506 Tasting Notes
Thick creamy mouthfeel- one of the best I’ve experienced with an herbal. The chamomile flavour is clearly present but blends well with the other flavours. The aroma is quite creamy and sweet which does seem to translate to the flavour. I did have to use a quite strong cocentration of dry leaf to achieve this flavour profile, however
Flavors: Apple, Cream
Brewed tea smells very Christmas-y with clove and tartness.
The actual flavour of the tea has too manly elements with no flavour focus. I can detect the tartness of the hibiscus and the cutting sweetness of the licorice. I can possibly detect some apple note and spiciness of the ginger.
The mix of too many ingredients reminds me of “Indian Summer” by DAVIDsTEA- which I also did not enjoy.
Flavors: Licorice, Spicy, Tart
I find the aroma of the brewed infusion to be slightly offensive- tangy and sour. This does not, however, transfer into the flavour. I find the flavour to be dilute peppermint tasting with a mix of medicinal herb taste in the background.
Flavors: Herbs, Medicinal, Peppermint
Dilute-tasting. The fullness of the flavour really comes out at the end of the sip, especially as the brew cools. The walnut is a very nice complement to the oolong and pairs nicely with the cinnamon. I detect a hint of sticky sweetness. Note of apple. Roasted note from the chicory root. This tea may benefit from a stronger concentration of dry leaf.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Roasted, Sweet, Walnut
