9 Tasting Notes
Really interesting. Overall very light, but there are some very strong floral notes in there. Some sips are sweet. The aftertaste is somehow dry on the tongue, reminiscent of mint.
This tea was just fine. It doesn’t have the complexity I’ve come to expect in high-quality oolongs. It’s light, green, and sort of flat. I agree that this would be tasty with food.
Very delicious, light, floral, fragrant, with a slightly astringent aftertaste.
Quite pleasant. The aroma is toasty and the taste is very light and slightly fruity. I might try a longer steeping time to make this a little less light.
This is really a very, very nice tea. It’s nice and roasty-toasty, not as green as some other tie guan yins, but still not too dark. It’s just light and full of character. A great tea that I would love to drink every day.
This is a really interesting tea. I’ve had a lot of tie guan yins, and this is by far the greenest one I’ve had. It was… just very green. I thought I didn’t like it, but then I kept going back to it over and over again, so I guess I did like it! Probably not worth the money, but I’m glad I tried it.
I used a tea bag for this — it’s really a very nice black tea. Not as delicious as an oolong, but probably one of my favorite black teas. Better than PG Tips, I think.
This one is pretty good tea, but you have to be careful to use enough leaves. The leaves are very lightweight, so I recommend using more than a teaspoon per cup. I have used too few leaves before, and the result is a sort of woody taste. This tea is pretty good for everyday use, but it doesn’t have the delicious complexity of the best Taiwanese oolongs.
