84 Tasting Notes
A very flowery oolong – if you like that sort of thing! If I’m in the mood for something floral… osthmanthus is the one for me. And the oolong base is good, and very crisp.
However… as far as osthmanthus goes… I prefer the Osthmanthus Silver Needle to the Osthmanthus Huang Guan Yin.
Osthmanthus Huang Guan Yin: Good. Osthmanthus Silver Needle: AWESOME.
Ohhhhhh YuzuCha… I needed a Japanese Green. This was the right choice.
I hate to admit it, but I had no idea “yuzu” existed before I experienced this tea. But now I’d really like to see one for myself! I hate having an ingredient in something, that I am unable to acquire and try on it’s own, for the sake of flavour comparison.
Anyways… the tea is lovely. A glorious sencha, and the yuzu adds a flavour that’s… citrusy? I’m not sure citrusy is the right description. It adds a very pleasant sweet yet tangy note to the yummy vegetal profile natural to this sencha.
I enjoy it on it’s own but… it would be WONDERFUL PAIRED WITH A BAKED FISH methinks! :)
Found another excellent one! Didn’t buy enough at once! :(
Moonlight White. Mmmmmm… It’s a very nectary white tea. Subtle hints of honey and ripe yellow fruits like apricot. This one I highly recommend for the white tea obsessee!!!
And as always the best comes from Yunnan. (Unless we’re talking green teas… Japan all the way!)
Made a chai latte with this chai concentrate for the first time last night.
It was good. Better than I presumed it would be. But… I’ve had better.
I’ve had much better.
Quite sweet. Rather mellow for my taste in Chai. And, I knew something was wrong right away when I saw how watery it was, as it poured out of the box.
Yummmm! At first I wasn’t sure what to think about this tea… I started drinking it because I was sick (hence choosing an ayurvedic blend)… and it hit me differently. This is probably because when I drink “tea” I think of more “tea”-like flavours… but this is a botanical blend, and not one that I necessarily thought would appeal to me. BUT I LOVE IT. Especially with winter settling in here in Milwaukee, I’ve really come to depend not only on it’s healthful properties, but also on it’s really unique spicy, sweet, zingy taste. The most dominant flavours are of the lemongrass and the licorice root. I highly recommend it. And it’s still completely lovely if you feel a cold coming on, and want to steep it extra long to get the real benefits of the tea.
So soothing… lovely! :)
Today was my first time trying this tea!
I think it would go really well WITH MIDDLE EASTERN FOOD! I’m craving now…
Next meal: Babaghannoj, Foule, Hummus, Chicken Kabobs, a Rosewater Lemonade, and WHITE TEA ROSE MELANGE. And maybe a hookah. Reeeeeally craving now…
…Sheesh, you’d swear I was pregnant. But no hookah if I was pregnant. WHICH I’M NOT. :)
I really love this tea!!! A hint of peach, that enhances the white tea, rather than distracting from it! Just the way a white tea blend should be :)
I’ve found that when it comes to sharing with guests or gift giving, this is a great route to go, because it seems to appeal to most palettes! Everyone seems to either really like fruity teas, or really not like fruity teas… and this one bridges the gap!
