198 Tasting Notes
I wanted to compare this to Teavivre’s Premium version so brewed a cup of each and re-steeped both.
For some reason it’s difficult to compare them today, and am unable to decide which I prefer. I feel that this one is fruitier and a bit more floral, but I can’t describe the difference more accurately. Both are really good!
Similar to laoshan black with a dark chocolate, roasty aroma, but there is also a more earthy note and a hint of smokiness to this one.
Flavor is chocolate, malt, sweet potato, honey, some floral and a bit of mushroom earthiness. Second steep becomes stronger in honey aroma and tastes sweeter and creamier.
This is so good!! It is similar to the laoshan black, but in a lighter, less toasty way, and has more of the earthy potato notes with honey that I love. Both are delicious and I’m not sure I could pick a favorite.. but perhaps it would be this one simply because I happen to be drinking it right now. Love it!
Drinking a small pot of this today. Smooth, mellow with earthy sweet potatoes and a bit of caramel.
The last time I drank this I got some citrus notes which I don’t get now; this is more lightly earthy… still really good and easy to drink, and I like it.
Steeped at 190F for 2 1/2 minutes.
Aroma is creamy, buttery and sweet – a!most candy-like. Tastes very creamy and very sweet with a very light mineral note, and maybe even a bit nutty. No floral.
I don’t think I cared for this that much the first time I tried it, but it tasted good now. I did prefer it to the Teavivre milk oolong I just had, probably because of the strong floral component I found in that one. The leaves in this davidstea oolong weren’t as lovely though – more broken with brown bits.
But, quite a tasty cup of tea, and almost like drinking candy.
Thank you, Courtney, for sending this surprise to me in our swap!
This is really tasty! The aroma is soft and lovely with spice and vanilla, and it tastes very much like carrot cake – sweet and delicious. I added cream to my cup, and it was so good – a perfect treat!
My second tea to try from Butiki, thanks to the lovely swap package from Courtney!
This is the one I have been waiting for! Wow, this is really unique and delicious!
The aroma is fragrant and rich with caramel and spice. The taste is so sweet, rich and smooth, with notes of the spices and caramel combined with dark honey and fruit. It’s almost like eating a bakery product – so good!!
Thank you Courtney for sharing this delicious tea!
