301 Tasting Notes

I enjoyed this tea, but sort of wish I had enjoyed it before trying my high grade sample. The high grade was easily one of the tastiest oolongs I have ever had, and by comparison this one is very good, but not as good as that one!

This is a fabulous oolong. It is very fragrant dry, and it lasts 5-6 steeps for me. It is floral and flavorful and green and simply tasty. I would recommend it to anyone!

This is the best pu-erh I have tried so far. It is very easy to drink, stands up to what feels like unlimited steepings, and has a sweetness that most other pu-erhs seem to lack. Will absolutely be repurchasing!!

I enjoy the taste of this. It is earthy and sort of resembles black tea. I prefer it steeped like crazy, 15+ minutes is best. I drink it when I feel crampy to help extend the life of any advil or pain medication I might be taking and it works well!

I enjoyed drinking this very much – it was earthy but mild, and I was surprised that the flavor didn’t weaken with multiple steeps. It didn’t really smell like much in the bag. Definitely a treat!

I really enjoyed drinking this. It didn’t remind me at all of the pu-erhs I have tried in the past, which all had a much more pungent flavor and a bit of fishy flavor in some of the first steepings. This was much sweeter, with no fish to be found!

I really enjoyed this tea, though I would not say it is the best white I have ever tasted. It does hold up well to many steepings when brewed as directed, and each was delicious. They were very light and sweet as a whole, with no additives.

The berry and hazelnut are very distinct here, which is nice! It sets the flavor apart from a typical fruity blend. There is a bit of a sweetness to it as well which worked nicely. I highly recommend this to people who like fruity teas, but this one happens to not rock my world a ton, even though it seems like it should.

This is the best earl grey I have ever had. I am not a fan of most others, as it is very light on the bergamot. I don’t taste the creamy notes specifically, but I imagine it smooths out the bergamot for me. Normally, bergamot makes it taste almost soapy it is so sharply citrus. This was wonderful!
