17 Tasting Notes
Too sweet, too much like bubble gum perfume.
It’s ok this tea. I love the way it smells, really, really awesome. But it is too much perfume for me. It is too heavily scented.
YA! So hard for me to even imagine that a tea other then Marco Polo could rock my world so much, this one comes close. It’s like sitting in a peach orchard having a picnic, on a sweet summer day with not a care in the world discussing how beautiful the world is, feeling how beautiful life is. it is very perfect this tea. the alchemy of the flavoring, hits that perfect note. Also I have noticed that mariage freres tea that comes in the tin is so much more fresh and alive, then their tea not in the tin. And the ingredients are just such high quality – unmistakingly high. (that word is not spelled right, but I don’t know how to spell it)
I was not impressed with this tea. Yes I love the smell of violet, but the tea did not smell or taste fresh and alive to me. Almost stale and muted.
I love, love, love, love, love this tea. It is my first oolong that I have appreciated, very delicate and earthy and I added honey cause I couldn’t help myself, was craving sweet, and it was just tres wonderful. It is my new most favorite tea.
This tea is nice, but not as lovely as its sister from Rishi “silver need jasmine”.
When I first put this tea in my mouth, I had an experience that I have never had before with tea. It was enlightening that I could experience such delight from a tea. So delicate, like fragrant wind with the sweet smell of jasmine. Such a beautiful tea. I will never forget that first sip.
Even though it was white, it reminded me of a black tea. It is a strong white tea and there is a wild flower honey scent, less floral, more honey. The more I drank it, the more I liked it. I don’t usually add honey to my white tea, but I thought for this one, “let’s just try it”. It actually worked quite well. And I steeped it all day – 4 delicious cups. Which is the first and only time I have steeped the leaves again and actually liked the second cup.
When I saw a photo of the tea, I had to get it. Ins’t it Beautiful?! This tea is really nice, it feels like a soft bang in the morning, sweet but firm. I like it! I don’t know how to describe it well yet, as I am new to drinking tea, but I can say this: I like this tea, but not as much as Marco Polo.
