3 Tasting Notes
Yum! My tasting notes are as follows;
Dry Leaf – Smells of cream and a slight bit vegetal. Very pleasing to the nose.
Steeping – Sweet cream with a little mineral. Inviting and ‘warm’ scented.
Flavour while hot – mineral, cream and vegetal. Dominant notes of cream.
Flavour while cooling – Sweet and mineral and cream – in that order.
Mouth feel – Rich ‘brothy’ mouth feel. Leaves a creamy feeling on the tongue and palette for several minutes after consumption.
This is a must-have staple tea for me. Delicious.
This tea is okay – in that it isn’t something I reach for, but it certainly isn’t abhorrent to me.
The scent is definitely more floral than plum for me. It does smell a bit artificial, but that may be accountable to my sensitivity to florals – florals MUST be expertly executed in order for me to enjoy the scent of them.
This tea has a nice, full mouth feel, but comes off a little dry and gritty – if that makes sense. Ultimately, this is a ‘skip’ for me, although it is not possible to purchase anymore anyway, as Teaopia is no more.
Meh – the best way to describe this tea.
What a warm and refreshing nectar. The peach in this tea really tempers the oolong leaf – which I find is not especially pungent in this blend. The almond comes through as a nice addition to this melange, but does not have a distinct flavor of its own.
The mouth feel of this tea is a little dry and nectar-ish, although not negatively so. It’s a pleasant thing.
I like this as-is or sometimes lightly sweetened with stevia for dessert.
Great, well-balanced tea.
