143 Tasting Notes
The peach flavor in here tastes and smells natural, which is a plus. They did a pretty good job on blending the flavors, nothing is too overpowering. I’m not usually a huge fruit-and-tea-mixed-together fan, but I could see myself making iced tea out of this in the Summertime.
Wow this smells fruity. It tastes mostly like peach, but also reminds me of mango. There is kind of a refreshing minty effect I’m getting on mouthfeel. It’s pretty popular with the people I’m drinking it with.
I’m not usually into coconut, but this sounded interesting, so I’m giving it a try.
I’m detecting the following:
pre-steep scent – coconut
Steeped scent – vanilla, coconut
Taste – coconut mostly, vanilla, and also something that reminds me of butterscotch. Very flavorful tea. I like it quite a bit more iced than hot.
I mostly detect clove with a little bit of cinnamon. I’m not sure if there is any orange rind in here or not, but I’m picking up hints of that as well. I’m not much of a chai person, but this is a worthy effort. It’s one of the rare chais I’ve preferred without milk.
I usually don’t care for chamomile tea, but this is pretty good. I’m getting tasting notes that remind me of apples, maybe honey. Lots of floral taste too (obviously).
Pretty roasty, earthy, and woody tasting. As it cools I’m getting some coffee like notes. A lot of times I like my teas cooler, but prefer this one nice and hot.
On smell I get vegetal notes. Taste is earthy, nutty, and mineral like. Kind of reminds me of their roasted oolong, with less of a coffee note in the background. All in all this is a pretty solid oolong.
This tea smells like milk chocolate and honey, with maybe a hint of molasses, and basically tastes the same. Has a little bit of an aftertaste with a faint tanginess to it that kind of reminds me of green grapes. I prefer this with a short steep time and lower temperature. Good taste and great price makes this a good Yunnan for every day use.
Smells pretty vegetal, like boiled greens. I don’t detect a lot of that on taste though. Kind of roasty and rich compared to other oolongs I’ve had. One of the better ones in fact; I’m really enjoying each sip. It is reasonably priced at the time of this review. This is something I could drink on a regular basis…
