637 Tasting Notes

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

A little astringency. Authentic plum aroma. Marshmallow aftertaste. Sencha base flavour comes through. Odd sharp metallic/pungent/slightly swampy note that has a zinging sensation on the tongue.

Dilute flavour. Slight creaminess. Sugary aftertaste. Lime flavour throughout. I would prefer this flavouring with a green tea base.

Maple syrup or marshmallow-like sweetness. Lavender is stronger than the bergamot but I enjoy the balance of the two. No excessive astringency.

A little too astringent. I think that I must have used too much leaf. I should use only 1 tbp for 375 ml in the future. Good strawberry flavour.

Slight clove and cherry flavour contamination from being close to other teas in transit (my own fault). I am detecting the mineral flavours that comes off as a sort of sweetness. Savoury tones. Warm nutty flavours. Caramel tone. Slight fruity sweetness. Slight vegetal tone in the mix.

Second infusion at 5 minutes. Hojicha-like straw aroma/taste. At the end of my cup I could taste the grape-fruity flavour that I’ve found to associate with oolongs.

drank Royal Wedding by Harney & Sons

1.25 tbsp for 282 ml

Slightly overpowering astringency. Astringency is subdued by coconut and vanilla notes. Coconut flavour is very full and quite authentic. Strong white tea flavour present. Overall, the tea feels fragmented as if the flavours don’t meld together very well.

drank Pumpkin Spice Rooibos by Tealux

Used 1.5 tablespoons for ~375ml of water.

Lemon-y note. Dilute overall flavour. Rich gourd-like pumpkin tone. Baked-goods note. Spices complement the flavour profile very well and do not overpower. Slightest hint of creaminess. Savoury taste profile. Woodsy note from the rooibos base.
