474 Tasting Notes
God, this was tasty. It was a very nice earthy oolong, not too floral, and the coconut added a sweet note to it without taking over. I was expecting more of a coconut tea with an oolong kicker, but it was the other way around, which is awesome. This was just delicious. I wish I had more!
Ooops, forgot to log this one! Drank it Sunday morning.
This was a sweet and tasty cuppa, with a strong cherry flavour that I find is lacking from a lot of cherry teas. As it cooled, it brought out more of the tart and perfumey floral tastes, so I finished it off quickly. Don’t think I’ll reach for it again, but I enjoyed this cup.
I’ve tried this both sweetened and unsweetened, and I think I agree with Tina that the flavour really shines with a bit of sweetener – which, unfortunately, makes it too sweet for me. Oh the ironies.
Anyway. This is a very delicious black tea nonetheless, and without any sugar or milk it has a mellow flavour with a bit of an orange and citrus taste.
I have been craving an orange black lately, so I reached for this sample we got in a swap. I was unfortunately disappointed. It was an overwhelmingly average black tea with a faint hint of bitter orange peel at the tail end of the sip. Sadface. This calls for a gaiwan of something wonderful.
Someone from the Toronto Tea Party shared a sample of this with me (Tina? Adrienne? I don’t even know any more.) and I finally got around to trying it. First thing I got hit with was the orange, a very sweet and creamy orange, but with the heavy aftertaste I get from most rooibos teas. Tasty experiment, but I don’t think I’ll reach for it again.
