36 Tasting Notes
It’s taken me a bit to get around to reviewing this tea. I’ve been really busy with work and haven’t had it on my mind much. I really enjoy this tea! The spearmint smell is strong just how I like! It doesn’t need much sugar to taste divine! It’s one of those teas that I can have several cups of. So I have to make sure to limit myself so I don’t run out quickly.
It’s that time of year and I couldn’t resist ordering more tea. I was running low on my favorites, so I reordered and then got a few new things! My tea came in yesterday just as I was getting off work. I always get excited when the UPS guy comes and hands me my box of tea! Because then I can go in and smell all the new teas I get try! I’m weird I know on with the review! I’ve been wanting to try this since around June. The smell of the tea at first made me wary. Although smells often make me wary of trying anything new. This tea was a very nice surprise! While mellow it also packs a lite punch especially when sugar is added. It really brings out the blueberry! Overall the taste is crisp and refreshing. Normally it takes me forever to finish a cup of tea. Not this time I could barely put the cup down!!
This tea was given to me by my girlfriend. She enjoyed it but it wasn’t something she would continue to drink. She’s not a very big fan of black teas. It’s a nice sweet tea without being overpoweringly so. You definitely get the berry notes of the raspberry. It’s pretty mellow even with adding a little over two teaspoons. I like the more stronger teas myself personally. Overall though it’s still a very nice tea. So if mellow teas are more your style, you’re sure to keep coming back for more. As for myself this will be a tea I drink ever so often.
This was the first oolong tea I’ve tried.So maybe I’m not giving it enough credit. But it was a bit more mellow than I was expecting. After getting use to it, it has a nice almond after taste. It’s not something I would drink everyday, but if I wanted something to mellow me out this would be the tea I’d drink.
