160 Tasting Notes
This is my first experience with puerh of any sort.
After rinsing, the aroma is reminiscent of seaweed, which unfortunately is not pleasant to me in a culinary sense, and the brewed color is surprisingly dark. Tastes also of seaweed or perhaps more of moss, with a somewhat lingering clean juiciness. Tried a second cup after more rinses (amazing how dark this is), and could not get past the earthiness of this even when not breathing in the aroma.
Interesting, and glad to have tried it, but don’t think it is for me.
Vanilla pudding tea is an apt description. This is very light on oolong flavor and tastes mostly of sweet and creamy vanilla, with a bit of floral in the fragrance.
Re-steeped with the same results.
I enjoyed this and found it tasty but do find I don’t reach for it, as would rather drink other teas; and for that reason wouldn’t repurchase at this time.
Dry leaf is vivid green, and once brewed remains bright and fresh in appearance.
Brewed tea color is very pale yellow, and the aroma is nutty and a bit spinach-like.
Tastes nutty as well, and is sweet and lightly buttery. Very clean, smooth and mellow without a hint of bitterness. First steep seemed the strongest but nice flavor in the three re-steeps that I did. Lovely and refreshing!
Thank you Angel/Teavivre!
My never fail evening tea. Creamy vanilla tea with a dash of cream – as satisfying as hot chocolate somehow even though this isn’t chocolate at all.
I’m glad to have this in loose leaf as can adjust the amount better, and find it brewed best with a couple minutes steep time. Yum!
I am not that fond of rooibos usually but this says it has coconut, which I do love.
The description on the foil sample package I have, lists coconut at the end of the ingredient list just before the flavouring…hmm…and I don’t really see or smell any coconut either..
Brewed, this tastes like cinnamon oil and cloves, and maybe some pepper; no coconut or much of anything else. I would say it is is spicy, but not natural tasting to me.
Not for me.
