3 Tasting Notes

The best lemon-mint tea I’ve had. I haven’t had many mint teas(4-5)but this was great. I probably haven’t been introduced to a high quality mint yet :p. First tried it at a local Crepes and Grapes with a soup and sandwich and I knew it was great from the first sip. The leaves fully unfurled in the pyramid satchet with an astonishing weight for a teabag. The liqour was not very murky at all compared to many bagged herbal teas Ive had, and the taste was more pleasant than astringent; lemon verbena present but maybe not as much in taste than aroma. Enjoyed every last sip and was able to resteep it for a second cup. Would recommend to lovers of mint herbal teas.

Definitely overpriced as I have had similar oolong from the same region for much less, but it tastes great nonetheless. Very vegetal oolong, which is probabaly why I like it so much. The tea has a beautifully delicate color and smooth taste. Can be resteeped no more than twice because it can be steeped a little longer longer than the recommended time in my opinion. Has a nice buttery aftertaste upon resteeping. I would recommend it but not from this vendor because I cannot justify buying anymore for this price.

Not bad for a flavored and bagged green tea. Tastes mostly like passionfuit and orange though. The green tea can be pretty bitter for a name that suggests such sublteness. Somewhat harsh aftertaste, but it’s not all bad when you add honey to it. But by then it’s mostly just a fuit tea with a hint of jasmine aroma. I recommend a very quick steep at a lower than normal temperature to reduce the harshness.
