277 Tasting Notes
This tea is tasty but I will never purchase it again. It is ridiculously overpriced given what you get, and other oolongs from other brands are just as tasty.
This flavor is very mild, floral, and green. It holds up to many steepings, as most oolongs of this kind do, my main gripe is that it just isn’t that special considering the price.
After learning how to best brew it, I am a big fan of this tea. It is VERY floral – it is like drinking straight flowers. So if that isn’t for you, then steer clear! I’ve found this does not taste good if oversteeped, and actually is most balance when I stick to 2 minutes of steep time. I had never had lavender tea before this and now I plan to seek out others. The only problem I had was that I was introduced to candied violets. My cup has never seen the candied violet because I admit, when I see them I pick them out and just eat them straight. I am now on the hunt for candied violets that aren’t an arm and a leg!!
Chai is my favorite to drink in the cooler weather, and I love having a caffeine free version. I got a lot of this during one of the 75% off sales, and sort of wish I hadn’t. It is delicious, but I wish the spices were a bit stronger. I have to use more tea than I normally would to make a cup that has flavor even after I add almond milk.
