16 Tasting Notes

Kind of light for a tea this early in my day, maybe 3 minutes with 7g wasn’t enough? I definitely taste the honey notes, but the woody notes taste more like a ricola original cough drop, MINUS the menthol, to me. I can see this being a good “sore throat” tea.

It reminds me very heavily of Haagen-Dazs’ green tea ice cream. In fact, it reminds me of having the same flavor of most MATCHA based drinks and baked goods. It is, however considerably sweeter than matcha, and that must be taken into account. A VERY short steep time is vest for this tea, I have found, with very mildly hotter water than is shown on the package.

Yet again, another stellar tea from what-cha.

Very heavy on the coconut. Could be considered cloying if one isn’t in the mood for that heavy of sweetness, luckily I was this morning.

I went with my gut feeling and only used 1.5-2 tsp in my steeping with 8oz water. I can see how using the full recommended 1tbsp might be overwhelming.

Tastes like a tres leches cake. In a very good way. Creamy and luscious, with a nice caramelly overtone. While brewing, my mother-in-law asked if i had opened the bottle of vanilla! Nope, just this awesome tea.

I expected something more floral. To me it has a little bit of a cinnamon top note, followed by a buttery smooth taste, THEN followed by a hint of floral aftertaste, similar to a gardenia fower.

All in all, not what I was expecting from something called a “Flowery” oolong, but a good tea none the less.

This reminds me of citrus, almost like a slightly bitter winter orange. Dee-licious. guzzled my first mug in seconds flat, and got 3 more western style brews out of it. Next to try is some gong-fu!

Tastes like a dark chocolate heavy on the fruit notes. Husband would not share, so I had to make my own mug.

This is BIG time roasty and mushroom-y. My husband took a sip and mistook it for a broth.

It is very deep and delicious.

It is hands down one of the best iterations of Da Hong Pao I have seen
