Strong astringency note. I’m impressed with the overall flavour considering this is a bagged tea. I would maybe try to infuse for a shorter amount of time in the future. Dry hay note.

drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA

The licorice root very nicely offsets the tartness of the hibiscus. This tea really tastes like it contains alcohol. Nice mix of flavours- seems to have quite an authentic taste. Not something that I personally enjoy- a bit too sickly sweet for me.

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

cold brew + a little sweetener = not too bad

drank Kenyan Tinderet by DAVIDsTEA

The aroma of the brewed tea is very nice- caramel sweetness with a bit of umami. Slightly brisk with a dull bitterness. I would like to try to brew this one for less time. I can taste the flavour profile of the aroma in the background.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA
504 tasting notes

The vanilla flavour is quite strong- reminds me of the vanilla flavouring in yogurt. The vanilla overpowers the oolong, especially in the aftertaste. The oolong seems to have been over-infused or infused at too hot a temperature. I may want to try brewing this again for less time or at a lower temperature.

Does not have the thick mouth-feel that I have usually associated with my favourite pu’erhs. Thin slightly metallic on the sip. Damp woodsy-like tones on the immediate aftertaste
