong fan, so I am slighted. But compared to other darker oolongs, it’s not a standout.
Thank you LiberTeas for a taste of this! I brewed it for a hot drink with cream. I added a little sugar.
It just isn’t me. I like hibiscus if it’s iced. I couldn’t taste the red tea as well. I tasted a little white chocolate, and I am not the biggest fan of it. I love black currant, but I prefer it iced, too. I don’t think I would like this tea iced, either. The flavors together just weren’t for me.
Oh SpecialTeas, why did you have to leave us? I love this tea!
I bought this from Norbu after a month at looking at every gaiwan possible. It’s everything I wanted in a gaiwan. Light weight, glass, and around 4 oz. It’s actually 5.07 oz. It came with a sample of their oolong tea, which was an extra perk. I use it weekly. It was shipped fast, too! Plus, it was the best price, including shipping! I just hope I never drop it! :)
How can I be so blind? You know you have too many teas when you forget you have a gyokuro hiding around. I received this from Christmas as a gift from my mom. I finally found it in my green tea shelf. This has been an awesome week in tea for me. I had my first silver needle, first milk oolong, now the first gyokuro.
WOW, this tea is so beautifully green! When brewed, it just smells and LOOKS like fresh spinach. I let it cool a little, and this is truly a cup of perfection. It’s just so tasty, grassy. I really don’t feel experienced enough to give a description, it’s beyond words, too.
This is my first milk oolong. I’m onto my 3rd brew…this is some good stuff! The rebrews aren’t getting weaker…yay. Very smooth. I didn’t get the milk flavor until it cooled down. I let it sit til it was cold, and it came out even more. I think for the price, I am not sure it’s worth it. This style is likable, I wanted to taste more butteryiness to it!
I am glad I tried it.
I LOVE black currant in teas. It’s my favorite in black. So this being paired with white tea intrigued me. I got it with the V-Day sampler.
At first, I didn’t know what to think. I had to kind of just sit back, and enjoy the tea. I would of loved more black currant! But with every review I write with black currant flavored teas, that’s my complaint, so nothing new. It is very delicately flavored. Stood up for 4 rebrews.
This reminds me of another tea called Brazilian Delight, which I prefer to this one. It just has more fruit, and the black currant was more pronounced. It’s sold by Todd and Holland, but I googled the ingredients and saw other places selling the exact tea.
I like this tea, but I would of enjoyed more fruit. Though more black currant would probably hide the actual tea flavor, which it nice and light. Very nice iced.
This is my very first experience with silver needle. Well, I am a fan now! This ranks up there with having REAL sencha. And that changed everything for me.
I received this sample from Doulton. This tea is quite amazing. I got 4 rebrews from it, adding 1-2 minutes to each brew. And it’s great both iced and hot. It’s just so perfect, it has such an elegance to it. For being such a light brew, it produces such a loud flavor.
Thank you Doulton for this tea. It is quite amazing, and I am now addicted. I want to marry this tea.
