430 Tasting Notes
This is just as discribed. I found the color once steeped to be very light. It was barely colored at all. Shockingly though there was definately flavor there. It was delicate, green, fresh, and just a touch nutty.
Although, it is good I like teas that are a touch more robust in flavor, even my greens. So perhaps I will fiddle a bit more with leaf quantity and steep times until I find what’s perfect for me.
I purchased this from the lovely KeenTeaThyme who has a site on www.Teatr.de it is one of her personally created blends.
First, I mixed up the bag since much of the ingredents decided to seperate. After doing so I decided to steep it in my Gaiwan. The dry leaf smelled wonderful. The strongest scent was the bits of strawberry. I do love strawberry and this had a wonderfully juicy smell to it.
Once steeped I found the flavors to be nicely balanced. However, I was hoping for a stronger oolong flavor but it was to be expected that it wouldn’t since this blend did have a wide variety of ingredents. Nevertheless, it was a pleasant treat and I am glad I purchased it.
Thank you Teavivre for sending me this sample. It has been enjoyed. For a full review…
A surprising tea. Especially for a girl that isn’t particularly big on jasmine teas.
So this wasn’t my cuppa. Solid but nevertheless.
A quick video review for your viewing pleasure…
First, I’d like to thank Tea Forte for sending me this sample.
I found this tea to be very tart with a taste of blueberry in the background. I can tell why they call this a merlot. Being a wine drinker, I can taste hints of that merlot sort of flavoring. As for accuracy it is what it says it is. However, I do believe adding sweetner to this tea would actually enhance its flavor. I would imagine that the tartness would be deminished and the blueberry flavor stronger. Unfortunately, I usually don’t sweeten my teas and I didn’t make an exception this time either so as is this is not something for me but have high hopes that it can be worked with and as a result be more palatable.
Thanks BijaBody for sending me this tea to try. This is my first video review of any tea. I hope there will be more to come. Check it out…
A basic overview of what comes with the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker and how it works. I had a few people that were curious about the basic so I put together a quick video I hopes will help to answer some questions.
Please be gentle this is my first ever video that I have made with the intent of sharing with all my tea friends. It is a little long and a little boring but still I hope it captures my excitement I was feeling when I finally got my first chance to use this lovely Christmas gift I received from my dear husband Ralph.
As for the tea – The Milk Oolong I used turned out amazing. I absolutely enjoyed this just as I would have if I had made it the traditional way.
