9 Tasting Notes

A taste unlike any tea I’ve ever known. The aroma is for all the world like Rolo candies, and as you drink it, the caramel smell translates into a smooth, milky drinking experience. I think even tea haters would like this one!

Creamy cocoa and suggestions of fruit. Lovely and sweet!

Very smooth on the second infusion, still like cocoa but creamier. Sweet and velvety!

I got some notes of chocolate mousse on mine as well (the velvety that you describe). It is excellent.

Fruity and smooth, almost a hint of smokiness. Very smooth and peachy. Might become one of my favorites!

Ben Livingstone

Like sugar in an advanced stage of caramelization! Similar, yet quite different from the first infusion. Slight vegetal hints along with the assertive stone-fruit flavours.

Surprisingly neon green liquor, flowery aroma ( a lot like lilacs), and pleasantly astringent, refreshing flavor. Like sticking your nose in a fresh bouquet!

Ben Livingstone

With the second infusion, this tea seems to get sweeter, and perhaps more flowery, although there are more levels to explore.

Almost a grape aroma and taste, slightly astringent. Pleasant aftertaste, with high floral notes.

The second infusion is sweet and fruity. Full and pleasant with an almost tingly aftertaste. Suggestion of roasted tree nuts. Very nice!

I’m noticing a sort of cocoa flavor this time. How complex!

Quite nice! Seems almost malty, like an Indian tea, but sweet because of the tips. Aroma reminds me of cocoa, like a Keemun. Quite full, even at first infusion. Looking forward to the second!

Ben Livingstone

Second infusion bolder and more astringent, but also slightly sweeter, I think. More of a maple syrup quality. It is definitely worth infusing more than once.

Ben Livingstone

More chocolatey, too!

Nice and sweet! Seems quite bright, with an intriguing aroma, complex flavor. Seems to have a honeyed character, smells like a deciduous forest in the middle of spring. Reminds me of the smell of horses, somehow. First infusion only-expecting great things from the next one! Once again, drink without milk or sugar!

Ben Livingstone

Second infusion is even better! The flavor comes up in a groundswell, and the aroma becomes even more honeyed and smooth. It’s almost velvety!

Quite a wonderful tea. Intriguingly spicy and sweet, with an interesting undertone of semisweet chocolate! Unblended. Don’t use sugar or milk, just let this wonderful tea speak for itself!
