38 Tasting Notes
This is my second tea from the Steepster Select box.
First impression – I began steeping this tea and within a few seconds the smell of this tea was absolutely amazing. It has a lush honey smell with a sweet fresh cut tobacco undertone.
First sip – Crisp and sweet with absolutely no bitterness. Nice and mild and quite fragrant (in a good way).
It has some of the flavors that I like in a good green tea but with a much sweeter base and a nice deep tobacco flavor. I like this quite well without any sugar or cream. It’s a nice flavor and a great tea. I think this is a new favorite. Highest rating i have given a tea yet.
Edit – This tea gets even sweeter as it cools! Yummmmm!
This is a nice chai, I really enjoyed the experience of purchasing it at the Port Townsend location in Washington while visiting family.
This chai is good for those who like to have less spice and more tea. The spices have a slight saltiness to them that is different from most of the chai I have had, it’s very pleasant.
The flavors of tea are nice, although I like more spice and less tea flavor in my chai. The cardamom is very strongly expressed and the other spices have a sweet, warm, cinnamon expression. This was lovely to drink on a cold hazy morning overlooking the water with my dad.
The first cup of this is very smooth with a slight grain tang that is really appealing and warm. It’s very springy and lush with a complex liquorish feel. This cup really mellows as it cools.
The second cup was even better. I think the leaves opened up and have had time to expand the palette of this tea. It’s very buttery and nutty with a nice smooth end to each sip. The flavors are very deep and like others have said it does have a “chewy” feel to it. As it cooled this tea became really citrusy.
The flavors that explain tea are nutty, citrusy, spring, and grassy.
Overall this is a wonderful and yummy cup. It’s clean, palatable and very fresh.
This tea is very warm and yummy. It’s not that aromatic but it does have a bit a flowery flavor. I like this because it’s nice and savory with a tiny bit of sweet. Very good overall.
Edit: As it cooled down it became a little bit more open and airy. Quite nice.
Had this tea yesterday afternoon. It was delicious. It has a very nice calm white tea flavor with a great floral element that is not too overpowering as some have said. As I sipped this one more and it cooled down a bit it became creamier and had a nice warming feel to it.
I like jasmine teas and this one is one of my favorites, it’s almost as good as jasmine pearls.
I could see myself cuddling up with a cup of this at the end of a long day. Just not today because I’m having chai right now.
