439 Tasting Notes
Slightly creamy. Butter. High quality oolong taste. Seaweed complementary flavour in the background. Banana closer to the end of the taste. The banana taste goes really well with the oolong flavour. The stevia is well blended, I am usually sensitive to the taste/aftertaste.
Sweet throughout with earthy tones and a distinct citrus taste. Woodsy taste to it- maybe cedar mostly. Taste reminds me of the texture of coconut flesh. The aftertaste reminds me of honey
For some reason, the aroma of this tea reminds me of a newborn baby’s nursery with yellow walls and painted cartoon elephants. I think it may be because the scent reminds me of baby powder. Why I have a very specific baby room in mind, I cannot say.
The flavour is predominantly a blunt bitterness. The black tea taste is not very strong but is definitely present. The aftertaste contains all the sweetness and juicy-feel of pear and cranberry flavour. The fruit flavours are quite pleasant, I would prefer that they were more in the main part of the flavour.
Black tea predominant at the end of the sip- leathery taste, reminds me of the musty smell of a barn. I think that the coconut comes out most on the aftertaste and gives sweetness throughout. The white tea seems to be coming in closer to the beginning of the sip. The chamomile sweetness is mostly present in the after taste with a sticky-sweet feeling.
For the second infusion (5 minutes), the black tea taste is subdued and the flavour of the brew takes on a somewhat creamy feel.
Thin tasting on the sip. Raspberry sweetness present in the aftertaste. I’m not detecting any real chocolate flavour in this one. Definitely some roasted notes. Very smooth.
As this tisane cools, I am noticing a very full and quite delightful aftertaste.
This tisane may benefit from a longer infusion time.
This is the first time that the scent of a tisane or tea has triggered a memory. For some reason, the scent transported me back to the fourth year of my undergrad while I was studying for final exams in December. Specifically, I remembered how on one really strange day the weather would alternate between looking like a fresh spring day and a very violent snow storm every 10 minutes or so. Really neat! I have no idea why that connection was made in my subconscious- just thought it would be interesting to share!
On the first sip I am getting a predominant full melon-like taste near the end of the sip and carrying into the aftertaste. Sweetness is sourced from this flavour and carries through the sip. No bitterness is detected
As the tea cools, I’m getting quite a nice floral bouquet taste on the sip. The bluntness of black tea taste is clearly present in the background but it feels separate from the other flavours.
Dry leaf has a very thick, creamy, buttery smell. Sweet notes come through as well.
The brewed liquor maintains the buttery smell. It also smells like what reminds me of freshly baked goods. The sweetness is still present.
This tea feels thin on the creaminess in taste. Creaminess is present mostly at the start of the sip. Mild sweetness is present closer to the end. Near the end I’m getting some delightful roasted notes.
As the tea cools, I’m getting more of a fuller cream taste closer to the end of the sip. I am also finally getting the baked goods taste that I was describing in the scent.
I really like the complexity of the tea in which I am able to detect distinct creaminess as well as roasted taste.
This tea would not likely do well past its third infusion.
