1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

Buttery tone. I am detecting grapefruit oolong flavour. There is a sencha-like sweetness with a touch of smokiness present. The sweetness also has a sticky-sweetness characteristic which which quite strong into the aftertaste.

drank Bangkok Blend by Harney & Sons
415 tasting notes

1.2 tbsp for 375 ml

Fresh crispness in the taste with a slight blunt bitter edge. Ginger and vanilla are very faint. The coconut and lemongrass seem to be most present. The flavour of the green tea is only slightly detectable with a vegetal hint.

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
415 tasting notes

1.1 tbsp for 248 ml

Hibiscus is strong. There is a dry mouth-feel in the aftertaste from the tartness present. There is something in the smell of the brewed tisane that of this blend that is off-putting for me. I appreciate the cinnamon note.

Light raspberry flavour in background. Mild tart tinge which makes the raspberry seem authentic. Roasted, almost smokiness, which reminds me a bit of sawdust. Slight floral tone near the aftertaste.
