240 Tasting Notes
Lately I have been wanting an inexpensive, plain, non-fussy tea that I can just brew up a pot of. I want to be able to add a bunch of milk in my cup and drink without much thought. And I want it easily accessible in case I want more.
So since I finally had a chance to go shopping, I picked up this in the hopes it would be good.
And happily, I am quite pleased! It brews up a dark and bold, tastes malty and nutty without any peatiness, and has a lovely buckwheat honey sweetness. Makes a delicious pot of tea that I can smother in milk, and even resteeps well with a more nutty taste in the second cup, (although I greatly reduce the water in the second steep).
So, quite happy with my new plain, yet very satisfying tea!
Beautiful fresh dark green leaf that reminds me of delicate steamed greens once brewed.
Fragrant aroma and taste which is sweet and floral, with butter, vanilla and a bit of savory green/grass.
This is really a gorgeous tea that provided many delicious steeps.
Thanks to Tea Ave for the lovely opportunity to try this!
Half a sample packet in about 75 ml water. Several rinses of which I tasted. Steeps of about 10-15 seconds.
Initial sips were bitter with astringency, especially when hot, and even more so when tasting the first few steeps. Once the cup cooled, the bitter notes were still present but enjoyable.
Taste is a bit fruity and hay-like with a bit of smoke, and a peppery tingle which lingers. It sort of gives the impression of warmth and coolness at the same time but not sure how to describe that well.
This could go many more steeps I think but I only drank a few for now, and although this wouldn’t be my favorite tea, am happy to have tried it and do look forward to trying it again another time.
Thanks to Angel and Teavivre for sending this sample to try!
This is a very fragrant tea! The jasmine is full and crisply fresh, and blends beautifully with the milky oolong. Smooth and creamy to sip with a breathtaking aroma.
Quite outstanding, and anyone who is a fan of jasmine will certainly love this.
Thanks so much to Tea Ave for sending this sample to try!
I really love this tea blend! When I ordered this, I knew I would probably enjoy it; I was absolutely right, and have been drinking it a lot!
This has everything I love in a tea. Not fussy, good anytime of day, resteeps wonderfully for another cup, and most important – so delicious!
Beautiful dry leaf that brews a fulfilling, smooth and and perfectly balanced cup of tea, with notes of honeyed malt, cocoa, pastries and a hint of fruitiness.
This is my perfect anytime tea, and I actually wish I bought more than just one tin!
