I had this at a friend’s house this weekend. It’s a nice Oolong. I’m not sure what the ‘Grade II’ is all about, but it’s good. It’s just a hair green tea tasting (almost too fresh), which I prefer a little more rustic taste. I’m not sure if I’d buy it myself, but I’d have another cup of someone else’s!
17 Tasting Notes
I’ve now tried this Jasmine tea hot and cold and it is delicious both ways. I’m going to try it again hot. I can’t decide which way I like it better. I’ve been chilling the tea in the refrigerator and serving in a chilled glass, but I’m not using any ice. I don’t want to water it down at all. Does anyone else have any ‘chilled tea’ ideas?
Very original and it smells really good. I like the creaminess. I’d like to try this tea with everything minus the Lapsang. I like that they tried adding it in here, but to me it doesn’t work.
It’s getting way too hot outside. I was complaining just 3 weeks ago that it was cold and it didn’t feel like Summer, and now I’m eating those words. It’s super hot now and there’s no breeze. It’s time to turn to a tea that I tried iced last Summer and really did the trick. I really like the creamy flavor of this when it’s served hot, but it’s very refreshing on ice too.
I’ve been spending way too much $ on tea lately! This is a pretty non standard Oolong. I like it. It’s a little milder than what I would usually call a good Oolong, but it has nice flavors.
A very earthly beautiful tea. Some time went into these.
Very simple with some sweet notes
OK, this really is better than the Matcha I have had before. I’m still not a fan, but I can see if I was going to drink it for health reasons, I would drink DoMatcha’s Matcha. It’s less bitter.
This tea has a taste that covers my whole tongue if that makes sense. It’s very rounded, even and smooth. Again, I’m going to take part of the credit due to my excellent steep! ;-)
I’ve had this around for awhile and I like to add it to other teas, especially ice teas, but I had never had it alone.
I honestly don’t get it. It’s a nice Summer day, and I’m going to pour this out and get something that makes sense. I just feel like this is lacking something with heart.
I like this Osmanthus Silver Needle better tha Rishi’s. It’s a better pairing of the two with a softer balance so one doesn’t overpower the other. The Silver Needle is nice, but doesn’t seem to be of the best quality. It may have been just my batch, but it seems very broken.
I had to try a sample of this even though green Oolong isn’t on the top of my must have list. This is obviously superb tea. I’m still not sold on green Oolong, but if I were wired that way, I think this would be one of, if not the best I’ve tried.
I really am enjoying this Silver Needle. I am on my second cup this morning and I rarely drink two cups of tea back to back. Maybe I did the perfect steep. (notice I take the credit!) This tea has an very refreshing tone, and it is flavorful while being about as smooth of Silver Needle as I may have ever had. Good morning!
Irish Breakfast, Scottish Breakfast – I’ve honestly never really known the main difference. I’m really enjoying this tea though. Very good for a weekend when you’re going to actually eat breakfast late and you just want the tea to carry you through the first couple of hours after waking up. There are plenty of hearty flavors in here.
This is a fun Silver Needle. If nothing else, the rose petals really make it a beautiful tea and the Silver Needle is nice and smooth too.
Silver Needle is still one of my favorite teas. I have flings with others now and then, but I always come back to my love.
This is a decent, base Silver Needle. It’s very drinkable, but it lacks structure. Also, the tea looks handled for some reason; if that makes sense.
I love Silver Needle, but I haven’t had many with flavoring. I actually think the Osmanthus is better tasting in this than the Silver Needle. Silver Needle should be smoother than this, but Osmanthus is a great selection for added flavor as it brings this up to drinkable.
