129 Tasting Notes

AAAAAAAAAAND I just finished the tin. I have to say I have had this tea in my cupboard for a while. It’s been passed over many times. The other night my daughter had a sore throat and wanted hot tea with honey. I figured I would give her something relaxing with some ginger in it, Reached for this on a whim. Ended up making a cup for everyone, even myself…
Well…let’s just say that I drank this tea every night since till it was gone. The flavor is soothing and relaxing. I do like the cinnamon, ginger and licorice notes. Well balanced. Not incredibly strong or AMAZING but it’s a solid tea. Very appropriate for bed time. Enough so that I am ordering another 2 tins. I can stuggle with a little evening insomnia and every night I drank this tea……slept like a baby. Make sure you add half a tsp of raw organic honey….so delicious. Reminds me of cider.

mmmmm…now this is what I was craving the other morning when I ended up sipping on Teavana. I love this tea. What I love the most, is how it doesn’t taste artificial at all.

Folks this tasted like tea. All “flavored teas” should taste like tea….but with a little something more.

A lingering of sweet pumpkin (not just pumkin spice…actual pumpkin) and a delicate milkiness.

Delightful sip.

Well I guess I have been spoiled by high quality tea.

For an oolong the leaves are rather broken and looks a lot more like black tea but whatever.

I was feeling fall festive and noticed I had this in the pantry and hadn’t tried it yet. Felt like as good a time as any.

Well what I do notice is that it looks kinda gritty or filmy or something. Smells more like apple cider than pumpkin anything.

And the flavor is meh.

Not gonna be my seasonal favorite I’m afraid

ok….def vegetal….earthy. Spinach. But smooth yet sharp. A little buttery but not creamy. More earthy. Earthy is the word. Strongest flavor upfront is the spinach or leafy green flavor. It’s a good sip tho. Classic oolong for me.

Ok this is probably the oddest oolong for me. I guess I’m used to “green” oolong and all that grassy floral stuff

This reminds me of a toasty black tea. It’s only in the after notes that I recognize an oolong. It has a taste of roasted coffee and black tea and oddly…. A little roasted banana

Maybe I’m crazy. Quite possibly.

It’s a good sip tho. Would make an excellent morning oolong which doesn’t come across me often.

I like it

Still one of my favorite teas of all time. Just ordered a ton more….it’s my daily go to tea. Perfect blend of perfection…nothing needed…no sugar or milk or anything.

Just sipping perfection

Opening the pack…smells like grass and fields of flowers. Very pretty

Post brew (and most def do Gaiwan on this one. the leaves unroll like woah)smells Vegetal. Buttery. Soft.

Sipping….sweet, smooth, really nice buttery aftertaste…..light hint of floral on the tongue.

Very relaxing tea actually. A pleasant sip. :)

Thanks Teavivre for the awesome oolong sample! :)

I’m a cookie and dessert blogger from Texas….sort of. I love tea…always have…but since my husband and I cut out our nightly glass of wine the tea obsession has begun. Now I can’t get enough tea! I’m so glad I found this community. I learn a lot and it’s really fun.
