215 Tasting Notes
One of the samples I ordered from Tao Tea Leaf. I took this in my Timolino yesterday. I like taking white teas in the Timolino as it keeps them nice and hot. They are brewed at such low temperatures and I hate it when my tea cools down too fast. So keeping in mind the Timolino also does not make the best tasting enviroment for a tea , I enjoyed this tea but cannot remember anything remarkable about it. It was delicate and not bitter…..
Darn! Just can’t remember much about it. No rating but I’ve had White Peony tea before from other companies and it’s never been my favourite unflavoured white.
Took this tea in my Timolino today. It’s got a sweet grassiness with a nippy rhubarb edge to it. I’ve tasted something like this rhubarb flavouring somewhere else but can’t remember. Overall, an enjoyable tea. I liked it even better than my first cup so maybe this one will grow on me more.
I didn’t really enjoy this tea. Took it in my Timolino yesterday morning and threw it out . I just didn’t enjoy the ginger peppercorn spiciness. I have no idea what guava tastes like so couldn’t tell if it was there or not. I don’t like a lot of chai teas so I’m not surprised this one didn’t appeal to me. It seems the spicy flavour just overpowered the delicate white tea.
I just love high mountain green tea in general. This seems like a good quality one. Sweet, buttery, not grassy, smooth. First cup – excellent. 2nd infusion – a bit weak. I think I didn’t let it steep long enough. I added an extra minute onto the steep time. it’s still good .
